Loch Ness and the Great Glen

Drumnadrochit (2 miles away) is the focus for the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition, with nearby Urquhart Castle a further popular option. The Great Glen Way is popular with walkers and cyclists.

Loch Ness is perhaps Scotland's best known loch. Even without its monster phenomenon, its dramatic setting and scale would still make it a commanding attraction. It is a popular excursion from Loch Ness Glamping and various operators offer cruises.

Highland Heartland

Drive west from Loch Ness Glamping to Strathglass and take the Glen Affric road from Cannich. Glen Affric is often described as the most beautiful glen in Scotland. It has tracts of native Scots Pine woods and a backdrop of high mountains.

The glen is great for wildlife watching, mountain biking, walking and simply enjoying the wild outdooors.

Culloden

Culloden is the site of the last battle fought on the British mainland. The National Trust for Scotland have restored the site to look as much as possible as it did in 1745. Their Culloden Visitor Centre tells the story in an innovative and moving way.

Highland Riding Centre

BHS approved family fun for all ages and abilities at the Highland Riding Centre at Borlum.
