The south side of Loch Ness
Several way marked trails are suitable for walkers and cyclists. This quieter side of the loch is characterized by an abundance of wildlife: roe and red deer, badger, red squirrel and pine marten, while birdwatchers may see golden eagle, osprey, red kite or red grouse.
Glenurquhart House, close to Loch Ness and Glen Affric National Nature Reserve, is an excellent touring base for visits and day trips to a huge variety of attractions in the Scottish highlands such as castles, gardens, museums, whisky distilleries, waterfalls and for activities such as bird and wildlife watching. Also Ben Nevis and Glencoe, the Isle of Skye, the Cairngorms National Park, the North-West Highland coast and the Whisky Trail are all within 2 hours drive of your accommodation.
