The Great Glen is also one of the best places for spotting wildlife in Scotland. From birds of prey to deer and various creatures in between, keep an eye out while out walking or even while taking in the views from the apartment windows!

On the water

Local lochs, including the nearby Loch Ness, are an excellent source of entertainment during your stay. The famous Loch Ness is within minutes of our property, granting you access to numerous water activities. Travelling the short distance down to Fort Augustus is also recommended for supporting local tourism industries.

Fishing and boating along the Loch Ness can be discussed as part of your stay, although is subject to availability. Alternatively, we recommend local businesses such as ‘Beastie Boats’ (www.beastieboats.com) and ‘Fish Loch Ness’ (www.fishlochness.com) for all of your fishing and boating needs along Loch Ness. 

We also own a 22ft, 5.0 V8 engine called ‘Auntie Cathie’ which is available for water sports lovers who visit us. With 300 horsepower Auntie Cathy guarantees a good day on the Loch. Please let us know if this is something you would be interested in prior to booking.
