Activities - Things to Do

River Fishing

The Highlands of Scotland are well known to thrill seekers, adrenaline junkies and to lovers of wildlife and the natural world. Our particular part of the Highlands, Inverness and Loch Ness, is the hub for activity seeking visitors as just about every activity you could wish to experience in Scotland may be experienced here - all set against a breath-taking backdrop of stunning Highland scenery.

On the water you could spend a relaxing day fishing for salmon, trout, sea-trout, char or pike - or try your hand at sailing or canoeing on the Loch or Caledonian Canal.

There is a multitude of walking trails around Loch Ness and Inverness that caters for all abilities, from challenging hill walks and long distance hikes along the Great Glen Way, the Affric Kintail Way and the South Loch Ness Trail to accessible riverside walks in the heart of Inverness city that are suitable for anyone and everyone. Don't forget your bikes (or hire them here)! They are a wonderful way to explore the Great Glen trails, villages, forests and the Caledonian Canal.

If you're feeling more energetic, there are plenty of adventure sports on offer in the area – off road quads, mountain biking, wind surfing, paragliding and skiing on the Nevis and Cairngorms Ranges. When it is raining why not spend a day at Inverness Ice Centre and try your hand at skating or curling. Remember, Scotland is the home of golf, so don't forget to pack your clubs for a round of golf during your holiday - we can accommodate you with a different course for every day you stay here.
