Our most visited attractions and activities

A must see, one of the most well known attractions in the UK, Urquhart Castle sits nestled on the shores of Loch Ness. Travel back in time with a 1000 years of history to be immersed in, or gaze from a whole new perspective with a five star cruise from Loch Ness by Jacobite or Cruise Loch Ness

In 1746 Bonnie Prince Charlie's Jacobite army stood at Culloden Battlefield in what would be their final attempt to restore his family to the British throne. Walk in his footsteps and learn their story in an immersive theatre at the site of the last pitched battle on British soil. 
After the battle King George built the biggest artillery fortification in Britain, if not Europe, Fort George - to protect against further unrest. See the mighty cannons, explore the garrison buildings and visit the five star Highlanders Museum with over 50,000 artefacts - the largest military collection in Scotland outside of Edinburgh.

Just a few miles away sits the four thousand year old Clava Cairns, in the shadow of Scotland's longest masonry viaduct with its 29 towering arches. With all this and so much more what are you waiting for?

Everyday is bed hair day

At least our coo's are perfectly built for the harsh winter with their shaggy coats to keep them warm! Our friends are also just like us, enjoying one too many meals before getting on the scales to find you weigh 800kg's!

Though at least they can run it off at up to 25mph - although we've no idea if they can see where they're going with their long fringe. They're iconic, renowned for their friendly nature and usually out in the rain having a great time - what better way can there be to get to know the locals. 

One for the bucket list

A transformational experience for those lucky enough to see the sky come alive and dance. Loch Ness is home to some of the darkest places in the UK, with night skies so filled by stars it must be seen to be believed.

Longer hours of darkness from November to March provide plenty of opportunity to look up to the skies from secluded Glen or Mountain viewpoint - you just never know.

Whether you're lucky enough to witness a performance or not, breathing in the mountain air, with only the sound of nature for company, sounds like a great way to spend a dark night to us - and there's always a hot fire and local food waiting for whenever you choose to call it a night.
