Ness Island to Caledonian Canal
When visiting the city of Inverness itself it is well worth visiting the Ness Islands. Here an array of quaint and magical islands interconnect via a series of victorian bridges. And whatever time of year you visit they always have something special to offer. Cocooned by mature trees you can wind your way around, exploring various bays and clearings. And if you fancy an evening stroll it is lit up at night adding some extra magic!
Caledonian Canal walks
Our Highland Lassie boat is berthed right on the Caledonian Canal so this is on your doorstep if you stay with us. Here you can wander the towpath and explore all it has to offer. An abundance of wildlife inhabits many of the various habitats along the way. As you wander along you can take in an array of gorgeous scenery including Loch Ness and the surrounding mountains. Being part of the Great Glen there are many spectacular views to behold. And from here you can explore the South Loch Ness Trail too.
Great Walks Around Inverness
South Loch Ness Trail
Forming part of the circular Loch Ness 360 loop the South Loch Ness Trail follows the south side of Loch Ness. A mixture of forest tracks, minor roads and a purpose-built trail form this walkway. Starting in Torbeck this wonderful trail takes in a variety of interesting sites. Suidhe Viewpoint and the Caledonian Canal are just a couple. Additionally, you will not only take in beautiful scenery but historical sites to such as Aldourie Castle, Dun Dearduil and Fort Augustus Abbey.
Craig Phadrig Fort
This lovely walk offers wonderful scenery at any time of a year and has some fascinating history too. Craig Phadrig Fort, built around 300BC in the Iron Age can still be seen today. Although all that is left an oval shape mound on top of the hill you can still lose yourself in the history it has seen over the years. Furthermore, as you meander through the trees you will catch glimpses of the Beauly Firth. Starting in the Forestry car park in Leachkin Brae you follow a well-signposted path up the hill. From here you follow its tracks until you get to the grassy clearing where this fort once stood.Contact Us
