About the Area
A huge range of attractions are within easy reach of this part of the highlands, especially for those with their own transport.
Within easy walking distance is the historic site of the last battle on British soil at Culloden in 1746. The National Trust for Scotland operates a visitor centre here which is one of the most visited sites in Scotland. Also close by is the Bronze Age burial site at Clava, while slightly further afield is the medieval castle at Cawdor, of Shakespeare’s MacBeth fame. Visitors can explore the interior of this original castle as well as the gardens and ancient forest which make up the surrounding policies.
Half an hour’s drive away is the Cairngorm National Park which now boasts a funicular railway trip to the top of Cairngorm Mountain. In the same area, at Boat of Garten, is the RSPB visitor site where the Osprey may be viewed feeding its young on the nest in early summer, and red squirrels abound in the native pine forest.
From Inverness centre, tours run daily to Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle, in search of the elusive Loch Ness Monster – a ‘must do’ on any visit to the area.
For those interested in antiquity there is an excellent museum dedicated to local artefacts in Inverness and another Pictish museum in the lovely village of Rosemarkie on the Black Isle. Also here, in the neighbouring village of Cromarty, is the thatched 18th century cottage which was home to Hugh Miller, the father of modern geology, where a marvellous range of artefacts is on view including locally gathered fossils. Another experience not to be missed is the re-enacted court cases of the 1700’s in the Old Courthouse in Cromarty.
Of course Speyside is the heart of the malt whisky trade and there is an abundance of pure malt distilleries to visit.
For the outdoor enthusiast, the highlands offer an unbeatable range of pursuits from mountain climbing and hill walking to fishing, golf, pony trekking, kayaking, windsurfing or paragliding.
Our caravan is sited in a natural, rural landscape and does not have a laundry block, man-made play area or restaurant, but the local inn is just a few minutes walk away and entertainment is available at weekends. Bar lunches and evening meals are on offer throughout the week.
Last but not least, you can be assured of a genuine highland welcome and we will do our best to make your stay a memorable and enjoyable one. We look forward to meeting you.
