CRUISE ON LOCH NESS

See Loch Ness from boats which departs regularly from Fort Augustus. Prices vary, please phone 01320 366277.

 BIRD WATCHING

From your bedroom window you can see a wide variety of birds including martins and swallows, and with a little patience, rarer birds of prey can be seen in the area, including the most regal of all the Golden Eagle. Divers and the rare Slavenian Grebe nest on the local lochs. A short drive away there is an R.S.P.B. reserve. This activity is free

GOLF

There are many famous and interesting Golf courses within easy reach of the Hotel.
Fort Augustus ~ lovely setting beside the canal, this nine hole course welcomes visitors at very reasonable cost. (9 miles)
Inverness has two eighteen hole courses. Both are very attractive and offer all facilities. (25 miles)
Aigas, a nine hole course amid the magnificent scenery of Strathglass and well worth a visit. (40 miles)
There are other courses at Nairn, Fort William and the famous Royal Course at Dornoch if you don't mind travelling a little bit further

CAR TRIPS 
Most of the Highlands can be explored on day trips from the Hotel, even a day trip to Orkney.

Whitebridge is very central in the Highlands. Some suggested day trips include:

Fort William and the Aonach Mhor Gondolas
Oban
Skye
The Whisky Trail
Cawdor Castle
Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre
Fort George
The Black Isle
Aviemore and the Cairngorm Mountain Funicular
The Highland Folk Museum

For the more adventurous, places like John O'Groats, please ask for an early breakfast so that you will have enough time to explore if you go a little further afield.

May we suggest, for example. a cruise on Loch Ness from Fort Augustus and return home round Loch Ness visiting the Exhibition at Drumnadrochit and looking for "NESSIE"

or

A visit to Tomatin Distillery, back along the peat road, where you will usually catch a glimpse of Red Deer or a Golden Eagle, to Strathnairn and a tour of the craft shops of Strathnairn and Stratherrick and a visit to the Herb Nursery at Brin

or

A leisurely stroll down the Dell to Foyers (4 miles) visiting the Falls while in Foyers, back for a bar lunch or a trip to Drumnadrochit where you can visit Urquhart Castle.

or

A trip to Aviemore, a quick browse around the shops followed by a ride on the railway up Cairngorm to the Restaurant for lunch, then on to Kingussie for the Highland Folk Museum, or Newtonmore, then home along the A86, via Laggan and Spean Bridge.

These are just one or two suggestions, for further information on any of the previous ideas please ask at reception.
