Loch Ness and the Highlands

Highland road

Please call for details

Loch Ness is about much more than an elusive beastie! Here a host of smaller lochs appear to hold the sky beneath their surfaces and ancient ruins languish at the water’s edge. Battlefields long silent and castles made famous by Shakespeare sit side-by-side with woodland that is home to a dazzling array of wildlife. The misty peaks and vast, fern covered landscapes that surround it all only add to the sense that this is a place where history and folklore remain largely inseparable.
