Touring – Invermoriston is centrally placed in the magnificent Highlands of Scotland, so having ‘Bracadale’ as a base makes it easy to tour the many sites of interest, as well as the beautiful countryside which stretches out in all directions.

Loch Ness – It is just a few mintues walk to the shores of the beautiful Loch Ness, which is some 23 miles long, over 700 feet deep and holds a greater volume of water than all the lakes of England and Wales combined – which probably explains the extremely infrequent sightings of the legendary ‘Loch Ness Monster’. Cruises on the loch can be arranged in Fort Augustus on board the very well equiped ‘Royal Scot’. Cruises can also be arranged in Drumnadrochit, the location of the original Loch Ness Monster centre.

Walking – The Great Glen Way is a few minutes walk from ‘Bracadale’. This walking route, which was opened in 2000, is an extension of the West Highland Way, which gives walkers the chance of walking from Glasgow to Inverness via Fort William. The Great Glen Way follows the Caledonian canal, Lochs Lochy, Oich and Ness on a mix of tow paths and forest tracks. Taking in some of the finest scenery to be had.

Cycling – The Great Glen Cycle route is similar to the Great Glen Way. The route is for mountain bikers.

Munro Bagging – If you are interested in climbing Munros – mountains exceeding 3,000ft/914.4m – you can ‘bag’ many of them, e.g. Sgurr a ‘ Bhealaich Dheirg (Peak of the Red Pass – 3378ft) and Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe (Peak of the Black Chest – 3369ft), just a few minutes drive along the A887.

Fishing – Fishing trips on Loch Ness can be arranged at various venues. Hill loch and river fishing can also be arranged locally. Fish to be caught include Salmon, the elusive Ferox trout, wild Brown trout, Arctic Char and Pike.

Shooting – With adequate notice, clay target shooting can be arranged at the Loch Ness Gun Club, which is just two miles up the road.
