Self Catering Log Cabins in Scotland
Deep and mysterious, Loch Ness is probably Scotland’s most famous loch. It stretches for 23 miles and is part of the Caledonian Canal, a remarkable engineering feat linking the east and west coasts. You can make a complete circuit of the loch by road, pausing along the way to visit some of its best-known beauty spots.
Stop at Urquhart Castle on the west shore to explore the ruins and admire the fabulous, panoramic views across the water. Learn more about the castle’s turbulent history and buy local souvenirs in the visitor centre next door. If Nessie has caught your imagination, spend some time at the Loch Ness Monster Exhibition in the small town of Drumnadrochit. Enjoy the exciting high-tech presentation that tells the story of the loch’s legendary inhabitant.
Watch pleasure boats navigating the staircase of locks at Fort Augustus, the village at its southernmost end. Take a stroll along the towpath, visit the Caledonian Canal Heritage Centre or go for a short cruise on the loch. On the quieter eastern shore, walk to the viewpoint overlooking two impressive waterfalls at Foyers. Then take a break at the popular Dores Inn. From here you have a spectacular view of the loch dramatically framed by the mountains behind.
For more leisurely exploration of the countryside, go walking, cycling or pony trekking along one of the many woodland trails in the surrounding hills. Or fish for salmon and trout in the clear rivers and small lakes that dot the landscape. And don’t forget that self catering doesnt mean you have to cook every night, why not try one of the local restaurants in the area.
