Walking in the Highlands
Inverness is the perfect base for a number of stunning walks in the Highlands.
Here are some of our favourite walks.
The Ness Islands walk is a real Inverness institution. Our choice would be to complete the short walk with either a hot coffee or a cooling beer in the Castle Tavern where well behaved dogs are welcome in the outside seating area.
Nairn Beach is well worth a visit. The main beach is near the bandstand close to the town centre. From Easter onwards the cafe sells ice creams and snacks. There is also East beach which offers vast sands for a long walk.
Ben Wyvis is the closest Munro to Inverness. You can leave your vehicle in the car park on the A895. The path is reasonably well signposted. However, we still recommend that you take a map.
Loch Affric boasts one of Scotland’s few remaining native pine forests. There is a car park at the East of the loch. The circular route of the loch is about 11miles. The drive to Glen Affric is stunning.
