Excellent way to spend afternoon go for a walk around the loch! North side is spectacular. However the whole image is little disapointing due to building construction traffic. Other than that great

A great place to explore an amazing woodlands restoration project where forest has been allowed to regenerate for 27 years without sheep 🐑 or deer 🦌 grazing pressure. Well worth the ramble.

This is a very quite area of Scotland considering Loch Ness is just down the road. The Dog Falls walk offers a pleasant 1.5 hour walk which is moderately strenuous.

This was our favorite Glen in all of Scotland. The walk was beautiful, quiet, remote, and uncrowded. If you walk clockwise, it starts along an unattractive road, but keep walking because soon it opens up to an amazing loch and the trail goes all the...More

Yes, some lovely short trails. My nephews enjoyed the River Affric walk from the top car park, where there’s also a very short trail up to a view point. You could take them to see the stags in Glen Cannich very nearby.
