We will visit Inverness this weekend. We will drive from Montrose early Saturday morning and reach Inverness / Loch Ness around 10-11 am. We would like to take a boat trip. Which would be the best way to arrange our itinerary? Should I directly drive to Fort Augustus and take the boat trip or do you suggest an alternative?
I also appreciate your boat trip suggestions.Thank you for your help.
Hi there, I am currently staying in Lentran (just outside Inverness) with my husband and two children (ages 14 and 6). We are looking for some suggestions that will take us off the beaten track a little after spending some time today on the North side of Loch Ness. While we loved South Side of Loch Ness, the north side was far too touristy for our liking and too crowded. We are hoping for some suggestions for good walks where we can see the beauty of the highlands in its wilder state. We are very active people - we just climbed Snowden a few days ago and loved that. More of that sort of activity is what we are looking for here. We are looking to explore the North Highlands as well as the central Highlands. We are here until this Saturday and would appreciate any suggestions that will help us to see the scenery that we have heard so much about.
Thanks so much.
Unable to make a decision: please share (budget friendly) suggestions/tips! Rent car from Edinburgh airport and leave early first Saturday in August. Drive to Falkirk Wheel, Stirling Castle, Glencoe ...and then what? Most seem to head to Skye. We want to see the beauty and uniqueness of Scotland...should we skip Skye and go to Fort William, Loch Ness (Urquhart Castle), spend the night somewhere near Inverness or somewhere in the Cairngorms park. Make our way down the A9 and head back towards airport for car return around 4ish, then head to St. Andrews conference.
An overnight tour is not possible since they return around 7 pm and we need to take a train/bus to St. Andrews by 5. My ideal would be to drive all the way around the coast Scotland, but not enough time to do that. My one touristy pleasure would be to take the Jacobite steam train, but again! not enough time.
We are not golfers, and my husband enjoys some dram but would be more interested in salmon farming than a distillery. We would be thrilled to see some coos along the way. Many thanks!!
