If ever you would get enough of the local area we can suggest some trips further afield. We have compiled a selection of trips based on our own experience. Most of these trips can be done in a day or even half a day.

The Landmark Centre Forest Theme Park at Carrbridge offers a day out for all the family (including the dog!). Carrbridge is about 45 minutes from us. Website

Loch Ness - Fort Augustus and Loch Laggan A good day trip via Inverness, then down to Fort Augustus on either side of Loch Ness and back along Loch Laggan. Catch a glimpse of Ardverikie House (aka Glen Bogle) across the water, then back via Newtonmore, Aviemore and Grantown.

Glen Affric is a beautiful glen on the other side of Loch Ness. A good area for walking and site of Scotland's highest waterfall.

Dolphin watching at Chanonry Point A few miles north of Inverness is Chanonry point, the narrowest water between the Moray Firth and the Beauly Firth. This is where the dolphins wait for the salmon to flow through with the tides and they can be spotted just a few metres away from the shoreline.

Ullapool and Corrieshalloch Gorge Towards the north west coast, the Corrieshalloch Gorge is a spectacular 61m deep canyon spanned by a suspension footbridge and is about 12 miles from Ullapool. Ullapool itself is worth a visit with the seals in it's harbour, the shops and the surrounding scenery. Or even the drive towards Ullapool is worth the drive! Website

Bullers of Buchan 25 miles north of Aberdeen in northeast Scotland, the Bullers of Buchan is a collapsed sea cave forming an almost circular chasm some 30 metres deep, where the ocean rushes in through a natural archway. The cliff scenery here is spectacular and seabirds of many species such as Puffins, Kittiwakes, Guillemots and Razorbills proliferate during the spring and summer, when wild flowers including campion, heather and orchids colour the cliff tops.

Crovie, Gardenstown, Pennan Three very pretty small fishing villages on the north-east coast. Pennan is world famous (at least in Scotland) as the setting of the film 'Local Hero'. Website

Fort William and the Road to the Isles To the south west, Fort William at the foot of the Nevis range is the outdoor capitol of the UK. From here the Road to the Isles is a 43 mile route to the ferryport of Mallaig, passing the beautiful Glenfinnan area.
