Things To Do in Balnain, Nr Inverness

Nestled on the banks of Loch Ness, Drumnadrochit is a popular destination with visitors to the Scottish Highlands. The village has a handful of shops and places to eat, and it’s not far from here to Inverness.

Loch Ness is one of the most-visited areas of Scotland. This 23-mile-long stretch of water offers beautiful views from every side. It’s a great place to holiday with your dog as there walking paths of varying lengths all around the water. Dores Beach is a pebbly spot where you can find peace and quiet, plus there are red squirrels and wild birds to look out for as well.

The southern side of the loch is less busy and offers gentle hills, areas of woodland and some hidden fishing spots that fishermen enjoy. Nearby there is the Falls of Foyers to visit where water tumbles down rocks into a gorge. History buffs will enjoy Urquhart Castle – this ruin still has a tower to climb and the prison cells are still intact too.

Brodie Castle is a few miles away but there are tour guides who will tell you everything about this magnificent grand house. With art on the walls and antique furniture to admire, there’s a lot to see here. Inverness is the capital of the Highlands and is a lively city crammed with things to do.

There’s a castle here, but only in name. It’s actually a courthouse but it offers great views if you climb to admire the building.

There are shops of every kind here, and some are unique to the area, such as the tweed shop. An art gallery, museum and cathedral can be found as well. And come dinner time there are plenty of places to eat from budget-friendly cafes to fine dining restaurants
