South Loch Ness
For those in search of calm and respite, the south side of Loch Ness is a perfect escape. While sites like the famed Urquhart Castle on the northern shores of Loch Ness certainly attract thousands of visitors annually, there is an abundance of sights and activities to discover on the Loch’s lesser visited south side.
For nature lovers, the South Loch Ness Hiking Trail is a firm favourite to explore this quiet paradise. The trail, which passed its 11th anniversary back in August, covers an epic 36-mile route starting on the outskirts of Inverness at Torbreck and officially ends at village of Fort Augustus. Hikers, mountain bikers and horse riders embarking on their trek can expect magnificent views of Loch Ness and encounter a delightful array of local wildlife and colourful flora on their way.
