Ord Hill

Just five minutes from our Bed & Breakfast is the historic Ord Hill and it’s stunning forested pathways. Many say the circular route around the hill is the best view of Inverness, and who are we to disagree, but it also boasts the few remains of an Iron Age fort at summit (640 ft) which would have dominated the area (along with the local Craig Phadrig, which is in Inverness).

Address: Ord Hill, Inverness, Highland, IV1 3ZG

The Fairy Glen

Situated just on the outskirts of the charming village of Rosemarkie, twenty minutes from the Bed & Breakfast, you can visit the beautiful Fairy Glen. A woodland path with small bridges which leads to waterfalls. This is a super hour-long activity for groups with or without children.

Address: Bridge Street, Rosemarkie, Ross-shire IV10 8UP

Just five minutes from The A9 (the main trunk road north), 15 minutes south of Inverness, is the small but lively village of Carrbridge. It is home to the oldest stone bridge in the Highlands, built in 1717, which we love and think is well worth a visit. The nearby ancient pine forest contains the Landmark Forest Adventure Park which is extremely popular with children and families especially.

Loch an Eilein

Loch an Eilein is an extremely beautiful loch, situated within a glen, with the beautiful Rothiemurchus Forest all around. A ruined island castle, built in the 15th century by the Wolf of Badenoch, makes this one of the most popular short walks in Scotland. A 2k cycle route around the loch is also popular.

Address: Loch an Eilein, Rothiemurchus, PH22 1QT
