Easter Weekend on the Caledonian Canal

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Well the weather is set to be fine for the Easter week holiday. Time flies and winter looks to be well and truly behind us now. We are planning to have a walk along the Caledonian Canal probably from Fort Augustus and while we are at Fort Augustus will have a short riverside walk to look for Kingfishers. We have seen them here before but only once as are not common around here I think we are on their northernmost boundary.  

The main thing is to get out there and enjoy the mild spring weather and have a nice Easter break everyone.      

Activity Holidays at Loch Ness

Friday, October 15th, 2010

We really have a great selection of activity holiday ideas nowadays at Loch Ness. I remember a year or two ago there was very little in the way of organised guided walking or activity centres around here, but now it seems, the lie on a hot beach for a week type of holiday seems to be on the wane we get more and more demand for canoeing, mountain biking, hiking, paintballing etc. from folk wanting fast and furious outdoor experiences  and Loch Ness area has risen to the demand. There is very little in the way of outdoor activities that we cannot cater for now just look at the choice and variety in our activity holidays page. Now I do not presume that holidays in the sun are a thing of the past, they most certainly are not, but perhaps with good roads and fast trains, and flights to Inverness and other parts of the Highlands being so much better now than they were, more and more of the city folks are choosing to get away for strenuous and exhilerating activity holiday in between their holidays in the sun.  Loch Ness makes an excellent base for all types of ourdoor enthusiasts, chances are you won’t get burnt by the sun but you really will have fun! and we have the best selection of accommodation in Inverness and Loch Ness to suit all budgets.
