Wander the waterside ruins of Urquhart Castle (1.5 miles) or embark on a cruise of the vast loch.

Keen fishermen can head out on Loch Ness by boat and fish for sea trout, brown trout or Atlantic salmon, or enjoy river fishing on the River Enrick (1 mile). Those who prefer to explore the area on foot, can embark on a trip up Meall Fuar-mhonaidh (11.5 miles) and admire remarkable views from its summit, some say the best views in the area. For horse riding and mountain biking, you can head towards the Moray Firth and find stables and biking tours 15 miles and 18 miles respectively.

 Enjoy a day out in the local city of Inverness, full of culture and history just 15.5 miles away. Visit the imposing riverside castle and the magnificent cathedral, before spending the evening taking in a show at the local arts centre. Being a city, you're sure to find an abundance of shops to browse and great restaurants and bars. If you prefer to leave the car at home and dine out locally, Drumnadrochit offers a lovely hotel with both bar and restaurant less than 300 metres down the road.
