Lots to See and Do
This is a land of magnificent mountains, lochs, forests, abundant wildlife and superb coastlines offering some of the best scenery and attractions which Scotland has to offer. These include Glen Affric, the silver sands of Morar and Arisaig, iconic Eilean Donan Castle and, of course, Loch Ness itself.
One place visitors shouldn't miss is the site of the Battle of Culloden (6 miles east of Inverness off the B9006) where the Jacobites, under Bonnie Prince Charlie, were slaughtered in 1746 by the English army, led by the Duke of Cumberland (son of George I). This battle marked the end of the Jacobite rebellion and the old clan system and was shortly followed by the Highland Clearances. The battle site with its marked clan graves has a haunted atmosphere and the Culloden visitor centre has an audio-visual presentation depicting the battle.
Further east is the 14th century Cawdor Castle, referred to in Shakespeare's Macbeth, which is still inhabited by the Campbells of Cawdor. The interior has interesting dungeons, secret passageways and fine tapestries whilst the grounds include a maze, walled garden and nature trails. East of Inverness on the B9039 (off the A96) is Fort George, built in 1769 for George II's army and still used as an army barracks. The interior has a regimental museum and chapel and the views from the ramparts across the Moray Firth and towards the great Glen are magnificent.
The Moray Firth becomes the Beauly Firth to the west of Inverness and the Kessock Bridge. The A862 leads to Beauly and the ruins of the 13th century Beauly Priory, destroyed during the Reformation.
The Beauly Centre includes an old shop and displays about weaving. Muir of Ord, 4 miles to the north, is famous for the Glen Ord Distillery and there is a winery at Moniack Castle, 4 miles east of Beauly.

|18-Nov-2019||South Persie House CN2 (overall)||Unique Cottages made the booking process seamless. I would highly endorse this self catering accommodation company and similarly, I would recommend this wonderful holiday house - exceedingly comfortable -great warmth, superb beds and bedding, well equipped kitchen -the latter definitely very much the hub of the house. The secure garden is not overlooked and provides a great expansive playground for the dogs. The swimming pool is a great boon for young and old alike. We would love to have a summer week here although anytime of the year has its own appeal. A particular thank you to Sharon the housekeeper who, with a touch of magic, keeps the place pristine clean. The welcome goodies were very much appreciated. An A plus experience from start to finish.|

|16-Nov-2019||Tayvulin AN8 (overall)||The house was exactly what we hoped for and met every one of our needs it was clean and warm with lots of space for us and our 3 children 15 11 and 8. We had lovely family nights toasting marshmallows and playing the wii and watched some of the DVDs on offer. We were delighted to be able to store the bikes safely in the garage. We ate at the table which could sit 8 and I had all i needed to cook simple meals. I used the washing machine and airer for drying clothes and the location was convenient and we walked down to the shops and cafes several times. Would love to stay again **|
