Loch Ness in the Highlands of Scotland is a land of mountains, glens and beautiful lakes, one of Europe's last wilderness areas. It is a place where nature still thrives, where eagles and wildcats still roam freely. It has a rich and vibrant culture and a heritage still very much in evidence to this day. The Highlands is a beautiful place most welcoming to visitors who drive, ride or fly into Inverness, the Highland capital. People come from all parts the world to visit ancient castles, visit whisky distilleries, taste the fabulous cuisine and learn about the turbulent history of the Scottish clans in places like the Culloden battlefield Centre. Most of all though, people visit the Highlands for the dramatic scenery and to experience the natural beauty that is unrivalled anywhere in Europe and which is unique to Scotland. Of course you may want to indulge in a little of what we are famous for at Loch Ness, Nessie spotting. Our apartment is situated in a location where The Loch Ness monster has been seen!
