A myriad of paths meander through natural woodland, with little 'secret' lochs to be discovered.  Just a stone's throw away is the dramatic Falls of Foyers, recently used as the setting for the film Centurian.  Beautiful forest walks leads through to the small villages of Upper and Lower Foyers, with a café and shop and directly down to the shores of Loch Ness.

The area is renowned for its red squirrel population, which are regularly encountered in the area.   Deer, pine marten and a wide variety of birds can also be seen close by.  This is a fantastic area for the outdoor enthusiast.  Kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing, golf, cycling, walking and horse-riding are all enjoyed locally. The nearby historic village of Fort Augustus is truly charming. Its focal point is a picturesque series of lock gates which give access to boats from the Caledonian Canal to and from Loch Ness.  The wide tow paths and pretty lawned areas along the side of the canal provide an ideal vantage point from which to sit and watch the numerous small crafts navigating the locks.  There is a variety of good cafes and restaurants here, as well as an interesting and unusual selection of small shops.  Fort Augustus is situated half way along the Great Glen Way, which runs from Fort William to Inverness along the side of the canal and provides superb cycling and scenic walking along its 73 mile path.  Mountain biking is very popular in the area and the recently opened Laggan Wolf Tracks provide some wonderful and stretching downhill runs for all. The new Loch Ness trail opened in 2011 also offers wonderful walking and cycling.

The Scottish Highlands region

Welcome to Scotland's Highlands and Islands, a magical land of immense natural beauty, where the scenery will take your breath away, the flora and fauna captivate, and the attractions and activities excite and appeal.

From the mesmerising glow of an eastern shore sunset to the raw beauty of a west coast mountain range, and in all the vastness around and between, can be found wonderful, exhilarating adventures or peaceful, energy-restoring experiences - whichever your wish, or need.

And whether wandering across miles of deserted, silver sandy dunes in the shimmering sun on an island seashore, being thrilled by an outdoor enthusiasts’ paradise in one of our rugged mountain ranges, standing thigh-deep in waters of the greatest salmon rivers in the world, following whisky, castle, coastal or Pictish trails, exploring the folk tales, history, drama and romance of this ancient land or simply sitting by a peat fire with a dram in your hand, you could not have chosen a better region to appreciate than this one.Thanks to an ever-expanding air service and a comprehensive rail and ferry network, the area can be travelled in comfort, and drivers will often find that they have many of the roads away from the busier centres to themselves - apart from the odd sheep.

Few places in the world offer such a wealth and diversity of natural beauty, activities and attractions, but this is one of them.

Foyers

South Loch Ness

If you fancy getting away from the crowds and escaping to wild, natural landscapes, then head for South Loch Ness.

Easily accessed from both Fort Augustus and Inverness, South Loch Ness is an area of outstanding natural beauty with heather covered hills, sparkling lochs, deep dark forests and panoramic views that will take your breath away. With such a beautiful and wild landscape it is little wonder that many people come to the area to walk and see the rich diversity of wildlife and flora. Many of the walks are way marked, particularly those in the Inverfarigaig, Foyers and Whitebridge areas, providing excellent safe routes for visitors to experience the area and enjoy wonderful views over Loch Ness. The famous Falls of Foyers can be enjoyed by all ages.

Alternatively, why not try the Trail of the Seven Lochs, a 50 mile loop taking in much of the area’s outstanding scenery. This trail is best enjoyed on horseback or for those looking for more challenging walking. With so many quiet roads, the area is also ideal for cycling.

The area is rich in wildlife – The RSPB site at Loch Ruthven is a must for keen bird watchers but across the area, look out for ospreys, golden eagles, red kites and black grouse. The area has a good population of roe deer, red deer and sika deer but you might also see badgers and pine martin and, especially in autumn, red squirrels.

In or around the small villages of Farr, Croachy, Dores, Inverfarigaig, Foyers, Gorthleck and Whitebridge you will find local artist’s studios and craft shops as well as a number of welcoming places to eat and drink.

Walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding or just searching for peace and tranquillity in a wonderful environment, South Loch Ness has it all.

“Very cosy, comfortable relaxing and wonderful place to stay”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2012

We have just returned from a fantastic week in the Wee Residence, it is wonderful!! We had everything we needed, a lovely open fire to relax in front of at the end of the day. The area is really very beautiful and so quiet even in August! Stunning views just a short distance away, fantastic walks of varying lengths and even a brilliant little shop and cafe in walking distance. This was an extra holiday due to my being unwell for a few months and exceeded all our expectations and was just brilliant. Thank you so much to Enrica for her kindness and sorting out a very minor problem almost instantly. Our little dog also loved the house and the garden was big enough for her to play in before we went out each day. Really lovely.

You just made my day! thank you for your appreciation and have an amazing xmas and an even better 2013! Enrica

“Wee Loved It!”

Reviewed 5 Feb 2012

We had a lovely stay at The Wee Res. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, and the cottage is very cosy. Highly recommended for anyone that wants to visit Loch Ness, where there is plenty to do and see.

Truly glad you had a good time. It makes it all worthwhile for me. Thank you so much. Best things and hope to see you again! Enrica
