What to see and Do - Press Blue Headings to Link to their Sites

 

There is a nearby forestry walk known as the Monadh Mor which is renown for its wild birds including the red kite, buzzards and falcons as well as the smaller red spotted woodpecker plus the more traditional robin, starlings, blue tits and chaffinches along with roe deer. It is renown for the many small pine and birch trees which grow slowly in its boggy wetland. The Moor is handy to walk your dog. There is also a picnic area.

In Dingwall itself, you can browse through the independent traders' shops or replenish your hunger in the many coffee shops, bars and restaurants.  Visit the Dingwall Museum. You can go it alone or have a guided tour through the two floors of magnificent pictures and artefacts showing the history of the town and its people.

Use the house as an anchor point to start your site seeing and view the beautiful Falls of Shin in Sutherland or take one of the many trails round the Rogie Falls where you can spot the red squirrel or the elusive pine martens. 

An easy walk to the Corrieshalloch Gorge with its breathtaking mile-long gorge & is one of the finest examples in Britain of a box canyon, its 61 m (200 ft) deep. The river plunges 46 m (150 ft) over the Falls of Measach.

At Drumnadrochit see the ruins of Urquhart Castle then onwards to the Original Loch Ness Monster Visitors' Centre or take a trip on the loch or take a trip on the Loch to see the beautiful scenery. On your way back to Inverness, remember to take the Foyer's road where you can stop for a breathtaking view of the Loch + visit the Falls of Foyer then a cup of tea/coffee in the nearby cafe.

On the road to Ullapool, board one of the "Summer Queen" cruises or take an exhilarating powerboat trip with "Seascape Expeditions" and spot the infamous bottlenosed dolphins and different varieties of seals.

Loch Broom, which is a sea loch, is situated near Ullapool in the Highlands of Scotland  and has spectacular views and in the summer months is a haven for yachts from all over the UK

 

Approx. 30 miles south of Inverness is the Highland Wildlife Park where you can drive round passing many varied species of wildlife including Deer, Bison, Tigers, Lions, Wildcats, Meercats, many different birds and Polar Bears including the Polar Bear cub.  There is also a play area for children and a coffee shop.

The Culloden Battlefield with its ruins and history is 12 miles from the house.
A Visitors Centre shows films of the Battle.

 
 

We are just approximately 40 miles from Aviemore where you can ski down the beautiful Cairngorm Mountains which are predominantly vast, rounded, dome-like structures; crags and cliffs are few and the gradients are relatively gentle. The vegetation in the hills largely comprises wiry grasses and mosses. Heather is more common in the surrounding foothills, which are often glacial moraines.

   

 

 

Take the trails up Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain, which begins its rise from sea-level on the shores of Loch Linnhe, to tower 4,406ft (1,344m) above the town of Fort William, providing an almost paternal presence.
 

Take a shorter drive east through Rosemarkie and walk along the beach at Chanonry Lighthouse at low tide and watch the dolphins swim up the Moray Firth to feed and play.
You can even travel as far West to visit the Gairloch Marine Life Centre & Cruises and join them on a boat cruise to monitor Porpoises, Whales, both Grey & Common Seals as well as many varieties of Dolphins.
   

Ben Wyvis is a mountain located in Easter Ross, Ross and Cromarty, Highland, in eastern Scotland, north-west of Dingwall. It forms an undulating ridgcroft e running roughly north-south for about 5 km, the highest summit of which is Glas Leathad Mòr at 1046 m (3432 ft) high. This can be viewed from the driveway at Newton Croft B & B.
