Highlandfun Chalets Tour Things To Do Booking & Availability Contact Us
Well to start with before you even leave our grounds there are a few things to do.
We've already mentioned the barbecue, tree house and swing. Well whilst you're taking advantage of these you should keep an eye out for the wildlife. In the forest opposite us there are 2 eagles who frequently hang around looking for lunch (loads of rabbits around here). And this year we had a couple of kites nesting and by the end of summer there was a whole family of kites flying around. We counted 5 or 6 at one point.
Okay well this the Highlands so as you'll expect there is
absolutely loads of fun things to do up here.
However, instead of going through a long list of things all over Scotland on this page we'll concentrate on things fairly close to us. We have also provided a file in each Chalet with some of our favourite walks and drives.
Things To Do
Again also in the forest in the morning you may see some of the local deer coming down to drink. They are fascinating to watch.
Well once you are bored of the wildlife and you fancy venturing further afield you should take advantage of our on-site bike hire.We were originally going to hire our bikes out to everyone. Unfortunately running a bike hire business is quite tying. We'd much rather be out and about ourselves! So now we reserve the bikes exclusively for our guests.
As for exploring locally we are situated right next to an entire mountain range.
There are literally miles and miles of tracks to explore.
You can hike up to a wind farm, old monuments or tackle the some of the local mountains.
And once you explored the local sites you'll find we are perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the rest the Highlands has to offer. Head North up the A9 tourist trail and you got an amazing drive up to John O' Groats with some spectacular scenery on the way. Lots of beaches to explore and the world famous Dunrobin castle. Said to be where Walt Disney got his inspiration for the fairy tale castle.
In the other direction we are literally an hour away from Ullapool and ferries to the Islands. If you dont want to go too far you could take a wildlife cruise, go dolphin or whale spotting
To the south of us you've got the Black Isle to explore. Again a great place to go Dolphin spotting or visit the wildlife park or even do a spot of horse riding.
Then just 20 minutes south of us is the Highland capital, Inverness. Packed with loads of things to do Inverness is great during the day - a charming shopping centre with plenty of cheap parking. And for the kids there's a Warner Brothers multiplex cinema, an aquadome sports centre ice rink, and bowling. At night Inverness has some great pubs, restaurants and a couple of cool night clubs. Something for everyone.
If you look at any map you'll find that Inverness is at the head of the world famous Loch Ness. Home of the monster himself the trail down the Loch takes in some of the most spectacular scenery in the Highlands. Lots of things to do here with 2 Nessie exhibition centres, lots of charming tourist villages and Urquhart castle.
Heading further down Loch Ness takes you down towards
Fort William and a little further is Glencoe - both with some amazing walks and climbs
.Coming up in the winter? Well to us this is the best time of year. One of the reasons we moved here is that we are avid snowboarders!
Visit our Ski/Snowboard page to find out more.....
And again in the low season we are also perfectly placed for those of you wanting to take advantage of hunting or fishing sports. The very friendly people at the Novar estate opposite us offer excellent facilities for both .
We've heard rave reports from guests who have already been there.
So thats about it for now. If there is anything we've missed. Anything you fancy doing that we havent covered just email us and we'll look into it for you.
