Highland Lodges Landscape

Loch Lochy is part of the Great Glen which runs from Fort William to Inverness between the west and east coast of the Scottish Highlands. The main attraction of the Great Glen is its system of fresh water lochs: Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy.

For the keen angler fishing is free on Loch Lochy with the land owners permission and with a private and secluded pebbled beach you know you can enjoy your day peacefully. The Loch offers a abundance of native fish including: Salmon, Brown Trout, Artic Charr, Eels, Stone Loach, Minnow, Lamprey, Pike and the non native Rainbow Trout.


Nevis Range
Just before Fort William on the A82 offering bike hire for either downhill enthusiasts as this forms part of the UCC downhill world cup event or a leisurely bike ride at the bottom.
There is a cable car up the side of Aonoch Mor which offers skiing in the winter, takes mountain bikes up to the start of the Witches Trail and gives panoramic views of the area. There is also a café/bar at the top with a viewing platform and signposted walks.
A high wire experience amongst the trees is available nearby.


The Road to the Isles
Running from Fort William to Mallaig alongside the steam railway (see below) you will see some of the most spectacular scenery in the world - from sandy beaches to dramatic hills - green woodlands, heather moors, unforgettable sea views with magnificent sunsets over the Isles of Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna, Skye and the remote wilderness of Knoydart.
You can also take a ferry from Mallaig to Skye.

Jacobite Steam Railway
Fort William To Mallaig return however booking is essential
Described as the greatest railway journey in the world, this 84 mile round trip takes you past a list of impressive extremes. Starting near the highest mountain in Britain Ben Nevis it visits Britain’s most westerly mainland railway station Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain the River Morar finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis.


John 0’ Groats
Visit the most northerly point on mainland Britain Dunnet Head being some 2.35 miles north of John O'Groats. Only 6.75 miles across the Pentland Firth lies the nearest point of the Orkney Islands.
Travel from Inverness on the A9 to Latheron in Caithness, then follow the A99 to Wick, travel through Wick and at Reiss turn right to John O’Groats, still on the A99, straight on to the ‘End of the road’.
Although not far as the crow flies it takes a good 3-4 hrs depending on traffic to get there.

The island of Skye is 50 miles long and the largest of the Inner Hebrides. The capital is Portree.
You can reach Skye by either the ferry from Maillaig at the end of the “road to the isles” or alternatively turn left as you enter Invergarry and Skye is signposted.  It takes around 90 mins to get there and you will pass the famous 13th century Eilean Donan castle (www.eileandonancastle.com) and drive over the Skye bridge.
