Loch Ness, Inverness, Black Isle and Affric


Loch Ness, with its legendary monster, is the most famous of all lochs. It holds more water than all the lakes of England and Wales combined and the countryside around it features an equally great variety of walks, with more waymarked trails and easy routes suitable for families than many other parts of the Highlands.

Further north lies the magnificent Glen Affric – Scotland’s most beautiful glen. This is a wonderful area of the Highlands for walkers, having the highest mountains north of the Great Glen but also some splendid lower-level and forest walks. To the east is the fertile Black Isle, packed with charming villages and some fine beaches, whilst further north still is Dingwall, a gateway to the spectacular Northern Highlands.

Loch Ness, Inverness, Black Isle and Affric

Thanks to Nessie, its legendary resident monster, Loch Ness is one of the best known places in Scotland. Situated on the Great Glen Fault, the immense depth of the loch – some 230m – means that it holds nearly twice as much fresh water as all the lakes of England and Wales combined. For lovers of the outdoors, the loch is merely the centrepiece of an area offering an amazing variety of walking. The 40 walks in this book include canalside towpaths, loch shore rambles, explorations of ancient forest and coastal cliffs, as well as the city streets of Inverness. North of Loch Ness are the great Caledonian pinewoods of Glen Affric, backed by magnificent mountains and reckoned by many to be the finest glen in the country.
