Wild Swimming

Plunge into the bracing waters of Loch Ness, or for a slightly warmer dip, head to Loch Oich. For a dramatic waterfall swim, try the nearby Lady Falls, a top spot for a refreshing leap into the still water below.


Enjoy walking the Great Glen Way or the nearby forestry river walks that are teeming with wildlife. Pick up our walking map at reception and we’ll point you in the right direction.
