A few of our favourite things
We don’t want to boast too much but we are the absolute experts in everything Loch Ness – our sister business, Loch Ness by Jacobite, has been cruising Loch Ness for over 40 years! So, with this expert knowledge in mind, we wanted to pass on a few recommendations for things to do whilst during your stay at one of our cottages.
Take a cruise with Loch Ness by Jacobite ….. as we already mentioned Loch Ness by Jacobite is our sister business, but we promise even if we were not ‘related’ we would be recommending Jacobite to all our guests!5 star Loch Ness by Jacobite departs Dochgarroch Lock – just minutes from the door of both our properties. Seeing Loch Ness from the water is truly the best way to experience legendary Loch Ness – there are several sailings a day. Insider tip – book the first or last sailing of the day …. they are normally a bit quieter.
Visiting with teenagers or are you a bit more of a thrill-seeker?! The Beastie Boat is for you. Super-charged and super-fun, the high-speed rib boat will take you as close as you can get to capture everything that makes Loch Ness so famously magnificent.
Do what the locals do – so many of our Invernessian friends say their favourite dog-walk/walk/run/cycle is along the Caledonian Canal from Inverness. So make like a local and take the tow-path along from Dochgarroch to Inverness …. there are so many great cafes and restaurants in Inverness where you can ‘refuel’ (that will have to be the topic of another blog!) before your return back to your cottage.
Our friendly team loves to give recommendations of places to go and things to do whilst you stay at the Loch Ness Cottage Collection – so if you need any help or have any questions about what to do during your stay please do not hesitate to ask.
