In the Heart of the Great Glen close to Loch Ness

Stacks Image 61
Loch Ness runs 23 miles through the Great Glen, forming part of the world famous Caledonian Canal that links Fort William in the south to Inverness in the north. Loch Ness is the largest volume of fresh water in Europe, plunging to depths of nearly 600 feet. The RNLI has one of the few inland water lifeboat stations at Drumnadrochit. Here at Invermoriston we are at the mouth of Glenmoriston, where it runs into Loch Ness, between Fort Augustus and Drumnadrochit. Unfortunately, shore access to Loch Ness is limited, but one of the walks we include in our Walks from the Door leaflet takes you down to the Loch in less than 15 minutes to the mouth of the River Moriston. Of course, if you walk to the Stone Seat (another walk from the door) you will get superb views of the Loch, changing with the seasons but never failing to impress.

Invermoriston lies in the heart of the Great Glen in the Highlands of Scotland, on the shores of Loch Ness 25 miles south of Inverness and 40 miles north of Fort William, where the river Moriston rushes over the falls of Invermoriston to the Loch. With about 70 houses, a population under 200 and 9 B&Bs we have few facilities in the village, other than the shop and hotel. The Clog and Craft shop is worth a visit where you can buy leather goods made by the owner craftsman.
One exception is our splendid Millennium Hall, a new Community Hall built in 1999 and which is a very active hub for local activities.
Within easy reach of Invermoriston there are opportunities for access to most kinds of outdoor activity, including walking, climbing, water sports, fishing, cycling and skiing in season.
The Great Glen Way long distance walk and the Great Glen Cycle Route pass through Invermoriston on their way from Fort William to Inverness. Plus many more formal tourist attractions such as the official Loch Ness Monster Exhibition at Drumnadrochit and Urquhart Castle are both within a 20 minute drive or can be reached daily by public transport.. The west coast and the Isle of Skye, with its unique atmosphere, are not far away through some of the best scenery you will ever experience.
Or travel the famous "Road to the Isles" from Fort William through Glenfinann to Mallaig by road or steam train.
Comprehensive area information is published by VisitScotland and Destination Loch Ness. The nearest Tourist Information Centre is at Fort Augustus, 6 miles away.
You will also find an information pack in your Studio that will help you to understand what is available and how to access it.
