Explore Loch Ness
The Great Glen Canoe Trail and Great Glen Way are two long-distance trails that many people tackle every year, with facilities available for walkers, bikers and paddlers along the way. You can walk or bike the Great Glen Way or jump in canoe or kayak and paddle the Great Glen Canoe Trail over 4 or 5 days (or less if you’re up for a challenge).
For other visitors to the Loch Ness area, there are lots of other options. During the busy summer season we offer scheduled guided canoe trips on Loch Ness from picturesque Fort Augustus at the southern end. Also available are archery and Walk on Water (WoW) balling at The Highland Club, formerly St. Benedict’s Abbey and now a wonderful place to stay for your holidays.
Fort Augustus is worth a visit in its own right, with Scottish Canal’s Caledonian Canal Visitor Centre worth stopping off at for a look, and you must take a few minutes to take a photo or two of the Caledonian canal locks as they pass through the centre of the village.
We offer guided canoe or kayak trips for groups wishing to explore Loch Ness, whether just for a quick taste of what it has to offer, or a longer journey including wild camping.
We can also organise guided hill walks, gorge scrambling, mountain biking, climbing, abseiling and weaseling within touching distance of Loch Ness.Tailor made activities
