Leaving Inverness down the old "Wade" road and along the quieter side of Loch Ness, take in the spectacular views before you explore the magnificent Caledonian pine woods of Foyers. Pass one of the highest waterfalls in Scotland and learn about our national bard, Rabbie Burns' visit to these falls, before continuing down to the shores of Loch Ness itself.
The track you'll take is only really used by locals, so when the loch opens before you you will more than likely be the only one there to enjoy the atmosphere and views. You'll stay for a while, taking in the calmness of this special place before heading back where some local baking will be waiting for you in the Waterfall Cafe.
From there it's back up the loch via some more back roads, taking in the typical Highland scenery and wildlife before descending back down to the north end of the Loch at Dores Beach. Take another short walk along the pebble beach to reward yourself with a magnificent perspective of the great glen fault that Loch Ness is a part of.
From here we will make the sort journey across Inverness, passing Culloden Battlefield. Before returning to Inverness, we will visit the 4,000-year-old burial chambers of Clava, where you can soak in the history and atmosphere of these ancient monuments, and of course see for yourself why these ancient monuments inspired Diana Gabaldon's Craig Na Dun in Outlander!
