Here in the heart of the Highlands you will find the three great Glens of Affric, Cannich and Strathfarrar, along with Lochs, Mountains, a National Nature Reserve, rare birds, deer, and stunning walks of every variety. All this in addition to activities such as trout & salmon fishing, horse riding, golf and bike hire within, or near to, the largest forest of ancient Caledonian Pine left in Scotland. The population is sparse with only three small villages: Cannich, Tomich and Struy being the main settlements.
On the way to Cougie from Tomich, take in the dramatic view of the gorge and waterfall at Plodda surrounded by some of the tallest Douglas Firs in Scotland, many measuring over 65 metres. Our glens abound with majestic red deer while the forests give shelter to the smaller sika and roe deer. The best times to spot deer are spring and late autumn.
Stay a while and explore our land of the Loch Ness Monster and Bonnie Prince Charlie, who after Culloden, hid in the woods at Fasnakyle and also in Glen Cannich. See Culloden Moor, near Inverness, the site of the last great battle fought in the British Isles, before tasting the amber nectar in our local whisky distillery in Muir of Ord.
Linger a little longer and take in a day trip or two to visit the sub-tropical gardens at Inverewe, Eilean Donan Castle, the spectacular Applecross Pass and the dramatic Torridon mountains. For the lover of the countryside, looking for a quiet relaxing break surrounded by all that is good in nature and Scotland, there can be no better experience than that to be found in Strathglass.
