The area around Strathglass Cottage is renowned for its stunning scenery and is a haven for walkers and cyclists. The cottage is ideally placed for hill walking with 13 Munros close by including Carn Eighe (1181m) and Mam Sadhail (1183m). The upstairs windows look out onto the River Glass which runs close by. The Glass joins with the River Farrar and flows into the River Beauly which boasts some great fishing for both salmon and brown trout. Wildlife is abundant with badgers, deer and a variety of birdlife spotted nearby. Such is the range of species that the BBC's Winterwatch, Springwatch and Autumnwatch wildlife programmes have all been broadcast live from a few miles up the road.
Right on the doorstep of Strathglass Cottage is the beautiful Glen Affric Nature Reserve and Glen Strathfarrar, arguably some of the most stunning landscapes Scotland has to offer. The world famous Loch Ness is a short drive away. There is an excellent visitor centre, Urquhart Castle, opportunites for a boat trip and the chance to spot the Loch Ness Monster! The area boasts plenty of golfing opportunities with the Aigas Golf Course only a short drive as well as the courses at Muir of Ord and Castle Stuart Links. Locally, Beauly offers good amenities as well as the historic priory.
Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, is just a short drive away. The city is famous for both its castle and museum. Both Culloden Battlefield and Fort George are close to Inverness and well worth a visit. Day trips to the Orkney Islands run regularly from Inverness - a great way to see some of these amazing islands. If you want to sample a dram of whisky then there are several famous local distilleries to choose from including Glen Ord, Dalmore, Tomatin and Glenmorangie ... which will be your favourite?!
