Out in nature

Here in Inverness, we are so lucky to be surrounded by Scotland’s spectacular natural beauty. You don’t have to venture far to reach the majestic mountains, shady glens, glittering lochs and abundant wildlife of the Scottish Highlands. There are plenty of local walks with varying degrees of difficulty, which will get you out in the fresh air. Meander along the banks of the River Ness and along the Caledonian Canal. Gaze into the Moray Firth and look out for dolphins. Enjoy stunning views of Loch Ness on the Great Glen Way or South Loch Ness Trail. If you’ve got a few days and enjoy a challenge, you may even decide to complete the Loch Ness 360° – a long-distance circuit route around the whole of Loch Ness. Keen photographers and Scottish wildlife lovers may also enjoy camera stalking. Out in the Highlands, learn how to quietly stalk your animal subject, so you can take the perfect picture.

On your wellness holiday at the Kingsmills Hotel, don’t miss out on the incredible stargazing opportunities in the Scottish Highlands. Between October and March, you can join astronomer Stephen Mackintosh for a special experience right from our hotel. Away from city lights, you’ll get to see the stars like never before, in small groups of up to 13 guests. It’s a chance to relax and see the beauty of the night sky.

While sightings aren’t guaranteed, the end of winter brings better conditions for catching a glimpse of this natural phenomenon.
