Apa yang akan anda lakukan

Hidden secret gardens, 'baby' Giant Sequioa, Rogues, Vikings and possibly even a monster are the things you'll hear about and see during our walk around the Craigmonie Woodland and Balmacaan Estate. Meeting at my house we'll head towards the old estate and wind our way through a mix of oak and native Scots pine woodland on the path up to the viewpoint. Along the way you'll hear the history of the area from visits by Robert the Bruce, the legend of a Norse Prince who lent his name to a couple of landmarks and a Bard that got into a spot of bother with the local clan chief. The viewpoint itself will give spectacular views over Drumnadrochit and Loch Ness where you can pause and soak up the scenery. We'll stop here for a while to have a dram of malt whisky and toast the scenery before meandering back home under the crag and through Hazel woods.
Other things to note:
The path is mostly good quality singletrack and forest path and there is a fair amount of ascent involved so a reasonable amount of fitness is required.

I'm passionate about slow and sustainable tourism and I want visitors to really slow down and enjoy the area they're visiting. I've worked in tourism for nearly 15 years and have been a keen hill-climber and nature-watched since I was very young. I can give you insights into the environment that you might not get elsewhere and I'm also a Gaelic speaker and can help you pronounce the place-names and features you see around you in the Highlands.

Di mana anda akan berada

We'll spend most of the time walking through ancient woodland situated above Drumnadrochit. There's the option to explore the jumble of rocks beneath the viewpoint and discover an old 'secret' garden hidden in the grounds of the old estate.

Craigmonie Viewpoint is the highpoint of our walk affording great views over Urquhart bay, Loch Ness and Drumnadrochit. We'll stop here to soak up the views and enjoy a generous dram of malt whisky.

If you have any mobility problems at all this may not be for you. Whilst the information imparted was interesting there was less than we expected.

A great experience for anyone wishing to know about the area. Toby is fantastically well informed and had a cornucopia of facts and trivia; able to answer every question we had. Wonderful view at the end to top it off.

So informative and cool person to talk to. I got to learn so much about the area of Loch Ness and about the Grant Clan (who are my ancestors). Toby paced the walk according to my own needs

A very beautiful hike up and down woodland with a very informative local. Toby was very knowledgeable and very good company for the walk around.

A lovely afternoon with Toby, thank you! Great to be shown around by a local and the hot chocolate was a hit with the kids! Great views over the Loch, would recommend.

Arrived not sure what to expect having never done a walking tour before, was greeted by Toby (who is a great host), and set off on our walk, Toby is really knowledgeable of the area and we really enjoyed hearing about the local history and battles between clans. Also really appreciated the dram of whiskey at the highest point. Thanks so much!
