Nearby Attractions

Little Garve-Silverbridge circuit
(1 mile away)

For an easy and very local walk just follow the sign post to Little Garve Bridge at the end of our drive. From Little Grave Bridge follow the sign post to Silverbridge. It’s a beautiful walk of more or less 4 miles along the Black Water. There is also a great adventure playpark for children. From here you can do a one-hour circuit taking the riverside track up to Silverbridge (about one mile upriver), crossing the bridge and returning along the other side of the river. In summer, it’s a great spot for wild swimming.

Little Wyvis (2 miles away)

Little Wyvis is very much in the shadow of its bigger neighbour. The ascent from Silverbridge follows landrover tracks for the ascent, making it one of the easier of the Corbetts; views are extensive.

Start from Silverbridge car park, cross the bridge, then the road. Turn left at Silverbridge Lodge. Follow the signs.


Rogie Falls (5 miles away)

Rogie Falls has a series of lovely walks on the Black Water which you can follow to see the waterfall that is famous for salmon viewing. Drive back down the A835 towards Contin and Inverness. You’ll see a car park on the left and from there it’s a short walk to Rogie Falls. On the far side of the small suspension bridge across the river, there are forestry tracks that lead north and south. (Note: this is a popular destination. It can get quite busy but very few people cross the river to the forestry tracks on the far side).

If you turn right at the end of our drive, you will find a walking/cycling track which will take you to Loch Garve and to the local villages of Contin (5 miles) and  Rogie Falls and eventually to Strathpeffer (12 miles).


Ben Wyvis (5 miles away)


Although a popular and relatively easy climb, Ben Wyvis should be treated with respect. The 6.5 kilometre route starts from the car park. The path goes through forestry, and then it heads up to An Cabar and along the summit ridge. The average time to the summit and back is 6 hours.

Strathpeffer (9 miles away)

Strathpeffer is a leafy Victorian spa town surrounded by wooded hills. Situated within striking distance of the bleak Ben Wyvis, the town is a popular base for walkers. There are superb views from the Iron Age hill fort of Knock Farril, of the Cromarty Firth and of the surrounding mountains. Another good walk is through Ord Wood to picturesque Loch Kinellan, where a small island bears the ruin of a fort. During its heyday, Strathpeffer was a renowned European health resort. A recent facelift is redeveloping the grand pavilion as a performing arts centre and has recently restored the Pump Room where visitors drank water from wells to treat all manner of ailments. Visitors can still do this either here or at the small pavilion in the main square.The Highland Museum of Childhood, located at the restored Victorian train station, looks at growing up in the Highlands and is a great way to explore the local history and traditions.
