Чем вы займетесь

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.

Outlander fans will be delighted to know that some of the locations in the books are set near here and I can even teach you a wee bit of Gaelic to help you along with some of the dialogue.

We'll finish the walk by dropping back downhill and returning to the village through pine and hazel woodland where you can learn about the work we're doing to manage the woods sustainably and how we forage for natural materials to dye yarn and wool sold in the village.

I have worked in tourism for over ten years and I have extensive experience working with visitors to the area. I've been a keen hillwalker and natural historian since I was very young and there's not much I don't know about the area we'll be exploring on your AirBnb experience.

Где вы побываете

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.

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!

This was an amazing experience all around. Toby made me (and the dog) feel welcome, answered my 1 million questions and had such a deep knowledge of the plants and area, it was a perfect morning walk in the Highlands (while respecting covid restrictions -Toby takes one household at a time to make sure everyone is safe!) Highly recommend!
