Invermoriston

Do & See

4Invermoriston “A real gem in the heart of the Glen”
This beautiful village on the west shore of Loch Ness is a popular tourist resort as a good location for touring the Highlands of Scotland and walking the Great Glen Way. Places of interest in the village include St Columba’s Well, Telfords Bridge and the Falls of Invermoriston.

St Columba is said to have defied the local druids by drinking from the well upon which they had placed a curse. The Glenmoriston Heritage group have built a viewing platform for this site. The village expanded from 1813 with a new road system opening up, making access easier with the construction of one of Thomas Telford’s famous bridges, which was built over the River Moriston to help improve Highland communications. The bridge was started in 1805 and was completed 1813.

The River Moriston descends rapidly from a point just above Telford's bridge, but the Falls are best viewed from the old Summer House slightly downriver from the modern road bridge. Invermoriston is just 6 miles north along the A82 from Fort Augustus and 26 miles from The Capital of the Highlands Inverness and 36 miles to Fort William. If you take the A887 from the village you can travel through the beautiful Glenmoriston and onwards to the Skye Bridge [which is only one hour by car] onto the famous Isle of Skye. The centrally located Glenmoriston Millennium Hall, next to the main car park, offers a variety of activities and attractions throughout the year and houses the local toilets with the public telephone and bus stop close by.

Great Glen way
2The Great Glen Way is Scotland's fourth National Long Distance Walking Route. It runs from Fort William at the northern end of the West Highland Way to the City of Inverness along the Great Glen Fault. The route is 73 miles (118 Km) in length following closely the line of the Caledonian Canal.

The walk starts from the side of Loch Linnhe It follows the line of the Caledonian canal for almost all the way, this canal opening out into Loch Lochy, then Loch Oich prior to the much longer Loch Ness. The route will take you through some of the most stunning scery of the highalnds. The way then departs to the west of LochNess shortly after Drumnadrochit and takes a moor and farmland route before finally crossing the Caledonian Canal and the River Ness as the walk enters the City of Inverness.

Where as walkers coming from South Laggan/Invergarry will arrive in Invermoriston from 4p.m. onwards, as will those walking south from Drumnadrochit and will arrive just in time for afternoon tea at Bracarina House.

If you would like to take a day off from walking, stay two nights at Bracarina House and take the bus from Invermoriston and head west passing through beautiful Glen Sheil to Eilean Donan Castle, Kyle of Lochalsh and the Isle of Skye.
