Walks in Abriachan Forest: On the northern shore of Loch Ness, Abriachan Forest is home to a network of trails that range in length and difficulty.

The trails offer an excellent opportunity to see local wildlife and are clearly marked.
When hiking, keep in mind to check the weather, pack proper gear, and adhere to safety precautions. Additionally, whenever you decide to go trekking, let someone know. Also, always take the required safety precautions.
