We spent a week in Drumnadrochit, Scotland, in late June of 2021. You may use it as a starting point to explore Loch Ness, Inverness, and the surrounding environs. The Jacobite cruise is just 8 miles distant, and I would suggest it to anyone who is interested in history. Urquart Castle is about 2 minutes away by automobile, and you could walk there if you wanted to. Fort William is around 50 minutes distant. The castle of Eilean Donan is about a 60-minute drive away and is quite lovely.
A pleasant tiny green with picnic seats may be found in the heart of the village. There are some wonderful dishes served at the Ness Delhi, and the prices are fairly cheap. Also worth mentioning is Fiddlers, a local pub/restaurant that serves wonderful meals. There is a COOP in the area that is convenient. It is still light outside till 11 p.m. at night.
