I consider its border from the bay at Fort William, through Loch Lochy, Loch Ness to the north of Scotland. Among the most popular visitor attractions are the Glenfinnan Railway Viaduct, Eilean Donan Castle, Loch Ness with its Nessie monster, Urquhart Castle, the center of the Scottish Highlands, and the lesser-known area, but considered by many to be the Glen Affric Valley. . If you are following our path, we will take it nicely gradually.

Glenfinnan Viaduct

It belongs to the southern part of the Scottish Highlands. The bridge can be seen on a 10 pound Scottish banknote, but among other things, it is especially famous in the film industry. Most in Harry Potter.

Eilean Donan

It is the third most visited castle in Scotland. There is probably no better known small castle like this. Even at the beginning of the 20th century, the castle was just a ruin. The owners have improved it and their work is beautiful. The castle is heated by fireplaces and there is a guide on hand on each floor.

Urquhart Castle overlooking Loch Ness

Urquhart Castle is one of these famous places. He is also nicknamed, as the Bloody Castle, due to his past. And also thanks to Loch Ness, where visitors head for the Nessie monster.

Visit to Glen Affric

It is necessary to drive another 15 km on the road for one car, so such a journey can take up to 40 minutes.

Road to Dog Falls

Here is the river River Affric, which strongly resembles our Otter in Šumava, or Stvořidla in Sázava.

Glen Affric

This is the place that is considered the most beautiful in the Scottish Highlands. It needs no further comment. Another beauty of Glen Affric is that there are several times fewer people than on Skye, Eilean Donan or Loch Ness.
