As we ease out of lockdown it’s time to get reacquainted with the great outdoors. For some, lockdown was been a period of intense hardwork. For others it’s left them feeling a bit purposeless. You may have learned a new language or baked banana bread or cleaned out every cupboard in your home. Or you may have spent too much time taking trips to the fridge and wondering what day it is. Whatever your experience for most it has been very stressful, so now is the time to book a break from it all. Isolation in the Scottish Highlands will be a tonic for your physical and mental well-being.
There’s no need to travel overseas when you can discover this wonderful scenery on our doorstep. There’s something here for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a physical challenge or to restore a bit of calm. You can spend a great deal of time outside without meeting a soul. A trip to Scotland’s beatiful trails and landscapes is ideal for a post lockdown escape.
Inverness is a great base with a huge choice of accommodation, bars, restaurants and shops. All businesses have adapted to ensure safety for staff and customers during the pandemic. The River Ness runs though the city – many bars and restaurants along the riverside have added outside seating so you can enjoy a refreshing drink next to the banks of the Ness. The Ness Islands, the Caledonian Canal and many parks are within walking distance for a tranquil stroll.
Loch Ness 360
As a small city, it doesn’t take long to get out into the countryside. Loch Ness is just a few miles away with the option to travel by boat, car, cycle or walk. The Loch Ness 360 route is included in Sustrans nationwide campaign to get people travelling by bike. The trail combines the Great Glen Way and the South Loch Ness Trail and is 80 miles. More ideas and information on getting out and about in and around Inverness is available from Visit Inverness Loch Ness
You don’t have to go far to find all sorts of terrain for a great day outdoors. There’s golf courses, beaches, castle grounds with beautiful gardens, rugged coastlines and mountain trails. Take a picnic, take your binoculars, watch the wildlife and listen to the birdsong in splendid isolation in the Scottish highlands.
