Welcome to the Strathglass & Glen Affric Website!
Strathglass, situated in the north west Highlands has long been recognised as one of the most scenic areas of Scotland. On our doorstep is Glen Affric, a National Nature Reserve often claimed to be the most beautiful of all the Scottish glens. We also boast Glen Cannich and Glen Strathfarrar, areas of breathtaking beauty that provide access to some of the wilder and more remote areas of Scotland. From Strathglass the road leads through Glen Urquhart to Loch Ness and beyond to the City of Inverness, capital of the Highlands.
Those of us lucky to live here welcome thousands of visitors from across the globe every year to share the natural delights of our surroundings. Wildlife abounds within the remnants of the ancient Caledonian Pine Forest.....red deer, golden eagle, badger, pine marten, otter and many more. Whether you wish to climb Munros, ramble or cycle on miles of forest track, fish for salmon and trout on river and loch, or simply relax and take in the magical surroundings - we have it all here!
The glens around Strathglass offer some of the most spectacular walking in Scotland. The area is also an ideal location for the cyclist - quiet roads that take you deep into the glens, and numerous forest tracks and off road routes to satisfy the mountain bike enthusiast.
The lochs and rivers around the Strathglass area are widely recognised for their superb trout and salmon fishing. Landscapes, changing with the seasons, and the diverse wildlife are a great attraction for photographers.
The Strathglass area is rich in heritage and culture and has been an inspiration to artists, musicians and writers for centuries. Although a small community there is a great deal of talent in the Strath and surrounding glens and we are pleased to share this with you.
With a wide range of local accommodation available to the visitor, the Glen Affric area is an ideal base for touring the Highlands. The website now has business listings covering the wider Strathglass, Glenurquhart, Beauly and Loch Ness areas including information on where to stay: - Hotels, Bed & Breakfast, Caravan & Camping, Self-Catering and Hostels.
