Culloden and Loch Ness Questions

by serpentine

Hi,

I'll be travelling to Scotland this month and I'm going to spend a couple of days in Inverness. This is my first time there so I hace a couple of questions:

I'd like to go to Loch Ness and I thought it would be a good idea to go by bus from Inverness to Drumnadrochit. My question is: Once I get to Drumnadrochit, do I have to take another bus to Loch Ness or can I go walking?

And I also want to go to Culloden Battlefield, so is it possible to go there by bus from Inverness?

If someone could also give me any bus company names it will be appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your help!!!

Cheers,
N.

I'm not sure about Inverness, but First is probably the company doing round-town routes there.

Hope this is some help, Jem

A nice way to go to the Loch Ness from Inverness is by boat. I navigated on the river Ness and into the Loch Ness, to the ruins of Urquart Castle.
You can find useful info about trips in that area here: www.scotland-inverness.co.uk/inv-area.htm

Drumnadrochit is right on the shore of Loch Ness, so if you get a bus to the village, you won't have to walk far. The loch itself is enormous, so you don't have to go to Drumnadrochit specifically--that's just one small village on the edge of a very big body of water.

Drumnadrochit is right on the shore, so no need for another walk. It houses two Loch Ness centres, which are a bit pricey, though. You'll be travelling along the Loch on tha way there, which is really nice.
It is possible to go to Culloden by bus, but unfortunately I cannot remember the company's name :o(

Good luck anyway...

I'm willing to visit Scotland. I'll probably take a bus to Loch Ness, then. Although the cruises looks nice, too.

Thanks again for all your suggestions :)

Hi N

I live in Inverness so hope I can help.
Just beside the town house in the high street in Inverness you will see a open top tour bus, it goes round all the favourite city landmarks and goes to culloden battlefield, you can get on and off as many times as you want during the day at any of the stops and pick it up as it does the same run every half hour, plus you can listen to the driver give you the lowdown about everything.
Re the best way and friendliest reasonable way to get a tour of loch ness is again where you get the city tour bus you will see signs for a loch ness tour, its the small mini bus ones they are a good price and they stop along the way for photos and give info as you go along, plus a chance to see the Loch Ness monster. Do not go to the loch ness centres in drumnadrochit they are expensive and the same souveniers are cheaper in Inverness town centre, better to pick up some nibbles and sit at Urquart castle the tour takes you there and have a picnic and admire the view. shirley

Hi Shirley,

Thanks a lot for your advice. It seems a good idea to take a tour bus if you can get on and off any time you want. I will probably take one to go to Culloden and Cawdor Castle.

Thanks also for your advice on the Loch Ness Centres in Drumnadrochit, now I know is not worthwhile.
Just four days to leave to Scotland! :)

Take care,
Natalia.

Travel Tips for Inverness

The story of a smart Seagull - part 1

by daarth

At the Muirtown Locks we entered the first of 4 locks. As we tied up and waited for the water to rise, I noticed a rather large seagull sitting on the left edge near the next lock. “That’s interesting,” I thought, “He’s watching the water rise too….”. As the next gate opened and we started moving forward into the next basin, the bird flew up and settled at the same spot in front of the next lock.
After we tied up there, I asked the lock keeper if that seagull was employed by the British waterways. He laughed and said no, but there was an interesting story about that seagull. He explained that this particular seagull had learned that the water from the canal was rich with eels. And when the locks opened and the water came pouring into the basin, there would often be eels in the water. The seagull also made certain there was no competition by fighting off any other seagull that dared come near.Continued in part 2
(if you enlarge the picture, you will see the seagull on the right side, waiting for his catch)

Ness Islands Park

by travelmad478

If you walk south along the embankments of the River Ness, this park is about 15 minutes from downtown Inverness. It's an interesting space, created from several islands in the river that are connected by small footbridges. You can walk across the river on them and continue back to town on the other side. The day I visited, a Saturday, this park was full of weekend anglers trying their luck in the Ness. Luckily, this section of the river is upstream from the city!

the Fort Chapel

by shivan

---continues---
a key factor to enjoy your visit is to rent and use the electronic guide. Using the annexed earphones you may hear a recorded voice that guides you through the whole structure, telling stories about the major events happened there and much more.
I used it there for the first time, but from that time on, I never missed renting these devices, to make long visits, that may easily become boring, much more interesting.

Hope Ewe Love Sheep

"It's Baaaabulous"

Inverness is known as the gateway to the Highlands. It is a convenient place to start any tour of Northern Scotland and is the perfect city from which to base shorter jaunts in and around the area.

Some will visit Inverness only as a stopover on the way to seeking Loch Ness. Make sure to plan it the other way round. Your priority should be to stay in Inverness and not spend much time trying to get to Loch Ness. Inverness is actually located right on the River Ness, so that should be enough for all you "monster" seekers.

"I'm Tired and Need to Sheep"

It won't take you long to realise that Inverness is surronded by incredible natural scenery, and you will sound find yourself walking along the River Ness and beyond. Eventually, you will venture as far as the Isle of Skye on a day-trip, where your mind will be blown away with some of the most serene sights in the world.

The Inverness Tourist Office is a must. As is Blackfriars. Try a haunted walk at night.
