Specialist self-guided cycling and walking operator Headwater has launched a new programme for Loch Ness and Scottish Highlands tours beginning this summer 2015.
The 4 and 5 night tours with extra nights on request) explore the remote “undiscovered” southern tip of Loch Ness, with its shaded forests, tranquil waterways, tumbling waterfalls and rolling heather-clad moors paving the way for some of the most scenic discoveries in the country. Both the walking and cycling routes are relaxed, with hardly any climbs, taking in the Caledonian Canal, the Great Glen Way, pretty Beauly Firth and Robbie Burns’ famous 140ft Falls of Foyers waterfall. Cyclists also re-trace the rich Scottish Highland clan culture in Culloden -where Bonnie Prince Charlie’s run at ruling Britain came to an end and Macbeth’s Cawdor .
Both trips end in Inverness, a thriving riverside city and “the gateway to the Scottish Highlands.
