Top 5 Activity out of 222 on TripAdvisor in the whole of the Scottish Highlands 2015. It's like no other 4x4 driving experience you have been to! It's for fun, not a lesson, you do all the driving and there are no strangers in your car as you and your friends navigate round our crazy Highland themed adventure track! You will drive two varied laps so you have new things to come to on each lap. Get ready to drive into the Wallace Pass, over Nessie's Back, climb the Golden Eagle Hill, drop over the Salmon Leap, drive through the Original Whisky Trail to name a few and don't forget Scotland's highest See-Saw! It really is unique. The Extreme Quad Biking is for the over 16's only as the bikes are big and the terrain is not suitable for children but it is awesome for adults who enjoy exhilaration! Yet again we have created a track that is much more than a flat field. It makes use of the natural features of the hill side and woods and gives you a quad biking experience that is more than a trail or a trek, it too is unique. We will take you out in your own private group so you are not with strangers wherever possible, that way your group can go with the pace you decide. You can always stop to rest if you need to while the others carry on and then pick you up in a few moments. We want you to be happy! We offer Corporate Venue Hire, Group bookings, Stag and Hen Packages, Gift Vouchers, Luxury accommodation and more too. « less

Once one of Scotland's mightiest strongholds, Urquhart's strategic location gave it a key role in the Scottish battle for independence. It came under the control of Robert the Bruce before a 150-year power struggle between the Stewart dynasty and the MacDonald Lords of the Isles. « less

Loch Ness is already the most famous lake in the world but our aim is to make it better understood. This is achieved through a fully audio visually guided 35 minute tour. The presentation is theatrical in style and integrates the real tools and archive footage from four decades of research. As part of our educational remit, under 6s go free. The facts are objectively explained and whilst keeping the mystery centre stage, we place it in the context of the loch's very unusual properties. Thus we are endorsed by Scottish Natural Heritage as "A portal to the unique natural phenomenon that is Loch Ness". We offer a huge range of retail onsite and boat cruises on Loch Ness in the summer months. There is also a large cafe and restaurant attached to the site. « less
