Location: Pretty Special

2 hr drive 

With the advent of the NC500, more people like to take on the 500+ mile, road trip adventure, around the Highlands. For many though it can be a bit exhausting moving on every night. 

Aultbea Lodges are in a great location to unpack and stay awhile in one place, with the option to explore further afield on a daytrip.

This map indicates locations reachable within a 2hr drive from the Lodges. Leaving plenty of time for walking, exploring & activities throughout the day.

By Car / cycle / own transport click here for written travel directions

By Air Our closest airport is Inverness, (76miles) direct flights include Amsterdam, Schipol Airport and London Airports

By Bus - There is a bus service that operates to and from Inverness. Although possible to use it, the timetable is very restrictive and there are few opportunities to travel around the area by public transport. WesterBus Timetable

Particularly after Inverness you will find the scenery is very picturesque and you will probably find yourself stopping to take photo's. Be aware that public toilets are few and far between.

Rogie Falls, just before Garve, is a nice leg stretch / dog stop with a car park, public toilet and short woodland trail to the river (you might see salmon leaping). Longer trails available

Corrieshalloch Gorge, at the Braemore Junction, is another great stop with short or longer walk available. 

The new visitor centre, with refreshments and toilets is now open. For National Trust Members the whole site is free. If you are not a member there is £5 parking fee and no further cost to use the facilities and explore the gorge viewpoints and walks.
