Even when in bustling Inverness, you are never very far away from quite breath-taking rugged and romantic scenery where the people speak Gaelic one of the oldest languages in the world. Thousands of visitors each year come to marvel at the wildly beautiful and dramatic scenery of great mountains, forests, glens, tumbling crystal rivers and waterfalls and above all mysterious lochs which provide just about all the holiday ingredients that any visitor could wish for.
Craigdarroch is centrally placed for enjoying all of the northern Highlands.
