Borlum is an historic farm dating back to the 16th century with its service to Urquhart Castle, providing castle residents and retainers with necessary sustaining provisions! Today sheep and horses are seen grazing the fields around the castle.
Let us offer you a unique opportunity to savour the beauty of our Highland countryside, to welcome you to warm and comfortable accommodation.
The central position of Drumnadrochit is ideal for exploring both the immediate area and further afield. We boast a surprisingly favourable weather record!
A wide choice of restaurants, fishing, hill walking, boating, tennis and bowls are available locally. Borlum Bay woods are a nature conservancy site for rare woodland and bog plants and wildlife, see www.woodland-trust.org.uk for more details.
Inverness offers a good shopping centre, golf, curling, swimming pool, museums, and theatre. It is on a good bus route.
This area provides some of the most wonderful scenery in Scotland with much to see and do for everyone. For those who just want peace and beauty, there are many roads and tracks that lead deep into the surrounding hills and glens with frequent opportunities to see buzzards, herons, roe deer, red squirrels and other wildlife. Our clients often find they get closer to wildlife on horses as the deer are used to seeing the horses on the hills too. Monster spotting is another good activity but we cannot guarantee a sighting!
The central location of Drumnadrochit makes it a fine starting point for touring the Highlands. You can take a different route each day. It is worth noting that if you come in winter you are equidistant between the cairngorm ski slopes and Nevis Range, so you can change skiing venues as conditions dictate.
