Self Catering holiday ideas

Roy Bridge is an ideal centre for touring the Highlands with much to see and do within a two-hour leisurely drive - Inverness, Aviemore, Oban and Skye are all about 100Km away.

The scenery is spectacular with mountains and lochs predominating. The seasons change from bleak winter with snow covered peaks, the fresh green of the newly formed leaves in late April, the purple heather clad hills at their finest in August/September to the rich gold colours of autumn.

Locally you can visit the Ben Nevis Distillery, Mallaig Marine World, National Trust Properties at Glencoe and Glenfinnan, Treasures of the Earth Exhibition, several Museums, Cinema and Leisure Centres.

Perhaps you would like an Island Boat Trip, a Gondola Ride on Aonach Mor, one of the many Mini-bus Tours or a Steam Train Journey on the West Highland Line.

Slightly further away is the Landmark Centre at Carrbridge, Highland Wildlife Park at Kincraig, Highland Folk Museum at Newtownmore and the Loch Ness Monster Exhibition at Drumnadrochit.

Winter skiing may be available, weather permitting, at Nevis Range (15Km) which is Scotland’s newest centre with some of the best facilities. Glencoe (60Km) and Cairngorm (85Km) centres are driveable alternatives.

Tuition in skiing, fly fishing and guided mountaineering is available locally.
