A short stroll through fine alder woodland leads to a peaceful spot on the shores of Loch Ness. Though the bridge has currently been washed out, it's still possible to reach the lake if you're willing to scramble over some logs.

Aucun moyen de traverser la rivière, cette promenade est sympa mais bien inutile pour ceux souhaitant atteindre le loch.

The views are neither majestic nor superb. But the fact that you have climb on trees and hop over rocks to get to the other side of the small river, and the fact that you can paddle in the infamous Loch Ness was enough for the kids to make this small trip a 4star trail. So we agreed on that.

Fantastic trail- very easy to follow, with a gorgeous view of the Loch at the turning point in the loop. I was looking for something quick and easy to do while waiting for Urquhart castle to open and this was perfect.

An easy walk out to a beautiful view of Loch Ness where you can dip your toes. With the bridge out, you have to do some exciting scrambling across a beaver dam to get to the beach, but it's well-worth the effort!
