Local Area

The area is ideal for golf, shooting, fishing, bird-watching, hill walking, cycling, skiing or just relaxing, whether passing through or using Glenan Lodge Guest House accommodation as your base. Glenan Lodge Guest House accommodation is situated just 1/2 mile off cycle route 7 which runs from Inverness to Perth. Covered storage for cycles is available. For the fly-fishing enthusiast we have a 2 mile beat on the river Findhorn available to our guests for some of the finest salmon and wild brown trout fishing in the area. For the golfer, Boat of Garten and Carrbridge golf clubs are both within easy reach.

Bird watchers can explore the nearby RSPB Reserves for Loch Garten's Ospreys, Loch Ruthven's Slavonian Grebes and the Insh marshes winter wildfowl, not to mention Golden Eagles, Buzzards and Red Kites. Scotland's 2nd largest malt whisky distillery is within walking distance of the Lodge and the village shop is only a short drive away.

Many places of historical interest are also close by including Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle and, of course, Loch Ness, Skye and John O' Groats can also make a great day out as can Balmoral, the Queen's summer residence. Tomatin is midway between the skiing centre of Aviemore and the City of Inverness, capital of Highlands. An ideal base for exploring this most beautiful part of the UK.
