Walk 2......River walk

This is the walk which starts across the B852 road from Camerons Cottage and Glenlia Farm entrance. Walk along by the side of the river Foyers and then over a bridge which passes over a small waterfall and then past 3 large fields. You can then go straight on and it takes you on a longer walk across the Dell Estate to Whitebridge. Alternatively you can turn right up into the forest. A little way along you can turn right or left. Left takes you to Lower Foyers and then you can climb back up the hill by the falls and come out at the shop although the final drag up the hill is pretty hard work. If you turn left in the forest it takes you further up and you finally get to a viewpoint over Loch Ness.

Spring lambs.

We drove past the recently born Spring lambs running about on the fields near the village of Dores looking out on to Loch Ness. They were enjoying life on a sunny morning.
