About the location

CAWDOR

Nairn 5 miles; Inverness 12 miles.

The picturesque and historic village of Cawdor has much to offer visitors who will appreciate the quiet ambiance of the village. Cawdor is famous for its 'Macbeth' connection with its 17th century Castle which is still home to the Cawdor family today. There is also a first class tavern boasting modern Scottish food with flair accompanied by a first class choice of wines. The city of Inverness, known as The Capital of the Highlands, is the gateway to the countless delights of the Highlands of Scotland. Of particular note is the legendary Loch Ness which is surrounded by some truly breathtaking scenery, although most visitors are usually on the lookout for something a bit more mysterious! Just outside the city is the Culloden Battlefield at Culloden Moor (National Trust). The site of the last major battle fought on British soil. Inverness is the gateway to the stunning west coast and even a day trip across the sea to Skye is possible. Inverness City itself has much to offer – museums, an art gallery, fine theatre and leisure facilities, not to mention shops, pubs and restaurants. The area is packed with opportunities for outdoor pursuits especially as the Cairngorm National Park is just 40 mins drive away where skiing, snowboarding, climbing and so much more are readily available. For the Golf enthusiast this area offers an abundance of championship courses within a short drive and of course mountain bikers will be impressed with the selection of tracks that pass through fabulous scenery. The nearby Moray Firth is home to a diverse range of wildlife and marine life including dolphins, which can be seen from the shore or on trips from the harbour.
