Wild Swimming

Indulge in some exhilarating and invigorating wild-swimming and take a dip in a fresh Scottish loch. Loch Ness, due to its depth, tends to be particularly cold so we would recommend venturing further afield to Loch Duntelchaig or Loch Ceo Glais – around 12 miles from the city. Rising in popularity in recent years, wild swimming offers you the chance for some mindfulness. All whilst immersing yourself in glorious scenery. Remember to pick up any litter and avoid disturbing wildlife on your visit.


Discover the roads and trails around Inverness and Loch Ness on two wheels and enjoy a much more immersive experience. With bikes and E-Bikes available to hire in the city, let us help you plan a cycling holiday with the luxury of Ness Walk as your base. To learn more about what Inverness and Loch Ness have to offer a cyclist, check out the excellent Visit Inverness Loch Ness and Loch Ness 360. Or add on a Cycle To Loch Ness Experience with Ticket to Ride when booking your stay with us! These sites will be able to fill you with inspiration and have you prepared for a cycling break. Much better for the planet than travelling by car.

EV Touring

Discovering the area on foot or by bicycle isn’t for everyone. For those who wish to tackle the breath-taking roads and venture further afield, we will have you and your car recharged and ready to go!
