The fresh air, the peace, the spectacular sunsets and clear starry skies (no light pollution here) - all these extras come free of charge!

Around Achmony there are numerous attractions on your doorstep, not to mention Nessie hunting! Inverness is only 14 miles away and it is also an excellent base for an adventurous tour of the Highlands and Islands where you can take in many more castles, distilleries, lochs, idyllic white sandy beaches and 100s of the most magnificent mountains and Munros!
Since the site is on a steep hill, a car is advisable and there is ample parking.
