“Great for coffee and cake or lunch. Friendly staff. There is also a lovely gift shop and a gallery section.”
“Also know as Aonach Mor (the name of the mountain) this is one of my favourite places to ski in the winter and hill walk. The mighty Ben Nevis (UK's highest mountain) is its next door neighbour and I just love this place. The mountain gondola transports you to the top to access skiing in the winter, walking and mountain biking. If that all sounds a bit strenuous, then just go up for a bite to eat at the Snowgoose restaurant and admire the scenery. There's also a cafe at the base station too. It's a 1hr 45min drive from Inverness, but the journey - oh! You drive down through the Great Glen, past Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy - so although it's a wee bit of a haul, the scenery is breathtaking. I've done day trips to ski and walked here many, many times. You just have to get up early and get home late! A stop off in Fort Augustus for the best fish and chips is an added bonus.”
“HIre bikes here and take a cycle along the Caledonian Canal. Finish off with coffee and cake at the Moorings Café.”
“This is one of the best restaurants for super fresh seafood in the area, always really busy and recommend booking to guarantee a table.”
