Walking Trails

Scotland boasts some of the most beautiful walking trails in the world, with breathtaking scenery and stunning landscapes that are sure to leave you in awe. We have compiled a short list of our favourite walks near the Farm for you to explore during your stay. 

Coastal Walk
Distance from Farmhouse: On your doorstep!
Distance of Walk: 0.5 miles to the Coast (extendable)
Difficulty: Easy
Leaving directly from the Farmhouse, this easy trail leads you to the Moray Firth Coastline. Stroll through the old Christmas tree forest on your way, where you can spot deer and try your hand at identifying exotic mushrooms.

Once you've reached the coast, you can sit and enjoy the view from the cliff, or meander in either direction for as long as you please. Those fancying a longer walk might attempt to reach Rockfield to the North, or Balintore to the South.
