Activities

The Slaters Arms in the village of Cannich is an ideal base to explore the surrounding Glens and enjoy the range of activities we have to offer. If you like taking part in outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling, mountain biking, etc. then you will feel quite at home. If you prefer a more relaxed experience then you can take in the superb scenery while studying the wide variety of plant, animal & bird life. The area is also extremely popular with artists and photographers.

Thousands of walkers visit the area every year to climb the Munros or take to the many forest tracks. In Glen Affric, long admired for its beauty, there are a number of waymarked walks that cater for all ages and abilities. For those who simply wish to admire the scenery there are several car-parks and stopping points. Don't forget to visit the Dog Falls. Glen Cannich & Glen Strathfarrar are also a must for the visitor. Access to Strathfarrar is via a locked gate (check arrangements in advance) while Glen Cannich is the place to see deer throughout the year.

The rivers & lochs around Strathglass are world famous for their salmon & trout fishing. Many visitors return year after year due to the quality of the fishing. Boats and the services of experienced ghillies can be hired locally. The Slaters arms has the facilty for guests to clean and store their catch. For more information on fishing in the area please visit Strathglass Fishing.

The forest tracks are ideal for mountain bike enthusiasts while there is a custom built MTB centre in nearby Glenurquhart. Cyclists can also enjoy the public roads that are never too busy though care is required as they can be quite narrow in places.

Not too far from Cannich is the conservation village of Tomich and just beyond are the ruins of Guisachan House and the superb Plodda Falls, complete with new viewing platform. Loch Ness is only twelve miles from the Slaters Arms giving guests the opportunity to do a bit of 'monster spotting' or perhaps visit Urquhart Castle & the nearby Monster Exhibitions.
