May is #NationalWalkingMonth!


You may not realise it, but May is #NationalWalkingMonth and now the evenings are lighter for longer, this makes it the perfect time to get outside and get walking – so why not explore your local area by foot?

Tornagrain is the perfect place for hikers, dog walkers and cyclists, with many forest walks on the doorstep and all the benefits of the Cairngorms close at hand.

Nearby there is the famous Culledon Woodland and Battlefield Trail, which offers the chance to see a variety of wildlife and provides an enjoyable day out for the whole family. The trail is bursting with history as it combines a visit to the Culloden Battlefield – where the Jacobite Rising met its end - and the stunning prehistoric Clava Cairns.


There are also many woodland paths and walks with hidden castles close by, including Cawdor Castle, made famous as the setting of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Tornagrain is also near to the beautiful white sands of Nairn beach, where you can walk for miles and enjoy magnificent sunsets throughout the year and even more magical glimpses of the Northern Lights in the dark skies over the Firth during winter.

If you are up for going slightly further afield, it is just a 30-minute journey to the Cairngorms - a walker’s paradise of mountains and stunning green lochs, with easy-to-access pathways - something for all ages - surrounded by sleepy villages along the way.

ZeroC at Tornagrain offers the very best of rural and modern life in an area steeped in history and outstanding natural beauty. Book your viewing today and secure your new home in this beautiful location.
