Horses Welcome Establishment

We offer a range of self-catering cottages and cabins, all close to Loch Ness, and all offering a balance between a spectacular environment and convenience of access to the city of Inverness and neighbouring facilities. Whichever one you choose, we are sure that you will not be disappointed. We are right on the trail of the seven Lochs and very close to the South Loch Ness Trail.

For the horses

Permanent stables with rubber matting and automatic drinkers. Paddocks and hill grazing available with plenty of hard standing for lorries and trailers.

For people

Self-catering log cabins on site with log burners. Sleep four (minimum two nights). There is also a nearby B&B and cottages sleeping 4-6 people with one based beside Loch Ness and a local pub.

Riding opportunities

We are on the trail of the Seven Lochs (a 50-mile loop) and half a mile from the South Loch Ness Trail, which can be linked with the Great Glen Way to circumnavigate Loch Ness. There are also plenty more shorter loop rides available. 


From Inverness take the B862 to Dores and bear left up the hill for 1.5 miles (still the B862). Turn right to Loch Ness Riding.

Riding Centre

We offer qualified instruction in dressage, jumping, basic carriage driving, western riding and training horses plus endurance riding.  Qualified instruction on your horse or ours. Regular competitions are held in all disciplines.

We have an indoor school and outdoor arena plus some XC fences. Spectacular off road hacking beside Loch Ness.
