The Long Road Home

Above Loch Ness

This is one of my favourite roads to travel along.  It is the south side of Loch Ness and not used as much as the main north side road.  You get less traffic and better views this way and this spot is one of my favourite views.  You also have the choice of travelling along side Loch Ness or taking a scenic high level route.  Loch Ness is also seen better from this side and you are lower down.

The road was built by General Wade after the Battle of Culloden (1746) to enable his troops to keep us unruly Highlanders under control!
