A Walk Beside The River Beauly, near Inverness, plus an amble along Nairn Beach.
We used the Flowerburn Bed and Breakfast in Nairn, as our base for the Beauly River walk with our hosts. It is on the Walk Highlands website, as the River Beauly and Lovat Bridge circuit walk and is a nice moderate length for some gentle exercise to help justify some nice food and drink later. We also had an amble along the beach at Nairn.
Here are some other walks that we have done from the same base;
- Walking at Loch an Eilein & the Anagach Woods
- Exploring Burghead and Burghead Beach (link to follow soon)
A quick note for photographers – if you go to do this walk, you will be near Fffordes Photographic, a place with a good reputation. We didn’t have time to visit when we were there, so can’t describe it more than that (yet).
And so to the images. Firstly, a mix of natural and man-made with this pylon part of the transmission network from the hydro-electric plant nearby.
And here’s Beaufort Castle, on the River Beauly, emerging from the trees. Former home of Lord Lovat of WW2 Commando fame.
We were on the part of the walk beside the river as the sun broke through to highlight the trees on the bank opposite.
Some local ‘wildlife’ keeping an eye on us from a safe distance.
And then back at Flowerburn B&B for a wee rest.
Before a trip out onto Nairn Beach for some more exercise.
