In search of the Loch Ness monster in the Great Glen
From Glencoe to Fort William in the south to Inverness in the north, the Great Glen (An GleannMor) is a natural fault line that snakes across the Highlands dividing Scotland. Running through pastoral towns and villages, among ancient oak and conifer forests, and along scenic lochs, the Great Glen is a popular route to take a motorhome rental Scotland.
The Great Glen is 80 beautiful miles of the A82 studded with waymarked trails that just invite a picnic. Scotland’s culture and history are not lacking in the Great Glen, with highlights such as the Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre and Urquhart Castle. FortAugustus is home to the Caledonian Canal Visitor Centre and the Clansman Centre, a local history museum. It is a convenient base for your motorhome rental Scotland, whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or a monster watcher.

On the northern shore of Loch Ness is the bustling village of Drumnadrochit, legendary home of the most celebrated monster in Scotland, Nessie (and Loch Ness Brewery!) and site of the Loch Ness Centre. It’s not just conveniently located near UrquhartCastle- there is a miniature model of it on the village green.
In the further reaches of the Great Glen, Arisaig offers warm hospitality and is home to the Land, Sea and Islands Centre, with fascinating displays about the area’s natural and cultural history.
