Top 9 Things to do in Invermoriston, United Kingdom (UK)

July 27, 2017 Frederic Celentano

Invermoriston (Inbhir Mhoireastain in Gaelic) (grid reference NH420167) is a small village 11 kilometres (7 miles) north of Fort Augustus, Highland, Scotland. The village is on the A82 road, at a junction with the A887. The village's most visited attraction is the Thomas Telford bridge, built in 1813, which crosses the spectacular River Moriston falls. This bridge used to form part of the main road between Drumnadrochit and Fort Augustus but was replaced in the 1930s with the new bridge used today.

Reviewed By TubaKoseogluOkcu - Istanbul, Turkey

Visit to the Invermoriston Falls were not part of our plans during our Scotland visit but our guide recommended a short break here and we followed her suggestion.
This is small waterfall, with a nice old stone bridge. It's peacefull but that is it, nothing more, nothing less.

Reviewed By TCR555 - Doncaster, United Kingdom

Took the 1 hour trip from Fort Augustus. Nice clean boat and very welcoming crew. There were plenty of customers so the top deck was pretty full on a nice day. Great views of Loch Ness and good informative commentary. refreshments were available, shame the beer wasn't colder but tasted good nonetheless. there are plenty of options for boat trips around the loch but the added bonus is getting to the locks in operation in Fort Augustus. Reasonable price at £14 a head for what you get. We really enjoyed the trip!

The Falls of Foyers

Reviewed By Gary H - Prague, Czech Republic

Decided to stop here and walk to the views of the waterfall. Be warned there are allot of steps and it certainly get the heart pumping. Great views of the waterfall but don't expect Niagra Falls. Such seclusion is rare. Didn't not see any squirrels but I am sure they were there. Quite a climb back up from the Loch so the Foyers Cafe at the top was very welcome. Highly recommend the scones with cream and jam once your heart has returned to normal.

Clog and Craft Shop

Reviewed By sarahmccarthy749 - Gainesville, Florida

The leather worker is top notch. She does fabulous work. Her wooden clogs are authentic and very well made. All her leather pieces were professionally crafted and unique. I went there twice because I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to buy. The shop was so unique itself. I bought 2 pieces and she gave me a tip on a music group playing The Bears Den . Cannot wait to back again. I am going to mail order a pair of clogs. WOOHOO

Fort Augustus

This imposing old fort, which was incorporated into the Benedictine Abbey in 1876, is bisected by the Caledonian Canal, where to the north the canal enters the famous Loch Ness and into the village itself through a series of locks.

Reviewed By ripley054 - Gateshead, United Kingdom

Ideal place to spend an hour or two whilst touring around Loch Ness. Lots of cafes, shops and amenities as well as a good car and coach park. It was also fun being able to watch boats coming down the series of locks in the town

Caledonian Canal Visitor Centre

We provide information and interpretation on the history of the Caledonian Canal, as well as an activities booking service and gift shop. Come and learn about the canal, sign up for some canoeing, whitewater rafting or canyoning, and take home some unique souvenirs made by Scottish designers and manufacturers. We have maps and information on how you can travel along the length of the Caledonian Canal, or the Great Glen Way between each of the stopping-off points, how long it will take, facilities, etc. The canal and lock gates outside our door make up the living museum which is the Caledonian Canal.

Reviewed By NavG - Australia

Always wanted to see this type of stepped canal system. Boat crossing take place every hour. Brilliant educational experience for the Kids and Adults. Well worth the time to watch the crossing as water is allowed into the different section to lift or lower the boats to account for the difference in height on the two lakes it joins.

The Clansman Centre

Reviewed By SJCiren - Bristol

The centre has live shows to give visitors a real taste of life as an early Highlander. These need to be booked in advance however. Unfortunately our visit didn't tie in with any show availability, but the museum exhibits were still interesting, and the owner was incredibly generous with his time and talked us through various pieces of historical interest. He's also super genned up on whisky and really knows his Distilleries! The shop is crammed full of wonderful Highland treats.

We were visiting Fort Augustus and happened upon this shop while the proprietor was making a small ornament. We watched for a bit and my wife was intrigued with her work and purchased a couple of item. After returning to the states my wife indicated...MoreThank You mantasatnite for the nice comments, especially the reference to being a young lady! We will be happy to send items if desired. Cheers.

Absolutely worth using this road. The views are stunning and there are places to stop for photographs. Can't understand reviews that seem worried about it being narrow- there are signs telling you this everywhere!
