Nairn is an excellent centre for exploring the Scottish Highlands, Morayshire and the Grampian Region. The spectacular scenery of the Great Glen, Glen Affric and the Cairngorm Mountains are less than an hour's drive away and offer oppertunities for photography, drawing, hill walking and wildlife spotting to name but a few.
A wonderful array of castles can be found in all directions from Nairn and include Cawdor, Brodie, Rait, Dunrobin and Urquhart Castle. There are a further 20-30 castles and large country houses within easy driving of Nairn, some of which lie in ruinous splendour, others still in use as the family home. From time to time there are events at these and details can be found on www.visitnairn.com

The imposing fortress built by the English to suppress the Highlanders at Fort George is a few miles to the east of Nairn. A visit to there and then perhaps to the world famous Culloden Battlefield and maybe the ancient Clava burial cairns could fill a day before returning to Nairn for a relaxed dinner in one of the many pubs and restuarants the town has to offer.
The world famous whisky trail, 20-30 fabulous golf courses to suit all tastes and pockets, bird watching, dolphin spotting trips, river fishing and many more holiday activities as well as pure relaxation can be made from Nairn- a wonderful little hidden gem on the shores of the Moray Firth.
From Nairn- the Highlands are your oyster!!
