Bridgend House is over 165 years old and has a claim to have been a 'poor house' at the end of the 1880s and then a prison. Later it was used as lodgings for soldiers returning from World War I. Behind the house is the River Enrick which flows from high up in the glens and down into Loch Ness.
The present village green was the site of a busy cattle market in early 1800 when drovers brought their cattle to the village and then onwards to the docks at Inverness via the drovers tracks which now shadow the Great Glen Way walking route.

Outdoor Activities
In addition to the Great Glen Way which runs 73 miles from Fort William to Inverness, this area has unlimited opportunities for walkers of all abilities. Close to Drumnadrochit is scenic Glen Affric (one of the longest glens of the Great Glen) and Glen Strathfarrar which is home to some of the 284 Munros in Scotland. Golf, fishing, horse-riding and shooting are all available locally. During the winter season, ski-ing takes place on the Nevis Range near Fort William and in the Cairngorm mountains near Aviemore.

Sightseeing
While you are here, you shouldn't miss a boat trip on Loch Ness which will give you a splendid view of Castle Urquhart from the water. There are regular departures from spring to autumn from Drumnadrochit and also Inverness. The locks of the Caledonian Canal can be seen in the pretty village of Fort Augustus.

Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Culloden Battlefield and Fort George are just some of the other historic places of interest in this area. Step back further in time and visit the stone circles of the Clava Cairns and the Corrimony Chambered Cairn which is situated in Glen Urquhart.
