Activities in the area of Gasgan House
Gasgain is located right in the heart of Locheil where we are surrounded by some of the most stunning views and diverse wildlife that the Scottish Countryside has to offer.
Just beyond the croft land that Gasgan situated upon are a number of small trails and tracks to walk, run and cycle. If you choose to venture further then you can walk along the loch side and watch the sun set or even follow the loch to it’s opening into Loch Linnhe near Fort William.
Only a short drive towards the northern end of Locheil is Glenfinnan. An area steeped in history due to its strong connections with the Jacobite Uprising. In recent years Glenfinnan has been made famous by the (now dubbed) ‘Harry Potter’ viaduct that during the summer months still welcomes, across its tracks, the Jacobite steam train that was magically transformed into the Hogwarts Express for the Harry Potter Films.
Enjoy a great drive along the Road to the Isles that provides a gateway to many of the ‘must see’ spots in the Highlands and Islands. The road winds through some beautiful scenery on the way including the silver sandy beaches of Arisaig and Morar that’s iconic views were used as the backdrop for the Scottish movie Local Hero.
If you continue in the same direction you can visit the Seaside fishing village of Mallaig, which has lots of visual delights of it’s own as well as providing access to see the islands with regular ferry trips to skye and Outer Hebridies.
In the other direction and defiantly worth a visit is Glencoe. The haunting beauty of the area truly is breathtaking. Glencoe is in history including the infamous Massacre of Glencoe. There is a great verity of walking and climbing opportunities for all levels which makes the location a popular tourist hotspot for travellers along the A82 and the West Highland Way.
If mountains are your thing then a visit to the Outdoor Capital of the UK, home to Fort William and Ben Nevis, should be high on your agenda. As well as scaling the UK’s highest mountain you can ride the Nevis Range Mountain Gondola as a relaxing way to take in the sights or an as easy way to access the plentiful walking, running and cycling tracks and trails including the World Championship Mountain Bike track. During the winter the area offers plenty of Skiing & Boarding opportunities.
