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 opportunities 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 more than 20 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.
The imposing fortress built by the English to suppress the Highlanders at Fort George is a few miles to the east of Nairn.
Just a few miles east of Nairn, a visit here is a must and this can be combined with a trip to the award-winning Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre. Near to here are the ancient Clava Burial Cairns, all of which can be combined into a day trip, before returning to Nairn for a relaxed dinner in one of the many pubs and restaurants the town has to offer.
There is also the world famous whisky trail, more than 20 fabulous golf courses to suit all tastes and pockets, bird watching, dolphin spotting trips, river fishing and many more holiday activities.
Nairn is a wonderful little hidden gem on the shores of the Moray Firth and can offer a range of adventurous activities or pure relaxation.
