About Borlum Farm
Borlum is an historic farm dating back to the 14th century with its service to Urquhart Castle, providing castle residents and retainers with necessary sustaining provisions! Today sheep and horses are seen grazing the fields around the castle. The MacDonald-Haig family have farmed at Borlum since 1956, when it was purchased from the Seafield estate. Over the ensuing years, with a second and third generation at the helm, we have converted cottages for holiday accomodation and expanded our campsite with new facilities. Despite the recent closure of our Riding Centre we are also expanding our Livery business. So....
.....Let us offer you a unique opportunity to savour the beauty of our Highland countryside, to welcome you to our warm and comfortable self catering cottages with panoramic views of loch and glen. To stay on our spacious and well appointed camp site just a 10-15 minute walk from Loch ness shore. We offer top quality livery services and grazing for your horse/pony. Indoor school. 2 outdoor arenas and our riding country is second to none! Why not take advantage of all we offer and bring your own horse on holiday too!
The central position of Drumnadrochit is ideal for exploring both the immediate area and further afield. We boast a surprisingly favourable weather record!
A wide choice of restaurants, fishing, hill walking, boating, tennis and bowls are available locally. Urquhart Bay woods are a nature conservancy site for rare woodland and bog plants and wildlife, see www.woodland-trust.org.uk for more details.
Inverness offers a good shopping centre, golf, curling, swimming pool,ice rink, museums, cinemas and theatre. It is on a good bus route.
This area provides some of the most wonderful scenery in Scotland with much to see and do for everyone. For those who just want peace and beauty, there are many roads and tracks that lead deep into the surrounding hills and glens with frequent opportunities to see buzzards, herons, roe deer, red squirrels and other wildlife. Monster spotting is another good activity but we cannot guarantee a sighting!
