Achaneich is ideally placed in the heart of the Highlands – perfect for walking, fishing, climbing, skiing, or plain old sight-seeing. The River Spean at the bottom of the garden is popular with kayakers. The Nevis Range ski and mountain-biking centre on Aonach Mor is 5 miles away. There are plenty of beautiful walks – from the straightforward circuit around the Commando Memorial in Spean itself, to the wonderful parallel roads of Glen Roy.
