There is plenty to choose from in the Highlands if you like sport
If you like nothing better than a relaxing round or two then your are not short for choice. Inverness itself has two top notch golf courses where you can sneak in a round or two while the rest of the family enjoys browsing around Inverness' lively city centre.
If you like a bigger challenge than Nairn (11 miles) boasts the championship Nairn Dunbar Golf Links Course. Slightly further afield there is Fortrose Golf Course (19 miles) and another beautiful championship course at Royal Dornoch (45 miles approx).
Try your hand at catching Wild Salmon, the king of game fish. At Clava we offer a 1 1/4 mile stretch on the River Nairn, which consists of 10 pools. The River Nairn is mainly a Salmon and Sea Trout river with a fair chance of catching the odd Brown Trout. The season runs from 11th February to 7th October. Spring sees some fish caught but all fish must be returned until after 1 May. For Salmon the best fishing runs from mid July to September but as the River Nairn is a spate river alot depends on rainfall. Permits are free to our residents.
Of course fishing does not need to stop with the River Nairn, as the Highlands boast many of the top Salmon fishing rivers in the world. Clava is ideally located to reach many of these rivers within a 30 - 45 minute drive. These rivers include The Ness, The Findhorn and of course the best Salmon River of them all The Spey.
One of the best ways to see and experience the Highland is on two wheels. If you don't have room in the car for the bike, then why not hire bikes from Ticket to Ride in Inverness. Clava Lodge is also on the North Sea Cycle Route.
Strathnairn, arguably one of the most beautiful vales in the Highlands, is the perfect place for walking, whether on the country roads , forests or up in the hills, it offers stunning scenery and abundant wildlife.
Further afield, why not walk part of the Great Glen Way which runs from Inverness to Fort William, following the course of Britain's greatest geological fault, taking you along the northwest shores of Loch Ness and Loch Lochy.
In short, there are numerous walks on offer, graded to suit the quiet stroller or the more adventurous.
From boating on Loch Ness, to canoeing, kayaking, wind surfing etc at the excellent Loch Insch or Loch Morlich to swimming at beautiful beaches, there is no shortage of water activities available.
