Drumnadrochit - What's in a Name?
The name “Drumnadrochit” has always fascinated visitors. It comes from the Gaelic Druim na Drochaid, which means “Ridge of the Bridge”. The bridge over the River Enrick was the reason the first residents settled in the area in the seventeenth century. For anyone not sure how to pronounce it, just follow the example of the locals and call it “Drum”! The Green (where you will find Morlea) is the centre of the village, and was a sheep and cattle market in days gone by. Today you can enjoy a coffee or a cold drink in one of the cafés and pubs near by or have a picnic on The Green itself.

Getting Around

Drumnadrochit is located on the Great Glen Way, which runs from Fort William to Inverness, hence making Morlea B&B an ideal place to stay for the hill walker, hiker, ambler, cyclist or those just wishing to escape the daily grind of life. Likewise, we are also an ideal base to explore the stunning scenery and rich history of the Scottish Highlands with Urqhart Castle and Loch Ness (for those avid Nessie hunters) just 5 minutes’ drive away.  Similarly Glen Affric, Foyers Falls, Isle of Skye, Inverness and the Black Isle are also all within easy reach.

There is a large free carpark in the centre of the village with a tourist information centre and public toilets. For guests at Morlea we have a carpark at the rear of the building.

Regular buses stop in the middle of the village for Inverness, Fort William, and Skye.

If you are interested in Scottish history, then the nearby ruin of Urquhart Castle and its visitor centre is a must-do. It will take you about 15 to 20 minutes to walk to the Castle from the village. The visitor centre will explain the castle’s 1000 years of history. How rival clans, Jacobites and government troops frequently fought over it and after the castle was blown up in the seventeenth century, how local people used the stones to build their houses and farms.
