A mere 7 miles (12kms) from your holiday accommodation base at Shenval organic Bed and Breakfast,  the village of Drumnadrochit, on the shores of Loch Ness, plays host to the Glenurquhart Highland Gathering and Games, on Saturday 23rd  August 2014, at Blairbeg Park.

If any of the above sound unfamiliar or rather do not mean a thing, then you'd better have a look in at the Glenurquhart Highland Games Website  for the full programme of events. You may also wish to take part in the Glen Challenge, full details available from the same website.

Other local outdoor sports events close to your accommodation at Shenval B&B (marathon, fun runs, duathlon, walking festival, orienteering, etc), along with wildlife watching activities, are listed under "Outdoor events" in the left hand column.

The Glenurquhart Highland Gathering and Games are not by any means the only Highland Gatherings and Games easily accessible from Shenval organic Bed & Breakfast, near Loch Ness. Most of those listed in the Highland Games diary below are to be held in locations less than 2 hours' drive away from us. Some of the smaller events even have you join in if you -adults and children- feel brave enough or want to have a bit of fun!

The 2013 Highland Games season is now a distant memory. The 2014 calendar will be published here as and when we get to know about it.
