About the Area

Garve is a perfect location to base yourself, offering access to a wide range of interests in the Highlands. There is an abundance of activities to keep you active or interested during your stay. Rosemount Cottages & Bothy are ideal comfy and cosy retreats to rest yourself after your days activities, whatever those activities may be.

From the amazing variety of walks, the city of Inverness within easy reach, Lochness, the majestic Glen Affric and Strathconon, or the stunning Corrieshalloch Gorge and Bealach na Ba Pass. With wildlife all around, you will be in a perfect position to see wild red deer in the glen of Strathconon and visit the Red Kite reserve at Tollie or dolphin watching on the Moray Firth. Just to name a few.

At Rosemount Cottages and Bothy you can walk straight from your door onto the Black Water river walk. This takes you to Little Garve Bridge and Water Falls where there is also a forest play park. At Silver Bridge river and forest walk you follow the gorge along the edge of Black Water river. This is a walk on the level and is suitable for most abilities. You can also walk to Rogie Falls and Contin Forest. Contin Forest includes a great mountain bike track.
