One of the green tourism pursuits available from Shenval B&B is birdwatching. Only a short drive from your B&B accommodation at Shenval B&B, the RSPB’s Tollie Red Kites site provides close-up views of our most graceful bird of prey, with equally stunning views across Easter Ross to Ben Wyvis. Food is put out daily by a team of local volunteers and you can enjoy your birdwatching from the comfort of a specially-converted farmstead building. The visitor centre is open from 9 am to 5 pm but there is open access to the outdoor viewing screens. Feeding time is 2.30 pm in summer (BST) and 1.30 pm in winter (GMT).

A must see exhibition for anyone who loves walking the Scottish hills. Until 28th February, the Stalls foyer at Eden Court, Inverness, plays host to the Munro Legacy Exhibitionq. This exhibition, presented by The Munro Society, tells the story of Scotland’s mountains as a source of recreation from its 19th century beginnings to the present day and, in particular the contribution of the man whose name is synonymous with Scotland’s highest mountains: Sir Hugh Thomas Munro. Stunning pictures and a wealth of info on hillwalking in Scotland.
Wild Glen Affric: an exhibition in the indoors comfort of the Stalls foyer at Eden Court, Inverness. In the not too distant past, Northern Scotland was a very different place. The Caledonian Forest, an ecologically diverse temperate rainforest, covered much of the landscape. Only a small number of remnants of this great woodland now exist; Glen Affric possibly the most spectacular. This selection of images by Kenny Muir aims to present to the viewer a glimpse of Scotland closer to how it once was, highlighting the importance of preserving these areas of natural beauty.
