Scottish Natural Heritage

Welcome to South Highland

Our area encompasses the core of the Highlands, stretching from the Minch in the west, to the Moray firth in the east. From west coast sea lochs and the islands of Skye, Rum and the other small isles, to the tops of Scotland's highest mountains, it's home to some of our most special wildlife and landscapes. Most of the population of the Highlands live here, from urban centres like Inverness and it's hinterland to the remote coasts and straths. Our team are proud to play our part in helping people and nature thrive.

Urquhart Castle 15 miles from
Fort Augustus

Urquhart Castle 15 miles from

A thousand years of history
Urquhart Castle dominates a rocky promontory jutting into Loch Ness. That promontory has hosted some famous names in its long history.

St Columba visited with peaceful intent around AD 580. Not so the English, who seized the castle in 1296. Nor the MacDonalds, Lords of the Isles, who stormed through the glen time and again in the later Middle Ages, ruling with a rod of iron from the mighty castle.

In the twilight of its days as a seat of the chief of Clan Grant, Urquhart continued to prove its worth. It was last garrisoned in 1692, and legend claims that the towering gatehouse was blown up so that the castle could never again be a military stronghold. Over a thousand years of stirring history were buried beneath the rubble.
