Best of all it’s literally a stroll away from the beautiful highland countryside. In just 5 minutes you can be at a tranquil loch-side with views through the trees to the hills above this gorgeous highland town. There are many wonderful walks to take; to waterfalls, along rivers, through ancient forests, or up Ben Vrackie (2760 feet, the hill above the town)  These walks all start from the hostel’s front door! The area is also dotted with distilleries, castles and ancient standing stones all within easy reach.

Or you might want to simply get your boots on and get exploring.
