Silent Stories from the Loch is an emotional journey into the history, the experiences, the lives, loves and hearts of the people who lived in one remote and breathtakingly beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands close to Loch Ness. These are stories which have passed down through the generations…
This highly visual Virtual Tour includes a visit to one of the most haunted houses in Scotland with an incredible story behind it. Likewise, a graveyard close by which has a chilling and unexplainable history dating back to the 1600s.
You’ll hear about the events which unfolded here directly after the Battle of Culloden, which will be difficult for me to share with you without shedding a tear (so please do be forewarned). This includes a visit to the little-known graves of Jacobites who succumbed to their injuries and were buried where they took their last breath after fleeing the battle.
You’ll be visiting the homeland of the Frasers of Lovat, including the ruins of the Township of Balnain. We’ll share with you many of the stories of the Frasers who lived there.
Then there was James Fraser himself, also known as Dun Bonnet, who escaped Culloden, but could not return to his home here. Instead he found a cave in the woods nearby where he hid for seven years to evade capture. You’ll stand in the very spot his house once stood and then you’ll visit his cave.
You’ll walk through several remote township remains, and see the foundations of old Inns as we share with you the events that unfolded there centuries ago… and then on to a cave frequented by robbers as we recount the grisly stories of those they encountered.
There is even a moor where ghostly battles have appeared on only one particular anniversary at dawn, and yes, we’ll be taking you there too… and to a haunted hollow which even the hardiest of men claim is haunted.
Many famous travellers journeyed down this road in the 1700s and recounted their experiences of this hauntingly beautiful part of the Highlands in their books… Rabbie Burns, Boswell and Johnson, Thomas Pennant… But it is not their stories we will be sharing with you on this tour. It is the stories of the Highlanders who actually lived and died here, and whose lives were unfolding while these famous travellers passed through.
We hope you will join us for this very special Virtual Tour, one which is incredibly close to our hearts. It has been a long time in the making, but when you watch it, you will understand why.
We can promise you, you will never see Loch Ness in quite the same way again…
