Agriculture and tourism

Drumnadrochit attracts visitors from world over thanks to its location on shores of Loch Ness, but as Lynsey Stewart has been finding out, there's more to picturesque Highland Village than just Nessie hunting. Looking for Loch Ness Monster fairly major activity in Drumnadrochit. Thousands of visitors come from all over all year round to catch glimpse of elusive Nessie and make most of breathtaking scenery at same time. Then there are boat trips out onto Loch and chance to visit official Loch Ness Exhibition Centre. But there's another attraction just down road from Monster Exhibition which is also proving major hit, particularly with younger visitors. Drum Farm Centre, owned and run by Don and June Fraser, aims to give children chance to visit working farm, see range of animals and find out little more about farming and countryside. Main Emphasis Is On Fun, Says June, Who Came Up With Idea For Centre. But also through this we want to keep generation interested in farming educate younger generations about rural life. Gear towards nursery, pre-school and primary children as well as families, Drum Farm Centre is house in former farm buildings built around central courtyard. It's here that energetic youngsters can burn off their extra energy by scooting round on range of mini tractors. And thanks to strategically placed tearoom with its extensive windows, parents can keep watchful eye on proceedings while taking it easy with cup of tea. Other attractions include Giant Trailer ride which takes visitors round farm itself and offers insight into life down on farm. Ride, Which Runs Throughout Day And Is Included In Admission Price, Also Gives Visitors Chance To Meet And Feed Some Farm Residents, Including Highland Cows. During lambing season there's also chance to feed new arrivals. Even if weather takes turn for worse, there's plenty to keep wee ones amuse. Indoors there are trampolines and Giant play barn kitted out with rope swings and plenty of straw to guarantee soft landing. For less adventurous, there is cuddle corner with its cute collection of Drum Farm Centre bunnies, while classroom upstairs provides quiet spot away from outside attractions and is perfect for young book-worm to read and learn about farming. Tea-room Is Also Must On Any Visit To Drum Farm. Not only does it provide parents with comfortable vantage point, but it offers most delicious home-baking too. Although it offers range of hot meals, filled rolls, baked potatoes and soup, it is famed for its amazing scones and creamy cakes. They alone are worth visit! We aim to give customers whole experience-somewhere to play, relax, get good coffee and home-baking, say June. We aim to their expectations.
