An easy and popular walk is out of Nairn to Househill: you can follow the River Nairn from its mouth at the harbour past the common land known as The Maggot, and Nairn Dunbar Golf Club, along the riverbank to Jubilee Bridge and Prince of Wales Walk to Firhall Bridge. You can return down the other side of the Nairn River, through Queens Park, or walk out via the A939 to Househill Courtyard, where you will find a lovely café, a farm shop with local artisan produce and Loch Ness Furniture which sells beautiful furniture, homeware and gifts. Wildlife on the riverbank includes a bevy of mute swans and over 20 other bird species nesting in and around The Maggot.

If you feel like using a different mode of getting around, Green Hive are delighted to introduce their new e-bike (and optional trailer!), available for hire to anyone who becomes a member. The e-bike is pay as you go (membership is free, pay just for what you hire/use), so it’s an affordable as well as environmentally-friendly option. The e-bike and trailer are both community resources owned by Green Hive for you to hire at any time of year within Green Hive’s opening hours.
