  About your Area
 

Abriachan (Gaelic: Obar Itheachan) is a village in the Inverness committee area of Highland, Scotland. High above the western shore of Loch Ness, the village has a population of approximately 120. There are many events held in the Abriachan community forest each one proving that fun can be had in the outdoors. The children of Abriachan travel by bus into Inverness or to Dochgarroch for school every day. To really get a taste for Abriachan come to one of their community events like a Ceilidh, the Highland Games or a workday in the forest.

At the bottom of the Abriachan hill, where the Kilianan stream meets Loch Ness is Abriachan Garden Nursery, with a woodland walk and plant selling area. The Loch Ness Clansman is only 1 mile away with panoramic views overlooking Loch Ness, view online at www.lochnessview.com

[edit] Abriachan post office

Abriachan post office opened on 25 July 1882,[1] and for many years from the early 1960s was run by Katharine Stewart and her family. An account of life in the Highlands, and of its postal services, was published in 1997.[2]
