The Property

A neat and cosy cottage, ideally situated on the outskirts of the pretty highland village of Drumnadrochit, on the banks of Loch Ness in the stunning Scottish Highlands. Situated next to the owner's home, and yet benefiting from total privacy, this Drumnadrochit cottage is ideal for a couple who want to embrace the wonderful wildlife and scenery in this thriving area of Scotland. With a slightly quirky layout, the cheerful bedroom is accessed from the entrance porch and then leads through into a smart sitting room with dining area, with its welcoming feature fireplace and tasteful interior decoration. An external door from the fitted kitchen in this Drumnadrocht cottage allows access to a compact and private patio with furniture and a barbecue, a great place to relax after a busy day. The bustling village of Drumnadrochit attracts many visitors due to its close proximity to popular Loch Ness and the romantic ruined Urquhart Castle, just a couple of miles away. It offers great local facilities and is ideally placed for heading north into Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, with its numerous attractions, or west and perhaps taking the bridge over to Skye, where a world of mystical beauty awaits. For wildlife enthusiasts, a trip into Glen Affric and Strathglass will not disappoint with its diverse flora and fauna including red squirrels and deer, stoats, weasels and otters to name but a few! You will love discovering the area surrounding this cosy Highland cottage.
