The Property

A charming, detached stone cottage occupying a private and peaceful location on a small holiday park, half a mile from the banks of Loch Ness on the outskirts of the village of Invermoriston in the magnificent Highlands of Scotland. This typical crofter's cottage is well equipped and comfortable and suits a family or a small group of friends who want to explore this stunning area. The well-presented accommodation in this Highland cottage is on one level and consists of two bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom, along with a sitting/dining room, which has a cosy atmosphere, and the large, bright fitted kitchen with breakfast area has an external door with access to a private side patio. The views from the garden are widespread and breathtaking and just a short walk from this Invermoriston cottage is the fast flowing River Moriston with its Thomas Telford bridge. There is also an external building with dartboard and pool table, perfect for fun in inclement weather. The village of Invermoriston itself has a friendly local inn providing good pub food, as well as many events including ceilidh evenings in the village hall. The ruins of Glenurquhart Castle are close by, or stroll along the Caledonian Canal, which runs to Fort Augustus. Invermoriston is a perfect base for a holiday as you can easily enjoy a day trip to the west and cross the bridge to Skye, head to Drumnadrochit to the north or journey east into the city of Inverness. Also a trip to this part of Scotland isn’t complete without visiting Loch Ness -you may even catch a glimpse of the monster! Mountain biking, horse riding, cruises to spot dolphins or Nessie; whatever you wish to do, this Highland cottage is the perfect base and ensures an unforgettable holiday for all.
