With French doors opening into the open plan living area this is where guests can relax and appreciate the smart and well-equipped facilities along with a sumptuously kitted out bedroom and bright shower room.

Within easy walking distance are the excellent facilities of Drumnadrochit which include hotels, lively bars, restaurants and a grocers.

Take a short walk up the hill and visit the world famous Urquhart Castle and visitors centre and learn about the fascinating history of the castle and surrounding area.

For those wishing to tour the North West Highlands then this is a great location and a day trip over the sea to Skye can be easily enjoyed.

The capital city of Inverness is just 14 miles away and you can continue into the famous Malt Whisky Trail or enjoy the stunning beach In Nairn whilst perhaps looking out for a few passing dolphins.
