The property

Inverness 6 miles.

This comfortable cottage is situated on the edge of the world-famous Culloden Battlefield, site of the last battle of the Jacobite rising.

With lovely open views from the front, Rannoch Cottage is located next door to the owner’s home and yet retains complete privacy from it.

This cottage is ideal for a couple, a small family or group of friends, who will appreciate the pretty countryside location and also the convenience of having a city within a short drive.

There is a spacious open plan living area where visitors can relax after a busy day and enjoy home-cooked meals together around the table.

Within close proximity are two major tourist attractions and the battlefield can be easily accessed on foot, along a pathway leading onto the main area.

A walk around the battlefield is a pleasant and thought provoking experience and the far-reaching views to the surrounding hills can be appreciated.

If you turn left from the cottage and follow the road you will come to Clava Cairns, a well-preserved Bronze Age cemetery, which is a fantastic example of the distant history of Highland Scotland, dating back about 4,000 years.

The cottage not only boasts ease of access to both these popular visitor attractions but is also close to the Culloden Moor Inn, which is open all day and serves good pub grub.

The vibrant city of Inverness has an excellent array of restaurants and pubs, and from here guests can perhaps take a day trip across along the Moray Firth or drive the famous Malt Whisky Trail.

A homely cottage in a first class location.

About the location

INVERNESS

The Capital of the Highlands, the city of Inverness, is the gateway to the countless delights of the Highlands of Scotland. Towering mountains, dark lochs, great forests and precipitous sea cliffs are all within easy reach. Of particular note is the legendary Loch Ness, which is surrounded by some truly breathtaking scenery, although most visitors are usually on the lookout for something a bit more mysterious! Just outside the city is the Culloden Battlefield at Culloden Moor (National Trust). The site of the last major battle fought on British soil, there is an award-winning display depicting the battle, whilst a walk on the field serves as a poignant reminder of the clansmen who lost their lives. Inverness itself has much to offer, museums, an art gallery, fine theatre and leisure facilities, not to mention shops, pubs and restaurants. The River Ness flows through the city and both the river and neighbouring Moray Firth are home to a diverse range of wildlife and marine life including red kites, along with dolphins, which can sometimes be seen from the shore, or on trips from the harbour.
