The Property

Croy 2 miles. An immaculately-presented first floor apartment, peacefully located in the beautiful Scottish Highlands next to the owner's home. This neat and tastefully appointed highland apartment is ideal for a couple who want a relaxing break and who will enjoy spending time together in a rural and stunning location. With all the accommodation at first floor level in this Croy apartment there is a comfortable double bedroom with views overlooking green fields to the surrounding hills. The bedroom also has an en-suite shower room and lots of storage space. The open plan living area has a well-equipped kitchen, cosy sitting area and extra little things to make your holiday easier such as the electronically controlled window blinds! The front door opens onto a large, spacious balcony with furniture; a fabulous place to sit and enjoy a morning coffee or pre-dinner drink whilst watching out for the red squirrels and deer that can be frequently spotted here. The area close to your Croy apartment is brimming with history and the Culloden Battlefield is just two miles away, plus also close by are the atmospheric Clava Cairns; a prehistoric burial ground which is well worth a visit. You may wish to explore by cycling around the area and cycle hire is available. Also fishing can be enjoyed, with the River Nairn accessed via a five minute walk on a quiet track leading from your highland apartment, plus there is a riding centre two miles away, and famous Loch Ness is 40 minutes away. This is an area full of wonderful things to experience, but at the end of the day you will simply love to return to the quiet comfort of your Croy apartment.

About the location

Croy

Nairn 7 miles; Inverness 10 miles; Inverness Airport 3 miles.

Croy is a small village overlooking the Moray Firth in the Highland region of Scotland between Nairn and Inverness. Just a mile from Croy is Kilravock Castle which has been the seat of the Clan Rose since the 15th century. Nairn is seven miles away and is an attractive and lively seaside town dating back to Victorian times. It has long been a popular holiday destination and is just 16 miles from the Millennium city of Inverness. Nairn even lays claim to being one of the driest and sunniest places in the country! The town offers some of the top beaches in Scotland and cleanest bathing waters in Britain. Also one of the only two dolphin colonies in the UK is based in the Moray Firth. Nairn is steeped in history and is closely linked with the Battle of Culloden, whilst nearby Fort George is Europe’s best preserved 18th Century military fortification. Golfing enthusiasts will be attracted to the three 18-hole championship courses, including the Nairn Golf Club which staged the Walker Cup in 1999 and Castle Stuart has hosted the Scottish Open.

The owners of the cottage were very pleasant and readily available to help if we needed assistance. They made us feel welcome! I would certainly recommend Squirrel Lodge for its location. The scenery in Scotland is one of the best we have ever had the privilege to see, the wonderful lakes and also the beautiful mountainous landscape. Do not take our word for it, go and experience what this part of the world has to offer.

Great hosts! The most beautiful country I have been to - never been to Scotland before, it is stunning, awesome and wild. Will come again. The Lodge was great, just right for two, nice and warm with little touches of welcome we appreciated after the long drive.

Mr Branigan, Smethwick, January 2014

Squirrel Lodge is a fabulous place to stay. It looks beautiful in and around it, and the feeling of peace when you are there cannot be put into words. The owners, are lovely people, really thoughtful and welcoming, without being intrusive. This is a gem of a find, and will now be our place of choice when staying in Inverness. There was nothing about Squirrel Lodge that we found disappointing, except having to leave!

Mrs Blair, Dumbarton, September 2013

Absolutely fantastic holiday. Lovely cosy flat in quiet country surroundings. Excellent base for touring the Moray Firth area and beyond. The owners made us very welcome, and we wish them well for the future. Once again it was an absolutely fantastic week.
