Drumnadrochit 9 miles.
Tucked away on a pretty highland hillside near the village of Abriachan surrounded by natural woods, this upper floor apartment makes a perfect get away from it all!
Situated beside the owners home, but totally private, this apartment would be ideal for a couple, a small family or group of friends who want to explore the highlands and experience the gentle pace of life and the beauty it has to offer.
An open tread wooden staircase leads up to the balcony at the front from which there are great mountain views and a seating area making it a perfect spot for an early morning coffee.
The open plan living space is warm and welcoming and the kitchen is very well equipped to ensure preparing meals is easy.
There are two deceptively spacious bedrooms, one double and one with a single bed and there is a double sofa bed in the sitting room.
Abriachan is a scattered rural community situated above the shores of Loch Ness and a major attraction in the area is the Abriachan Forest Trust which provides a network of walking paths, bike trails and even a bird watching hide overlooking the loch and giving the opportunity to view the abundance of wildlife in the area close up.
The capital city of the Highlands is just a short drive away and as you would expect has excellent facilities, especially for dining out with a wide range of first class restaurants.
Just a few miles west from Abriachan is the famous Urquhart Castle with an excellent visitor centre which is certainly well worth a visit.
The area is rich in wildlife, fabulous scenery, castles and lochs and returning to your cosy hillside apartment at the end of a busy day will be a pleasure.
All first floor. Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x single. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with double sofa bed.
