    The accommodations held all the essentials and more. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked with all the appliances and utensils one might need. The location is an excellent pivot point from which to journey to Highland sights, then come back to this quiet cottage near a hilltop to rejuvenate. The owners next door are friendly, helpful, and unobtrusive. The fresh eggs, wine, and milk were a nice welcoming touch on arrival. We had a truly lovely time during our stay and would most definitely go back.

The property

Drumnadrochit 5 miles.

This pretty white-washed semi-detached cottage is situated in a small hamlet on a hillside and is ideally located for touring the stunning north Highlands.

Next door to the owner’s own home this very private and well-presented cottage would be ideal for a couple, a family group or group of friends who want to enjoy time together in this most popular area.

The cottage is tastefully presented and is cosy and welcoming with two smart bedrooms on the upper floor.

The ground floor has a very well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast table with stools and everything a chef could need to prepare gourmet meals!

The sitting room is spacious and cosy and the large TV with surround sound ensures that pleasant evenings can be enjoyed around the fire together at the end of an active day.

To the front of the cottage is a small enclosed garden with private seating areas where an early morning coffee or evening barbecue can be enjoyed.

From here guests can put on their walking boots and really explore or perhaps take a short drive into the vibrant village of Drumnadrochit very close by on the banks of Loch Ness.

A most pleasant day can be spent circumnavigating the famous Loch and visiting not only the capital city Inverness but also the smaller villages on the other side of the Loch some with great pubs and restaurants.

As you would expect the wildlife in this area is amazing so always keep your camera close.

Perhaps Nessie will raise its head!

A truly spectacular location and a sweet and welcoming cottage that will tick all the boxes.
