  • “Lovely cottage in quiet surroundings.”

    Lady who owned cottage was very friendly. Cottage had everything you could need. Just a shame we had to leave early.

The property

Strathpeffer 3 miles.

A spacious detached log-clad cottage, on the banks of a pretty loch in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

One of just three similar cottages set in a quiet private plot, this cottage near Strathpeffer offers fabulous uninterrupted views across Loch Achilty to the mountains beyond.

This Strathpeffer cottage would be ideal for a small family group or group of friends who will simply love the stunning location and the peace and tranquillity.

The very bright and spacious accommodation in this Strathpeffer cottage is all on one level, with two comfortable bedrooms situated off the main open plan living area, which is a very sociable space and benefits from sliding doors out to the front of the cottage.

Outside this Strathpeffer cottage is a private seating area which is a great place for a quiet read or perhaps some alfresco dining.

The Highlands of Scotland not only offer beautiful scenery, but there are also lots of things to do and places to visit.

The capital of the Highlands, Inverness, is a short drive away and is well worth a visit, especially if you are looking for good restaurants.

For a great beach, visit the seaside town of Nairn on the Moray Firth coast and perhaps explore the fishing villages along that coastline.

Take the road west to Plockton, Kyle and Skye, or just stay closer to home and spend time in the lovely spa town of Strathpeffer, with its great walks and cycle paths.

For wildlife lovers there is much to see on land, in the air and on the water so keep your camera close at hand.

This Strathpeffer cottage will ensure a wonderful holiday for all.

About the location


Inverness 20 miles.

Often compared to a Bavarian Mountain resort, the picturesque spa village of Strathpeffer owes its growth to the discovery of water springs during the 1700s, and was declared in 1819 to be the healthiest drinking water in Britain! The original Spa Pavilion has been magnificently restored after a period of disuse and now serves as a venue for a variety of events, including concerts, dances, dramas and exhibitions. The former Victorian railway station, which in times past brought many visitors from near and far, has now been beautifully restored to house craft workers and their shops, and is also home to the Highland Museum of Childhood. Visit the restored Pump house (also a Tourist Information point), take a walk along a forest track, or enjoy the views from the nearby pictish hill fort at Knockfarrel. Whatever you decide there's plenty on offer for all the family.

Note: One well behaved dog only welcome at the property.
