    The cottage exceeded our expectations and the rooms were bigger than we thought, based on the photos. The cottage was clean, had all amenities and is located in a great position overlooking Loch Achilty. Quiet, peaceful and off the beaten track, with easy access to lots of places! The local area is wonderful to explore on foot, bike and boat- we loved the rowing boats that were available to use. The hosts were friendly, helpful and available for any question. Toby (the dog) was always very welcome visitor. We had a fantastic stay and will return again!

The property

Strathpeffer 3 miles.

This well-equipped, detached Strathpeffer cottage stands on the shores of beautiful Loch Achilty, in the magical Scottish Highlands.

One of a small and exclusive group of holiday properties, this Strathpeffer cottage occupies a truly spectacular location, boasting beautiful loch views.

This Highland cottage is ideal for a couple, a small family group or a group of friends who will embrace the outdoor adventures available on their doorstep, whilst appreciating the peaceful atmosphere.

There are two comfortable bedrooms and a bright open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen and doors leading out to the patio, an ideal place for a quiet read, or simply enjoying each other’s company whilst gazing across the water’s edge.

The pretty spa town of Strathpeffer is close by and well worth a visit, especially in the summer months when the local pipe band often offers traditional entertainment.

Further afield, the Highlands are home to spectacular locations, and this Strathpeffer cottage is ideally situated to visit Skye, Plockton, Inverness and Loch Ness to mention but a few.

Why not stay closer to home and explore the wonderful cycle paths, walking routes and wildlife that the area has in abundance, or spend a peaceful afternoon casting a line into the loch?

A great location and a delightful Highlands cottage to be enjoyed throughout the year.

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.
