    “Perfect from start to finish”

    We stayed at Wendy's Place in October last year, but it's taken me until now to write this review (always a good sign in itself when places live long in the memory). The cottage was perfect from start to finish, top to bottom, front to back. Everything has been done with care and attention, and the quality of the decoration, furniture and equipment puts other places to shame. The kitchen is spacious, the living area very comfortable, cosy and warm (can't beat a wood-burning stove), the bathroom ...

    We stayed at Wendy's Place in October last year, but it's taken me until now to write this review (always a good sign in itself when places live long in the memory). The cottage was perfect from start to finish, top to bottom, front to back. Everything has been done with care and attention, and the quality of the decoration, furniture and equipment puts other places to shame. The kitchen is spacious, the living area very comfortable, cosy and warm (can't beat a wood-burning stove), the bathroom just what you need after a day's walking, and the bedroom was snug and warm. The whole place was spotless and the cleaner obviously does an excellent job. Very much a cottage but with modern standards and quality throughout. For example - the TV set-up - it all worked (this sounds trivial but the amount of cottages where there is some sort of fault or clunky issue with the set-up is, from experience, unbelievable); The Wifi signal was strong and reliable throughout the cottage. The welcome pack was a nice touch, and we were sad to have to return south after what seemed a very short time (always a good sign when your left wanting more!). The location on the edge of the village was just what we wanted - tranquil and peaceful, yet very much within the village. Handy parking space right by the cottage - easy to bring things in either through the front or back. The Falls of Foyers are just minutes away (very dramatic especially after heavy rain) and for fans of hydro-electricity, the nearby power-station was worth seeing (there's no visitor centre, but the buildings on the shores of Loch Ness are inspiring in themselves). Morag's crafty bothy is well worth a visit (from where the cups in the cottage hail) for a mid-walk brew and a cake. Going for a run on the first night, it was a surprise and a treat to come across a deer just yards from the back door - you really are in the heart of the Highlands, where everything is just bigger, grander and generally more impressive. Can't fault it - great price, and I'd really rather not review it to keep it a secret ;) What are you waiting for.

The property

This privately situated and stylish ground floor apartment is set on the edge of the green in the middle of the small village of Foyers on the banks of Loch Ness.

The apartment is a simply perfect holiday base for a couple who want to explore the wonderful shores of Loch Ness and the surrounding area.

Wendy's Place is very well presented with its smart furnishings, quality fittings and tasteful touches making sure that visitors will love the space and comfort on offer here.

The bedroom overlooks the front garden and comes complete with orthopaedic mattress, White Company sheets and two hot water bottles if required!

There is a fabulous bathroom with underfloor heating and a large open plan living area with a very well-equipped kitchen and spacious yet cosy sitting room complete with woodburning stove, ensuring comfort and relaxation.

On warmer days you can enjoy sitting in the small private garden, where the tops of the surrounding mountains can be viewed over the picturesque village green, relaxing after a busy day exploring the area.

The apartment is ideally situated for those who want to put on their boots and leave the car behind whilst they set off and enjoy the fabulous forest walks and pathways that lead down to the shores of the Loch including the South Loch Ness Way and the Red Squirrel Trail.

It is also a great base for touring the area with this part of Scotland having much to offer.

You are spoilt for choice for places to eat and drink in the village, all within walking distance.

The Waterfall Cafe and the Camerons are good for a hearty breakfast or lunch.

The Craigdarroch Hotel has a welcoming local pub and Foyers House keeps a perfect lit bar offering over 100 malt whiskys, both of which offer food throughout the day.

A pleasant three mile walk through forest and fields takes you to the Whitebridge Inn, another good place to eat.

The Dores Inn is a popular bar/restaurant with a stunning loch view that provides complimentary transport for those who might prefer a drink with their dinner.

The capital city of the Highlands, Inverness is well worth exploring and of course the Culloden Battlefield has to be on the to do list.

On the other side of the loch is the atmospheric Urquhart Castle in the popular town of Drumnadrochit.

From Inverness, visitors can take to the water and join a Dolphin Watch Cruise where not only the dolphins can be enjoyed but the views from the water are fabulous.

So much to see and do with this lovely apartment ensuring a great holiday to be remembered for a very long time.

About the location

FOYERS

Fort Augustus 13 miles; Inverness 20miles.

Foyers is a pretty highland village situated on the quiet eastern banks of Loch Ness and is accessed via a scenic single track road from Inverness that runs along the side of this famous Loch passing through various small villages until you enter Foyers. The village itself boasts a village shop and Post Office along with a friendly cafe, two hotels with bars and restaurants and an award-winning cafe with shop. Foyers is perhaps most famous for its spectacular 140ft waterfall known as the Falls of Foyers where the River Foyers drops into a gorge leading into Loch Ness. In Victorian times the Falls were very popular and visitors arrived to see them by paddle steamer from Inverness. The road from Inverness into Foyers can be continued through the village and along this quieter side of the world famous Loch and eventually you will arrive in the bustling village of Fort Augustus which has an excellent butcher, nice shops, restaurants and the famous flight of lock gates, often busy with boats. The area is ideal for walkers, cyclist and wildlife spotters and of course the scenery is second to none.
