    Some feedback for the owners: ...

    Some feedback for the owners: Whilst in the guest booklet, it is explained that the property is old and a bit quirky, nothing is mentioned re this is the Sykes description. For instance, there was more than one occasion when we could not get the upstairs shower to work (despite following the instructions of turning on the basin tap first). The left hand side part of the oven was next to useless - it only ever got luke warm, and the right hand oven had a liner which tried to slide out every time the door was opened. The ignitition did not work on the hob either - you had to use a match. A washer dryer would have been nice, as having to dry the washing for a family of 5 on the maiden over the wood burner took some time, especially as it was difficult (not to mention expensive in logs) to keep the burner going for any real length of time (it always went out overnight). Bath sheets would have been a nice touch as opposed to bath towels (bath towels are fine for children but in my opinion, pointless for adults as they are simply too small). The beds were all comfortable and the blankets in the lounge were very handy - it did get pretty cold. Within a few hours of being the the property, one of the downstairs bedroom doors managed to get locked from the inside, with thankfully, no one in the room. Whilst we did manage to resolve this with the aid of the owner, the neighbour down the way and a hefty crowbar, this could have been so much worse, especially if a small child was inside the room when the door locked. Whilst I appreciate the property was a B&B, either keys for the lockable doors whould have been available, or the locks removed from the doors to avoid such instances. The incident freaked my Daughter, such that she would not sleep in the room and had to bunk in with her Sister! The children enjoyed the rope swings and the bathroom suites were all very new and modern. Flooring throughout the property looked new too. Would we stay again - unlikely, but if we did, it would be during the warmer months, to enjoy the views across the Loch.

About the location


Inverness 28 miles.

The small village of Invermoriston is situated just above the south end of Loch Ness, in the heart of the Great Glen. The village is famous for St. Columba's Well, and offers regular events including ceilidh nights in the village hall. The 73-mile long walking path, The Great Glen Way, passes through the village, and is just one of the many trails and walks awaiting visitors to this peaceful spot. Following the main road close to the village takes you to the mystical Isle of Skye, or of course you could stay closer to home and do some monster-spotting, visit the impressive ruins of the 16th century castle Urquhart, or enjoy the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre.The Caledonian Canal runs to Fort Augustus, offering lovely canalside walks. The perfect location for the whole family.
