  • "The views from the house over the loch is breathtaking and being able to sit in the hot tub and watch the sun go down was fabulous."

    Spacious comfortable house with 3 log burning fires. Would recommend this holiday for any family or friends looking for a relaxing weekend . Beautiful walks and boat trips near by.

  • "Fabulous cottage."

    Loved our stay here and would recommend highly. Spacious and clean, would love to return some time. The balcony hot tub is lovely and once heated stays warm overnight, so just needs a quick fire to reheat. Unfortunately it took 3 nights to get hot though as it needs a lot of logs for the initial heat up. First night needed kindling, second night used the entire stock of 'starter' logs but still not hot enough. Third night lovely as we purchased more logs. Suggest bundles of logs to purchase at the cottage, as we wasted 2 of our 4 nights stay. Anyway ace after a long hike.

  • "Although the location was beautiful things like not having eight plates for eight people and very few cooking pans let it down."

    It was very warm when needed but the doors sticking and locking was annoying and there is no clothes dryer which is also useless when it rains most of the time in scotland in autumn

  • "The location of this property was excellent for exploring Loch Ness and the wider Highlands."

    The views from the house are fantastic and the new balcony and hot tub were a nice touch. We were really pleased with the accommodation - the kitchen was excellent and had plenty of space for us to eat together. The living room is small but cosy, and the bedrooms had plenty of space for what we needed. There were a few quirky features, but everything was made clear and overall it was a great experience. Would recommend.

  • "It was very easy to book and correspond with Sykes."

    Guisaichean is a lovely cottage. Bedrooms are spacious and airy. Beautiful views. Farmstyle kitchen was absolutely the best. Spent many an entertaining evening around that large table with the fire roaring!! Also enjoyed the woodlands. The new deck provides a wonderful outdoor space to sit and relax. The only thing that I was not expecting was the busy road close to the cottage but got used to it very quickly!!! Had a wonderful week.!!!!

  • "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.

  • "Awesome cottage with breathtaking views."

    It is deceptively large with a comfy traditional kitchen with a spectacular view of the Loch. Owners are very helpful and sent us a helpful guide with directions including pictures. They also have friends nearby who dropped off a pint of milk and welcomed us. Great base to tour the highlands especially Skye. Nice garden with access to the woods and the Great Glen Way.

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.
