  • "Brand new well equipped and comfortable property ideally located for exploring around Loch Ness and the Highlands."

    All necessary amenities within a short walk and Inverness is only a short drive if you require the services of a modern city. Don't miss the oportunity to explore the local walks just on the door step.

  • "When you book somewhere that has no reviews at all, there is a bit of nervousness around what you’re going to find when you arrive."

    As it turned out we didn’t need to worry as when we arrived at Carn Glas we immediately knew it was lovely and spotless. It wasn’t until we got inside and read the welcome letter we found out we were the first ever guests to stay in the house, and Michelle the owner had left a lovely selection of biscuits and wine for us. The house itself was amazing, everything was brand new! We loved the downstairs open plan kitchen, dining room and living room downstairs with lovely views over the hills beyond. The bedrooms and bathrooms were quiet and comfortable and Michelle had amazing Highland Soap company products in every bathroom. The location was brilliant for us with a young family. There were two play parks within five minutes walk from the house and a great walk through Urquhart Bay Woods down to the edge of Loch Ness. Also within 1 minute walking distance was a well stocked Scotmid and a fish and chip shop. It was also well situated for Nessie spotting and 2 minutes from Urquhart castle. I have no idea why Sykes only give this 4 ticks in their rating, it’s one of the best places we’ve ever stayed. If you’re after somewhere quiet, luxurious and well located for exploring Loch Ness you can’t go wrong with Carn Glas.

    Dear Alastair, Thanks for leaving such an amazing and thorough review. As you say, the location is great for ameneties and things to do and that is one of the reasons we chose that location. We absolutely love that area and spend a lot of time up there ourselves. We now have a Facebook page.
