    It’s a stones throw from the falls of foyers which is well worth a visit. The home was easy to find and easy access through the key safe. Lovely garden for the dog to the rear and space for parking. Unfortunately we couldn’t work out the heating system so our first night there was a very very cold one. I did try an ring the ownerl but couldn’t get through. We worked out that the pictures on the walls are actually heaters strangely. It would be good if this was explained in the welcome email just to avoid teething problems. Also be prepared for a cold shower. The shower system alternates from cold to boiling hot water in tandem. We tried having a bath instead but the same from the taps. Despite the above issues with the facilities we did have a lovely time.

    Thank you for the kind words about the property and whilst I am very sorry that you had this bad experience at my property, I can confirm that the document containing all information and operating institutions for both the primary and secondary heating systems within the property was attached to the welcome email. I have also confirmed with my housekeeper that the property was heated on the afternoon of your arrival, the wood burner was set ready to light and there were sufficient logs for the period of your rental, most of which had been used by the time of your departure. The stove has a back burner which heats the radiators and water in addition to the immersion water heater and the IR heating panel picture heaters. Other guest reviews have only ever stated that the cottage was lovely and warm and cosy and I have received no other feedback or private messages regarding lack of warmth or hot water but I will have everything fully checked over prior to my next guests arrival. I do see that I had one missed call (but no emails or messages via Sykes) on the date of your arrival and I can only apologise for missing this call and can only assume this was because it was late evening and I would have been asleep (I was an hour ahead as on holiday myself on that date).

    The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the cottage was spotless. Be prepared food wise if you are visiting Foyers as the local store was not stocked well with fresh food. There is a lovely coffee shop called Cameron’s a few minutes walk away which is worth a visit. The local hotel is only a five minute walk away with stunning views of Loch Ness from the bar. The food served looked lovely, however, due to staff shortages in the kitchen they were only taking bookings for hotel guests last week. Everywhere is dog friendly. There are stunning walks not far away from the cottage for all abilities of walkers. Would thoroughly recommend staying in the cottage and have already booked to go back next year.

The cottage was immaculately clean with a well equipped kitchen . Lots of modern touches like the heated pictures ! The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of drawer /cupboard space We loved the private garden and the views of the mountains in the distance . Foyers falls is on the doorstep and is amazing ! We never tired of the stunning views en route to our daily destinations especially the road to Fort Augustus. We would definitely recommend this cottage and would love to return sometime !

    The cottage was absolutely spotless and couldn’t be faulted in any way. An abundance of wildlife in the vicinity and walks straight from the door. The shop/ cafe in the village was welcoming and Cameron’s coffee shop, 5 minutes walk down the hill, is a must. We would love to come back.

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.

  • Winter
  • Off-season
