Nestled on the Great Glen, Ailsa Cottage is a quaint, semi-detached bungalow with ground-floor living in Laggan near Fort Augustus, Inverness.

The cottage looks out onto stunning mountain views and is an ideal location for exploring the lochs of Inverness, with three bedrooms sleeping up to six guests.

After a long day in the mountains or visiting nearby towns, Ailsa Cottage provides all the home comforts in a contemporary interior; kick off your shoes in the porch and enter the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where you can warm up with hot drinks, throw your muddy clothes in the washing machine, and enjoy a home-cooked meal around the table, before settling down in the sitting room with your feet up by the open fireplace.

The three double bedrooms at Ailsa Cottage are bright and airy with plenty of space for storing your items and getting ready for the day ahead, whilst the bathroom offers a bath with shower over to suit all guests.

For a peaceful space to enjoy your surroundings, the cottage has an enclosed garden with furniture and a barbecue for dining alfresco with the misty mountains in the distance.

Nearby you will find a shop where you can purchase basic items, whilst Fort Augustus lies a short journey north of Ailsa Cottage, offering a supermarket, pubs and restaurants for dining out in a beautiful hamlet on the southern tip of Loch Ness.

There is also plenty of history to explore in the area, including Urquhart Castle and the Caledonian Canal and heritage centre.

Just south of Ailsa Cottage sits Spean Bridge, a small village and scenic area with plenty of outdoor activities on offer, such as hiking, climbing, water sports and wildlife watching, as well as Leanachan Forest which offers gentle walks and bike rides in a beautiful setting.

Fort William is situated a little further south on the shores of Loch Linnhe, known as the gateway to Britain's highest mountain peak, Ben Nevis, and the Glen Nevis valley.

In the town centre, you will find plenty of shops and cafés to enjoy, and the West Highland Museum which focuses on regional life and history.
