Make a holiday cottage in Drumnadrochit your home away from home

Things to do

-Sightseeing: As well as trying to spot elusive Nessie, boat trips on Loch Ness are always popular with tourists. All kinds of tours are available throughout the year and a cruise is one of the best ways to view the Loch. Several companies operate directly out of Drumnadrochit, whilst others depart from nearby towns. Whether out fishing or just sightseeing, heading out onto Loch Ness will reveal lovely views of the Great Glen, Urquhart Castle, and the Caledonian Canal.

-Historical attractions: Urquhart Castle is perched on a promontory that looks out onto Loch Ness. The medieval structure was once one of the largest castles in Scotland and has been witness to dozens of sieges and battles over the course of 500 years. The castle, which is open to explore, offers amazing views of the loch as well as The Great Glen. There is also a visitor centre on site that includes informative displays and exhibitions covering the castle’s history, as well as numerous medieval artefacts found around the area. Urquhart is located just two miles outside of town and is a short hike from most holiday homes in Drumnadrochit.

-Ancient sites: The Corrimony Chambered Cairn is a short drive west of Drumnadrochit and is a good example of a Bronze Age passage grave. The grave is surrounded by 11 standing stones and was built by Neolithic farmers. Some researchers believe that the chamber was built to prepare and transfer the dead to the stars. The site is open daily and is free to enter.

-Outdoor pursuits: The Trail of the Seven Lochs is a 50-mile walking, mountain-biking, and horse-riding path that runs in a loop just east of Loch Ness. The trail passes several smaller lochs, including Loch Mhor, Loch Ashie, and Loch Duntelchaig. Suitable for avid walkers and cyclists, the route is waymarked and offers stunning scenery that is unique to the Scottish Highlands and one of the main reasons people opt for holiday cottages in Drumnadrochit.

-Leisure: The village green appears to have come straight from a postcard. Located right in the heart of Drumnadrochit, the green is surrounded by lovely shops, cafés and restaurants, many of which have views of Urquhart Castle. The green is also famous for its scale model of the castle as well as beautiful flower displays. The village green is a favourite place for locals and tourists to relax and take in the scenery.

Weather in Drumnadrochit

Those who prefer warmer temperatures will want to visit Drumnadrochit between June and August, when highs generally exceed 15°C. The weather cools down considerably starting in October and doesn’t start to heat up again till March. Because of the microclimate created by Loch Ness, winters in the area are actually fairly mild. Early morning frost is common, but snow is not. Drumnadrochit generally receives a sprinkling of snow each year and roads remain largely ice-free, making the region suitable to visit in the autumn and winter.

Travel to Drumnadrochit

Visitors coming to holiday cottages in Drumnadrochit from outside the Scottish Highlands will want to either fly to Highlands and Islands Airport (10km from Inverness), take a train to Inverness, or drive directly to Drumnadrochit. Car hire is available from the airport and central Inverness. Drumnadrochit is a 20-minute drive from Inverness and just over 30 minutes from the airport.

Dularich; Perfect in every way.

5 of 5
The owners are kind, generous. The attention to detail was brilliant. Their advice for eateries and places to go was excellent and helpful. We even got to see the Dolphins at Chanonry Point. The house was spotless, warm and cosy. All of our needs were met. We have had a truly spectacular visit for two weeks and are planning next years visit. The two local eateries were good value for money and offered friendly and efficient service. Places to visit are numerous depending on your needs. Uruquart castle, Dunrobin Castle are brilliant Brodie although good was less value for money than Dunrobin. We decided to do a road trip to the Kyle of Lochalshe including Eilean Donan Castle. The setting of the Castle is fantastic but we decided not to go in. Rogie waterfall, Divach waterfalls are well worth the visit and the Big Burn Walk was also enjoyable. Elgin and the black Isle are splendid. So as for things to do plenty. If you need a beach then Findhorn and Lossiemouth are great. Thanks to Cathy and Eddie for sharing their lovely home with us at Easter. Kim and Gary

A gorgeous relaxed farmhouse style cottage, great for the 4 kids and dog, plenty land to explore round about and some lovely welcoming touches such as shortbread, milk in the fridge etc. We had a fabulous time and will definitely be back. Great for exploring Loch Ness and surrounding areas. Thank you so much to owners Graham and Rita xx
