Make a holiday cottage in Drumnadrochit your home away from home

The village of Drumnadrochit is an ideal base to explore the Scottish Highlands and Loch Ness.

HomeAway has a lovely selection of holiday cottages in Drumnadrochit that boast between 1 and 3 bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 persons.

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.

There were four adults and 2 dogs, plenty of room for us all, the garden was huge and due to its location there was plenty of wildlife on your doorstep, Swallows nesting and a hare in the garden one evening, there was a lovely walk from the cottage to Plodda falls, that's a must do, also some great woodland walks. We must mention the Tomich hotel which is in walking distance of the cottage, they did the most amazing food and their hospitality was second to none ! we will most definately be returning to the Croft in the near future.
