A well appointed, roomy & warm cottage. Open fire is lovely, massive drying room is great!

4 of 5
A great base for road biking, mountain biking, running and hill walking. Canoeing also (although we did not partake). It is really well located so that there are great outdoor activities available in all directions.

Amazing, perfect apartment in perfect location!

5 of 5
The most amazing location for our break! From this apartment we got to visit Loch Ness, the coast and go on the Jacobite as well as just enjoying the Loch just 2 mins walk from the apartment. In relation to the apartment it has everything you need and more to enjoy your stay. Feels like a home from home. Would definitely stay here again!!
