Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom in stunning rural location. Ideal for outdoor activities.

1 Tullochclury is a semi-detached house (owners next door) situated half a mile down a forestry track with walks, cycling and mountain biking from the front door!

This property is ideally placed for touring the Highlands with Inverness 12 minutes by car, and the Cairngorm National Park just minutes away.

The area is perfect for wildlife with many species of birds as well as red squirrels visiting the garden feeder. If you walk 300 yds along the track you come to the beautiful Moy Loch where you can have fun spotting otters and osprey competing for the trout.

The house is warm and cosy with central heating and a wood burning stove (wood provided) and so is comfortable any time of the year. There is a bathroom (with shower over the bath) as well as a wet room (shower only)

A short drive away Dolphins can be seen from the beach or there are Dolphin watching boat trips from Inverness.

Tomatin distillery is 3 miles away where tours of the distillery are well worth a visit.

Quiet & Cozy rural perfection!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, we cannot rave enough about this lovely home.

Jon was a delight to be in touch with as he was quick to respond to emails and was superb in answering questions. He and his wife were certainly kind when we had a delay in our arrival - and met us with a smile to show us around and explain the details of the house and electronics. **WiFi was fabulous!

Upon our arrival, there was milk in the fridge, a loaf of bread and biscuits, as well as a stocked larder of staple items. Even a lovely bottle of red wine was there for us to enjoy. Very thoughtful :).

We were lucky enough to be in Inverness during the Highland games, and I was worried about ticket availability. Jon called the council and assured me that there would be tickets available when we arrived later in the Summer - and he was absolutely right! I'm glad that he eased my mind and we did indeed have a great time at the games.

We had a traveling party of 4 adults and we were so comfortable in the spacious bedrooms, 6 person dining room, and large comfortable sitting area. The beds were large, comfortable, and delighfully clean/fresh.

*If there is one word to describe the home, it would be meticulous. Every detail is thought of and provided - even down to the peanuts to feed the squirrels outside :). There are walking trails that line the property (with great views), and cows/sheep to watch in the adjoining field. This was such a relaxing part of our journey, that we hated to leave.

**Jon and Di were superb and gracious hosts. We will definitely recommend this lovely home to our friends and would absolutely stay here again if we are lucky enough to get back to the Highlands.

Thank you for the hospitality!

Amazing place - the photos do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing cottage - slept 3 couples comfortably. Great kitchen. Great sitting room. Wonderful zoo of animals on both sides of the house to keep us company. The owners live in the other half of the duplex. They were there when we needed them, but perfectly happy to leave us to ourselves too. Absolutely blissful. Note - if you're hoping to be close to Inverness, be sure to rent a car; it's not within walking distance. That was, of course, one of the bonuses for us, though!

Fantastic location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place and were very sorry to leave. By and far the cleanest Home Away I have ever rented, the best appointed and the most comfortable. The location is serene and beautiful and still just a few minutes drive from Inverness airport. The owners are located next door and are extremely welcoming and kind. They left us some wonderful bread and wine and gave us some great tips for what to do and see. Really wonderful people. The kitchen is perfect, with everything you could need, and we really appreciated being able to cook a few meals at home. The dining room is sun filled and overlooks a private yard and we really enjoyed watching the squirrels, birds and pheasants that were wandering about all the time. There is a washer in the kitchen and a regular dryer in an outer building. There is a full fridge with a freezer, complete with ice for your gin and tonic! The other side of the house looks out over a field filled with sheep. The master bedroom and a full bath with a walk in shower are on the ground floor, perfect for my husband who has problems with his leg. There is a full bathroom upstairs and two more bedrooms. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels and blankets. The wifi is fast, the owners provide lots of maps and brochures and give wonderful recommendations for where to go and what to do. Very highly recommended!

Ideal location & accommodation for visiting Loch Ness, Inverness & Cairn Gorm

  • 5 of 5

Great hospitality & house. Ideal location for walking & visiting surrounding areas. Would recommend walk around Loch Moy & Cairn Gorm. Particularly enjoyed watching the wildlife attracted by the feeder next to the dining room. It was the first time seeing red squirrels & we saw three. Mind you they were squabbling! The kitchen was well equiped & accommodation clean/modern. No mobile signal, but wifi was adequate. Thank you for having us.

Quiet and lovely

Jon and Diane were perfect hosts. The house was super well equipped, warm and very comfortable. It was the perfect location to explore the Highlands from. We left feeling like we had made new friends.

Relaxing, classy, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cottage!

Jon was so welcoming and some great treats were awaiting us on arrival!

The cottage itself is so well positioned. We visited Inverness, Loch Ness and even saw dolphins at Chanonry point.

The cottage has lovely facilities and all very modern and clean.

The nature visiting the back garden (including red squirrels, pheasant) was unexpected and delightful.

Thanks for a lovely week!
