Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could possibly need here. We were lucky to have fantastic weather and found the cottage in ideal location to visit many places. Glen Affric nearby has loads to offer including stunning scenery and waterfalls. Local pub serves good home cooked meals. Everyday we were visited at the cottage by the local Pine Marten who lives jam sandwiches. Highly recommended for a stay.

Lovely secluded setting

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very comfortable in a beautiful wuiet setting. We particularly enjoyed watching the birds atthe bird table.

The only thing I would change is a handrail to get out the bath. It would make life easier.

Lovely relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately only stayed for weekend due to illness but overall was pleased with my choice, although in my opinion it was overpriced but worth it for the relaxing atmosphere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we are really pleased you were able to relax at the cottage but very sorry to hear you're holiday was cut short due to illness, we hope everyone is well now. We were delighted to see the 5 stars you awarded and you were pleased with you're choice. The full nightly cost of you're stay in the cottage was £79.00 per night (this also included the Owners Direct Service Fee ) we really think this is an extremely competitive price for the location and especially for the standards inside the cottage . Once again, thank you for you're comments, hope to see you again in the future. Regards, Andrew and Catherine

Insgesamt wirklich toll

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus liegt ziemlich abseits, aber dafür im Grünen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Einrichtung ist sehr liebevoll und sauber. Um 5 Sterne zu geben hätte ich mir WLAN gewünscht und einen Trockner. Bei Regen hat man keine Möglichkeit, die Wäsche aufzuhängen. Das Cottage würde ich auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen!

The Scottish Highlands region,

The Scottish Highlands has something for everyone, it is a wonderful holiday destination, you're sure to return again and again once you've been . There is so much to offer, if you're wanting an action packed adventure holiday you can go :-

Pony trekking,






Canoeing, the list is endless , or if you're wanting a relaxing peaceful holiday you can visit the remote beautiful beaches which cover the whole of the Highlands, there's spectacular mountains, waterfalls, Lochs and magnificent scenery. There are castles to explore, museums to visit and boat trips can be taken on the famous Loch Ness. Inverness is a must, this vibrant city is full of history and culture, there are many restaurants, cafe's and shops to choose from and the castle ( which is now the court house ) over looks the River Ness.


Whatever you decide to do you can be sure you'll find plenty to enjoy in the Highlands.There are so many different things to do and places to visit around the cottage you'll be spoilt for choice. Walking, from high mountains to low land Glens you'll be sure to find a route to please everyone, you can take a different walk everyday and still be amazed by the scenery and wildlife you encounter on your travels. There's salmon fishing locally and golf at Aigas, also you can fish the Beauly river for salmon and trout, this is 20 minutes away, Beauly is a beautiful village, well worth a visit.

4 miles from the cottage you can visit Cannich/Glen Affric/Glen Strathfarrar, these places are well known for their beautiful scenery, mountains, forests, rivers and waterfalls, Plodda falls near Glen Affric is the highest and most spectacular waterfall in the area, over 40 metres high.

Drumnadrochit is 9 miles away, a lovely village on the shores of Loch Ness, here we have the Loch Ness visitor centre and for the smaller one's- Nessieland where you can learn all about Loch Ness and the' monster'. Urquhart castle is a popular visitor attraction, this was once one of Scotlands largest castles, it lies on the west shore of Loch Ness with splendid views over the Loch.

Inverness is 20 minutes from Drumnadrochit, along the shores of Loch Ness, so much to do and see here, historic buildings ,Inverness castle, this overlooks one of the most beautiful riverside settings in Britain. You can walk around Ness Islands where you can watch anglers casting long lines in River Ness in the hope of catching a salmon, or you can stroll around the shops and take in the lovely scenery whilst relaxing watching the world pass by having a coffee in one of the many cafe's on offer .
