About the property

Stunning Loch Ness cottage with its own private beach ! On the banks of Loch Ness this traditional stone built semi-detached foresters cottage has a real wow factor the moment you arrive. Beautifully restored two bedroomed cottage with panoramic views up and down the world famous Loch Ness. A secure fenced garden and your own private beach make this a hugely popular cottage. The Cottage is available all year round - including for Xmas and New Year. It does book up quickly, especially for summer, Xmas/New Year and school holidays, with such spectacular views, Loch Ness location and two private beaches - so don't leave it too long. (10% discount for returning customers outside of peak season). Free unlimited broadband internet access - just bring your laptop. For last minute bookings - reductions are available - just ask !

From the moment you arrive you will be amazed at the beauty and setting of this unique cottage. As it is on the shore of Loch Ness, you can look out for Nessie (the Loch Ness monster) at all times of the day and during the long bright summer evenings. The cottage has a lounge/conservatory from which you can sit and watch the ever-changing loch, sunsets, wildlife and mountains. Two comfortable, well-equipped bedrooms (one twin, one double) also with stunning loch views, ensure you will sleep well in the peace and quiet of the private countryside location.

The well-appointed kitchen allows you to enjoy preparing the rich variety of local produce available at local Farmers Markets and from local producers. Inverness city is only 16 miles away (25 minute drive) and you have ample car parking space at the cottage for any number of vehicles.

The wildlife will also amaze you with dozens of birds visiting the garden bird house, regular sightings of red and sika deer, pine martens, pheasants, osprey, woodpeckers, red squirrels, bats and at night you are guaranteed to hear the occasional owl.

With Freeview TV, home entertainment, board games, CDs and DVDs you are ensured of a fun time inside or out. Fishing is allowed from either of The Cottage's private beaches (there is a shingle and a rock beach), accessible down steps from the garden. Visitors have caught brown trout & salmon. Fort Augustus is 25 minutes away with its stunning locks and restaurants. The nearby village of Foyers (2 miles away) has a post office, general store and cafe. Free unlimited broadband access - just bring your laptop. The Cottage is available all year round. It quickly books up, especially for the summer months. One quote sums it up 'This comfortable cottage is my idea of heaven.

The most beautiful views of Loch Ness from every room, we will definitely be back !' You won't be disappointed.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife and a couple of friends booked a four night stay and we were blown away by the shear beauty of the cottages location, my heart is still there. The views are stunning and the cottage was very well presented, there has been lots of improvement from the pictures you see here, and the cottage is very worth the hire fee, it has absolutely everything you need for a good weeks stay, the kitchen is well equipped and had nice hot water, great shower and the windows were just fine, exactly what I would expect with a cottage on the shores of Loch Ness. It’s only half an hour to Inverness city centre so you have everything you need not too far away witch is a big bonus, there is even a 24 hour Tesco, perfect!. The surroundings are awesomely amazing, breathtakingly beautiful, stunning and idilic. I am definitely booking again and again and again. Turan is a pleasure to deal with and I find him truthful and honest, I thank you mr Ali. Every Scotsman I spoke to told me we had caught some unusually warm weather for so late in September and we were very lucky, we were eating our meals in the garden in tee shirts. The doggie loved it too. Again, a big thank you from us all.

Cosy and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Cottage ... what a treat to sit and watch all the birds flitting in and out of the garden, even a red squirrel came to say hello twice! Quality family time with meals around the table and the hilarity of fishing for Nessie. The beach areas are wonderful to explore with stunning views of Loch Ness - an absolute gem of a place. We particularly loved exploring Farigaig Forest just a stone's throw away from the cottage. We really struck gold for our first Highland Adventure and would love to come back again. Thank you for everything ... the cottage was so homely and with everything we needed. The Bruzon Family x

Owner's Response: Hi Levente, We're glad you found the cottage nice and quiet and thanks for rating us with 4 stars. You do not explain what you felt was "not as stated in the photos". I took all the photos myself and the cottage is exactly like the photos. We are honest in our listing. I'm sorry you felt the windows could be cleaner - we have the windows cleaned every month. It's been a windy few weeks on the waterfront at Loch Ness and then we do get a little bit of sand and dust on the windows. The windows are due to be done again next week (but I feel it is an exaggeration to say you "could not see through the windows"). I do not understand the word "dumpy" about the shower, but you are right if you mean the shower needs upgrading. It is clean and safe but a new shower cubicle is being fitted on Monday 19th June 2017 and I'm sorry you were not able to benefit from that improvement. We do try our best to have the highest standards and are sorry if the windows and shower disappointed you. The Airbnb guests who came in the day you left and stayed for 3 days also gave us a review - with 5 stars - they said "Great location with great views! House was clean with all the items one might need in a self service cottage." We work hard to please everyone and hope you had a nice week in this stunning location and cottage anyway. Thanks for your visit and best wishes - Turan
