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.
We had a lovely stay at the cottage. The setting by the Loch is absolutely beautiful. The cottage itself is very warm with the central heating, it was very clean and well equipped. Turan was a great host who forewarned us that the washing machine would not be working for part of our stay. This was not an issue for us but it was nice to be told in advance. The one thing which would turn the cottage from great to perfect would be the addition of curtains to shut out the cold dark winter nights. We will certainly recommend the cottage to others and would stay again.
The owners of the property have made this cottage a delightful place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone seeking peace and quiet in a beautiful setting. The cottage overlooks the loch and is one of the best holidays I have ever had in Scotland.
Quiet little cottage close to the shore of Loch Ness. A small shop and café in Foyers, the next village along, plus nice walks to the Falls of Foyers, and in Farigaig Forest. Inverness is about 25 minutes drive away, Ben Nevis about an hour.
Kids and dog loved the beach, not so happy about the midges, but that's Scotland.
Well appointed kitchen so didn't need to bring sharp knives or caffetiere.
We have just returned from a mon-fri break at the cottage. The location and views of Loch Ness are simply stunning. The Cottage itself is very well equipped to cater for your stay. It really is like a home from home. The steps down to the pebbled beach were a little steep but safe. Our son and pup both had a little paddle in the Loch!
The garden is fully enclosed so ideal for pets. Communication with Turan was excellent. All our queries were answered promptly and our special requests were accommodated. All in all the Cottage was a fantastic place to spend some good old fashioned quality time with our teenage children and we hope to return one day.
This was an amazing holiday perfect location. The cottage was lovely and warm when we arrived. We visited the Black Isle and were lucky enough to see some dolphin's and seals. Foyer Falls is well worth a visit but is quite a climb back up. Our boys aged 5 & 9 loved the beach building dams with the stone and wood. It was also perfect for our dog who was the only one who took a dip in the Loch. I would recommend this cottage we loved it so much we have book one of the other cottages that Iain and Turan own for April before with left this one.
A very relaxing place to stay on the shores of Loch Ness, highly recommended for the peace and quiet. Cottage small but cosy with everything we needed.
Spent most of our time relaxing in the conservatory watching the wildlife. Looking forward to our next visit.
The Cottage is in the beautiful, and peaceful village of Inverfarigaig on South Loch Ness with stunning Loch Ness views and many woodland, mountain and loch side walks starting from your front door. The Cottage has its own private beach which is ideal for BBQs and breath-taking sunsets. Within minutes of The Cottage there are other lochs, mountains and forests to explore. The wildlife in the area will also amaze you with many bird species, deer, pine martens, osprey, woodpeckers, red squirrels, bats and at night you are guaranteed to hear the occasional owl. Nearby Loch Ruthven is an impressive bird reserve and dolphins are seen all year at Chanonry Point on the Black Isle (40 mins away). The Cottage is an ideal base for touring everything the Highlands have to offer.
Fishing is allowed from either of The Cottage's private beaches. Visitors regularly catch brown trout and occasionally salmon. Sunbathing is also possible on the shingle beach some weeks of the year ! Please note, the steps down to one of the beaches are a little steep and there is a hand rail to help.
