Accurate description but in need of TLC

  • 4 of 5

Cottage as described.....kitchen fairly new and clean and very well stocked....same with bathroom. Spacious lounge with wood burner and excellent supply of logs. Small double and small twin bedroom upstairs.

Garden was a lovely size,nearly doggie safe,need to watch if they are of a size to get under gate. Grass had not had first cut and was very very long when we arrived.....nice young lad turned up mid week to cut....did look amazing afterwards...although we were then sweeping up everyday as so much grass was around and being brought in the house. Although the essentials were all very clean other bits of the house were in need of a good scrub and paint.

Beautiful Cottage in lush surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, a well equipped kitchen, beautiful and welcoming! We saw lots of birds in the garden and filled the bird feeders, such a peaceful and lovely place. The beds were so comfortable and lots of storage space! Really could not fault the cottage and highly recommend it to anyone needing peace and quiet! Lots of lovely walks around the area too! Great warm welcome with some milk and shortbread waiting for us!

A wonderful cottage to return to after a day out Nessie hunting!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Woodside, it was very homely. The cottage was clean, well equipped and just perfect for our stay - I don't enjoy staying in fancy furnished accomodation, this was well maintained and modest, a home from home. We hope to return one day, thank you xxx

Woodside is in the village of Errogie in the unspoilt, sparsely populated South Loch Ness area with many woodland, mountain and loch side walks starting from the front door. Within a few minutes of Woodside there are many other lochs, mountains and forests to explore. The wildlife will also amaze you with much to be spotted in the woodland from the windows or decking at Woodside inclduing dozens of bird species, 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. Golden eagles have also been seen and the nearby Loch Ruthven is an impressive bird reserve. Dolphin watching is guaranteed from Chanonry Point on the Black Isle, a 40 minute drive away. Woodside is an ideal base for touring everything the Highlands have to offer.

Red squirrels and pine martens populate the nearby Farigaig forest which stretches along south Loch Ness, and covers several thousand acres.
