About Lesley Gallagher
Hi, I'm Lesley Gallagher and with my husband Danny we now run what was our much loved family home, Forester's Lodge, as a self catering Highland hideaway. The Scottish Highlands, Loch Ness and Inverness are a fabulous part of the world. There is lots to do and the scenery around the Loch changes every day. We are sure you will love exploring the area. Bring your camera, your skis, your bike, your kayak, your wellies and a jumper and have some fun. Or if you'd rather stick to something a bit less wild take advantage of the great shopping and eating in the friendly local towns and villages. It's only 15 minutes to the nearest Tesco and only 20 minutes to the centre of Inverness where there is a shopping mall, along with many of the high street retailers including Debenhams, Marks & Spencer, TK Maxx and some great local shops and restaurants too!
Why Lesley Gallagher chose Inverness
We also call our house 'Monster Lodge' as it's so close to Loch Ness. Monster Lodge is a world away from the norm and holds magical times for our family for over a decade, my kids say they've seen Nessie - if you're lucky you may see her too! It is a fun place to be with fantastic views from the forest and lots of trails and walks to explore for all.
What makes this House unique
Forester's Lodge sits on its own in the forest at Farigaig, yet only only 200 metres from the side of the Loch Ness road to inverness. It's a magical place with many walks and views.

A lovely big property. Plenty of room for us all but maybe needs a deep clean. Things like stains on carpets and cushions. Looks a bit worn and dated in places, especially the bedrooms. Communication was acceptable.
Thank you for your stay and the four stars.
I'm so sorry you found anything at the Lodge less than expected. We will certainly have a look at all the carpets a cushions.
The house should have been spotless and we are genuinely surprised at your review.
A brilliant week in the Highlands
We had a brilliant stay at Forester's Lodge this August. The house itself is beautiful, very spacious with everything you might need and is set in a tranquil location. We enjoyed the variety of walks close to the house that often led to stunning views. The garden was a great space to relax in, as was the well-equipped game room. We would definitely recommend Forester's Lodge!
Many thanks for your review and we're delighted you enjoyed the house and your holiday.
Access to Loch Ness is easy from the house and there are many places where you can enjoy a walk along the edge of the water near the house. In addition the pebble beach at Dores is very popular locally for walking, kayaking and to visit the local pub which sits on the shore.
The beaches of the Moray Firth are all easily accessible.
Inverness Airport is approximately 25 miles from the house.
There is a bus service along South Loch Ness from Inverness to Foyers but it is infrequent and given the rural location you will best enjoy your trip if you have access to a car.
The nearest village is Foyers (2 1/2 miles), best known for its beautiful waterfall. It has a local shop, a cafe and some hotels. Eight miles along Loch Ness towards Inverness is Dores, which has the Dores Inn, where locals and tourists alike visit.
Inverness is 16 miles - here you will find a wide range of shops, restaurants, a theatre, sports facilities etc.
