About julie adams
I am an Engineering Geologist from Glasgow, but have recently relocated to the area and work in Inverness. I've been coming to this area for years, being a keen hillwalker and have a love of the outdoors. I fell in love with the wee cottage as soon as i saw it. It has all the character you'd expect from one of the oldest houses in the village, but has been recently renovated to provide you with all the comforts you may need. Living locally, I know how convenient a location it is, with much to offer and can provide you with suggestions of what to do with the time you have here if needed. The cottage will provide you with a great base to explore the area and make your stay an enjoyable one.
julie adams purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why julie adams chose Inverness
The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the highlands, whatever your interests, with the following attractions being less than an hour away: - the city of Inverness - boat trips and Loch Ness Monster centre in nearby Drumnadrochit - dolphin spotting at Chanonry Point - walk, cycle, paddle or nordic ski! the Great Glen Way - skiing the Nevis Range (Cairngorm just over hour) - ample walking/cycling to suit all abilities and time-frames (including Glen Affric, Glen Shiel, Loch Mullardroch and Strathfarrar) - day trips to Fort William, Aviemore, Beaully, Ullapool, Findhorn, Culloden and the road to Skye
What makes this Cottage unique
My cottage is a well proportioned, comfortable, 2 bedroomed traditional build with a secluded garden, sitting out area, lockable storage, oil central heating and log burner. It's set in the picturesque village of East Lewiston, close to the shores of Loch Ness, within 5 minutes walk from pubs, an inn and local shop, riding school, 15 minutes walk from Urqhuart Castle and 20 minutes drive from the City of Inverness. Perfect for a couple or family on a budget seeking to get away from it all but with all the conveniences of a city being close by

A modern comfortable and well equipped cottage
From day one we were made more than welcome by Julie who treated us like family. The cottage was warm and comfortable with everything you could possibly require to ensure your holiday was what you wished for. As for the location of the cottage we found it was a great base for touring. We would certainly recommend this holiday cottage to all.
Julie, thanks for making our holiday unforgettable.
Aw you're welcome Michal. You were such a lovely couple and glad you had such a nice stay, my pleasure:-) Cannot believe the distances you travelled! Think you're up there with mileage if not top!
Hope to see you again,
Take care till then
What a find great location semidetached but you would think you are detached and in the country. Main aspects which appealed to us was very clean accommodation, location and warm. Would recommend this property well above average for the price they charge.
Thanks again to Julie and Rob
Thank you andrew, lovely to meet you both and glad you enjoyed your stay. youd be very welcome to come stay again, ideal guests and loved hearing about your cycle trips. Kindest
Lovely cottage in a lovely area
Had a lovely stay at Torran cottage. Cottage was perfect and very comfortable. Julie was very helpful.
Thanks Karen, really glad you had a lovely holiday. Hope you managed to get all you wanted to see and do. Weather was amazing! Can't guarantee the same heatwave if you come back again!!
Fantastic stay in a lovely cottage
We stayed in Torran cottage for a week. The owners have thought of everything to make our stay really special. Julie was very helpful if we had any questions but otherwise left us to enjoy the break. The surrounding area is stunning with immediate access to lovely walks. A perfect family break. Thanks very much.
We had the most wonderful holiday in this delightful cottage. It is cosy, comfortable, welcoming and well equipped. Julie gave us a very warm welcome and was very helpful. The cottage is well placed for visiting local attractions like fort Augustus , Urquhart Castle and Drumnadrochit, but we also visited Glen Affric, Plodda Falls, Culloden ,and the Highland Wildlife Park. We would highly recommend staying in Torran Cottage, it is a little gem!
Thank you both for spending your anniversary at the cottage, you did so much! And whilst it was a cold start to your visit, thankfully you brought a bit of the Bristol heat to Scotland with you! Lovely to meet you both, and so glad you had a nice stay. Julie
Lovely host and lovely cottage, with everything you could need!
What a fabulous cottage, complete with everything you could need! In a beautiful and convenient position on Loch Ness, too. Thank you for the kind gifts we discovered upon our arrival and for the gorgeous flowers. Communicating with you was an absolute pleasure from start to finish and I hope we meet again! Warmest regards & heartfelt thanks.
