Riverview is a genuine Highland Cottage, traditionally built around 1910 with solid two foot thick walls. The cottage is detached and arranged on one level with easy access throughout.
Set in the quiet location of Strathnacro, just outside the small village of Balnain, RiverView is less than 3 miles from the popular tourist centre of Drumnadrochit and the famous Loch Ness. A further 20 minutes away, a beautiful drive along the shores of Loch Ness, is the vibrant Highland Capital of Inverness.
Whether you're looking for a quiet retreat with deserted country walks and abandoned beaches, or action packed climbing, mountain and quad biking, horse riding or sailing - RiverView Cottage will be your perfect base.
Nearby Inverness has excellent long distance transport links, from which RiverView Cottage can be reached via public transport.
Acquired five years ago and run by a local trust for the benefit of two Inverness school boys, Riverview has been operated as a holiday let for almost twenty years.
Riverview cottage will comfortably accommodate four people in two bedrooms.
The kitchen, lounge and master bedroom are all dual aspect rooms, making the cottage a cosy but light and airy place to be.
The lounge has a feature fireplace with the thick walls retaining heat in the winter but keeping it cool in the summer.
The kitchen has been recently refitted with modern wall and base units and is well equipped while also providing room for dining.
You will find one double bedroom and one twin bedroom along with a shower room fitted with the usual electric shower, toilet, sink and shaver points.
Outside you have a private garden ground to the rear as well as side and front garden with established borders, trees and shrubs. There is a private drive with parking space enough for three or four cars. There is drive in drive out access, so no awkward reversing and turning.
Riverview cottage also benefits from it's own small area of woodland leading to the banks of the river Enrick.
The cottage is run on the simple premise of keeping life easy and honest.
There are no specific disabled modifications and no wheelchair access. But RiverView is all on one level with two small steps at the entrance and a very small step between lounge and entrance hall. We have though recently added grab handles at the front door and in the shower, as these will assist our more ‘senior’ guests.
