This cosy cottage for two is the perfect base from which to explore the Highlands and its many attractions.
A warm Highlands welcome awaits you at this lovely little detached cottage for two, which is situated next to the owners’ home and has been lovingly created to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible. Nestling just metres from the river, and only a mile from the popular village of Drumnadrochit, a holiday in Heron’s Rest Cottage can be as relaxing or action packed as you wish. The name Herons Rest relates to the resident Heron which can regularly be seen in the river, just a short stroll from the cottage where there is also a seating area to admire the view and catch a glimpse of the wildlife. Drumnadrochit is set on the shores of Loch Ness and at the head of Urquhart Bay, and has a good selection of shops and places to eat. The village also boasts to be the home of the official Loch Ness Monster Exhibition, or you can explore the ruins of historic Urquhart Castle.
There are many attractions of scenic and historical interest within easy reach, including Culloden Battlefield, Fort George and Cawdor and Brodie castles, or take a trip along the Malt Whisky Trail – the only one of its kind in the world! Visit some beautifully scenic fishing villages of the Moray coastline, voted one of the world’s top 20 coastal destinations. Inverness, the Highland Capital, is only 14 miles away where you will find a large variety of shops, fine restaurants, pubs, a theatre, museums and galleries.
Amongst the many activities available locally are boats trips, water sports and sea fishing along the Moray coastline or on Loch Ness, good monster spotting area! The area is a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast, with mountain biking, walking along the many forest trails, kayaking on the rivers and lochs, and photography, with a huge abundance of bird and wildlife on the doorstep.
