Sleeps 6 – 3 x bedrooms 2 x bathrooms
Set in a large, fully fenced, screened garden with beautiful water views, a 2 minute walk through the gate will take you to the beautiful beach at Lochend at the top of Loch Ness. There is a soft seating and dining area on the little terrace immediately outside the house or if you prefer a dedicated fire pit/BBQ seating area in the second terrace by the wood burning hot tub. In addition to this, there is also a table tennis set up in the old open barn by the hot tub area.
As the road to the West (A82) runs along Loch Ness you may hear some traffic noise when you are outside. The property is totally screened from the road and is child and pet safe. We have also used special noise reducing fencing panels to alleviate any noise issues. All rooms face the water.
The cosy sitting room has a wood burning stove, books, games and TV with Freeview, Netflix, Amazon Prime apps etc. It also has beautiful views of Loch Abban the little Lochan which sits in front of the house and feeds into the main body of water.
The large kitchen is fully equipped with an integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher, induction hob, electric oven, washer dryer and every amenity you could wish for.
There is a separate dining area/ sun room leading off from the kitchen where you can sit and admire the views and play games, work or eat!.
There are 3 super comfortable bedrooms: The downstairs king size bedroom has an ensuite shower room. Upstairs are 2 large bedrooms – a king size and a twin. There is also a cosy family bathroom upstairs with a slipper tub.
By request we can also provide a cot and a high chair.
I have supplied a comprehensive house manual in which you will find suggestions for day trips, visitor attractions, shops, restaurants etc as well as emergency numbers that you might need during your stay.
Where You’ll Be
The house is an ideal base to explore the Highlands, set at the top of Loch Ness and yet only 6 miles from the vibrant City of Inverness. Despite its remote location it is only 25 minutes from the Airport and 15 minutes from the nearest train station. A 10 minute drive will take you into the city centre with all its restaurants, shops and live music venues. Local grocery shops and a farm shop (Farm Ness) are all between 5 – 10 minutes away and the starting point to cruise Loch Ness at Dochgarroch is under 3 miles away. There are many restaurants to choose from and there are beautiful walks directly from the cottage through the forest and up the hill. The Great Glen Way is directly behind the cottage and the North Coast 500 is also easily accessible. Golf courses, distilleries, leisure cruises, adventure sports are all a short distance and for the more retail minded, woollen mills, tweed and cashmere shops are all over the area.
