Where You’ll Be
The farmhouse is midway between the city of Inverness and Loch Ness and, despite its remote location, is only 25 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the nearest train station.
Local pubs, restaurants and shops are a 5 minute drive away or can also be accessed by foot or bike from the towpath at the bottom of the garden which will take you into Inverness or up to Dochgarroch, the gateway to Loch Ness where cruises depart up the Loch several times a day.
A farm shop (Farm Ness) on the estate supplies locally grown and sourced vegetables and meat as well as other delicacies.
There are several famous golf courses within a ½ hour drive and, of course, the area abounds with historic castles, whisky distilleries and fabulous walks and cycle paths not only along the canal, but also on the Great Glen Way which runs behind the property. Canoeing, leisure cruises, horse-riding and many other amenities are also right on the doorstep. In addition, for the more retail minded, woollen mills, tweed and cashmere shops are all over the area.
A comprehensive house manual in the cottage details suggestions for day trips, visitor attractions, shops, restaurants etc as well as emergency numbers that you might need during your stay.
