Upper Dunain

Sleeps 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms


Set in a large, fully fenced garden with direct access on to the hill and forest you will really feel that you have found a private Highland hideaway. There is a soft seating and dining area on the little terrace or if you prefer something more rustic, a sunken fire pit area with log seating where you can warm up on a chilly night and tell tall stories. Up a path set into your own private little hillside is the hot tub under its lit pagoda where you can relax and take a deep breath.

Your Accommodation

The cosy sitting room has a wood burning stove, books, games and TV with Freeview, Netflix, Amazon Prime etc. It also has beautiful views on both sides of the room and provides the perfect retreat when you want a change from the great outdoors.

Where You’ll Be

The house is an ideal base to explore the Highlands, set midway between Loch Ness and the vibrant City of Inverness. Despite its remote location it is only 25 minutes from the Airport and 10 minutes from the nearest train station. A 5 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 also about 5 minutes. 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.
