About the property

Stunning Loch Ness cottage with its own private beach ! On the banks of Loch Ness this traditional stone built semi-detached foresters cottage has a real wow factor the moment you arrive. Beautifully restored two bedroomed cottage with panoramic views up and down the world famous Loch Ness. A secure fenced garden and your own private beach make this a hugely popular cottage. The Cottage is available all year round - including for Xmas and New Year. It does book up quickly, especially for summer, Xmas/New Year and school holidays, with such spectacular views, Loch Ness location and two private beaches - so don't leave it too long. (10% discount for returning customers outside of peak season). Free unlimited broadband internet access - just bring your laptop. For last minute bookings - reductions are available - just ask !

From the moment you arrive you will be amazed at the beauty and setting of this unique cottage. As it is on the shore of Loch Ness, you can look out for Nessie (the Loch Ness monster) at all times of the day and during the long bright summer evenings. The cottage has a lounge/conservatory from which you can sit and watch the ever-changing loch, sunsets, wildlife and mountains. Two comfortable, well-equipped bedrooms (one twin, one double) also with stunning loch views, ensure you will sleep well in the peace and quiet of the private countryside location.

The well-appointed kitchen allows you to enjoy preparing the rich variety of local produce available at local Farmers Markets and from local producers. Inverness city is only 16 miles away (25 minute drive) and you have ample car parking space at the cottage for any number of vehicles.

The wildlife will also amaze you with dozens of birds visiting the garden bird house, regular sightings of red and sika deer, pine martens, pheasants, osprey, woodpeckers, red squirrels, bats and at night you are guaranteed to hear the occasional owl.

With Freeview TV, home entertainment, board games, CDs and DVDs you are ensured of a fun time inside or out. Fishing is allowed from either of The Cottage's private beaches (there is a shingle and a rock beach), accessible down steps from the garden. Visitors have caught brown trout & salmon. Fort Augustus is 25 minutes away with its stunning locks and restaurants. The nearby village of Foyers (2 miles away) has a post office, general store and cafe. Free unlimited broadband access - just bring your laptop. The Cottage is available all year round. It quickly books up, especially for the summer months. One quote sums it up 'This comfortable cottage is my idea of heaven.

The most beautiful views of Loch Ness from every room, we will definitely be back !' You won't be disappointed.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife and a couple of friends booked a four night stay and we were blown away by the shear beauty of the cottages location, my heart is still there. The views are stunning and the cottage was very well presented, there has been lots of improvement from the pictures you see here, and the cottage is very worth the hire fee, it has absolutely everything you need for a good weeks stay, the kitchen is well equipped and had nice hot water, great shower and the windows were just fine, exactly what I would expect with a cottage on the shores of Loch Ness. It’s only half an hour to Inverness city centre so you have everything you need not too far away witch is a big bonus, there is even a 24 hour Tesco, perfect!. The surroundings are awesomely amazing, breathtakingly beautiful, stunning and idilic. I am definitely booking again and again and again. Turan is a pleasure to deal with and I find him truthful and honest, I thank you mr Ali. Every Scotsman I spoke to told me we had caught some unusually warm weather for so late in September and we were very lucky, we were eating our meals in the garden in tee shirts. The doggie loved it too. Again, a big thank you from us all.

We were central to all attractions that we wanted to see culloden moor , loch Ness experience and Inverness town centre . To add to our experience we had lots of snow which just made our stay more magical. Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful cottage xx

The cottage was in an amazing location,very clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the cottage. It is close to Inverness and accessible to many attractions in the area. The scenery right outside the window is beautiful and you may see wildlife, we saw many bird varieties and deer. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone staying in the highlands. The cottage was warm,clean and we felt at home right away

The only thing I would improve are the directions, it was a little challenging to find the first time

The Cottage is in the beautiful, and peaceful village of Inverfarigaig on South Loch Ness with stunning Loch Ness views and many woodland, mountain and loch side walks starting from your front door. The Cottage has its own private beach which is ideal for BBQs and breath-taking sunsets. Within minutes of The Cottage there are other lochs, mountains and forests to explore. The wildlife in the area will also amaze you with many bird species, deer, pine martens, osprey, woodpeckers, red squirrels, bats and at night you are guaranteed to hear the occasional owl. Nearby Loch Ruthven is an impressive bird reserve and dolphins are seen all year at Chanonry Point on the Black Isle (40 mins away). The Cottage is an ideal base for touring everything the Highlands have to offer.

Fishing is allowed from either of The Cottage's private beaches. Visitors regularly catch brown trout and occasionally salmon. Sunbathing is also possible on the shingle beach some weeks of the year ! Please note, the steps down to one of the beaches are a little steep and there is a hand rail to help. The beaches are not suitable for people with mobility problems.
