About julie adams

I am an Engineering Geologist from Glasgow, but have recently relocated to the area and work in Inverness. I've been coming to this area for years, being a keen hillwalker and have a love of the outdoors. I fell in love with the wee cottage as soon as i saw it. It has all the character you'd expect from one of the oldest houses in the village, but has been recently renovated to provide you with all the comforts you may need. Living locally, I know how convenient a location it is, with much to offer and can provide you with suggestions of what to do with the time you have here if needed. The cottage will provide you with a great base to explore the area and make your stay an enjoyable one.

Why julie adams chose Inverness, Loch Ness & Nairn

The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the highlands, whatever your interests, with the following attractions being less than an hour away:

- the city of Inverness

- boat trips and Loch Ness Monster centre in nearby Drumnadrochit

- dolphin spotting at Chanonry Point

- walk, cycle, paddle or nordic ski! the Great Glen Way

- skiing the Nevis Range (Cairngorm just over hour)

- ample walking/cycling to suit all abilities and time-frames (including Glen Affric, Glen Shiel, Loch Mullardroch and Strathfarrar)

- day trips to Fort William, Aviemore, Beaully, Ullapool, Findhorn, Culloden and the road to Skye

What makes this cottage unique

My cottage is a well proportioned, comfortable, 2 bedroomed traditional build with a secluded garden, sitting out area, lockable storage, oil central heating and log burner. It's set in the picturesque village of East Lewiston, close to the shores of Loch Ness, within 5 minutes walk from pubs, an inn and local shop, riding school, 15 minutes walk from Urqhuart Castle and 20 minutes drive from the City of Inverness. Perfect for a couple or family on a budget seeking to get away from it all but with all the conveniences of a city being close by
