About the property

ivy and willow cottages

The River Lochy is referred to as the Queen of the North, set in the Great Glen, with views of Ben Nevis to the South, and the Glen to the North. The Caledonian Canal runs along the river, so tall sailing ships will pass silently along the other side of the valley from the house. Ivy Cottage is situated at the top of the river on Beat One, where you will see anglers fly fishing for salmon. You can access some of the best walking in the UK from Ivy, either on foot, or by taking a short 10 minute drive to Ben Nevis and the Nevis range. Take the A830 and within an hour you are on some of the finest beaches in Europe, with sand brought from the Caribbean on the prevailing tides. If it is the more extreme outdoor activities that interest you, Ivy Cottage welcomes mountain bikers that want to take on the extremes of the Nevis range, and the cottage is set up to allow you and your bikes to be clean and warm at the end of the day. What ever your reason for visiting the Highlands, Ivy cottage provides a warm welcome, and the set up is designed to make your stay warm and comfortable. In 2014 new Ground source heat pumps were installed, and a new extension added providing an underfloor heated walk in drying room for all outdoor clothing. Ivy cottage is set in 110 acres of its own land, with numerous bothy's and ruins for the kids to explore. The drive is a no-though road so the only traffic you might come across are anglers coming to and form the river each day. This magical retreat is set up for those engaging with the outdoors, and whilst pets are welcome they are requested to be kept in the drying room, where the underfloor heating will keep them comfortable and warm.

Great cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this cottage for a week in August 2016. It was perfect for us, plenty of space for us as a family of 4 with 1 dog. Lovely garden space and it was in an ideal location. You do need a car but there is so much to do within an hour's drive of the cottage. Very rural and peaceful location and the cottage has everything you could need.

We loved in here and will definitely return as soon as we can!
