Here are just some of the things you can see and do.
Very conveniently situated for visiting the south shore of Loch Ness which is missed by many tourists.
From Farr, be sure to take the scenic Stratherrick road and enjoy the views from Suidhe Chuimen.
This is the highest point on what was the old military road from Fort Augustus to Fort George.
Waterfall at Foyers - immortalised by Scotland's favourite poet Robert Burns. Forest walks at Inverfarigaig and Iron Age Dun Dearduil (magnificent views over Loch Ness)
Beach at Dores. Quiet roads ideal for cycling. Bridge built by General Wade at Whitebridge. Numerous little lochs - ideal for a picnic! Views of the Monadhliath Mountains
At the end of the loch, Fort Augustus is well known for its floral displays during the summer and you can also see the locks of the Caledonian Canal. The most frequented attractions of Loch Ness are of course Urquhart Castle and the 'Nessie' centres at Drumnadrochit. Why not take a boat trip to see if you can spot the monster?! The detour into beautiful Glen Affric is well worth it - the spectacular scenery is ideal hiking country and it's only 40 minutes drive from the cottages.
The local area has an abundance of wildlife (red squirrel, pine martin, Scottish wild cat and osprey), and for birdwatching there are 2 RSPB reserves close by at Loch Ruthven and Loch Garten. From Inverness & the Black Isle you can take a cruise out to sea and look for dolphins.
Centuries of it! From the prehistoric cairns at Clava and the carved Pictish standing stones. To the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite Rebellion at Culloden Battlefield and Fort George. Not to mention the many romantic castles in the Highlands such as legendary Cawdor, fairytale Brodie and picturesque Eilean Donan.
There are numerous golf courses and places to fish. You can take a walk along a forest trail, go cycling or climb a mountain. Go horse riding for a day by Loch Ness. You are spoilt for choice!
In winter, the Cairngorm mountain range is open for skiing and mountaineering. The main centre, Aviemore, is just a 30-minute drive from the cottages. The slopes of the Lecht and the Nevis Range are also both easily accessible on a day trip.
The Highland capital (just 20 minutes from the cottages) has excellent facilities including shops, restaurants, theatre, museum, cinema, pubs & clubs, swimming pool, golf courses. It often hosts festivals and traditional music concerts.
Within 90 minutes you can be looking at the famous Isle of Skye and Cuillin mountains. Or head for the north-west and explore the delightful coastal road from Ullapool to Gairloch. Alternatively take the Whisky Trail or explore the fishing villages along the east coast.
Open all year.
Only 20 minutes from Inverness & from Loch Ness.
