This semi-detached property makes an ideal base for exploring this beautifully scenic part of the northern Highlands, coupled with easy access to the east and west coasts. The Little Green Cottage has been furnished and equipped to a very good standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible. The popular village of Drumnadrochit is set on the shores of Loch Ness and at the head of Urquhart Bay. It enjoys a number of good restaurants and pubs, and is also the home to the Loch Ness Centre and the ruins of Urquhart Castle.
There are many attractions of scenic and historical interest within easy reach, including Culloden battlefield, Fort George and Cawdor and Brodie Castles.

Visit some of the beautifully scenic fishing villages and unspoilt beaches of the Moray coastline – voted one of the world’s top 20 coastal destinations! You can take a boat trip to hopefully catch sight of the famous bottlenose dolphins. Inverness, the vibrant Highland capital, is only 14 miles away, and here you will find a large variety of shops, fine restaurants, pubs, theatre, museums and galleries.

There are mountain bike tracks, with serveral literally on the doorstep, and walking in the many forest trails. Photographers will find a huge abundance of bird and wildlife on the doorstep; you will be spoilt for choice. For the less energetic, sit back and relax in The Little Green Cottage where happy memories of a lovely Highland holiday will be made and remembered. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

About the local area

Inverness, Capital of the Highlands lies at the north end of the Great Glen, where the River Ness flows into the Moray Firth. With its suspension bridges across the River Ness and old stone buildings, it is a pretty place which is well-known for its floral displays.

The River Ness provides a key focus within the city, and attractions like the castle, Inverness Cathedral and the Eden Court Theatre can all be found on its banks; together with some of the city's many shops and restaurants.

Follow the River Ness for long enough and you will end up by the shores of the best known loch in Scotland - Loch Ness. Thanks to its famous resident - Nessie, the friendly Loch Ness monster it has become one of the most popular areas for tourists to visit. Explore the visitors centre by the shore and learn the history of this legend. You might even spot this illusive creature for yourself as you stroll the area.

To the East of Inverness is Nairn, rated second in a list of top desirable destinations for 2010! But its not surprising because with its long, sandy, Blue Flag beaches and promenades it competes with some of the popular tourist beaches in the south of England. Its unique micro-climate also helps to ensure that it has more hours of sunshine and less rainfall than towns just 15 miles away.

Off shore The Moray Firth is home to one of only two colonies of dolphins in the UK and they are often spotted from viewpoints along Nairn's shore. The seafront also hosts an active harbour, with boat owners offering trips to see the resident bottle-nose dolphins or simply to view Nairn from a different angle.

Areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Culbin Forest and Culbin Sands Nature Reserve can be observed inland. Enjoy spotting many species of flora and fauna, as well as birds and migratory flocks. And for those who enjoy the invigorating sea air, there are magnificent views across the Moray Firth.
