Description

Four Winds is a very cosy, semi-detached, single-storey bungalow, situated in the friendly and vibrant village of Drumnadrochit, on the shores of Loch Ness. Extremely well-equipped, this property is perfect for couples, friends or small families wishing to explore this fabulous area. Families with young children will also find a travel cot, highchair and baby bath at the property. For cyclists, there is a bike store with space for four bikes. Drumnadrochit has an array of amenities with several good places to eat, drink and shop. The famous ruins of Urquhart Castle are within easy walking distance, as is the Loch Ness Monster Exhibition. For outdoor enthusiasts, Glen Affric, Glen Urqhuart and The Great Glen Way are all close by and are popular areas with walkers, cyclists and kayakers.
Head for the Moray coastline to find unspoilt sandy beaches and a chance to spot the abundant wildlife. Take a boat trip to spot the dolphins, or visit the Spey Bay Dolphin Centre. Culloden Battlefield, Fort George and the Clava Cairns are all close by, or for the whisky lovers, the Strathspey whisky trail is a must. Take in the magnificent scenery with a drive along the North Coast 500, tour the beautiful Isle of Skye, or explore the Cairngorms National Park with a chance to spot a golden eagle or the elusive osprey. Heading south, Loch Ness joins the Caledonian Canal at Fort Augustus and slightly further afield you will find Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain which towers above Fort William. Inverness, the Highland capital, is a lovely city to explore, and is only 15 miles away from Drumnadrochit, and can be reached easily by bus or car. Shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant 200 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.
