This lovely little studio cottage for two has been lovingly renovated and now provides a very good standard of holiday accommodation in a peaceful setting. Set at the top of a hill, just a few miles from the popular village of Drumnadrochit, Heather Barn is a super base for exploring the many attractions and amenities this part of the Northern Highlands has to offer. Drumnadrochit has a small selection of restaurants and bars, and Inverness, the Highland capital, is just 23 miles away where you will find an extensive range of shops, restaurants, theatres, galleries and swimming pools. A visit to the ruins of Urquhart Castle, a very popular visitor attraction, is highly recommended along with a boat trip on Loch Ness - good monster spotting area. There are many attractions of scenic and historical interest within easy reach including Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, Cawdor and Brodie castles, or take a trip along the Malt Whisky Trail, the only one of its kind in the world. Visit some of the beautifully scenic fishing villages of the Moray coastline, peppered with miles of unspoilt beaches, voted one of the world’s top 20 coastal destinations in 2017! Take a drive over to the west and you will find the beautiful Glen Affric and Glen Strathfarrar, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you can walk and hill climb or try some of the finest mountain bike trails in Scotland.
Further afield, take a trip to the beautiful Isle of Skye and on the way there you can stop and visit the popular Eilean Donan Castle. To the south, visit Fort William, the outdoor capital of the UK, where you can hike up Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain, or take the mountain gondola and ski on the slopes of Aonach Mòr. Some of the most spectacular scenery can be enjoyed from the top of the mountains and hills, a Munro bagger’s delight! Amongst the many activities available in the area are golf, with many courses within easy reach, mountain biking on numerous trails, hill climbing and walking with many forest trails on the doorstep, a variety of water sports on Loch Ness or on the Moray coastline and skiing and snowboarding in the Cairngorms or the Nevis range. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
