Riverside Cottages by Loch Ness give their location away, they’re beside the River Nairn and Loch Ness is nearby. The Loch in the Great Glen is only a short drive away, and what a drive it is. To reach Loch Ness you can go a variety of ways, but all of them are fascinating and attractive. The way via Loch Ruthven is particularly special and stopping at the Ruthven RSPB spot is definitely a recommendation. Also the route to Fort Augustus is a highlight because at Loch Tarff the iconic Local Hero shot some scenes.
As well as being an excellent place from which to explore Loch Ness, Primrose Cottage and the other cottages make an excellent base for adventures further afield. Being centrally located in the Highlands and only 20 minutes from Inverness means there are loads of roads for you to choose from to go off in any direction to explore different parts of this beautiful area. The NC500 is close as it starts and finishes in Inverness, so you can be heading north exploring in no time. Make sure you visit the Black Isle just north of Inverness. To the east you have the Moray Firth coastal route which will lead you to places likes Culbin Forest, the Findhorn River and Bay, and many characterful fishing villages. To the south you have mountains: the Monadhliath Mountains are your local range and your perfectly located at the Riverside Cottages by Loch Ness to explore these. A bit further south, but still only thirty minutes away, you have the Cairngorms National Park with tens of Munros to climb and ski stations for winter enthusiasts. And out west beyond Fort Augustus, Fort William beckons and more importantly so do Ben Nevis and Glencoe.
We could go on and on about how brilliant these cottages are, but there’s not enough space. Don’t hesitate, book now and be forever glad that you did so. Beach 23 miles. Pub and restaurant 11 miles.

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.
