Description

Rowan Cottage is tucked away in the village of Drumnadrochit, right on the banks of Loch Ness, with the owner living adjacent, and Urquhart Castle just a stroll away. This extremely comfortable, semi-detached holiday home is ideal for a couple keen to explore this magical part of the Highlands. Further afield lies Fort William and Skye, as well as Inverness and the Moray Firth coastline. It’s simply perfectly located.
Upon arrival at the cottage you’ll appreciate the quiet, tucked away location with a peaceful and sheltered patio area to enjoy.
Entering the property, there’s a spacious hallway. After placing your coats and boots in the hallway, the large, open plan living space awaits. The room has been finished to a very high specification, with an outstanding, contemporary kitchen and really comfortable electric reclining armchairs to enjoy the large TV, or simply settle down to a selection of books to read during your stay.
Upstairs there’s a small landing which leads into the magnificent master super kingsize bedroom with en-suite and balcony. The room has a real wow factor, and not only because there’s a chocolate on your pillow and some local whisky in a decanter waiting for you! The bed is the centrepiece, but there’s also a comfortable armchair, another TV, an excellent en-suite shower room and doors opening out onto a private balcony, which then spills out onto the raised garden. The garden vista has only fields and Scottish pine forest beyond.
Rowan Cottage is a joy of a holiday home, and one that’s completed by its lovely owners who are always willing to help you get the most out of your stay in the Highlands. Shop ½ mile, 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.
