This delightful cottage has been equipped and furnished to ensure as peaceful and relaxing holiday as possible. The semi-detached, former steading building enjoys a peaceful rural setting yet is situated only a few minutes’ drive from the Highland capital of Inverness. Jenny’s Cottage offers ideal accommodation for those looking for a relaxing escape, and provides the opportunity to enjoy both countryside and to explore the nearby towns. With its sheltered courtyard, this cottage offers a living/dining room, perfect for cosy nights in beside the electric wood burner, kitchen and two bedrooms.
The cottage makes a super base for exploring the many attractions and amenities this beautiful part of northern Scotland has to offer.

Amongst the many historic sites of this area is the famous Culloden Battlefield, Fort George and Brodie and Cawdor castles. You can also take a trip along the Moray Malt Whisky Trail to sample some of the area’s finest whiskies, or why not visit the legendary Loch Ness, located just over half an hour’s drive away?
The area is super for a range of activities including water sports, fishing and sea trips. To the north you can take a day trip to the stunning Orkney Islands, well worth the effort. Just a short drive south will take you in to the Cairngorms National Park, where you can have a fun-filled family day at the Landmark Forest Adventure Park in Carrbridge. There are so many activities available in this area including skiing and snowboarding, water sports and fishing, climbing and hillwalking in the majestic Cairngorm Mountains, and mountain biking and golf to name just a few. Head west for the day to experience the scenic beauty of the Isle of Skye and the west coast. Beach 16½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 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.
