This charming wood-clad lodge is the perfect rural retreat for two in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Enjoy the best of both countryside living and easy access to the vibrant city of Inverness. Roam dramatic moorland, visit beautiful lochs and discover a land full of excitement and new experiences.

Light and airy with splashes of colour and thoughtful touches, this wonderfully cosy lodge, with underfloor heating, will have you feeling right at home as soon as you step in the door. The open-plan living space is centred around huge picture windows that frame the stunning countryside vistas beyond. Sit back and relax on the plush sofa next to the warming wood burner and take in the sights of the Scottish Highlands. As the sun sets, prepare a delicious meal in the sleek kitchen and dine together at the table with plush cushioned chairs strategically placed for dinner with a view. Take a relaxing soak in the contemporary bathroom before bed and get a good night’s sleep in the inviting bedroom with its comfortable double bed and stylish feature wallpaper.

Set in its own enclosed area, outside there is a patio with outdoor garden furniture – a great spot to enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening against a backdrop of lush green fields and rolling hills, with only the local livestock for company.

Beautiful countryside walks begin on your doorstep in this lovely rural location which pass through some of the country's most spectacular scenery. Just 9 miles to the north is the buzzing city of Inverness, where you can stroll beside the River Ness, sampling some of the city’s fantastic pubs and restaurants along the way.

Don't miss the Ness Islands in the centre of Inverness; these scenic, tree-filled islands are linked by bridges and are home to walking paths, wildlife and even a mini train ride. For history lovers, a ramble around the grounds of Inverness Castle or a visit to St Andrew's Cathedral will make for an interesting day out.

Holding more water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined, the infamous Loch Ness is 12.5 miles to the west. Try your hand at kayaking on the loch's tranquil waters or take a leisurely boat cruise keeping an eye out for you-know-who! You don't even have to travel to the coast for a day at the beach.

The village of Dores on the banks of Loch Ness is home to Loch Ness Beach, where you can spend a day on the water and then enjoy a BBQ on the shore, looking up at the evening stars from this idyllic location.

Mags and Kenton were lovely hosts, very welcoming and there if we needed them for anything. The property is in a beautiful area with amazing views. We had everything we needed for the week along with some great recommendations of places to go for walks, to visit, and to eat. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

A well presented property with fantastic views. It may be in a rural location but just 10 minutes away from Inverness. Very easy to access the Highlands if you want to use as a base. The owner was always on hand should you need any help with anything. I cant fault this property. We will hopefully be back.

Spotlessly clean property with exceptional views. Great location for days out. Best to follow owner's instructions to find the property as our sat nav took us to a neighbouring house.

The Bunker is an immaculately presented holiday home. It is spotlessly clean with everything you need. The large picture window has lovely views and is ideal for watching the local wildlife. The owner is helpful and friendly. It is in an ideal location for visiting Culloden battlefield plus Cawdor and Brodie castles.
