Spend mornings watching red squirrels dart through the trees and nights cuddled up in blankets waiting for the elusive northern lights to set the sky alight from this secluded home-from-home.

This delightful cottage sleeps six and is in an enviable elevated position that allows guests to enjoy the most beautiful and tireless views of Loch Ness. The panoramas are uninterrupted whether you are lounging on the decking during a long summer’s evening or sitting indoors keeping warm by the wood burner.

This cottage has been refurbished and finished with holidaymakers in mind. First and foremost, the position of the house offers the peace you need to relax. The picture windows add light to the spacious, well-furnished and comfortable rooms.

Laid out over one level, the sitting room is a charming space featuring a gorgeous wood burner, perfect for those cooler evenings. It’s the ideal place to pop your feet up and watch a film or hang out with the ones you love. Each bedroom has its own shower room: two are en-suites and one is just off in the hallway. The kitchen is a cosy room, with crisp cream cabinets, a deep Belfast sink and a nearby island, so you have plenty of worktop space. There is also a dining table that comfortably seats six, so you can relive your days out over a hearty meal in the evenings.

The private garden is well cared for, large and steeped. There is a picnic bench and garden furniture on the veranda so you can dine with a spectacular backdrop of the loch.

The area around Inverness and Loch Ness have something for all ages, whether you're looking for a relaxing escape, one filled with adventure or to experience the enchanting wildlife. Embark on a circular walk starting at the Dores Inn (14 miles away), along the pebble beach and then following the woodland path along the shoreline to Aldourie and around Torr Point to return to the Dores Inn.

For souvenirs and a selection of excellent restaurants, head into Inverness. You will find well-known brands, independent boutiques and a famous Victorian market. The idyllic Old Town is full of book shops and galleries, and there are also a few quaint tea rooms to settle into for an afternoon of cake and fun. (7 miles away)

Visit the oldest building in Inverness that dates back to 1593. Abertarff House was restored in the sixties, and in 2018 the National Trust for Scotland opened its doors to the public so you can admire its projecting turnpike stairway. (8 miles away)

If you're looking to experience the great outdoors, there is nothing quite like embarking on the epic 80 miles Loch Ness 360° Trail which loops the entire circumference of Loch Ness. You can start and finish in the Highland capital of Inverness, or join the trail at any point of your choice so you can start right from the cottage.

This was our 2nd stay at Loch Ness view cottage. The cottage is spacious. Very clean and well equipped. The view is amazing. Very tranquil but the owner is available if needed. It is well placed to explore the beautiful Highlands . Plenty of leaflets in the cottage to suggest days out too. Would definitely love to visit again

We drove up the track to the cottage through bluebell woodland and found an amazing property. Very spacious and well equipped and attractively furnished. Outside was a balcony that gave a view onto the head of Loch Ness, a glimpse of the Caledonian Canal as boats passed into it and the most beautiful small lochan, solely inhabited by two swans. ThiRead mores was an outstanding view and endlessly enjoyable to see. And then of course Loch End is very well situated. If you must, there's a very convenient Tescos and various other places to shop and eat, but the scenery within easy reach is amazing, so very enjoyable trips and walks. some great lunches out too. Hoping very, very much to make a return visit next May ... Hide

The holiday was 5 star. The booking, communication, standard of accommodation was really high. We would definitely book through Cottages and Castles again.

We loved the Cairngorms and Isle of Skye best (very different to Oxfordshire!). The children loved it and even got to make a snowman and meet reindeer! The weather was gorgeous throughout our trip and we didn't have any rain, although we had been prepared for it! Nairn beach was a hit with the kids and the Baxter's factory/shop/restaurant was good. My husband did the distillery tour at Tomatin and had a great day. Inverness itself is a bit hit/miss but plenty to do around. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
