Discover Scotland''s most famous legend with a stay here in Inverness and enjoy walks and activities around the vast Loch Ness. The delightful one-bedroom cottage is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway.

For couples seeking a tranquil retreat from the outside world, this one-bedroom apartment is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Forming part of a larger property, this self-contained flat is situated on the private Farr Estate, where you can enjoy woodland walks through the grounds, stroll to private Farr Loch for a romantic picnic on the banks or even hire a rowboat to explore the gentle waters.

Your light and airy apartment has a comfortable open-plan living space, ideal for relaxing nights together. Large windows look out onto the estate grounds and across to the distant mountains. Wake up in the morning and watch the sun playing across the glorious countryside on view from the stunning circular bedroom window.

Step through the apartment’s private entrance and into the hall where you will find the handy cloakroom to leave walking boots and outdoor clothing. The large and well-appointed open-plan living space is flooded with natural light from the large windows and colourful artwork adorns the walls. Prepare a meal of locally sourced ingredients in the fully fitted kitchen to share at the dining table or plan your day over a coffee at the breakfast bar. In the evening, snuggle up on the cosy sofa and watch the sun set across the landscape.

When it’s time to retire, head upstairs to the generous king-size bedroom where you can cuddle up under the snug duvet and gaze out towards Loch Farr through the feature circular window. Indulge in a leisurely soak in the en-suite bathroom.

Outside, relax in the enclosed garden with an early evening glass of wine. There is private parking at the property.

Had a wonderful week here. Ideal surroundings just to chill out and relax. Loch Nest itself was all we could ask for and more. Spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean

When we arrived at Loch Nest we couldn't believe our eyes. It is a stunning building in a superb setting and when we went inside everything was perfect. Even on a rainy day you could happily sit and watch the wildlife, and when the sun came out take a short walk to the loch.

The property was very nice and secluded, also was meant to be peaceful and to most of the time it was. Finding the property was ok, key access very good heating on ready for us. We had issues with the TVs 3 remotes confusing following the instructions left did not work pictures on all itv channels kept freezing, we did speak to the lady house keepeRead morer the next day who came across that because we were the only people that had raised the issue that it was us in the wrong and she would try to get round to look at it, note left saying sorted but no different we did not bother her again as seemed a burden we just got by. No can opener. The cottage is attached to the main house and we were expecting to have a very quit Xmas recouping from a car accident, we were disturbed a number of times by noisy children in the mornings and evenings. The add stated for two and a double bed, it was two single beds, we pushed them together but first night they moved apart to we kept them as two singles Overall a very nice place we have been to the same area for last three years don't let my comments put you of but we would not re book but it was a nice cottage and area Hide

We really enjoyed our stay at Loch Nest. It's such a large and well equipped holiday house for having only one bedroom. I'd definitely recommend it! The beer and shortbread were excellent. The estate is quiet and peaceful with lots of great walks right from the door. We really appreciated the generous kitchen space for cooking and the choice of spaRead moreces for playing tabletop games. The underfloor heating was also greatly appreciated for cosy nights. Hide

Loch Nest is a perfect escape to the country. Super clean with well stocked kitchen, it has wonderful character with a great selection of books and even puzzles - perfect for lazing away an afternoon if the weather is inclement. The estate boasts great walks, a walled garden, and we stumbled on Loch Farr which was gorgeous. Underfloor heating made Read morethe temperature comfortable and cozy, even though it was snowing most of our visit! Especially enjoyed the superb cheese shop, The Cheese Pantry at Connage, with encyclopedic array of cheeses including several of their own and the Cawdor Tavern. Can't recommend Loch Nest highly enough! 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.
