Perched high above the magical Loch Ness, this superb country cottage basks in the natural beauty of its sprawling surrounds and offers the most wonderful retreat for the wild-at-heart.
Wake up to spectacular views of Loch Ness and feel moved by the scenes that have provided the backdrop to stories of a mythical sea creature. This stunning stone cottage also overlooks the historic Urquhart Castle from its elevated and secluded position on 3 acres of land. This popular property has been used as a filming location for documentaries, appeared in design magazines and the area it's set on is under archaeological investigation by Historic Environment Scotland in Edinburgh. Experience the magic of Scotland from a cottage that is nothing short of extraordinary.
Dressed in tartan and warm tones, this home is the wholesome haven you need after a day of exploring. The cottage contains some unique pieces of handmade furniture and décor: stag antler lamps, highland cow horns, railway carriage shelves, and old irons, to name a few.
Downstairs is an open-plan kitchen/diner with a beautiful oak floor, exposed ceiling beams and a classic wood burner. The kitchen is equipped with a Rangemaster oven with induction hob, a deep Belfast sink and all the appliances you should need for whipping up both simple and fancy dinners. Dine at the table while the fire crackles and fills the room with a soft glow. The lounge area is the definition of cosy with comfortable couches to curl up on, an assortment of rare books, old-school board games and a brilliant collection of DVDs to watch on the TV.
Upstairs, both bedrooms offer unforgettable views that will wake you up quicker than a cup of coffee; at night, the castle is lit up, and the majestic scene fills the window. Each of the bedrooms has been sympathetically decorated retaining the traditional pointed stone walls as a feature while again exposing the wooden ceiling beams while the tartan curtains and lavish check-patterned bedding pay homage to the cottage’s Highland heritage.
The property’s grounds are scattered with unique gems like Avery weights, Highland scythes and lobster creels as well as several viewing points to take in the panoramic view. Host a BBQ and dine out on the garden furniture as roe deer and pheasants go about their day around you.
Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
