Property code: 82791

A rural property which is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, with plenty of attractions including Loch Ness and Fort William within a short drive. Great holiday home for families with dogs.

Set on the outskirts of Fort Augustus and within a couple of miles of Loch Ness, this property is ideally placed for exploring both the Highlands and the West Coast. Enjoy a boat trip or day cruise on the loch itself, and take a stroll along the Caledonian Canal with its many locks. The ruins of the historical Urquhart Castle in Drumnadrochit are also well worth a visit. The Great Glen Way runs from the north to the south of Loch Ness and is popular with cyclists and bikers alike. Fort William is just over thirty miles away, with Ben Nevis mountain range and the Jacobite Steam Train to name just two well-known attractions.

The bungalow entrance leads into a small utility area with a washing machine and a tumble dryer, which is convenient for leaving your muddy boots after a busy day of exploring. This leads through to a spacious kitchen with breakfast bar, electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The lounge/diner is also large in size, with seating for six guests around the table. The sofas are placed around a cosy wood burner and TV/DVD, making it a lovely spot to spend your evenings. There are two sliding patio doors that lead out to the garden from this room, where you also have a great view of the bird feeders that attract lots of wildlife, including woodpeckers and red squirrels. Both bedrooms have use of a shower room and WC. The master double bedroom is spacious with an en-suite with bath, shower and WC. From this bedroom, glass doors lead out to the garden. Another double room and a twin complete the accommodation.

The enclosed garden is mainly laid to lawn and stretches to over half an acre. There are small patio areas with garden furniture where you can enjoy a seat in the sunshine whilst you dine alfresco. There is ample parking on the gravel driveway for three cars.

Beautiful location, very peaceful and quiet. Garden was not fully enclosed as described - we were unable to close the front gate so our dog could not roam the garden without one of us always being there. Cottage was comfortable but some rooms a bit tired. Modern kitchen and bathrooms had everything we needed

Lovely bungalow in an isolated location. There are a couple of houses closely, but there is a huge dog friendly garden for this property. We would definitely stay again.

Super accommodation with newly refurbished bathrooms and kitchen. Very well equipped, very warm and welcoming. Super location well placed for exploring the Highlands on foot, cycle or car.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is more spacious than we expected it to be when looking at the photos online, but it was also really cosy. There are nice places nearby, within walking distance, that were good for the dogs. Also the garden is absolutely enormous. The neighbours sell things like eggs and jam outside their houses. The ownerRead more was very good at responding when we had questions. Hide

A great bungalow in a excellent position to explore the highlands. The bungalow content needs updating with cooker appliances not working, the kitchen floor is like walking on bubble wrap. With a little revamp and a more thorough clean this would be a great property.
