“Get away from the rat race with this home away from home”
Reviewed 26 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

A lovely, comfortable "log cabin" set in a glorious setting surrounded by trees, yet there's a great view from the front of the property enabling you to see for miles. The verandah is a super place to sit and drink your morning cuppa. You get a great welcome from Janet & Alex - a "wee dram", flowers and shortbread, tourist information and much much more. Certainly over and above the call of duty! (Tap Alex up for a tale or two about the area and Nessie)

The beds are comfortable and every conceivable kitchen implement is to hand as are games, books, cd's, films, magazines and even a telescope! You won't get bored even if you don't go out to see the stunning scenery around the area. From dolphin watching in the moray Firth, to watching the salmon leaping at the Falls of Shin, this part of Scotland has it all.

Locally there are a few shops and cafes near the Falls of Foyers, but it's not far to Inverness which has plenty of supermarkets and also things to do for young and old alike.

We enjoyed touring and the steam train from Fort William to Mallaig (pre-booking essential) Skye is beautiful too. Dislikes - none whatsoever.

“A real break from a mad world”
Reviewed 7 April 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We had a wonderful time at Rowan Cottage. It was a comfy base both to rest and to explore South Loch Ness side - with much to see and some great places to eat. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The views from the cottage were superb - see panorama uploaded with this review. Our stay set us up for a much too busy autumn and winter. All in all, a great place to stay if you want to get away from it all.

“Wonderful place for dog owners.”
Reviewed 31 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Made very welcome. The cottage is in a lovely location and is very good value for money. We picked it because of taking dogs on holiday with us. We and the dogs were very comfortable and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Hopefully will stay again.
