A beautiful, spacious property which has been maintained to an extremely high level. 10 people stayed during our week in April/May with more than ample room for all. Facilities are to a high level with a well appointed kitchen. Previous reports have mentioned problems with the light switches, we mastered these with a little patience.
The whole Loch Ness/Inverness area is easily accessible from the house.
Thanks to the housekeeper, Lorna, who was very helpful prior to our stay.
What an amazing place to spend a weekend!! As a party of 11 adults, 2 bairns and 3 dogs we were very well accomodated for with room for more!! We were blown away by the beauty of the building and the scenery. There was lots of space for everyone to potter around and do their own thing whilst still spending quality time together. Despite going in a month where snow was forecast, we ended up experiencing a mini heat wave throughout our vacation which just added to the magic of it all. There was nothing better than chilling in the garden, the upstairs sofa and balcony just admiring the views. Added bonus: leaving the blinds up whilst falling asleep was great as you could star gaze from the comfort of a cosy bed!
We all highly recommend this place for a little family get together and we are already planning our next visit!
Absolutely could not fault this place. Amazing views and a great house to stay in. The company you are with make the weekend but staying in a place like this is the icing on top.
We are a party of 11 that holiday each year in different parts of the UK to experience the best locations in the UK, this one was our 10th. This is the best well laid house to date, bedrooms great,Kitchen facilities great, snooker table great, snug perfect for those that used it. We had a great time in this house and what a setting!! Loch Ness we enjoyed immensely, easy drive to the Cairngorms,Inverness and many sight-seeing expeditions. Not one grumble all week from any of my party and all say they want to return, we will soon. This one for us was ten / ten.
11 of us stayed in this house for a week from 30th December. We ranged in age from 22 to 54, and could not have asked for a more ideal house. Plenty of space , and in idyllic surroundings. The house itself was very warm, in fact too warm for some of us ladies of a 'certain' age!! (although our friends from Singapore, who were staying loved this!) It felt wrong to have the windows open, but certainly needed it when we were all in the Kitchen and dinning room, which for us, was the hub. Loch views are from the front bedrooms, the balcony and also from the Dinning room. There are plenty opportunities for photographs of spectacular scenery in and around Foyers as well as walks. The Craigdarroch Inn was a hit with the men (particularly a pint of Happy Chappy) and the Dores Inn was a welcome break from cooking. If you have a dog, beware that the garden is not fully enclosed, there is no gate, although there is a fence around most of the property. Sensor lightening would have been nice for the patio area. The main lightening in the house is a challenge, but the owners do recognise this in their welcome book. You are very central to lots of fab places to visit, we spent time visiting Fort Augustus, Nairn, Drumnadrochit, and Urquhart Castle. All in all a very relaxed time was had by us and we would all recommend a stay here.
Our last visit to Loch Ness was nearly 10 years ago and we were so looking forward to returning. The house is simply stunning,beautifully decorated,spacious but warm and cosy too.Lovely views of the loch from the front upstairs bedrooms. And i would like to point out that Lorna the housekeeper went above and beyond to help out when our flight was delayed meaning a late arrival. My husband and i have just spent the weekend here and our grown up kids arrive tomorrow and i am so excited to see their reaction
One of the best rentals we have ever stayed in
We were a family group of 8 adults, 1 toddler and a dog. This house has loads of space, the bedrooms are all of a great size and 4 of the 6 have ensuite facilities. It was lovely and clean when we arrived and there were some tasty scones provided for us. The snooker table provided much entertainment and was in great condition.
The area of Foyers was very nice and we liked the fact that there was a shop within walking distance (1.5mls away). The Falls of Foyers are worth a look and we also hired kayaks at lower Foyers to take out on the Loch. Fort Augustus is a lovely village too and we drove round to Urqhart Castle which was great.
Going out for dinner on our last night we chose the Dores Inn which has a lovely atmosphere and great food, I would recommend the venison. It is busy, so maybe not the quickest service, but well worth the wait.
