Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Please note that the nightly rate shown is for the first two nights only. Each additional night is just £32 (off peak). Please ask for a quote if your stay is between 3 nights and 6 nights as TripAdvisor systems don't cope well with our pricing policy. The listed weekly and monthly rates are accurate though.

Riverview is a genuine Highland Cottage, traditionally built around 1910 with solid two foot thick walls. The cottage is detached and arranged on one level with easy access throughout.

Set in the quiet location of Strathnacro, just outside the small village of Balnain, RiverView is less than 3 miles from the popular tourist centre of Drumnadrochit and the famous Loch Ness. A further 20 minutes away, a beautiful drive along the shores of Loch Ness, is the vibrant Highland Capital of Inverness.

The cottage is in a perfect spot to see a lot of the surrounding area. Loch Ness and Urqhuart Castle are just a few minutes away. Inverness and Ft. William are close by and make for perfect day trips. The Isle of Skye is a longer drive and worth an overnight stay. Every direction holds beautiful scenery. The cottage is...

Perfect little base to explore the Loch Ness area. Everything required was in the cottage, red deer often making an appearance in the field across the road. A week wasn't long enough so we'll be back, we look mountain bikes and there are so many trails around the area!
