Rowan Cottage is a charming Highland crofter's cottage that was originally built in the late 19th century and extended in 1992. The cottage is surrounded by the Highland hills and is not looked on by any other properties. A row of ancient Scots Pines line one side of the garden and woods with walking/cycling track are also part of the area. Beautiful, mature trees frame the front garden and there are two swings hanging from an ancient tree.

The cottage is incredibly cosy with wood burning stove in the sitting room and a light-filled open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room. French doors open to a view of the pines and tranquil garden.

Rowan cottage is a delightful Highland cottage set in some of the most beautiful surroundings you could hope for. You can tell as you drive out from Fort Augustus, passing by the southern tip of Loch Ness that you are going to be in for a treat. The views and the countryside are quite simply stunning!

Rowan Cottage is a fantastic place to spend a week. Set in a magical woodland garden, where deer come to feed amongst the foxgloves and pine trees, the house is an oasis of calm, comfort and relaxation. In spite of the fact that it rained almost every day during our stay, we had a wonderful holiday, venturing out to nearby... more

When one goes to Scotland, do you look for a stuffy city experience, or an authentic Highland retreat? For my family, it was decidedly the latter, and Rowan cottage delivered in spades for our long-awaited week-long vacation across the pond. To start, the location is amazing: miles from nowhere, but somehow smack dab in the middle of everything we wanted... more
