Thanks for your review. Nobody has ever mentioned the size of the shower before and it is a standard size shower tray so I am very surprised by that comment. We feel there is plenty of room in kitchen for food preparation as there is...More

About the neighbourhood
We are situated right in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and , therefore , convenient for exploring the surrounding area including Loch Ness , Aviemoew , Ben Nevis , Isle of Skye and other Scottish Islands . You can also enjoy the Whisky trail which takes in many a scenic location . The Whisky distillery of Glen Ord is just over 5 miles away .

This area is particularly good for Hiking and mountain biking with excellent opportunities close to our bungalow . Also we can offer fishing from our site on the River Blackwater . This River leads up to the famous Rogie Falls where , depending on the time of year , you can see the Salmon leaping , a truly awesomew sight .
