Cottage
Welcome to our quirky and pretty detached self-catering cottage with own garden. Dogs are welcomed and free. It is situated in a beautiful rural location in the Highlands village of Foyers set by world famous Loch Ness and the Falls of Foyers. Ideal for walking locally (long walks start from the door) or perfect as a base to explore the Highlands. Excellent kayaking and cycling area. Swimming in the Loch for the hardy or wetsuit clad is a perfect way to unwind after the days excursions. Foyers benefits from having a village pub, cafes and hotels, all within walking distance of the cottage. For fans of the historical OUTLANDER drama series, the Cottage is of particular interest. The character Jamie Fraser is based on the real James Fraser, 9th of Foyers, who lived at Foyers Mansio... Welcome to our quirky and pretty detached self-catering cottage with own garden. Dogs are welcomed and free. It is situated in a beautiful rural location in the Highlands village of Foyers set by world famous Loch Ness and the Falls of Foyers. Ideal for walking locally (long walks start from the door) or perfect as a base to explore the Highlands. Excellent kayaking and cycling area. Swimming in the Loch for the hardy or wetsuit clad is a perfect way to unwind after the days excursions. Foyers benefits from having a village pub, cafes and hotels, all within walking distance of the cottage. For fans of the historical OUTLANDER drama series, the Cottage is of particular interest. The character Jamie Fraser is based on the real James Fraser, 9th of Foyers, who lived at Foyers Mansion House. The Mansion is no longer here, but the cottage is situated within the site where it stood. Escaping from the battle of Culloden, Jamie was forced to hide for 7 years in Dun Bonnets Cave, found about a mile from the cottage. Further information for this is provided for our guests on arrival. The cottage is set in a unique, beautiful and peaceful spot surrounded by trees but with a breathtaking view from the garden of the River Foyers, the old masonry bridge and the dramatic Gorge. Being set away from roads, it is a perfect location to truly forget about the car and the clock and enjoy the natural area, climbing the hills or relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. Highly recommend spending an evening stargazing from the garden on clear nights. Truly spectacular! Deer, red squirrels, pine martens, badgers, bats, owls, our own 'herd' of pheasants and a variety of small birds are all frequent visitors to the garden. And on occasion a herd of wild goats! Advise having a camera ready at all times. Inverness is approximately 25 miles away for those who wish to explore the Capital City of The Highlands. There are a huge selection of excellent restaurants, cafes and shops to be found. An evening walk by Ness Bank and Islands is not to be missed. The cottage has an open plan design and facilities comprise of: Entrance lobby with log burner* and seat. Fitted kitchen with dining table and chairs, electric oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, Delonghi Dolce Gusto pod coffee machine, electric food steamer. Bedroom area with double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers, plus small dressing table with mirror. Bed linen and towels are supplied. Small ensuite bathroom with large shower, toilet and basin. Snug to left of bedroom has 2 seater sofa, Samsung 4K Smart TV and Sony BluRay player, good selection of DVDs, log burner*, coffee table, games and books. Wifi available. Fully fenced pet friendly garden. Garden table and chairs, sun loungers and barbecue. *Woodburning stoves are in addition to electric heating. Please bring own logs, kindling & firelighters. We do have supplies available to purchase on arrival. Ample parking is provided with plenty of room for anyone wanting to bring a boat and trailer. Public slips can be found at Fort Augustus and Dores. Easy access for canoes and kayaks via the river, which is just a minutes walk away or launch directly onto the loch. Fishing can also be found minutes from the let. Our cosy cottage is ideal for a couple or single person seeking a very reasonably priced holiday in the highlands that is not lacking in comfort and facilities. The price is fixed all year (excluding Christmas and New Year) and includes electric costs. A warm, clean and cosy wee holiday stay. Additional people may stay by pitching a tent in the garden for an extra cost pw per person. This is a truly beautiful area to stay in all seasons. Whether you prefer hot summer days sunbathing by the Loch; long autumnal walks enjoying the stunning change of colour - spectacular beside the gorge; crisp winter days with heavy frosts and snow clad mountains; or the very long days of spring full of birdsong. We look forward to welcoming you.More
