  • About the property

    Set on the shore of Loch Ness and surrounded by wildlife-rich countryside, this country house is a highly memorable and magical Highlands retreat. Four acres of private grounds lead down to a shingle bay, perfect for lazy days listening to the sounds of nature whilst enjoying a BBQ feast. Renovated to the highest standard, interiors are very elegant and finished with handpicked antiques. It’s cosy and welcoming too, whether you wish to curl up by the log fire and admire the loch from the huge windows in the living room, or savour a hearty dinner together around the bespoke dining table.

  • The space

    This country house combines the splendour and tradition of its Highlands location with a high level of luxury and comfort. Originally built in the 1930s by a ship’s captain, nautical elements have been incorporated into the interior design as a nod to the house’s heritage. For example, there are lights salvaged from a ship in Cornwall.

    The downstairs of the house is where you and your fellow guests can relax and be entertained. Start the day in the breakfast room that has seating for ten, while dinner can be cooked in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed together around the 4-metre-long, custom-made dining table. There is also a utility room with washing machine and dryer.

    After a day out exploring and walking in the countryside, muddy boots can be stored in the wicker baskets underneath a century-old pew. In the evenings, or on rainy days, unwind by the log fire in the living room. When it comes to fun there’s a cinema room with large Smart TV and surround sound – perfect for teenagers. Meanwhile, the games room, which is decorated with retro neon signs and original cinema seating, offers a pool table, air hockey table, foosball table and an arcade machine. There are also a number of books, board games and a carrom board that the whole family can enjoy together.

    Upstairs is a tranquil space with six luxurious bedrooms. The master has a super-king-size bed and an en-suite with bath and shower. There are three doubles, two with an en-suite shower room, a twin with an en-suite shower room and a bunk room (single and double beds to sleep three) with an en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom. Each bedroom has a set of binoculars so you can look out for wildlife.

    The four acres of grounds and gardens offer plenty of opportunities for exploring, walks, picnics and venturing down to the lochside. There is a purpose-built BBQ hut, benches, bespoke swing seats and even a shed containing fishing rods and equipment.

Local Info

The neighbourhood

From the lochside beach at the bottom of the garden there are sheltered moorings where you can launch your kayaks or dinghies. To totally appreciate the sights and sounds of nature at the loch, spend some time down there relaxing and there’s even a fire pit where you can enjoy a BBQ.

If you like wildlife, red squirrels and rabbits are often spotted in the garden, while grouse also call the grounds their home. In the winter you might also see deer taking a drink at the edge of the loch.

The village of Fort Augustus is about a 10-minute drive away and offers a selection of pubs, restaurants and gift shops. It’s also the location of the Clansman Centre, home to a 19th century Highland turf-house, while the Nessie boat tour also departs from the village. Just past Fort Augustus is a scenic 9-hole golf course.

Meanwhile, the village of Drumnadrochit is a 15-minute drive away and is home to the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition, as well as pubs, takeaways, a convenience store and whisky shop. The romantic ruins of 16th century Urquhart Castle are just outside the village. ?
