This beautiful lodge offers stunning far-reaching Highland views and is ideally situated for visiting Inverness, Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle and many other fantastic attractions.

"This characterful lodge located in the very heart of the Highlands could be your adventurous retreat from which to discover all the mystery and beauty of this fantastic area. Step straight out into the wilds around Loch Ness for some once-in-a-lifetime walks with your dogs.

The lodge is a sweet wooden home, with an enclosed garden set out overlooking the stunning surrounding landscape of Cannich and the hills beyond. Inside is the heart of the cabin, a spacious open-plan area. There’s a lovely kitchen with everything you need to rustle up holiday treats, and a washing machine so you can pack light, plus a dining table perfect for four, and a cosy living area that will make you feel at home even as the wilderness beckons outside. On the same level are your two delightful bedrooms: a king-size room for some cosy indulgence in the countryside and a bunk bedroom, ideal for kids, plus a comfortable shower room so you can feel fresh even after a day in the hills.

Head into the landscape to walk, climb, cycle, ride, and make your own way through the Highlands to discover its extraordinary atmosphere. The village of Cannich, nestled between the Rivers Glass and Cannich, hosts a collection of sweet Scottish sights, including your local pub and village stores. You can even fish for trout or salmon. And you’ll want to head to Loch Ness; a scenic walk around this mysterious lake with your dogs is just 15 miles away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The lodge was very clean and tidy and very dog friendly the best we have stayed at. And the food at the slaters arms is very very good, and all the staff make you feel at home. I would like to thank Angie scot and staff for making this a very good holiday. Thank you all

The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. The lochs and scenery was out of the world. Our dog was made very welcome and she made lots of friends. We'll worth a visit

Reviewed by Duncan 7th June 2019

Comfortable well equipped lodge, ideal for a break with the dogs. Best suited for walkers / explorers looking for a base camp rather than a residential holiday, ideally located for Glen Affric walks. Owners are very helpful and dog lovers, they also own the adjacent pub which is dog friendly and very convenient.

Lovely cottage with fabulous views, situated at the back of the Slaters Arms which has a restaurant with lovely food (highly recommend the shin of beef) and also does takeaways. We were made to feel welcome, good walks from the cottage which was really clean on arrival

Reviewed by Leanne 28th April 2019

We had a lovely stay and the cabin felt like a home from home. Very clean, lovely views and within a short drive of many stunning scenic walks.

Reviewed by Graham 15th November 2018

Perfect if you want a quiet escape. However not remote in the sense that there's a restaurant and Spar less than a 2 minute walk away. The cabins are clean and have all mod cons. Speedy WiFi and a decent mobile reception is a bonus. Owners are friendly and helpful.
