Property code: 44481

Situated on the outskirts of the picturesque Highland village of Drumnadrochit, this charming bungalow has a private hot tub and is an ideally situated base for a relaxing holiday.

This two-bedroom bungalow is conveniently located 1 mile from Loch Ness and is ideal for exploring this beautiful stretch of water and enjoying the many walks along its shores with your canine companion. At the end of the day, relax in your private hot tub while your furry friend snoozes by the wood burning stove.

The property has a cosy open-plan lounge/diner, ideal for cosy evenings in. Two bedrooms promise a good night’s sleep for all. Outside is an enclosed garden and patio area with furniture, BBQ and hot tub – perfect for soaking those muscles after a day out while your furry friend dreams of their encounters with Nessie.

The property is just 200 metres from a hotel/restaurant serving locally sourced food and fine whiskies, where dogs are welcome in the beer garden. You’re also less than a mile from the shops and restaurants of Drumnadrochit, known as the Nessie capital of Loch Ness. Just 1.5 miles away is a departure point for cruises on the Loch – dogs are welcome on the boat. After a hearty breakfast you might want to travel the 2.5 miles to the start point of the 6-mile walk up Meall Fuar-Mhonaidh, the highest summit round Loch Ness with breathtaking views across to Ben Nevis and the Cairngorms. A little further afield, 16 miles away is Inverness, the cultural capital of Scotland, and 3 miles from the city is the emotive and atmospheric battlefield of Culloden which welcomes dogs on leads

Just back from a fantastic week at Riverside Cottage. The cottage had everything we needed and more. The hot tub and covered seating area were brilliant and the dog loved the freedom of the garden. Wendy looked after us well during our stay and recommended some great visits. Location wise we were close to pubs, restaurants and supermarket so all waRead mores good. If you get the chance I'd recommend The Loch Ness Inn or Fiddlers for food but would recommend booking beforehand. Hide

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The owner went out of her way to provide all the essentials you need on arrival. Hot tub was fantastic ( you cant beat looking up at the stars on a clear night, whilst having a good soak ). All mod cons are provided for you in the cottage, Drumnadrochitt is such a quiet place for you to use it as a base to exRead moreplore the highlands or western isles. I guarantee you will not be disappointed with this property, get it booked and grab yourself a great holiday. Hide

It was perfect, proper "home from home". It was very welcoming. Didnt need to go shopping for basics (we did before we got they) as there was everything we needed (even chocolate biscuits and cake). Cannot recommend it enough. Owner, Wendy, very friendly and helpful too. Will definitely go back
