Step back in time as you enter this charming timber cottage with its tranquil atmosphere and old world ambience.

Flowers, candles and other special touches make you feel instantly at home and a phone line and free wi-fi means you can keep in touch with the outside world if you choose to!

The cottage has about an acre of wild garden of heather and trees, and is situated beside a very minor road at the head of the Pass of Inverfarigaig, (part of which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its flora) just a mile and a half from the southern shores of Loch Ness. Priv...

About the neighbourhood
Rowan Cottage has off-road parking and is situated on the quiet side of Loch Ness, with wonderful scenery. Forest walks, the South Loch Ness Trail or the Trail of the Seven Lochs invite exploration, and there are several small lochs for trout fishing. If you have never fished before but would like to try, Alex offers a day or half days fishing tuition for beginners. More experienced anglers can enjoy a great day out with him too. If you prefer to relax,you canenjoy a session of Reiki or Indian Head Massage with Janet. A local loch has a small sandy beach (only known to locals!) with good, safe swimming, and there is a shop, Post Office and cafe at Foyers just 4 miles away. - great for a coffee or lunch after visiting the Falls of Foyers.

Centrally situated for touring, Cairngorm Na...
