Please note that the nightly rate shown is for the first two nights only. Each additional night is just £32 (off peak). Please ask for a quote if your stay is between 3 nights and 6 nights as TripAdvisor systems don't cope well with our pricing policy. The listed weekly and monthly rates are accurate though. Riverview is a genuine Highland Cottage, traditionally built around 1910 with solid two foot thick walls. The cottage is detached and arranged on one level with easy access throughout.

A further 20 minutes away, a beautiful drive along the shores of Loch Ness, is the vibrant Highland Capital of Inverness. Whether you're looking for a quiet retreat with deserted country walks and abandoned beaches, or action packed climbing, mountain and quad biking, horse riding or sailing - RiverView Cottage will be your perfect base. Nearby Inverness has excellent long distance transport links, from which RiverView Cottage can be reached via public transport. Acquired four years ago and run by a local trust for the benefit of two Inverness school boys, Riverview has been operated as a holiday let for almost twenty years. Riverview cottage will comfortably accommodate four people in two bedrooms. The kitchen, lounge and master bedroom are all dual aspect rooms, making the cottage a cosy but light and airy place to be. The lounge has a feature fireplace with the thick walls retaining heat in the winter but keeping it cool in the summer. The kitchen has been recently refitted with modern wall and base units and is well equipped while also providing room for dining. You will find one double bedroom and one twin bedroom along with a shower room fitted with the usual electric shower, toilet, sink and shaver points. Outside you have a private garden ground to the rear as well as side and front garden with established borders, trees and shrubs. There is a private drive with parking space enough for three or four cars. There is drive in drive out access, so no awkward reversing and turning. Riverview cottage also benefits from it's own small area of woodland leading to the banks of the river Enrick. The cottage is run on the simple premise of keeping life easy and honest. DISABLED ACCESS: There are no specific disabled modifications and no wheelchair access. But RiverView is all on one level with two small steps at the entrance and a very small step between lounge and entrance hall. We have though recently added grab handles at the front door and in the shower, as these will assist our more ‘senior’ guests.More

About the neighbourhood
You wont have to go far from RiverView Cottage in order to enjoy your stay. Drumnadrochit has a wide range of local shops and amenities including Post Office, medical centre, garages, restaurants and pubs. Just outside Drumnadrochit is Urquhart Castle and it's award winning visitors centre. Glen Urquhart is a typical area at the 'heart of the Highlands'. Seldom more so than during it's Highland Games. These games aren't for show but a part of the living Highland tradition. Loch Meickle is a very short distance away. It's surrounding area provides for great walking and cycling. Loch Ness offers various watery activities including boat trips, sailing and water skiing. Then of course there is Nessie, our very own local monster.
