Our three modern, well equipped self catering log cabins built from solid logs of Scottish Douglas Fir, are situated in a secluded location on a farm high above Loch Ness. They lie in a wooded area and the ground immediately above opens out onto a heathery moorland. The Self Catering Cabins are equipped with electric cooker, fridge-freezer, digital television, bath and shower. The main bedroom has a double bed and the other has two singles. We have recently added log-burning stoves for old-fashioned cosiness and free Wi-Fi for modern convenience. If there are more than four occupants, two beds can be made up in the living room.
The setting provides habitat, within 100 metres of your cabin, for roe and sika deer, red squirrels, hare, badgers, fox, pheasant, grouse and a whole range of other wildlife. The surrounding countryside is ideally suited for bird watching and hill walking with red kite, peregrines, buzzards and even osprey overhead. As there are only three cabins on the site, the tranquillity of the area is preserved. The village of Dores, 2 miles away, has only 100 inhabitants and lies on a picturesque bay.
Despite the seclusion of this location, the centre of Inverness is only 15 minutes drive away. This town has been called the “Hub of the Highlands” and this is an apt description, because its facilities serve a vast area, and a radial road system can take you north to Sutherland, west to Skye, east to Aberdeen and south to Aviemore and the Cairngorm mountains, all within a comfortable days travelling.
