This is a fantastic base for enjoying a wide array of wildlife and numerous fabulous walks, or you could sit back and relax and enjoy the sublime views. You can take a cruise on Loch Ness or visit the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre and Urquhart Castle which are all within easy reach. Close by at Drumnadrochit and Fort Augustus you will find a choice of shops, restaurants and pubs. Inverness is around an hour away.

On entering this quaint traditional bothy, you will find yourself in the welcoming and cosy lounge/kitchen/diner. With original exposed stonework and traditional wood burner, the lounge is ideal for relaxing in and enjoying the superb views. Please note that the property does not have a TV.

The accommodation offers one comfy bedroom which is accessed via a ladder leading up to gallery sleeping area where you will find a super-king-size bed.

Stepping outside, you can unwind, relax and enjoy the glorious views from the lawn area which is within a well-maintained 50 acre estate on the banks of Loch Ness. On the estate there are paths along Loch Ness, with others leading through the wooded estate to a pond with an island and a little Summer house in which one can read and relax, watching the birds and wildlife. There are very few opportunities to actually walk along the shores of Loch Ness, but Old Farm has about a mile of shoreline to explore. Fishing in both the pond and Loch Ness can also be arranged.

Fantastic location with access to a summer house right next to the Lock . Enjoyed having no phone signal but did cheat and brought a TV ! The stone Bothy gets very warm once the fire is lit . Will defiantly come again

Reviewed by Amelia 1st September 2018

A wonderfull little cottage - compact, but well-equipped, comfortable, and in a fantastic, peaceful location, over-looking Loch Ness.

Reviewed by Martin 2nd June 2018

Key thing is location, situated just off the banks of Loch Ness on a private, peaceful estate which runs along the edge of the loch for a mile or so. View of the loch from the bothy, and just a short stroll down to the water, where you can wonder around and explore. So location couldn't be better. Bothy is 'quirky' and cute, cosy and well equipped.Read more Very, very good value for money. Hide
