A little bit more about Loch Ness Highland Cottages and our location?

Well, we are remote enough for nature lovers yet only a few minutes drive to all the amenities that you might need such as pubs, restaurants, post offices, petrol stations (Fort Augusts is 3.5 miles and Drumnadrochit is 15 miles). 

You can park your car outside your lodge (free parking) and enjoy walking, cycling, climbing from our location. Children and pets will love the forest walks. 

All three accommodations have either an outdoor picnic table or garden table and chairs.

As we are located within the forrest surrounding Loch Ness there are no street lights which gives excellent starry views on clear nights, torches are located within each accommodation to support you.


We are 3.5 miles north of Fort Augustus on the A82 road. You will see our white sign on the left hand side of the road. Or, if coming from the north we are 2 miles from Invermoriston.
