Polmaily Bothy

Near Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness


Just two miles west of the village of Drumnadrochit (with shops, restaurants and Loch Ness Monster Museum) on Loch Ness, this attractive, detached cottage at Polmaily is set on a hillside above the wooded valley of the River Enrick.

Set off the beaten tourist track but only half an hour's drive from Inverness and an hour's drive from Fort William, the cottage is ideally placed for exploring all the magnificent Highland scenery surrounding it.

Polmaily Bothy is an old stone 'bothy' which has been architecturally re-designed internally. It stands detached, with its own pretty patio garden (with furniture), at the edge of what was formerly a traditional farm-steading.

Double-glazed and very cosy with its wood-burning stove, it has a stone-flagged floor and wooden beams and its wide doorways and level flooring make it ideal for the less able. It is altogether a most comfortable house for all seasons of the year.

Just three miles south is Castle Urquhart on the side of Loch Ness where the famous 'monster' sightings have been recorded.

To the west is Hamish Macbeth's 'Plockton' and the Isle of Skye. Northwards is the stunning scenery of Glen Affric where 'The Last of The Mohicans' was filmed in this miniature Canadian Rockies like scenery many years ago.

Both sides of Loch Ness can be explored by car or boat. There is excellent walking on the Forestry Commission land round about and there is golf and riding nearby with the chairlift up Ben Nevis at Aonach Mhor (skiing in winter) only a 45 minute drive away.

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
