Just 2 miles west of the village of Drumnadrochit - (shops/restaurants/Loch Ness Monster Museum) on Loch Ness between Inverness (half-hour's drive) and Fort William (one hour's drive) - this attractive, detached cottage at Polmaily is set on a hillside above the wooded valley of the River Enrick - off the beaten tourist track and ideally placed for exploring all the magnificent Highland scenery which surrounds them. Just 3 miles south is Castle Urquhart on the side of Loch Ness where 'monster' sightings have been recorded. To the west is Hamish Macbeth's 'Plockton' and The Isle of Skye and 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 Forestry Commission land roundabout; there is golf and riding nearby and the chairlift up Ben Nevis at Aonach Mhor (skiing in winter) is only a 45 minute drive away.
Polmaily Bothy is an old stone 'bothy' - architecturally re-designed internally - which stands, detached, with its own pretty patio-garden (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.
Heating is by wood-burning stove and total-control central-heating (INCLUDED) A starter pack of fuel for the stove is INCLUDED. Bed-linen and towels are INCLUDED. Well behaved pets are welcome by arrangement. A fully refundable householder's deposit will be required. Smoking is not permitted within the property.
