Overview

Between Inverness and Fort William in Scotland's incomparable Great Glen, the house is set in its large, enclosed garden, with views of the boats passing through the canal lock below you and sailing off down the loch.

This substantial, detached Victorian farmhouse has been completely refurbished and offers spacious accommodation, with an excellent balance between restrained elegance and comfort, where families as well as parties of adults can feel perfectly at ease.

The cosy sitting room has a wood-burning stove to keep it warm and the large windows that not only let in plenty of light but also afford wonderful views down to the canal.

The spacious farmhouse kitchen also has a dining area that is easily large enough to cope with a full house in comfort or for more formal dining the elegant dining room provides just the right atmosphere. Also on this level are a WC and a handy utility room.

Upstairs there are four excellent bedrooms, three double rooms and a twin room, each with their own little 'suite' with an adjoining bath or shower room. The bedrooms are all comfortably furnished with some very good antique pieces which are just right for such a house and with TVs in every bedroom, getting the children off to bed shouldn’t be too much of a problem! Having the bedrooms arranged in separate ‘wings’ of the house, each with its own facilities, means that each group has its own space.

Outside there is plenty of room for four cars in the gravelled parking area and there are also extensive grassed garden areas.

Map & Local

Reached by a short track and well away from the road, Leiter Fearn is ideal for families and walkers as guests are welcome to walk on the Estate's two miles of loch frontage.

Fort Augustus, just a few miles up the road, is a most attractive village with the Caledonian Canal descending in a series of locks almost through its centre. The lawns and towpath there, not to mention some restaurants and hostelries, make it a lovely spot to sit out with a coffee or dram and watch the yachts working their way through the locks.

Other interest are catered for too, as the estate offers clay pigeon shooting, fishing and stalking in season. Loch Ness is a short distance to the north and you are also near the junction where fast roads cut off to the north west. Further up Loch Ness, at Drumnadrochit, there is pony trekking and boat trips on the loch if a bit of monster-spotting appeals.

The Great Glen Way offers excellent cycling while down towards Fort William (28 miles). Aonach Mor offers skiing in winter and world championship mountain biking trails in other seasons. Why not trek up Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain, while you're there? The pretty Isle of Skye (54 miles) is also easily accessible for a day trip.

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.
