Cambussory Cottage sleeps six guests in three bedrooms and provides a real Highland 'away from it all' retreat which is popular with those who enjoy Scottish country sports, outdoor enthusiasts and guests seeking total peace and tranquillity.
Set half way up one of the prettiest Glens of the Scottish Highlands, this stone cottage sits in a perfect location for a peaceful holiday and is ideal for those wanting to explore this beautiful wilderness and climb one of the many hills or mountains that are part of the spectacular Glen Strathfarrar.
Whether you enjoy cycling, walking, photography, wildlife watching (with wild red deer, mountain goats and an abundance of birdlife to see) or simply relaxing, Cambussory Cottage is ideal at any time of the year (two open fireplaces are sure to keep you cosy all year round). From March to October the Glen has restricted vehicular access so there are very few cars to be seen on the fourteen miles of tarmac road. During the winter months, there are no vehicles allowed with the exception of those from the Estates so it is even quieter! Seasonal Fishing can be arranged with the Estate office or other local Estates on the Glass, Farrar or further afield Beauly Estates. There is also a nine hole golf course at Aigas (approximately thirteen miles away) or further afield at Nairn and Castle Stuart.
If cosy nights in enjoying supper in front of a roaring fire are not enough for you, The Cnoc Hotel is seven miles away and well worth the cycle or short car ride as it serves good food. For those who enjoy shopping (or who need to stock up on provisions), Beauly is seventeen miles away (so not for the forgetful shopper!).
Well placed for visiting the many attractions that are ‘The Highlands of Scotland’ has to offer, Cambussory Cottage is within driving distance of Drumnadrochit with the Loch Ness exhibition and Urquhart Castle. The Highland Capital City of Inverness with dolphin cruises, shopping and excellent eating establishments is also within easy reach and just a forty five minute drive away. Take a trip up to John o Groats or go across to Skye for the day. Visit any one of the many distilleries on the Whisky trail or castles the area is famed for or visit the nature reserve at Glen Affric for more walking, wildlife and cycling opportunities. The choices are endless!
