Self catering cottage Sleeps 4 adults + 2 children Pets welcome. Category 1 disability award. STB 4*'s.  Green tourism - Gold.

The Haven is a luxury two bedroom self catering holiday home, built in 2008 to cater primarily for the disabled holiday maker but is ideal for anyone wanting a quality self catering accommodation. The cottage carries a category 1 award for the facilities available and also has a gold award for green tourism. Situated on the 200 acre Dalvourn Farm, which lies amidst the beautiful and picturesque valley of Strathnairn, the cottage sits in a secluded idyllic woodland location, only 6 miles south east of Inverness, 11 miles from Loch Ness and 26 miles from the skiing centre of Aviemore. Nearby, and within walking distance, is the rural village of Inverarnie, with a well stocked shop and Post Office.

For couples, families or for the larger party (you could hire our other cottages Woodpecker Pad or Rowan Ridge as well) this is an ideal spot for your holiday in the Scottish Highlands. With superb views all round, much thought and care has gone into the layout and spacings of the cottages to provide maximum privacy and secure the best views of the mountains around.

There are 3.5 miles of beautiful woodland and riverside nature walks at Dalvourn, starting at your cottage doorstep. Part of the walk is suitable for wheelchairs. These connect into Forest Enterprise roads/walks allowing you to walk for miles into the hills (or mountain bike) on good quiet forest trails. We are sure your four legged friend will simply love this freedom. Over a mile stretch of river runs through the centre of the farm and passes just below the cottage. There is a wide variety of wildlife and birdlife, with several RSPB reserves local to the holiday cottages, including Loch Ruthven, the main breeding place of the rare Slavonian grebe. Gold eagle, red kite, osprey, buzzard, owl, hawks and woodpeckers are frequently seen.

Choosing your accomodation close to the city of Inverness and Loch Ness, has numerous benefits - excellent shopping and sports facilities within Inverness, Loch Ness cruises, many top class golf courses, Culloden battlefield, Moray Firth dolphins and a central location for wider tours in the Highlands and Islands. For winter visitors, this is an ideal base for a skiing holiday, with Aviemore only 30 minutes by car.

Our second year at the Haven. Two weeks this time. The bungalow is just 'heaven'. The perfect place to spend a few days of rest - walk around the beautiful area next to the bungalow (we saw grouse and deer this year by the river) - or travel out to explore the Highlands (this holiday we covered 2,200 miles!!). All the facilities you could want - top of the range furniture and equipment - light, bright and warm and spacious. We will be back to the Haven next year.
