Old Stables is a beautifully restored building in a delightful rural setting beside a working farm and set within the RSPB reserve of Corrimony. Now this superb old building provides high quality self catering accommodation for up to 10 people. It is large and is an ideal venue for self catering groups and large families who want to visit the reserve for bird watching, or for groups of fishermen intending to fish the nearby rivers and hill lochs. It is also very close to Loch Ness and geographically ideal for touring the Highlands and west coast. Pets are welcome but must be supervised at all times as sheep occupy the surrounding fields.
Old Stable was once the stables for the horses and carriages, with living space above, for the grooms, of Corrimony House, a Victorian mansion with its own Ice House, the remains of which may still be seen.
Many walks radiate from the property to interesting local archaeological sites, including Corrimony Cairn, lochs, a waterfall and, of course, the birdlife that abounds here on the reserve. It is also an ideal place to venture to Glen Affric, one of the most beautiful glens in the whole of Scotland. Within the glen lies part of the ancient Caledonian pine forest. Walking around the loch is a day’s hike and a highlight of any holiday.
Cannich, the local village, is just 4 miles distant, for a post office and groceries. 9 miles from the loch Ness village of Drumnadrochit, where there is a good choice of things to do, places to visit and restaurants and pubs. Inverness and Beauly are both 25 miles from the accommodation. The Old Stable is within a days travel to Skye, Fort William, Caithness and the Castle of Mey, the late Queen Mother's favourite retreat, now open to the public.
Two well behaved pets are welcome but with livestock so close to all the garden boundaries, they should be kept on a lead outside the grounds.
Sorry - this is a no smoking property.
Private water with filters and UV treatment.
A wonderful house set in a very quiet remote tranquil location three miles from Cannick. Ticked all the boxes for our visit, had a wonderful time.
Wonderful beautiful stunning setting for our stay at the Old Stables. Everything was just perfect. Location, premises were all fantastic and couldn't have faulted anything especially with 10 of us altogether. There was absolutely loads room and space for everyone for our long weekend stay. Very comfortable relaxing and peaceful with plenty of everything for 10 people. Beautiful countryside and lovely walks in surrounding area. Hope to be back in near future.
I have just returned from a family holiday, could not recommend this highly enough. In an idyllic setting that is quiet and safe for families it was a most enjoyable trip. The accommodation was excellent with everything provided that you would require, Mrs Girvan the owner could not have been more welcoming and helpful. I would hope to return next year for another wonderful holiday. Thank you
An amazing house which is equipped for everything you may need or require for a very comfortable holiday house. Trips to Inverness on the rainy days then walking in Glen Affric on the better ones.
We had a great holiday at Old Stables. The conversion of a former stable into this wonderful spacious and relaxing accomadation suitable, as in our case for three generations -from 21yrs thro to 81yrs. The house was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. We have enjoyed two holidays with Wilderness Cottages and both houses have provided the same excellent standard of accomodation.
We stayed at the Old Stables in April 2009. it is very comfortable and beautifully kept with good facilities and in a lovely location with walking and history on the doorstep. It is also not far from the beautiful glens of Affic and Strathfarrar. The younger members of our party (early twenties) also found good mountain biking and golf not too far away. An excellent week with reasonable weather.
