Carn Loch Cottage, Gaich, Farr, Inverness

Sleeps 6 - Wi-Fi - Wood Burner - Two Pets Allowed

Carn Loch Cottage is a newly built property located in an elevated position just a short distance from the village of Farr on the South Side of Loch Ness. The property enjoys uninterrupted views across the spectacular Strathnairn countryside, and makes an ideal location for anyone looking for a peaceful location for a holiday. However with the City of Inverness just a twenty minute drive away, this property will also appeal to those guests looking for the wide range of facilities that the City has to offer.

Throughout the property has been tastefully furnished and is equipped to a good standard. The accommodation is located over two levels and the majority of the rooms offer views to the surrounding countryside. On the ground level a large spacious hall leads to an open plan sitting, dining area and kitchen, and this room benefits from a wood burner, and offers direct access to the patio area located to the rear. Further facilities on this level include a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom complete with a bath and separate shower and a large spacious utility room.

From the lower level a beautiful staircase leads to the upper level and a further two bedrooms, a double and a twin, and the shower room. The bedrooms on this level have traditional combed ceilings and quality oak flooring is fitted throughout. Heating in the property is provided by oil fired central heating and the owner supplies unlimited fuel for the wood burner. Outside the garden provides the perfect place to sit and relax after a day exploring, and ample parking space is available.

This part of South Loch Ness provides quiet country roads and open countryside, and the South Loch Ness Trail, making it ideal for an outdoor holiday, no matter what your outdoor pursuit. The quiet location and the surrounding moorland make it a wildlife haven, with red grouse, mountain hare and red deer, and an abundance of native birds.

The City of Inverness offers a wide arrange of facilities including a wide selection of shops and restaurants, an art gallery and museum, the Eden Court Theatre, and Culloden Battlefield and Fort George are located just a short distance from the City. Perhaps the best way to see everything that is on offer is to take a trip on the City Sightseeing Bus Tour. The Caledonian Canal also passes through Inverness and from here boat trips are available to Loch Ness with Jacobite Cruises.

Further afield the location of Carn Loch Cottage offers a perfect base for exploring, with the A9 north to the Northern Highland and the West Coast, and South to Aviemore and the Cairngorm National Park just a short distance away.

Carn Loch Cottage is a very comfortable and well equipped holiday cottage in a quiet and peaceful setting. The views from the front windows are spectacular, especially when the distant mountains are covered in snow. Although the cottage is in a quiet, isolated location, it is only 20 minutes or so from Inverness, the A9 trunk road and Fort Augustus is also easily accessible. The only problem we had was that despite all the water being very hot in the kitchen sink and washbasins, the bath water was only hand warm, and we had to boil kettles and pans in order to get it to temperature. That having been said the property is lovely and warm throughout, the underfloor heating is effective and the wood burner is a welcome source of additional heat when the temperature outside is low. We will definitely stay there again and that is the acid test for any property.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful area, peaceful and stunning views as well as being ideal to get around. Not far from Inverness Asda and Tesco 20 mins away but remote enough for anyone getting away from bustle of life. Can walk out of the door and walk into nature and the mountains. Enjoyed sitting on the hill above cottage listening to birds during the day and owls at night watching the sunsets over the mountains. Cottage was layed out lovely and cosy yet modern. I definitely want to return.

Lovely, clean and well planned cottage with amazing views that change by the hour. Very cosy with underfloor heating and a cracking log burner. Very impressed!

Carn Loch Cottage was perfection! It could not have been more comfortable, cosy, well equipped or in a more beautifully stunning position. We cannot wait to rebook through Wilderness Cottages who's service was excellent and return to Farr next year.

This was our first visit to Scotland and we were not disappointed! The accommodation was wonderful and spacious and the views (particularly the sunsets) were absolutely spectacular! Far enough from civilisation to be incredibly peaceful, but near enough to get shopping (although our Tesco home delivery driver wasn't terribly impressed!) The cottage was absolutely wonderful and had everything we could possibly need. Fantastic holiday.

Great stay in this lovely house, would come back to stay in a heartbeat. Clean and fresh, with easy to use appliances with clear operating instructions, information for surrounding area and excellent facilities for our two Labradors. With Inverness only a 15 min drive north and Aviemore a 30 min drive south, it is a great base for exploring the highlands and beyond. Lovely views from the house, nice and quiet but only 5 miles from the A9, our whole family loved it, if you get the chance give this one a try ????

Beautifully appointed large cottage fully equipped. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Stunning location and views with an abundance of great walks. The owners even thought of treats for the dogs along with beds and water bowls!

We have just returned from 5 day break in this wonderful cottage. Owners very welcoming, beautifully presented, very nice little extra touches on arrival after a 10 hour journey! (milk, biscuits, T bags) etc. There were even treats for the dog. Brilliant touch with having a crate for dogs as well, complete with clean bedding. Excellent base to explore from, well recommended by Wilderness cottages.

In July 2014 we spent three weeks in Carn Loch Cottage and it was fantastic! The cottage is very clean and well equipped with extraordinary views surround the woodlands scenery. The location is near Loch Ness and a good base for trips to Nairn, Loch Gerry, the inner and outer Hebrydes and the Cairngorms. Inverness is only 20 minutes away. We will definately come back with our dog. Thank you very much!
