The Details...

For those who want to get away from it all then head to Sandray Cottage, a semi-detached heritage property in a secluded spot at Kytra Lock. Part of a 3-cottage hamlet in Scotland's wild and woolly countryside, Sandray perfectly blends original charm with modern living.

Sleeping up to 4 people, guests enter the cottage up a small set of steps and the entrance leads to the main living quarters. The light and airy lounge has original features, such as polished wooden floors, and is decorated with traditional fabrics to combine style and character. It also has a comfy sofa, armchair and window seat, a wood burner, and TV. The well equipped kitchen and dining room comes complete with electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washing machine. The bathroom is also found on this level and has a shower over the bath, basin, and WC.

A short trip upstairs leads to the 2 bedrooms - 1 with a double bed and 1 with twin beds. With pitched ceilings and clever design these make for a cosy escape. Sandray also has a private garden, which has a lawn area, woodland bordering 1 side, and a patio with outdoor furniture - the ideal place to relax with a drink and watch the boats drift up and down the canal. 2 cars can be left in the private parking spaces across the canal.

Holidays don't come much more sheltered and beautiful than at this cottage, with Scots pines all around and overlooked by Tor Dhuin hill fort. Yet despite seeming so remote, Fort Augustus and its array of pubs and restaurants is only 2 miles away. The village sits on the southernmost tip of Loch Ness and watching the labyrinth of canals meet there is a spectacle in itself. It's also the ideal starting point for a range of activities; including walking, cycling, kayaking, and more.

A short drive north and those staying can take a cruise on the famous Loch Ness while taking in the fantastic views of Urquhart Castle. The leaping salmon at nearby Moriston Falls is also very popular, or drive on further to the Isle of Skye past Eilean Donan castle.
