                                                          We very much enjoyed our stay in Drumnadrochit. the view from our cottage was incredible and our host, Allan was very helpful and check in on us to make sure all was fine, he even left fresh milk,tea and coffee and cookies. great location near the town and convenient to visit Loch Ness.

                                                          Ruhig gelegenes Haus mit netten Vermietern

                                                          Jutta E.

                                                          Wir verbrachten zwei herrliche Wochen in dem Lodge Nr. 1! Unsere Reisezeit war vom 02.-16.06.2017. Das Wetter war sehr durchwachsen. Als Tipp kann ich nur empfehlen sich morgens und abends auf BBC 1 die Nachrichten mit dem Wetter anzuschauen. Danach kann man dann problemlos die Tagestouren planen. Drumnadrochit ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Fahrten in alle Richtungen. Bei der Touristen-Information im Ort kann man auf kostenloses W-LAN zugreifen. Die Unterkunft ist sehr hochwertig und lässt keine Wünsche offen.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thanks for taking the time to post a review.

                                                          We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you may come again some day.



                                                          Schöne ruhige Lodge mit wunderschöner Aussicht

                                                          Lars L.

                                                          Komfortable eingerichtete Lodge mit allem notwendigen. Die Aussicht ist super. Man kann gut entspannen und es gibt ganz ganz viel was man sich anschauen kann. Der Vermieter war/ist freundlich und hat sich um alle unsere Wünsche gekümmert. Für Naturliebhaber ist das eine wunderschöne Gegend. Das war bestimmt nicht der letzte Urlaub in Schottland. Einen Nachteil gab es aber " das schottische Wetter". Jeden Tag mal regen aber das kann man mit richtiger Kleidung kompensieren;-). Danke für die schöne Zeit.


                                                          Inverness, Highland, UK

                                                          Loch Ness, and its most famous resident 'Nessie' the Loch Ness Monster, has become one of the most famous lochs (or lakes) in the world. It's the largest loch in Britain by volume of water at 39km long with an average depth of 132m & its deepest point is 320m near Urquhart Castle. It holds more fresh water than all the lakes and reservoirs in England and Wales put together. BUT there is more to the area than just our famous loch and its elusive monster - Drumnadrochit is home to two monster exhibitions and the historical Urquhart Castle is nearby as is the Corrimony Chambered burial cairn in Glenurquhart. The Great Glen itself provides fantastic scenery and Drumnadrochit is a centre from which the whole of the North of Scotland can be explored - West perhaps to Eilean Donan Castle and the Isle of Skye, North to visit Dunrobin Castle or Castle of Mey or even over the sea on a day trip to Orkney, East to Speyside which is Whisky Country or South to visit Cairngorms National Park.
