Cottage near Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
About julie adams
I am an Engineering Geologist from Glasgow, but have recently relocated to the area and work in Inverness. I've been coming to this area for years, being a keen hillwalker and have a love of the outdoors. I fell in love with the wee cottage as soon as i saw it. It has all the character you'd expect from one of the oldest houses in the village, but has been recently renovated to provide you with all the comforts you may need. Living locally, I know how convenient a location it is, with much to offer and can provide you with suggestions of what to do with the time you have here if needed. The cottage will provide you with a great base to explore the area and make your stay an enjoyable one.

What makes this Cottage unique
My cottage is a well proportioned, comfortable, 2 bedroomed traditional build with a secluded garden, sitting out area, lockable storage, oil central heating and log burner. It's set in the picturesque village of East Lewiston, close to the shores of Loch Ness, within 5 minutes walk from pubs, an inn and local shop, riding school, 15 minutes walk from Urqhuart Castle and 20 minutes drive from the City of Inverness. Perfect for a couple or family on a budget seeking to get away from it all but with all the conveniences of a city being close by

Amazing cottage, great location
We had a wonderful time, the cottage is cosy and there is everything. Julie the host is very helpful and thoughtful
Glad you had a great stay Delphine. Thank you for your kind words and thank you for the fridge goodies!!
Torran Cottage is a Superb place to stay. Myself and family had a great week exploring the area .
From the first contact with Julie the cottage owner we felt we had made the right choice for are stay. On arrival we were sure. What a fabulous cottage, in a beautiful location. The cottage was equipped with everything you could possible need for your stay and more. The village and cottage are easy to find, and a pleasant and short drive from Inverness and the airport itself. You also get your first great views of Loch Ness on the way. A great place to stay for exploring , with fantastic walks and attractions within minutes of the cottage. Culloden battlefield, Fort George and Fort Augustus are all within a 30- 40 min drive. Even a day trip to Skye is not out of the question. Can’t recommend this beautiful cottage highly enough. For those coming to explore the Highland scenery, or those wishing to just relax and chill in the cottage and it’s lovely garden, you can’t go wrong.

Aw you're welcome Michal. You were such a lovely couple and glad you had such a nice stay, my pleasure:-) Cannot believe the distances you travelled! Think you're up there with mileage if not top!
Hope to see you again,
Take care till then
What a find great location semidetached but you would think you are detached and in the country. Main aspects which appealed to us was very clean accommodation, location and warm. Would recommend this property well above average for the price they charge.
Thanks again to Julie and Rob
