Don't forget your bath salts and aromatherapy oils and experience the pure indulgence of sinking slowly into the large deep tub, leaving the stress of modern life far behind. The spacious, warm and comfortable bedrooms will welcome you to a perfect nights sleep and during the day you will be drawn to the splendid conservatory complete with lounge and dining furniture. There could be nowhere more perfect to have your breakfast and take in the magnificent views of Loch Ness. Morning Coffee will never be the same, enjoy a leisurely lunch or best of all, an evening sitting around the dining table with your family and friends chatting and at the same time being spoilt by the ever changing and never ending views. French doors from the conservatory take you to the garden, ideal for a relaxing afternoon, alfresco dining and the children will just love its freedom. We have installed free Satellite Broadband with Wifi averaging speeds of 20-30 Mbps. More
