See our reviews on Trip Advisor! An ideal retreat from the stresses of a busy life Rowan Cottage is wonderful for a romantic break or family holiday Step back in time as you enter this charming timber cottage with its tranquil atmosphere and old world ambiance. Styled on the hill bungalows of Kashmir. it was built in 1934 by a relative on her retirement from a life working in India. On arrival Rowan Cottage offers a traditional Highland welcome - a welcome cup of tea, a 'dram' of Scots whisky, and some shortbread. Flowers, candles and other special touches make you feel instantly at home. The cottage has about an acre of wild garden of heather and trees, and is situated beside a very minor road at the head of the Pass of Inverfarigaig, (part of which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its flora) just a mile and a half from the southern shores of Loch Ness. Privacy is assured, as the nearest house is about 300 metres away, and 50 metres down the road a forest track links into a network of paths through Farigaig forest - ideal for a walk with your dog. Whether you like to kick back and relax, or take advantage of the many activities and historic sights to see, Rowan Cottage provides a comfortable and welcoming base. The partially enclosed verandah offers wonderful open views to the hill on the northern side of Loch Ness - Mealfuarvonie (Gaelic for the rounded hill of the cold hollow.) This sun room invites you to sit back and relax with a book and a 'dram', or perhaps enjoy listening to some traditional Scottish music. On clear and frosty winter nights you may be lucky enough to have a seat with a grandstand view of the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. Centrally situated for touring, Cairngorm National Park, Ben Nevis and Glencoe, Skye and the white sand beaches of the north-west are all within easy reach, or you may prefer to relax locally visit the Falls of Foyers, try some Nessie spotting, dolphin watching on the Moray Firth, or go walking, swimming or birdwatching. The RSPB have a hide nearby, where you may see Slavonian Grebes, or you could try your hand at trout fishing with a local guide, or relax with some complementary therapy. Inverness is a half hours drive, for some retail therapy, and local Hotels provide good food if you don't feel like cooking. From the visitors book: 'The quietest, most peaceful place we've ever been. It's like being in another world. Can't wait to come back.' 'Here for the 3rd time. Lovely and peaceful - great place to recharge your batteries.' 'We've done what we set out to do - relaxed and read a book or two. Quiet walks, drank some wine - sat out on the porch when the weather was fine. Sang some songs, fished some streams; life here is exactly what it seems - peaceful and calm in every way. Many thank yous Janet, we've enjoyed our stay! Many of our guests return time and time again and become good friends - we hope we may also say to you - 'Ceud Mile Failte!' ( a hundred thousand welcomes) to Rowan Cottage. More

Rowan cottage is a haven of peace. Janet left us a little dram, fresh flowers and biccies on our arrival. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable, with everything we needed. Dogs loved it, with plenty of forest walks. Didn't want to go home.
