For fans of the historical OUTLANDER drama series, the Cottage is not to be missed. The character Jamie Fraser is based on the real James Fraser, 9th of Foyers, who lived at Foyers Mansion House. The Mansion is no longer here, but the cottage is situated within the site where it stood. Escaping from the battle of Culloden, Jamie was forced to hide for 7 years in Dun Bonnets Cave, found about a mile from the cottage. Further information for this is provided for our guests staying at the cottage.
The cottage is situated in a unique, beautiful and peaceful spot surrounded by trees but with a breathtaking view from the garden of the River Foyers and Gorge. Being set away from roads, it is a perfect location to truly forget about the car and the clock and enjoy the natural area, climbing the hills or relaxing in the peaceful surroundings.
Highly recommend spending an evening stargazing from the garden on clear nights. Truly spectacular! Deer, red squirrels, pine martens, badgers, bats, owls, our own 'herd' of pheasants and a variety of small birds are all frequent visitors to the garden. And on occasion a herd of wild goats! Advise having a camera ready at all times.
Inverness is approximately 30 miles away for those who wish to explore the Capital City of The Highlands. There are a huge selection of excellent restaurants, cafes and shops to be found. An evening walk by Ness Bank and Islands is not to be missed.

Easy access for canoes and kayaks via the river, which is just a minutes walk away or launch directly onto the loch. Fishing can also be found minutes from the let.
Our cosy cottage is ideal for a couple or single person seeking a very reasonably priced holiday in the highlands, that is not lacking in comfort and facilities. The price is fixed all year (excluding Christmas and New Year) and includes electric costs. A very warm, clean and cosy wee holiday stay. Additional people may stay by pitching a tent in the garden for an extra cost pw per person.
This is a truly beautiful area to stay in all seasons. Whether you prefer hot summer days sunbathing by the Loch; long autumnal walks enjoying the stunning change of colour - spectacular beside the gorge; crisp winter days with heavy frosts and snow clad mountains; or the very long days of spring full of birdsong.
We look forward to welcoming you.More
The cottage itself is only suitable for 2 adults. If you are a single adult bringing 1 child, please contact us before booking. The garden is fenced, but the area beyond is not suitable for children, there is a gorge with a 100ft drop.
Please note: If 2 adults arrive with a child/children without prior agreement, we sadly will have to refuse entry.
We are very happy for guests to bring their pets and do not charge extra but please respect our Cottage and do not leave them unattended.

Foyers village is situated on the peaceful southern shores of Loch Ness in The Great Glen. The Cottage is adjacent to the dramatic Gorge where the River Foyers runs through from the stunning Falls of Foyers. Beautiful walks can be found in and around the area.
The area has ancient woodland of varied mature trees including Beech, Birch, Oak and Rowans. It also has a large population of Red Squirrels, well documented by the Countryfile team in February 2015 while following the footsteps of poet Robert Burns.
A car is recommended for travel unless planning to spend time enjoying local walks. There is a bus service from Foyers to Inverness providing 4 buses daily. Nearest train station is Inverness.
