Situated in a peaceful location in the popular village of Drumnadrochit with views of Loch Ness, this setting is one of the most celebrated holiday destinations in the UK. Indeed, in a recent poll carried out by The RAC and Visit Britain, Britons chose Loch Ness as their favourite domestic attraction.

An Clachan enjoys an ideal country setting at the heart of stunning scenery where a peaceful, relaxing holiday is guaranteed. Centrally situated so that you can make trips to the north, east or west coasts returning comfortably each day - this is an ideal base for exploring the Scottish highlands. At the loch, one has a chance to glimpse ‘Nessie’, the world famous Loch Ness Monster!

Drumnadrochit itself boasts the historic site of Urquhart Castle, The Loch Ness Exhibition, tourist information centres, craft and gift shops, superb local eateries, post office and hotels. The location affords access to many of the most popular attractions in the area including The Caledonian Canal visitor centre, Culloden Battlefield, Glen Affric, Fort Augustus, The Whisky Trail, Nairn, The Black Isle, Aviemore, and the Isle of Skye to name a few. Magical lochs, gushing waterfalls and mysterious mountains are all a short drive away. The cottage is situated just 14 miles south of Inverness, the city in the highlands: attractions here include a castle, cathedral, museum, excellent shops, leisure centre, theatre and a selection of fine restaurants.

The area offers a wide range of leisure and sporting activities including hill walking and climbing with terrains to suit all, heritage and wildlife trails, birdwatching, loch and dolphin cruises, water sports, canoeing, golfing, horseriding, mountain biking, paragliding, hunting, shooting and fishing trips for trout and salmon. You can even be skiing on the Nevis range in less than an hour and a half’s drive from the cottage!
