Fox Hill Cottage description

Nestling in the idyllic woodlands beside the Allt Brieneag and Fechlin rivers, this homely, detached cottage holds large appeal to those who relish peace and tranquillity, combined with stunning scenery and the opportunity of watching the abundance of wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sika and roe deer can be spotted from the cottage, along with a large variety of birdlife. You may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the otters that play in the river at the rear of the cottage.

The property makes a superb base for exploring this beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands. From the cottage, you can take a short drive to Foyers, which is on the shores of Loch Ness, or visit the popular village of Fort Augustus, where you can watch the boats going through the locks of the Caledonian Canal. Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, is only 25 miles away, with the stunning Moray coastline just slightly further that’s well worth a visit to experience its stunning scenery, unspoilt sandy beaches and quaint fishing villages which are dotted along the coast.

Among the many activities available are walking and mountain biking for all ability levels, river and loch fishing, cruises on Loch Ness or the Moray coast, kayaking and other water sports, and golf, with numerous courses within easy reach. Brodue and Cawdor Castles, Culloden Battlefield and Fort George are some of the many historic sites you can visit. Further afield, take a trip to the beautiful West Coast, where you can enjoy the wonderful scenery and perhaps visit the Isle of Skye. A day trip to the Orkney Islands in the far north is well worth the effort. If it is a relaxing holiday you dream of, then sit back in the comfort of Fox Hill Cottage, where cherished holiday memories will be made. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
