The cottage is small and has narrow stairs with a turn, the handrail is on one side only (right hand side for ascending)and as such it is not suitable for wheelchairs or persons with significant disabilities.

The bedrooms are situated on the first floor, and the bathroom on the ground floor – this arrangement may be unsuitable for some guests.

Outside offers a generous lawned and fenced garden with a woodland backdrop and extensive views out over the surrounding countryside, garden seating has been provided for you to sit and enjoy the garden and the surrounding landscape. We have added an outdoor drying area for wet weather clothing & boots, this area also doubles up as a undercover secure bike storage area and a quiet feeding zone for the wildlife, dusk till dawn lighting ensures it is suitable for wildlife watching from the comfort of the lounge. 

The bird feeders encourage the extensive birdlife the area has to offer. A wildlife logbook has been placed in the cottage to record both garden and local area sightings. Bird food and food for the pine martin, foxes and badgers can be purchased in Inverness, however as that is some distance we recommend you bring a supply with you. Our own supply of bird and mammal food is located in bins in the outdoor drying area which we are happy for you to use while stocks last, but we do appreciate you replacing it when possible.

The introduction of a Pine Marten nest box will be new for 2021 and will benefit from a viewing camera accessed by a mobile phone app.
