24 miles south-west of Inverness and 52 miles from Fort William, Bunloit Farmhouse is an extremely comfortable much-loved fantastically-sited house high above Loch Ness on a small privately-owned country Estate of 1200 acres. The house stands detached - tastefully refurbished and decorated - in its own fenced area of grassy grounds (garden furniture) - and it has THE most spectacular view right along the whole length of Loch Ness and across it to the mountains on the far side from its garden and south-facing front windows. Visitors may well be loathe to leave it even to drive down the few miles to the hotels, museums and small shops of Drumnadrochit (6 miles), or Fort Augustus (22 miles) - let alone drive further afield to explore the famous 'Road to the Isles', the Isle of Skye, Plockton, The Black Isle, etc.
Some other houses can offer the same wealth of possible excursions, but VERY few can offer a panoramic view such as this - a view which changes with every passing cloud, boat (or monster!) - or the ability to enjoy it quietly away from the madding crowd.
From 2012, in addition to its other attractions, Bunloit Farmhouse boasts new 'green' credentials in the form of wind-turbine electricity, so you can enjoy the house and its wonderful situation in the knowledge that your carbon footprint impact will be minimal.
Heating by electricity (£20 included) and wood-burning stoves (a supply of logs included). Bed-linen and towels are included. Pets by arrangement. Wi-Fi is available, subject to provider. Smoking is not allowed within the house.
