Enrick Farmhouse has an ideal location in Highland countryside 2 miles from the village of Drumnadrochit (shop, PO, hotel, Loch Ness Visitor Centre, Urquhart Castle) – just a half-hour drive south-west down the side of The Caledonian Canal (boats for hire) and Loch Ness from the city of Inverness (supermarkets, shops, theatre, sporting facilities) and one hour from the famous West Coast resort of Fort William (all facilities). Easy access to The Road to the Isles and Mallaig (car ferry to Skye) to Plockton and the bridge to Skye; to points further north such as Torridon and to The Moray Coast and The Black Isle, all make this ideal for car-touring as well as walking, climbing, riding, golf, fishing, and skiing in Season, being just 50 minutes drive from both Aviemore in The Cairngorms and Aonach Mhor in the Nevis range.
It is set on a hillside above the River Enrick, half a mile from the nearest road making it particularly attractive for families with children and those with pets and is a substantial house - originally two farm cottages - which has been completely converted and refurbished to include modern comforts such as an oil-fired Rayburn for CH and extra cooking facilities and a wood-burning stove to enhance its warmth and atmosphere, but retaining some original slate-flooring, beamed ceilings and stripped latch doors.
It has its own private and secluded garden visited by a host of birds and roe deer, red squirrels, badgers and pine martens and there are delightful views from the large dormer-windows of the double-bedrooms to the birch woodlands which change colours and are carpeted with primroses and foxgloves in appropriate seasons.
Heating is by wood-burning stove and CH and hot water from a separate boiler within the new oil-fired Rayburn. Electricity, £20 of oil fired central heating, basket of logs and bed-linen and towels are included. Well behaved pets are welcome by arrangement. Smoking is not permited in the cottage. There is a sofa bed in the sitting room for an extra person (£50 charge). Wi-Fi is available, subject to provider.
