This award winning ‘home from home’ bed and breakfast accommodation is in a peaceful location accessed via a wooded entrance. Its elevated position benefits from far reaching views of world famous Loch Ness.

Within a short walk is the beach and the local, family run pub, Dores Inn. Plenty of areas of interest and things to do, can easily be reached by car. A car is essential to fully appreciate the surrounding area and a parking space is provided at the property.
