Description

Boasting the best views in the glen, Nan's Cottage is a detached property that sits in a stunning elevated location on the sunny side of Strathglass in the Highlands of Scotland. The stone-built former crofters cottage looks over a broad pool in the River Beauly, swathes of woodland and westward to the high hills of Glen Strathfarrar. An ancient appletree shades the off-road parking. The cottage is co-located with East Craigdhu Cow Byre (Property 977016) so allowing small groups of friends to take separate cottages should they wish. The owners home sits behind the cottage. It is well-suited to families and friends looking to escape to a tranquil, rural setting to relax. There are a myriad of outdoor attractions in the area, including some of the country's best hill walking. There are also opportunities for canoeing, pony-trekking, loch cruises and dolphin-watching boat trips. Options for low level walking amid waterfalls
and ancient woodland abound. The increasingly popular NC500 touring route is very close by. Enter straight into the delightful south facing sun room, with dual aspect windows offering superb views of the river, woodland and hills. It is a lovely spot to gather for a casual meal, a game of cards, or to discuss plans for your stay and to relish the breath-taking scenery. Inside the cottage is entirely modernised but retains the charm of a cosy stone built cottage. The high spec kitchen is ideally equipped for you to rustle up hearty breakfasts, wholesome picnics or a scrumptious evening feast. You can unwind into your evening in the sitting room with the lights dimmed and a toasty woodburner keeping you cosy and warm during the winter months and the 55 inch TV tuned to Netflix, Amazon Prime and a host of other subscription services. The ground-floor is complete with a large and wonderfully appointed shower room, while the two south-facing bedrooms and WC are reached up a short steep staircase. Both bedrooms have dormers windows with beautiful views. Guests of the cottage now also have a Scandinavian BBQ hut available to them free of charge. This recent addition is shared with the family and the Cow Byre. It sits on a deck with superb views over the glen. It is fully equipped with all the charcoal and BBQing accessories you might need. All you need to do bring your own sausages. This peaceful, countryside setting is within reach of the stunning Glen Affric National Nature Reserve, with its gentle lochs, haunting moorland and enchanting woodland where you can enjoy pleasant walks and birdwatching. The cottage itself will particularly appeal to wildlife lovers. Otters, many birds of prey, deer and many other species are regularly seen from the window. Nan's Cottage is just over 6 miles from Beauly, a pretty village equipped with a small supermarket, gift shops, restaurants, butcher, post office and much more. The increasingly popular NC500 route around the north coast of Scotland runs right through Beauly! The Highland Capital of Inverness is also just 16 miles away. A little further afield you'll find Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle, Rosemarkie Beach and Chanonry Point on the Black Isle (one of the best places to see bottlenose dolphins from UK land!), Culloden Battlefield, various distilleries including Glen Ord in the neighbouring town of Muir of Ord, and much much more. EPC Rating: Band D
Cannich is a Highland village that provides easy and direct access into the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve, a perfect location for walking, cycling and fishing. The village offers good local services including a grocery shop/Post Office and a pub serving food. The city of Inverness is also well worth a visit for its myriad shops, pubs, restaurants, Victorian market and historic castle.

‘The owners have clearly spent time making this renovated croft the ideal place for a peaceful getaway. Great attention to detail makes it a very welcoming place. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms (just watch out for cambered ceilings) and high-end finish to shower room. Welcome pack of fresh bread and eggs a nice touch - as was the welcoming committee from some very free range chickens who roam outside. Spectacular views down the glen. BBQ hut very quirky and great additional entertaining space. Croft well positioned for quick trip into Beauly with choice of restaurants/excellent deli/supermarket. Also great base for exploring Glen Affric and the West Coast - day trips to Ullapool and Plockton were highlights of our trip. We would highly recommend and fully intend to plan a return visit.’
