Situated high above the southern shores of Loch Ness, seventeen miles from Inverness and with beautiful views, the Old Schoolhouse has a wonderful atmosphere and is a perfect and peaceful base for exploring the Highlands.

Built in 1878 this was a teacher's house for over a hundred years, the Old Schoolhouse adjoins the Old School (now home to the owners). The area is rich in history and in wildlife: from hut circles and cairns to battlefields and castles; while pine marten, deer, red squirrels, osprey, Slavonian grebes and divers are all seen nearby.

With miles of tracks, quiet roads and forest, or the open solitude of hill and moor, there is plenty of scope for cycling and walking straight from the house. Why not fish from the loch shore, or visit Loch Ness and the Falls of Foyers via the ancient Pass of Inverfarigaig.

The Old Schoolhouse also makes a good base to explore further afield: the Moray coast with its sands and dolphins, the Cairngorms National Park, the Caledonian forests of Glen Affric, Skye and the west, Aviemore and the Nevis range with year round resorts for water sports, mountain biking and winter sports while Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, is within reach for shopping, theatre, cinema and leisure facilities.

The Old Schoolhouse has been simply and tastefully modernized to a high standard, retaining much of its original character.

Comfortable lounge with wood-burning stove, CD, DVD player and radio (note: there is no TV reception but there is a large selection DVDs, books and games). Views to loch and hills.
