Spacious house in a huge wooded garden extending to 7 acres, perfect for families, children and dogs, or couples wanting to escape from a busy city life! Close to the Glen Affric mountains and National Nature Reserve.
The house was a self build and family home for many years. It has a turf roof, mix of stone and wooden floors with underfloor heating and an open plan kitchen / living area with a wood-burning stove. There are three bedrooms: one with a king size bed, one with two singles, and one with a double bed and a double sofa bed. The garden is part cultivated with organic fruit and vegetables, and part wild, so a great space for children to explore. A hike up into the wood behind the house gives access into the Nature Reserve.There are any amount of walks and cycle routes to choose, from the door, or by exploring three spectacularly scenic local glens, Glen Affric, Glen Cannich and Glen Strathfarrar. There is also a table tennis table and BBQ and outdoor seating. A barn owl nest box just above the house, is occupied all year, and mwildlife is abundant around the garden. There is poor mobile reception but there is satellite wi-fi provided with a small 5GB allowance per week, enough to check emails, browse web a little and make phone calls.
Guests will have the house and garden to themselves, however dog owners please note that the garden is not fully contained by a fence.
Общение с гостями
I will usually greet guests on arrival and be available if needed, and can be contacted during the stay by email or telephone or text. I can also direct guests to local activities such as fishing, boat hire, pony trekking, bike hire, mountain guiding and outdoor activity courses such as felting, wool dyeing, and outdoor cookery.

Children of all ages are very welcome but please note that there is a deep pond and river in the garden and toddler guards are not provided for the stairs or wood burning stove. Linen and towels for 6 guests are included in the price shown. Internet connection is not always guaranteed and is limited to 5 GB per week due to the remote location. Guests are able to monitor their usage and are likely to run out of allowance quickly if they are not careful. The allowance is only suitable for: email and messaging, phone (without video), internet browsing without uploading and downloading video.
There is a strict no smoking policy in the house and garden. Please treat the house with respect and let me know of any accidental breakages. Dog owners will be expected to clean up after their pets or will lose part of their security deposit.
I love being outdoors and exploring new places. I also love being inside by the fire when its howling a gale outside and rain is battering off the windows.
We have a small dog which joins in with everything the family does so I know its important to be able to take the dogs on holiday with you.
