Spend a couple of weeks in a cosy cottage in the beautiful Scottish Highlands with two lovely small dogs
This is a remote but beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands. Own transport is essential, we are 5 miles down a single track road in one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland. It can feel quite remote in winter although there are plenty of neighbours (not too close) with 4WD vehicles if you need a hand with anything. Inverness is just over an hour's drive away, Fort William about 40 minutes. ASDA delivers so no problems with shopping and there is a petrol station and small shop in Invergarry (10 miles away!) with a few more shops, doctor's surgery etc in Fort Augustus, about 17 miles away.
Peaceful, perfect for getting away from everything, birdwatching, fishing, walking or photography. Looking at the map below the cottage is in Inchlaggan overlooking Loch Garry - the main picture is the view from the sitting room in spring.
Our Home & Location
Wooden bungalow, with two large bedrooms (one double, one double and single bed) and a good sized living room and kitchen with all appliances. One bathroom with shower over bath. Log burning stove (I will leave coal and plenty of logs and a contact number should you need more supplies), otherwise all electric (two storage heaters and various panel heaters). There is limited broadband available (fine for e-mails and web searches, although the signal can be slow). No reliable mobile phone signal in the house and variable outside but the BT line is available for your use. There is a gardener who cuts the grass every 2 or 3 weeks. The garden is large and enclosed but is on a slope although there is flat access to the parking area via a wide path and decking area.
Responsibilities & Pets
Two small female dogs, a westie (Tasha, 10) and a cavalier/shihtzu cross (Tilly, 8). They are both currently in good health other than slight arthritis (metacam is here in case it’s needed but they are usually no more than a bit stiff after a long walk or a long sleep(!)) Tash has dry eye syndrome and needs eye drops administered twice a day (she tries to hide but with a little gentle persuasion she submits without any fuss and certainly no aggression) and very friendly. Full details of current medicines and administration of them will be provided on arrival. There is a large garden so not essential they are walked every day as long as someone is here to feed them and let them out regularly. They can be left for 6-7 hours. They're not keen on the car so would prefer to be left at home.
