Pets Welcome: 2 pets are welcome at the property free of charge. A charge of £10 per dog, per week will apply for any agreed additional pets.

ALL pets must be notified to and agreed with the owner at the time of booking.

Pet owners MUST clean up after their pets, both in the property and out in the gardens.

Please do not wash you 'doggy' things (towels, beds etc..) in the washing machine / tumble dryer as pet hairs are almost impossible to remove from these appliances.

Cleaning on departure: The property must be cleaned prior to departure and left in the clean and tidy condition in which you found it.
If due to unforseen circumstances you are not able to leave the property clean and tidy, then you should leave £30 cash on your departure to cover the cost of cleaning on your behalf.

If the property is not cleaned and the correct money left then you will be required to cover the cost of the entire clean up operation that we have had to undertake after your stay.

                          Riverside cottage is positioned on a quiet road on the edge of the village of Foyers. Foyers is located on the unspoilt south east shore of Loch Ness, approximately 16 miles from Fort Augustus and 18 miles from Inverness. There are delightful walks to the shores of Loch Ness, or via the forest and riverside trail to the famous 'Falls of Foyers'. Shop, restaurants and bars are within ambling distance. Fishermen can enjoy free river and Loch fishing in the area, for brown trout. The ski areas of Cairngorms and the Nevis range are only an hours drive away.


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: I live in Yorkshire, England with my husband, 2 children and chocolate Labrador, Barney. We both work but love nothing more than a trip to the Scottish Highlands to escape the 'rat-race' and relax for a while. From our very first visit, we instantly fell in love with the Highlands. The scenery is beautiful and the peace and tranquility are so relaxing. We love to go out for walks with the Barney, who in turn, loves nothing more than a run in the forest and a swim in the Loch! We love it so much that we've now decided it's where we want to live, so are currently in the process of relocating to the Highlands!!

                          Why the Owner Chose Foyers:
                          We'd holidayed in the next village for a few years running and fell in love with the quiet villages on the South East side of the Loch. We noticed this property for sale whilst driving past one day and instantly loved the location, and the potential it had! It's a perfect base for us during our visits to the Highlands, and was about as near to the shore of Loch Ness as we could get! As we don't get up to the Highlands as often as we'd like, mainly due to work committments, we decided we'd like to share our home with others wanting to visit Loch Ness, so decided to rent it out as a holiday let.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The background 'hum' of the Falls of Foyers pouring down the hillside whilst you're snuggled up in bed, is something to treasure forever - it's such a tranquil noise, and definitely helps to have a peaceful nights sleep!! The cottage could be a million miles from anywhere due to it's location on a quiet road at the edge of the village, but is still close enough to get to the shops etc... with a quick car journey. The snow in winter is magical!!!
