Druim Buidhe ("Yellow Ridge") is situated in an elevated position near Loch Ness, with fantastic views over the village of Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness and the Monadh Liath mountains. We are a rural location with a working sheep farm nearby and easy access for walkers onto the heather-covered hills behind the property. Druim Buidhe is a short drive along a farm track from the tarmac road.
Druim Buidhe is light, airy, spacious and modern. An open plan kitchen/dining/living area leads to the bedroom, which has en suite walk-in shower and toilet. The bed is UK king size. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and kettle, as well as a good selection of cooking pans, utensils, glassware and crockery (including cafetière and teapot). There is a TV, DVD player (including selection of DVDs) and free Wi-Fi. A thermostat controls temperature. From the loungers on the private outdoor decking area you can enjoy the stunning view. There is ramp access for wheelchairs or strollers.
Druim Buidhe comes with its own outdoor hot tub, for your exclusive use, which you can use until 10pm every night.
We welcome children. Please inform us ahead of time and, if need be, we can set up cribs, travel cots or rollaway beds, either in the bedroom or in the living room.
Our outdoor space is open, a bit wild and offers tremendous views and a surprising amount of sunshine given our location!
It is the perfect spot to get away from it all and enjoy watching the weather roll across the landscape or get straight out into the wilderness from the doorstep. We hope you can sit back, unwind and enjoy your stay in our beautiful surroundings.
Three other things…
1. Mobile signal can be weak and intermittent. However, our lodges have free Wi-Fi so you will able to stay in touch with the outside world (if you really want to!).
2. The property is situated in four acres of land, shared with the owners' home and a second holiday let, with a large, sloping lawn and some wilder areas, all of which you are welcome to enjoy. There is a small pond and an accessible stream that runs along one side of the property. There are also wood-stores around the property and large log-piles. All this provides a great place for children to explore. But we ask that parents please remain aware of the potential dangers and supervise their children at all times. In places, there is a steep drop down to the stream, and there is no fence.
3. We are next to a sheep farm with easy access to the hillside and would ask that walkers respect the countryside code (for example, leaving all gates as you find them and being sensitive to livestock, especially during lambing season).
