Be woken by birdsong in this spacious, sunny, comfy room a few hundred yards from the Great Glen Way and with, in winter, views to Loch Ness. A warm welcome and the comforts of home await you in this quiet, secluded house 1.2km from the centre of Drumnadrochit.

The space

Cosy twin room upstairs under the eaves in large comfortable family house. With a stripped pine floor, it contains twin beds, bedside tables with reading lamps, chest of drawers, clothes hanging rail, well-stocked bookshelves and floor rug. There's a hairdryer and adapters for power plugs, and a kettle to make hot drinks when you want them. Heating pads are on the bed in case you feel chilly at night.

Two large velux roof windows face south with views across the garden and through the trees to Loch Ness, another window faces north over the garden to the wooded hillside behind the house. The bathroom just along a short corridor from the bedroom has a bath with integral shower, handbasin and WC. Standard toiletries - shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, handwash and handcream - are provided. Standard toiletries - shampoo, conditioner, bodywash and handcream - are provided.
But because this is Airbnb, if you forget to pack your toothbrush, toothpaste, contact lens cleaner, shaving foam, razors, emery board... there's a stock in the bathroom for just such an emergency.
Please note that the bathroom is shared with the other guest room.
The price quoted is for the room (for 1 or 2 people) and breakfast (see below).
The house is situated in a peaceful rural location, on a steep hillside with a large, mostly wild garden where you may see roe deer, red squirrels, hares and on rare occasions pine marten or a badger. Birdlife includes buzzards, sparrowhawks, goldfinches, flycatchers, longtail tits, pheasant, owls and much more. Highland cattle often graze in the fields beyond the garden. It's just possible to see Loch Ness from the garden and the house in winter; in summer it's visible from the top of the garden across the treetops.

Please download the directions to the house when you receive your booking confirmation.

Guest access

Free WiFi throughout the house, fast and unlimited. Two networks, one 2.4G, the other 5G, and usually fast enough for (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) conference calls or watching television on your laptop.

In fine weather feel free to stroll around the garden and sit on the benches in the sun.

Interaction with guests

I'm usually here during your stay (I love meeting people) to serve breakfast in the morning and chat - but if I'm away at a conference, I'll explain that before you arrive and tell you what arrangements I've made for your stay.

Other things to note

When you book, I'll send you a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maplink with full directions. It's helpful to study the locale on Street View. The postcode for the house is shared with every other house on the hillside and the house is not easy to find without the directions.

Jeannie's house is absolutely lovely and feels tucked away in seclusion near an enchanting stream and forest. Yet, we were able to walk to all of the shops and nightlife! The room I shared with my sister was spacious and bright and very cozy. Jeannie was a gracious host and made us feel most welcome, she had the best coffee and breakfast!

Jeannie was a very kind host and very kind enough to accommodate us with check in time. She also provided us a very good breakfast. I definitely recommend this place and will stay again.

Relaxing setting with lovely back garden to sit and rest a bit after a long day. Lots of nice walks in the area, including those in Glen Affric. My husband and I loved our room, the windows are perfect for letting in light and fresh air as well as blocking out unwanted light while sleeping. The entire house (and our room) is spacious and comfortable. We looked forward to crossing the private bridge with the lovely little waterfall each time we arrived/left the house. Would definitely return and recommend!

Wonderful hospitality from the host, Jeannie. My friend and I enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and cosy, with everything you need (even bath robes). The common area area very nice, and I love the breakfast area which was nicely orgsnised and a great place for conversations with Jeannie and other guests. The house is a little bit hidden from the trees and that gives you the quietness. Lock Ness is just right at the bottom of the house. Highly recommended! Jocelyn

Retired businesswoman and empty-nester, I love welcoming people into my home through Airbnb and helping them discover the Highlands of Scotland. “Live for each day”, said my grannie, and she was right.
