Ivy Holiday Cottage to Rent

Short breaks can be very flexible for guests but once you have experienced this quintessential Crofters country cottage you will wish that you had booked for longer. 

In the traditional style of a Crofter's Cottage, Ivy Country Cottage has all the modern day comforts set in the most beautiful of surroundings.  Ivy Country Cottage has two floors with an entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room and bathroom on the ground floor.  Two separate staircases provide access to 2 double bedrooms one of which has an en-suite. There are entrances both front and rear to the cottage.

There are four cottages on the Estate in total which are all available individually or as additional accommodation to the Loch Ness Castle.  Furnished with the same care and attention as the castle the cottages are your typical chocolate box cottage, cosy warm, comfortable and absolutely charming.



Situated on the southern shore of Loch Ness only five miles from Inverness.  The nearest Airport, Inverness is approx 30 minutes away and the railway station easily accessible by car approximately 7 miles away.  Inverness is a wonderful  city to visit with the Cathedral of St Andrews in one of the most beautiful riverside settings (have your camera at the ready) lots of restaurants and shopping in the Victorian Market.
