Ballindalloch Cottage lies two miles outside the hamlet of Errogie to the south of Inverness. The cottage, which is accessed from a private track, is in a totally secluded setting, providing a complete retreat within an unspoilt landscape of beauty and variety set between Loch Mhor and the Monadhliath mountains. Nearest neighbour is 1.3 km away.
Errogie lies on the edge of the Great Glen but distant from the preferred tourist routes along Loch Ness. Although both Inverness and Fort Augustus are just an hour drive away, this area remains peaceful and unspoilt, its dramatic inland landscape providing a haven for many rare species of plants and wildlife. The quiet countryside makes it an ideal area for cycling and walking, while the west coast, with its excellent sailing, is within easy reach. In addition, the area offers top class shooting, stalking and fishing.
Dores village, about 9 miles away, has a post office and popular pub and restaurant on the shores of Loch Ness, while there is a bus service from Errogie to the primary school at Stratherrick and the secondary school in Fort Augustus. Inverness has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.
Formerly in a ruinous state, the cottage was fully refurbished about nine years ago to create comfortable accommodation retaining all the characteristics and charm of the original property. The open plan sitting room and dining room with its open fire and doors to the garden is the focal point of the cottage, while the second reception room offers the potential for use as a third bedroom in addition to those on the first floor or office space.
The idyllic setting provides the ultimate retreat with the benefit of the excellent broadband speeds allowing for easy home-working. The potential also exists to erect a garden office in the grounds, subject to the necessary consents.
