Woodlands is a charming traditional cottage in the scattered community of Dalcattaig close to Invermoriston. The cottage is in a beautiful woodland setting with grounds that extend to the banks of the River Moriston. The Great Glen Way www.highland.gov.uk/ggw/ passes the property and the village is within easy walking distance. Glenmoriston is famous for its beautiful scenery, setting in the Great Glen and proximity to Inverness, Fort William and Skye. Away from these popular centres though, the beautiful countryside remains unspoilt and tranquil, providing a haven for wildlife and offering excellent sporting and leisure opportunities. As well as the traditional rural sports of fishing, shooting and stalking, there are numerous way-marked walks and cycle trails and the Nevis Range Ski Centre near Fort William offers year round activities. Invermoriston has a shop with post office, coffee shop and a hotel. Fort Augustus, just a short drive away, has a good range of shops, hotels and restaurants and schooling up to secondary level, while Inverness, about an hour’s drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.Woodlands has been improved and well maintained by the current owners who purchased the cottage in 2019. Work carried out includes rewiring, upgrading of the insulation and the property has been refurbished to produce a comfortable and contemporary interior, whilst retaining some original features including wood panelling in the kitchen and a stone fireplace in the sitting room. The generous sun porch extension provides a further dining or sitting area.Full planning permission was granted in October 2019 for a single storey extension off the sitting room to create a kitchen/diner and also for the reconfiguration of the accommodation to generate a ground floor bedroom and first floor shower room. Details can be found on the planning pages of the Highland Council website using the reference 19/03641/FULThe cottage has been a successful holiday for approximately 20 years with very high occupancy levels and repeat guests. Bookings are handled through Unique Cottages and a local company manage the changeovers. The holiday business is available to purchase by separate negotiation and further information is available from the selling agents.
