Fhaireag is in the hamlet of Wester Aberchalder close to Gorthleck in Invernessshire. The property is in a beautiful, unspoilt setting with stunning views to Loch Mhor and the Monadhliath mountains.Gorthleck 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 a ½ 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.The house, which was completed in 2010, has been built to the seller’s own design with careful attention to detail creating a highly energy efficient, easily maintained property with an interior that complements the surrounding countryside. The exterior is finished with maintenance-free Cedral cladding and the windows, doors, soffits and fascias are high quality PVC, while excellent levels of insulation, double glazing and solar gain ensure modest running costs.The open plan living accommodation is on the first floor to take advantage of the spectacular views, while balconies extend the sense of the living space into the landscape, while the woodburning stove creates warmth and atmosphere even on the coldest of days. On the ground floor are two comfortable bedrooms, one en suite and both with verandas; a shower room and utility room.Fhaireag has been a successful holiday let since 2012, managed through www.wildernesscottages.com. The property is available to rent all year round and achieves high occupancy levels of around 80% with many repeat bookings.
