    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Situated within the small hamlet of Errogie in Stratherrick, with beautiful views over loch and mountain, the Old Schoolhouse has a wonderful atmosphere and is a perfect base to explore the Scottish Highlands and Loch Ness. Built in 1878, and a teacher's house for over a hundred years, the Old Schoolhouse adjoins the Old School (now home to the owners). It has been simply and tastefully modernised retaining much of its original character and sleeps four in one double and one twin-bedded room. A box-hedged garden overlooking the loch is for sole use of guests, while the rear garden, run as an organic small-holding, is shared by guests and owners alike.
    We are child-friendly, and as 'eco' as possible. The absence of WiFi, mobile phone coverage and TV reception makes for a q...

    Additional Location Information
    The Old Schoolhouse is located in the quiet hamlet of Errogie, in hills high above the southern shores of Loch Ness, with views over Loch Mhor and the Monadhliaths. Seventeen miles away, Inverness is within easy reach for shopping, theatre, cinema and leisure facilities. The area is rich in wildlife: pine marten, deer, red squirrels, osprey and divers are all seen nearby, while RSPB'S Loch Ruthven (for Slavonian grebes) is just down the road. With miles of tracks, quiet roads and forest, or the open solitude of hill and moor, there is plenty of scope for cycling and walking straight from the house. Why not fish from the loch shore, or visit Loch Ness and the Falls of Foyers via the ancient Pass of Inverfarigaig?

    The area is steeped in history, from Neolithic hut circles to castles and battlefields, and the property makes for a good base to explore further afield: the sands of the Moray coast, Cairngorms National Park, the Caledonian forests of Glen Affric, Skye and the west...

We adored our stay there! It was just what we wanted. Old cottage, lovingly restored in a quiet little village with view of the Loch. NO Internet or phone signal! Yup, what we wanted, and many do not. I hope the owners don't give in to people asking or it. It was nice to completely shut off and spend time... more

The MacLeods set the highest standards in both hospitality and luxurious comfort. The Old Schoolhouse in Errogie is an absolute must if you are touring Scotland. It is set overlooking the Loch Mhor and near fields with sheep, red-haired cows, peasants, and even deer. Since roads were recently repaired/enlarged, the trip to and from the schoolhouse should be even easier...

If you would like to get away from "it all" -- this really is the perfect place to do it!! The house is large with a great 'gathering' kitchen. The family that runs the self-catering is wonderful, the house is very welcoming, and the area that it's in, with planning as there's no wifi, is a hop-skip-and-a-jump from many great... more
