“Absolutely perfect escape”

Very secluded, modern yet cosy cottage in the Highlands. Wood-burner and abundant blankets ensure warm inside whatever the weather. Accessible by bus, with a bus stop adjacent, also has parking for the property. Although peaceful and secluded, it is within walking distance of cafes, small shops and an inn, and a 25 minute drive from a large Tesco. Plenty to do within walking distance, or within driving distance, including the picturesque Falls of Foyers, and plenty of Highland walking.
Not only is the cottage and location brilliant, the owners provide a comprehensive service - with well put together literature and instruction in the cottage itself, they make themselves available to answer questions during the stay. Additionally little things such as a welcome 'wee dram' and shortbread, board games and books for use were the cherries on top of our stay.
The cottage has everything we could have needed, and was the perfect break to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We will certainly try to return to Monty's.

“Home from home”
Reviewed December 23, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We loved our stay at Montys. The local scenery is stunning and the 3 of us were very cosy in the cottage. We had the perfect, quiet Christmas that we wanted. Montys has everything we needed including really thick, warm duvets with fleecy blankets and hot water bottles if needed. The shower and bath were both luxurious and the log burning fire topped it off. The nearest pub was a 10 min picturesque walk and the torches provided came in handy for the walk home! We loved our stay and hope to come back again one day.

“A beautiful arranged bolt hole spitting distance from Loch Ness”
Reviewed December 4, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed in this cottage during the October half term and found it very central to lots of day trips. The walk to the falls is pleasant and lunch at The Dores Inn is a must. We really enjoyed visiting Fort George, Erquhart Castle and Culloden Battlefield. The cottage itself is small but incredibly well thought out and decorated. A lot of trouble has been gone to in order to make this as cosy and easy to use as possible. There were games, DVDs, very comfortable beds and lots of snuggly blankets to sit under. We had our dog with us and the lack of fence around the garden was a bit of a problem but it just forced us to get out and walk her a bit more. I would recommend this place highly although be prepared that with a family of four, it is quite a tight space.

1st visit to Scotland. Stayed for 5 nights the cottage was lovely, has everything you need, beds were lovely!. Location is great lovely and peaceful, the falls 5 mins walk are well worth a visit. Good base for Inverness. Ate at the Dores inn food was delicious. Would stay here again.

“Relaxing and cosy cottage, perfect”
Reviewed October 23, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Montys cottage. We arrived to a clean cosy and very homely cottage. There was a nice little plate of shortbread and some complimentary whisky. The decor is gorgeous and the cottage is extremely well equipped. The kitchen had absolutely everything you could think to need including cooking oil, salt, vinegar and complimentary tea coffee and sugar. The falls of foyers are a short beautiful walk away and walk to the shores of Loch Ness are also within walking distance. Loved the location and loved the cottage.

“The perfect escape”
Reviewed October 2, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our stay at Monty's cottage was perfect and we were really sorry to leave. The shortbread and whisky on arrival was just what was needed after a long journey. The cottage was truly a home from home. Having WiFi was a real bonus allowing everyone back home to see all our pictures and get jealous about how beautiful loch ness is. I don't think we did one journey without stopping somewhere to admire the amazing views. The walk from the cottage to the falls of foyers then down to the shore of loch ness was lovely (if a little hard work on the way back). Cameron's tea room which was a couple of minutes walk from the cottage was also a favourite spot of ours to while away an afternoon watching the highland cows, the food there is very good and they also sell fruit and veg and some other bits. Visiting The Dores Inn is also a must, the views from there are incredible and the food is amazing. I could go on and on but in a nutshell Monty's is the perfect spot to explore loch ness and was so comfortable and had everything you could need for your getaway.

“Fabulously comfy cottage”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This cottage in the lovely foyers was perfect. We were overjoyed with the quality of everything provided in the cottage and my goodness there was everything you could wish for. The beds were the most comfortable we gave stayed in and the lovely gesture of a whiny tot and shortbread was very welcoming. The area surrounding Foyers was outstanding and there was plenty to do for all ages. Ben Nevis was a priority for us and was hard work but worth it, landmark adventure park was a great day out, especially if you like go-ape type of activities. Lots of sight seeing, castles and museums. We've never taken so many photos! Other than the long journey (which really wasn't that bad 10 hrs) this Loch Ness retreat was a fantastic base and an absolute pleasure to stay. We rarely leave comments but we would highly recommend this beautiful cottage and all it's luxury's.
