We welcome you to Samhach, a one bedroom self contained holiday apartment in Gorthleck, a small village on the north shore of Loch Mhor near Loch Ness in Inverness-shire in the Scottish Highlands. Samhach is approximately 2 miles from Loch Ness, 10 miles from Fort Augustus and 20 miles from the vibrant City of Inverness which has a busy local airport with both easyJet and Flybe flying there from various destinations. There is an abundance of wildlife here with red squirrels, eagles, deer, pine martins and a variety of birds all on your doorstep and the local area is ideal for walking, fishing, climbing, birdwatching and wildlife. Or if you prefer you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the fresh air and scenery or cosy up in front of the wood burner. Samhach is a Gaelic word which translates as peaceful/tranquil which is something we have in abundance here! The accommodation which is attached to our own property is completely self contained with its own entrance and garden area. Samhach comprises of one double bedroom with en-suite shower-room and a large built in wardrobe, the living area comprises of an open plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room. Next to the kitchen and dining area there are duel aspect windows giving views over the hills towards Loch Ness, here you can enjoy beautiful sunsets during the evening. We offer free wi-fi and this is available to all our guests. The kitchen is equipped with microwave/grill/oven, gas hob, rotisserie oven, washing machine and fridge with a small freezer compartment, kettle, toaster, crockery, cooking equipment, glasses, cups, cutlery etc are all provided along with all linens and towels. The dining area has a dining table and four chairs and a telescope which is ideal for catching the odd shooting star as we have no light pollution here or during the day you can zoom in on the local wildlife. In the lounge area there is a 32' Flat screen HD television, Sky+ HD, DVD Player and IPOD docking station. We also supply some games and DVD's for you to enjoy. A woodburning stove means you can cosy up in front of the fire and we provide firewood and firelighters for this. We also have a sofa bed which folds into a bed settee allowing extra sleeping arrangements if necessary and would be suitable for 2 adults for a short break or for children. The property is surrounded by raised decking and there is a garden area for you to relax in the peace and quiet and take in the surroundings. Outside we provide a BBQ, garden table and chairs, a wooden bench and also a chimnea for those cooler evenings. We do allow 1 or 2 well behaved dogs which must be kept on a lead at all times due to the wildlife in the area. (And Nessie!) All we ask is that you thoroughly clean the apartment before you leave as we do not charge extra for pets. Don't forget the Loch Ness Monster is only a few miles away! For your convenience Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's deliver to Samhach.More

Also in Foyers is The Craigdarroch Hotel which has a bar which serves great food and had spectacular views over Loch Ness .
