About the neighborhood
The magnificent wildness; nature untamed. And the ever-changing light constantly repainting the landscape, from austere to picture postcard.

Loch Ness with its mysteries and legend. Quaint tales of Nessie. The sightings and that lingering doubt...what if?

All this and so much more. Yet, until now, it has been more than just remote. For most of us, it has been inaccessible apart from fleeting holiday visits.

But now there is a way to have all this literally on your doorstep. This could be your special retreat for as long as you like!?
