The Loch Ness region
Lewiston is a perfect walking, mountain biking and touring base, being close to the world famous Loch Ness and in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. There is also an excellent horse riding stables nearby, suitable for both beginners and experienced riders.
The City of Inverness is 15 miles away with shopping centres, cinema, tours and many other tourist attractions - see the official Inverness website for more information.
Crossroads Cottage is just half mile from the village of Drumnadrochit (with shops, a post office, hotel, restaurants, pubs, and the Loch Ness visitor Centre) and only 1 mile from Urquhart Castle - one of the top visitor attractions in Scotland overlooking Loch Ness, with it's own exhibition and interpretation centre. It is only about three quarters of a mile walk to the shores of Loch Ness for a picnic and some Nessie spotting in the famous Urquhart Bay!! Visit this excellent Drumnadrochit & Loch Ness website for details of the area.
There are also a number of high and low level circular hillwalks right from the cottage's front door. The Great Glen Way, the 73 mile long distance path from Fort William to Inverness, passes close to the cottage. This allows visitors to explore sections of it and perhaps complete it in stages if return transport is organised. Glen Affric is just a half hour drive away a veritable playground for serious Scottish Mountain walking.
Lewiston is just 1 hours drive from the famous West Coast hub of Fort William (all facilities) and Ben Nevis (the highest mountain in the UK). Here is access to Mull and Mallaig (with car ferry to the Isle of Skye) - and don't miss the world famous Fort William to Mallaig steam train journey of Harry Potter Fame!! From Fort William it is also a short drive to scenic Glencoe, Oban and Mull of Kintyre.
From Lewiston heading north west, you can access the breathtaking wilderness areas to the north such as Torridon, Gairloch, Poolewe, Ullapool, Lochinver, Kinlochbervie and Durness, these being some of the remotest and unspoilt areas of Europe and boasting some of the finest beaches and hill walking areas in the country.

Thank you both for a lovely review and congratulations on your special celebration - we'd have left a special bottle for you had we known! It is great to know that the cottage holds up for couples wanting to celebrate and also as a good central location for the Highlands.
We hope that you will return one day as we have some plans to redevelop the house now that it has been running for 5 years. We would love to exceed your expectations and that our changes will continue to be welcomed by our guests.
Wishing you both all the very best and thank you again for choosing Crossroads Cottage for your anniversary.

Great to read such a positive and informative review which will give confidence to people to visit the Loch Ness area...and hopefully Crossroads Cottage of course!
We are biased but the spot is a great location for touring the Highlands and most places are within easy reach for day trips whether it be Skye, Inverness or Caithness.
We are touched when we hear positives about the cottage and now that it has been running for almost 5 years, we have plans to enhance it with replacement equipment inside and some freshening of the decor...we hope you will be back sometime and can benefit from these works!
