The Pole Cottages
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This cosy cottage is set in its own grounds, 7 acres of steep woodland. Great fun for rambling and watching the beautiful colours of the trees during summer, autumn , winter and spring . It is a cottage for all seasons. It comes with fishing rights to the mouth of the River Moriston. Fishing is a local speciality. The area is famous for salmon which are often seen leaping the falls. Some amazing photographs can be taken from the old Telford Bridge in the village. Since Victorian times this part of the Loch Ness has attracted visitors from all over the world and yet it remains to the visitor as though it is undiscovered. The village of Invermoriston boasts strong links with Bonnie Prince Charlie who passed through on his way to Skye. Castle Urquart is a short distance away and well worth a visit . Some have used the cottage as a base for touring, some fishing, some honeymooning, some photography, sightseeing, ski ing , tracing ancestors, touring the Nessie Trail, biking, Whiskey trails, and much much more.

|Further details outdoors|
A sweeping drive leads to the cottage which is set in 7 and half acres of steeped woodland.
The area is wild and unbounded and beautiful at any time of the year. Winter, spring, summer or fall.
Such a get away from the city. It is always hard to leave this place of romance and natural unspoilt beauty.
Many times deer will wander in the woods and sometimes make their way to the drive, a beautiful sight for the early riser.
Too, too much to describe.
Because the area is set in the Highlands we do not get TV reception, If it is necessary for entertainment we suggest you bring a lap top for your own internet use a dongle usually works. We have provided a DVD player and there is quite and extensive library of DVDs.
The area is wild and unbounded, there is a small , natural pond so you must decide if it is suitable for young
The Scottish Highlands region
Invermoriston & District
This beautiful village on the west shore of Loch Ness is a popular tourist resort as a good location for touring the Highlands of Scotland and walking the Great Glen Way. The village of Invermoriston’s main industry c1600 like so many Highland villages in the area was forestry, with a saw mill in operation c1640. Places of interest in the village include St Columba’s Well, Telfords Bridge and the Falls of Invermoriston.
St Columba is said to have defied the local druids by drinking from the well upon which they had placed a curse. The Glenmoriston Heritage group have built a viewing platform for this site.
The village expanded from 1813 with a new road system opening up, making access easier with the construction of one of Thomas Telford’s famous bridges, which was built over the River Moriston to help improve Highland communications. The bridge was started in 1805 and was completed 1813.
The River Moriston descends rapidly from a point just above Telford's bridge, but the Falls are best viewed from the old Summer House slightly downriver from the modern road bridge.
Invermoriston is just 6 miles north along the A82 from Fort Augustus and 26 miles from The Capital of the Highlands Inverness and 36 miles to Fort William. If you take the A887 from the village you can travel through the beautiful Glenmoriston and onwards to the Skye Bridge [which is only one hour by car] onto the famous Isle of Skye.
The centrally located Glenmoriston Millennium Hall, next to the main car park, offers a variety of activities and attractions throughout the year and houses the local toilets with the public telephone and bus stop close by.
Your base here at the very centre of the Great Glen gives you easy access to the best outdoor locations and sporting activities that the UK has to offer. Renowned for the scenery and the grandeur of the surrounding mountains, nowhere offers greater variety within easy reach than this trio of villages at the southern end of Loch Ness.
Up, Down or Hiking Around
Whether it's climbing the highest peak in the UK, or diving the depths of its deepest and most mysterious lake; sailing or canoeing some of the best coastal and inland waters in the world; trekking an enormous range of hills and glens; fishing the best rivers and lochs for salmon, pike or trout. We have coast-to-coast routes for feet, cycles and boats, and a wealth of welcoming accommodation along the way.

"Cosy, comfortable and very homely"
Spent three night here. Absolutely lovely little cottage. Kitted out with games and DVD's although you won't need them as there is plenty of things to do localy and wonderful views of Loch Ness literally on your door step. The log fire was a delight in the evenings, kitchen is modern and full of all you could need. Booking was simple and Dee couldn't have been more helpful and accomodating. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Please do return. The cottage awaits you. It is so kind when a guest takes the time to share. Dee

"Silcot Cottage - a perfect stay - we'll definitely be back!"
We stayed for 3 nights, so we could explore the local area and have a relaxing break. The cottage has it all - clean and homely, open fire, well equipped, and in a great private spot away from the hustle and bustle. We had busy days sightseeing and coudln't wait to get back to get the fire roaring and cosy down for the evening. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed the cottage too, with its large private garden to the side.
All in all, a highly recommended stay in the heart of Nessie-country, and we very much look forward to coming sometime.
You are very kind and welcome back anytime.
