From the owner

Mor Carraig is a traditional highland cottage, situated on an acre of grounds, with stunning views of Loch Ness and the mountains beyond. Dating back to the 1850's this cottage has been renovated and maintained to an exceptionally high standard making it the perfect holiday getaway for families and couples alike. Soak up the relaxed, friendly atmosphere of the Abriachan rural community with the knowledge that the amenities and convenience of Inverness, the highland capital, are only 9 miles away. Mor Carraig has a lovely cosy sitting room, perfect for a romantic evening by the open fire or for the family to enjoy spending time, just being together. Don't forget your bath salts and aromatherapy oils and experience the pure indulgence of sinking slowly into the large deep tub, leaving the stress of modern life far behind. The spacious, warm and comfortable bedrooms will welcome you to a perfect nights sleep and during the day you will be drawn to the splendid conservatory complete with lounge and dining furniture. There could be nowhere more perfect to have your breakfast and take in the magnificent views of Loch Ness. Morning Coffee will never be the same, enjoy a leisurely lunch or best of all, an evening sitting around the dining table with your family and friends chatting and at the same time being spoilt by the ever changing and never ending views. French doors from the conservatory take you to the garden, ideal for a relaxing afternoon, alfresco dining and the children will just love its freedom.

We have installed free Satellite Broadband with Wifi averaging speeds of 20-30 Mbps.

Owner's reply:
Thank you for your review and personal e-mail. We are disappointed you did not enjoy Mor Carraig as much as you have in the past. However, we feel it is essential we reply on the public site as future guests may well be concerned about their stay at Mor Carraig. With regards to the four issues raised in your personal e-mail. The leaking tap in the bathroom and the issue with the range will be dealt with and we always encourage guests to contact our manager, Gren, immediately should any issues arise during their stay as most issues can be easily resolved. The painting of the hall and replacement of the window panes which have broken seals were both on our general maintenance plan but were put on hold due to the current epidemic. In response to your feedback above, we would like to point out some of the maintenance and improvements we have made since your last stay in September 2017. We have replaced the low sloping roof at the front of the cottage, repainted the outside of the cottage, added new guttering to the steading, had the conservatory, bathrooms, kitchen and utility room repainted. Bought a new fridge freezer, TV and DVD, sofas, chairs and nest of tables in the lounge, sofa, chairs and table in the conservatory as well as a new bed and mattress in bedroom 2. We have also bought new towels and bedding and the washing is outsourced to a laundrette to ensure the highest standards. We are very attached and passionate about Mor Carraig and will continue with ongoing maintenance and improvements.
