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.

Location description from owner

The Loch Ness region

The City of Inverness which is the capital and gateway to The Highlands is situated 20 miles from Samhach. It has everything a modern city has to offer with many shops, bars and restaurants. Inverness castle overlooks the city centre and the River Ness which runs through the city.
There are many golf courses in the Inverness area, the most famous being Castle Stuart which is a links course and home to The Scottish Open.
One of the best spots in the UK to see Bottlenosed Dolphins, as well as porpoises and grey seals is at nearby Chanonry Point which is about 14 miles from the city centre.
Closer to the city is the world famous Culloden Battlefield where British, European and world history changed on the 16th April 1746, here a new visitor centre really brings the battle to life!
There are also many whisky distilleries in the area, one of the closest and highest being Tomatin Distillery about 16 miles south of Inverness which has a 4* visitor centre where guides will show you the whole distilling process and you even get a wee dram at the end!
These are just some of the attractions and there are many more places further afield to visit in the Highlands, too many to mention but some highlights include Aviemore (Ski Resort) Nairn Beach (Travellers' Choice® 2013 Winner) Applecross (amazing drive there and wonderful food at The Applecross Inn) Isle Of Skye (stunning scenery) and of course Samhach in Gorthleck!!

Gorthleck

We are situated 5 miles from Foyers where the Falls of Foyers can be found, this is a spectacular 140 foot waterfall in which the River Foyers drops down toward Loch Ness, here you will also find a village shop and café with a post office.
Also in Foyers is The Craigdarroch Hotel which has a bar which serves great food and had spectacular views over Loch Ness .

Another pub/restaurant is the Whitebridge Hotel situated in the village of Whitebridge, approximately 4 miles away.
The name Whitebridge comes from the bridge over the River Fechlin, constructed in 1732. This was built by General Wade as part of a military road in an attempt to suppress further Jacobite risings.

Many different types of activites can be enjoyed in this area including walking, cycling, hill-climbing, shooting, fishing and 4x4 off road driving. Amongst other attractions in the area are Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness with the Loch Ness Visitors Centre, Fort Augustus, Culloden Battlefield and Dores beach to name a few.

Another local restaurant/pub is the Dores Inn which sits on Dores Beach at the edge of Loch Ness. The Inn is extremely popular with tourists and locals and is located 10 miles away on one of the roads to Inverness. This is also one of the best places to view the world famous Loch Ness Monster or Nessie as she is known by locals!

Inverness which is 20 miles away has many shops, night life, cinema, restaurants etc, as well as many tourist attractions. The train and bus stations are located in Inverness, whilst the airport lies around 6 miles East of the City. There is a limited bus service to Gorthleck therefore we would advise guests that a car is essential, there are car hire companies located both in Inverness and at the airport.

“Wood burning stove, fresh eggs and picturesque scenery”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2013

As part of a week long tour of the north of Britain, Samhach was easily the highlight of our trip. The cottage surpassed all expectations offering a modern well equipped and clean environment in a tranquil setting right in the middle of the highlands away from the main roads. We were met on arrival by Graham who provided us with tips and places to visit close by in order to get the most out of our stay. The cottage came fully equipped with all kitchen utensils, BBQ on the terrace and a garden, also known as the highlands right outside our door. The log burning stove and full sky package rounded our days exploring the surrounding area. Will certainly be paying another visit on our next trip to the area. Many thanks Alex & Stephanie

“Samhach; the perfect holiday retreat.”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2013

Nestled in an idyllic and tranquil setting, Samhach offers all the comforts of home with the welcome addition of two extraordinarily friendly owners. Your every need is catered for; Sky+ TV, broadband Internet, DVDs and a fully equipped kitchen. If the weather is fair, there is ample seating outside as well as a fully equipped barbecue. The garden area is lush and the surrounding forest is teeming with wildlife such as deer. There is a complimentary bottle of the delicious Glenmorangie along with tea, coffee and sugar if you prefer a non alcoholic welcome drink. Everything is in immaculate condition plus Rosalyn and Graham are the perfect proprietors who offer both a warm welcome and friendly banter. The apartment is perfectly located with easy and direct access to Loch Ness, Inverness, Drumnadrochit and Foyers Falls. There are plenty of places to visit, with the option of perhaps just kicking back and relaxing in the quiet and tranquil apartment area. One word: Bliss! We will be back! Kim & David McAllister
