The Old Stables

The Old Stables

The Old Stables is a 5 bedroom spacious and tastefully renovated holiday home only 4 miles from the picturesque village of Cannich, hosting a small store for picking up your basic essentials.

9 miles from Glen Affric, known for having one of the largest surviving mature pinewoods in the UK.

Only 8 miles from Drumnadrochit, the lively village with Loch Ness exhibitions, the Iconic Urquhart castle, Highland Riding Centre, Cruises up and down Loch Ness, small supermarket, chemist Post Office, craft shops and plenty places to eat out or simply sit and watch the world go by.

Of course Corrimony RSPB Reserve is a must for the wildlife enthusiasts amongst us with Way-markers leading to Loch Comhnard where sandpipers, greenshanks and sometimes red throated divers and ospreys can be spotted.

The property itself is situated beside a river running down from the hills, a forestry walk can be taken from the property and the peaceful and quiet surroundings are perfect for recharging the batteries and ensuring a relaxing and comfortable get away. The Corrimony Chambered Cairn is within walking distance and the St Curitan’s Chapel and burial ground next door are worth a look.

With the city of Inverness only 25 miles away, The Old Stables is the ideal location to travel around the Highlands enjoying some of the spectacular views whether visiting the West Coast, Ullapool being only a little over an hour away, the Black Isle if you fancy spotting a dolphin, if Nessie has alluded you, only 35 miles. Even a day trip to Skye taking you through some of Scotland’s finest scenery is only 100 miles away.
