"River views and a wealth of glorious countryside combine to make this a wonderful setting for lovers of the great outdoors..."

Perfect for a relaxing break, Ness Castle Estate lies in the heart of magnificent game fishing and golfing country, and with lovely walking on the doorstep, it is an ideal location for nature lovers and sporting enthusiasts alike. River Lodge (ref SYYA) is a magnificent, detached, ‘Colorado’-style lodge providing complete relaxation and seclusion for larger parties. For smaller parties, Weir Cottage (ref SXXS) and Red Squirrel Lodge (ref SYYB) are single storey and adjoin one another, whilst spacious Ghillie’s Lodge (ref SYYC) and Benula Lodge (ref SYYM) stand detached. All have river views and are just minutes away from the city of Inverness. Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle, Loch Ness cruises and dolphin spotting on the Moray Firth are among the myriad of delights within easy reach. For those wishing to explore a little further afield the magical Isle of Skye, visiting the beautiful, romantic Eilean Donan Castle on the way, or a leisurely boat trip to the Orkney Isles which offer beautiful, rugged scenery with an abundance of wildlife and many archaeological sites make great days out. Whisky lovers can visit one of the many distilleries on the famous Strathspey Whisky Trail, sampling some of the finest whiskies in Scotland. At nearby Inverness, visitors will find a wealth of historic and cultural attractions as well as good shopping, bars and restaurants. Salmon fishing, by arrangement is 1 mile. By arrangement, guests also have the use of the shared steam room and small gym, both located at The Bothy.

    The cottage is so homely and set in a beautiful location in the river Ness. It is also a convenient distance from both Inverness and the airport. This is the perfect escape for a couple or small group of friends. It was so nice that my girlfriend and I git engaged at a nearby glen! The Dores Inn and Lockness are also worth a visit.

    A very well equipped, comfortable lodge in a great location with lovely views of the river ness. It is close to Inverness and the location means you are not far from numerous places of interest.

    Fabulous place run by a brilliant team. Certainly 5*. Everything top quality. Everything you could wish for and more. Only one disappointment internet unusable, not good if your relying on it for business. Otherwise perfect.

    What a lovely cottage in a superb location,we enjoyed a relaxing holiday in the cottage and taking advantage of the lovely riverside walks. The staff on site are so friendly and helpful and the grounds are kept in an excellent condition. We would love to stay here another time and take advantage of the easy access to a lot of places to visit.

    the only blemish to our stay was a noisy heating boiler by the back bedroom - to be fair, this only became apparent very late at night when everything else was quiet, otherwise we had a very pleasant few days and may well return in the not too distant future.
