Kerrow House entered private ownership in the middle of the 20th century and the celebrated Highland author Neil Gunn lived in the property for a number of years, writing his final three novels whilst at the house. The plot is dotted with many trees and leads to the River Glass which offers miles of bank for trout fishing. There are many decent pools along the Kerrow House stretch, that you are permitted to fish for free. Riverside Cottage is set between the conservation village of Tomich and Cannich, so you’re in a spot referred to as the Gateway to Glen Affric which is well known as the most beautiful glen in Scotland. It’s an unspoilt wilderness with mountains, lochs, rivers and one of the best Caledonian pine forests in the country. You’re in a truly awesome place for a holiday.
For those keen walkers amongst you, being based at one of the Kerrow House properties, is the ideal place to be, especially if you want to bag some Munros. The Chisholme Bridge trailhead in Glen Affric is only a short drive away and from there you can summit five Munros. Further up the glen there’s a trailhead from Scotland’s most remote YHA that reaches a further three Munros. But it’s not just walking and fishing; It’s a great base to do more exploring of the Scottish Highlands. Loch Ness is only twenty minutes’ drive away, and the NC500 is just beyond historic Beauly.
It’s a historic property right by the river, and it has been lovingly restored and updated. The open plan living/kitchen/dining room is a treat with lots of natural light flooding in and the centrepiece is the wood burner. The two bedrooms are spacious and there is a family shower room. There’s also a private wood fired hot tub for you to enjoy, set within a maturing woodland near to the cottage.
