Marnie’s croft is a modernized croft house, now providing 4 star self catering accommodation in a unique elevated location with magnificent views overlooking Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness. The cottage is in a very private and secluded location. The attractive garden is an added pleasure with quality garden furniture provided. Roe deer and other wildlife are frequently seen in the field right in front of the house. Walks on hill tracks start from the cottage door step and you can also stroll down to the shores of Loch Ness. The nearest pub is just 1 mile and shop 1¼ miles. It is in a very private location and an ideal place to unwind!
