Full description

MacDonald Cottage is a derelict single storey stone cottage that has fallen into disrepair and the roof has partially collapsed. The cottage stands within its own grounds of about 0.24 acre or thereby. A short length of private road leads to the boundary of the land surrounding the cottage. Maintenance of this length of private road is shared with the adjoining landowner.

Planning permission was granted by Highland Council and work has started on the development and Highland Council have confirmed in writing that the planning permission is "live".
Copies of the approved plans prepared by Chris Davenport, Architect, Drumnadrochit, are available at Ballantynes office in Perth.


It will be the purchaser's responsibility to connect to the services. There is a supply of mains electricity adjacent to the site. Water can be supplied from a proposed borehole. Geological and geo-divining services have identified an accessible borehole site adjacent to the cottage within the boundaries of the property. Drainage has been planned to go to a septic tank with soakaway.


MacDonald Cottage sits a short distance away from and out of sight of the A831 road between the well known village of Drumnadrochit on Loch Ness side and the village of Cannich which is at the entrance to Glen Affric. The property is about 9 miles to the west of Drumnadrochit and 3 miles to the east of Cannich. Inverness is about 23 miles to the north east and Inverness Airport is about 32 miles away.

The cottage is therefore well placed for those looking for a charming rural location within easy reach of the popular and thriving city of Inverness. The tourist attractions of the Great Glen are close by and the National Nature Reserve of Glen Affric with areas of the ancient Caledonian Pine Forest is nearby. Inverness has regular train services to the south including daily service to London Kings Cross and an overnight sleeper service. Inverness Airport provides flights to a wide range of destinations including London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Amsterdam and Geneva.
