Description from the owner
Situated within the small hamlet of Errogie in Stratherrick, with beautiful views over loch and mountain, the Old Schoolhouse has a wonderful atmosphere and is a perfect base to explore the Scottish Highlands and Loch Ness.

Additional Location Information
The Old Schoolhouse is located in the quiet hamlet of Errogie, in hills high above the southern shores of Loch Ness, with views over Loch Mhor and the Monadhliaths. Seventeen miles away, Inverness is within easy reach for shopping, theatre, cinema and leisure facilities. The area is rich in wildlife: pine marten, deer, red squirrels, osprey and divers are all seen nearby, while RSPB'S Loch Ruthven (for Slavonian grebes) is just down the road. With miles of tracks, quiet roads and forest, or the open solitude of hill and moor, there is plenty of scope for cycling and walking straight from the house. Why not fish from the loch shore, or visit Loch Ness and the Falls of Foyers via the ancient Pass of Inverfarigaig?
The area is steeped in history, from Neolithic hut circles to castles and battlefields, and the property makes for a good base to explore further afield: the sands of the Moray coast, Cairngorms National Park, the Caledonian forests of Glen Affric, Skye and the west.
