A communal family bathroom along the hall and into the open plan kitchen & living area providing a functional area for guests to eat, chat and relax with stunning views over the garden and the loch. There is also an additional shower room. In the colder months enjoy the warming glow of the log burning stove, a wee dram is optional!

Offering direct access onto the Loch, you can enjoy fishing for Brown Trout and Pike or take a leisurely paddle in your kayak or canoe around the endless waters of Meikle. (Rods and reels plus kayaks and canoes are not provided)

The surrounding countryside offers ample activities for those looking to get out and explore. Perfect for walkers and cyclists with endless miles of forest roads and trails, or for those looking to pursue the plethora of outdoor activities from horse riding to shooting and much more, or just enjoying some relaxing downtime on offer within nearby Drumnadrochit.

Outside you will find a raised deck with dining area and BBQ, perfect for sipping something cold (or warm!) whilst listening to the wildlife. After a hard day exploring, or just because you can, don’t forget to check out the outdoor hot tub, sinking into the bubbles and soaking away with the onward views across Meikle and beyond.


This stunning location is at the side of Loch Meikle, just over 2 miles from Drumnadrochit at the head of Urquhart Bay, on the northern shore of Loch Ness.

The village of Drumnadrochit is popular with Loch Ness monster hunters and provides a great location for exploring the Highlands. The village is surrounded by the glens, Glen Urquhart and Glen Moriston, as well as the Great Glen that reaches across from Inverness in the east to Fort William in the west. The area is rich in things to see and do with activities ranging from exploring Urquhart Castle, a classic romantic ruin jutting out into the loch, horse riding, cycling, cruising the length of Loch Ness and fishing trips.

The largest and best known loch in the Great Glen, Loch Ness is one of the most popular UK holiday destinations and attracts many visitors every year hoping to catch a glimpse of Nessie, the world-famous Loch Ness monster!

Visit the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition to find out about Loch Ness and the monster that (perhaps) lurks somewhere in its depths! The replica of Nessie may be the closest you get to the real thing, but visitors can also explore the spooky history of the facts and myths of monster hunting at the centre.

To locate the property, follow the A82 South to Drumnadrochit, taking the right hand turn at the “Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition” onto the A831. As you enter Balnain turn left towards the Balnain village hall and after crossing an old stone bridge, Kinloch Highland Lodge is the first property on the right hand side.
