The property

Bowater Cottage sits at the end of a private driveway, giving it that tucked-away feeling. The cottage has its own entrance leading into a small hallway and then into a modern kitchen. It has all the crockery and equipment you will need for a self-catering holiday. The lounge has floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the view while giving it an open and bright feeling. The French doors open up onto a patio seating area with patio furniture. You can relax and watch the boats on the loch, as well as the gannets, eider ducks and other bird life. Central heating is by a gas combi-boiler with instant hot water....
