Welcome to Kerrow Cottage

Self catering holiday accommodation at Glen Affric and near Loch Ness

Kerrow Cottage self catering Glen Affric is a detached modern cottage at the entrance to the National Nature Reserve. It is situated adjacent to a working farm owned by the same family for a number of generations.  The well appointed accommodation offers all modern facilities to ensure that your stay will be one to be remembered. 

Glen Affric - the most beautiful Glen in Scotland and home to one of the few remnants of the ancient Caledonian Pine Forest is on our doorstep while Loch Ness home of the monster and Urquhart Castle is only a short drive from Kerrow Cottage self-catering accommodation. The Glen Affric area is popular with walkers and cyclists and the long distance trail the Affric Kintail Way passes a few hundred yards from the cottage.  

Strathglass is renowned for its natural beauty and wildlife that abounds within the remnants of the ancient Caledonian Pine Forest.....red deer, golden eagle, badger, pine marten, otter and many other species.  The nearby Glen Affric, Glen Cannich and Glen Strathfarrar with their quiet roads, forest tracks and waymarked paths are ideal for the outdoor enthusiast although if you prefer a more relaxed visit then simply chill and take in the fantastic scenery.

Local facilities in Cannich village, approximately 2 miles away include a pub, a cafe and a well stocked SPAR store/Post Office.

The nearby villages of Beauly and Drumnadrochit both offer excellent facilities for the visitor while a 45 minute drive will take you to Inverness, the capital of the Highlands. Kerrow Cottage is ideally suited as a base for touring further afield. 

Kerrow Cottage self catering accommodation is built on the site of an ancient township that was cleared in the early 1800s when the local clan chief, The Chisholm, turned out his kinfolk to make way for southern sheep farmers who could afford to pay much more in rent than his people that had occupied the land for centuries.  Many were forced to emigrate to the New World while others started new lives in the industrial towns and cities of the central belt.  There is very little evidence of the several hundred inhabitants who once lived here except for the old graveyard at Clachan Comar just a few hundred yards from the cottage.
