“It commands an elevated position on the edge of the idyllic village of Dores on the East shore of Loch Ness, around six miles south west of the city of Inverness.

“This magnificent home forms part of an exclusive development of only seven detached homes constructed in 2010 and enjoys far reaching views over the mysterious and beautiful Loch Ness and beyond.

“A gated driveway leads through the lush, landscaped garden grounds to the side of the house leading to the garage. Access to the house is through the entrance vestibule leading to a welcoming hallway. Internally the beautifully appointed rooms embody sophisticated style with carefully chosen furnishings in natural hues and tones.

In Scottish folklore, the Loch Ness Monster or Nessie is a creature said to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is often described as large in size with a long neck and with one or more humps protruding from the water.

Popular interest and belief in the creature has varied since it was brought to worldwide attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with a few disputed photographs and sonar readings.
