A beautifully proportioned, architect designed home, in an elevated position overlooking the iconic Loch Ness.

Fernbank is an impressive architect designed home, commanding exceptional views from its elevated position in the idyllic village of Dores on the East shore of Loch Ness, around seven miles south west of the city of Inverness. Providing flexible, spacious accommodation arranged over two levels and built in 2004, Fernbank will suit a variety of purchasers from those looking for a spacious family home to those looking for a property with bed and breakfast potential.

The house is approached by a private gated driveway which leads to a graveled parking area. Entrance is via the vestibule, which opens up to a broad and welcoming reception hallway. This leads to a magnificent sitting room with large glass doors, flooding the room with natural light and providing lovely views over Loch Ness. The impressive specification includes Inglenook fireplace, brick surround, multi fuel stove and wall mounted lighting. There is a wc, an abundance of storage space, and the formal dining room, with hardwood floor, is ideal for entertaining. The heart of the house is very much the large dining kitchen/breakfast room which comes with a comprehensive range of hand built wall and base oak units, integrated appliances, Alpha range and Belfast style sink. The utility room is located off the kitchen and provides additional storage and space for white goods. There is a front facing double bedroom with en-suite, and a further bedroom/office to the rear. The rear vestibule/boot room gives access to the integrated double garage.

An oak staircase leads to the upper level and a bright and airy galleried landing which doubles as a reading area, and enjoys views over Loch Ness. There is a large linen cupboard and three delightful en-suite bedrooms, two of which are double aspect, a further bedroom and a family bathroom with jacuzzi. All of the rooms are beautifully appointed and in excellent decorative order.

This property has 0.5 acres of land.


The property sits in attractive landscaped garden grounds which are mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with flower and shrub borders. There is colourful selection of specimen trees and flowering shrubs which include rhododendrons, heathers, azaleas, laburnums acers and a number of fruit trees including apple, cherry and plum. Red squirrel and roe deer can often be spotted.

The driveway has ample space for several vehicles and leads to a double garage with remote doors, power and lighting. There are also some useful outbuildings which include a substantial timber lined and profiled sheeted shed/store, providing plentiful storage for wood, garden machinery and tools.


Combining the rugged beauty and timeless enchantment of the Scottish Highlands, Fernbank is only moments away from the iconic Loch Ness and is an excellent point from which to explore the Highlands. Dores is a popular, idyllic village and lies only 7 miles from Inverness making it the ideal location for the commuting client.
