Eating In at Hazelgrove Cottage, Loch Ness
HAZELGROVE WELCOME BASKET
We provide a comprehensive basket of essentials to welcome you to Hazelgrove and ensure that you have the very basics for your first few hours in the cottage.
The welcome basket contains the following:
Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Milk, Bread, Cheese, Jam, Biscuits, Fruit, Sausages or Bacon and a bottle of wine. Also, not forgetting the doggie biscuit for any four legged friends!
Shops and Fuel
Hazelgrove is located 16 miles from both Inverness and Fort Augustus. There are a number of supermarkets in Inverness and couple of smaller foodstores in Fort Augustus. The village of Foyers is 2 miles from Hazelgrove and there is a small village shop and post office. Opening times and range of items available are a little restrictive in Foyers so you might prefer to head for Inverness if you have a larger shopping to do. Cameron’s Tea room and the shop at Loch Ness Shores camp site also have a range of tempting treats.
Foyers Stores is the closest shop for your essential items while staying at Hazelgrove. Just two miles from the cottage, there is also a post office and the Waterfall cafe where you can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.
As the welcome basket is essentially a “starter pack” you will want to do a larger shop to see you through most of your week at the cottage. Tesco Home Shopping Online is an excellent service you can use to save time and avoid having to stock up the car when you leave home. If you place your order a few days in advance of your arrival at Hazelgrove, you can choose a delivery slot once you have settled in and to suit your own timescale.
