I stayed here with a friend on a sightseeing trip around the Scottish Highlands. Lovely surroundings, very comfortable, clean and a fantastic welcome! Sarah and the family are a delight to stay with and are always happy to chat and tell you about the sights and places to see. Special mention for the traditional Scottish breakfast which was very tasty!

The room was great and...

About the neighbourhood
Our area is perfect for a peaceful retreat - time slows down a bit! There are beautiful walks in Contin Woods, which are on our doorstep - we can tell you how to get to View Rock.

We also live very close to Rogie Falls. This is extra special in the summer months when you can watch the salmon jumping, but it is beautiful all year round! You can either walk or drive to Rogie, depending on how much the you have.

Loch Achilty, a famous spot for swimming, is less than ten minutes from our house by car. We often go for picnics or a swim.

Coul House Hotel is the closest restaurant to our house - it is within very easy walking distance. The restaurant is in an old Scottish manor an has a lovely, relaxed atmosphere.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Inverness Airport: 40.0 km
Railway: Dingwall Train Station: 11.0 km
Travelling in Scotland is easiest with a car - it allows you flexibility which the public transport does not provide. By car, we are half an hour away from Inverness and an hour and a half away from Skye. There is free off-road parking available at our house.

If travelling by train, the nearest station is in a town called Dingwall. You will then need to get a taxi (about £20) or bus (about £3) to our house.

If travelling by bus, catch the number 27 from Inverness or Dingwall. The last bus from Inverness which comes all the way to our house leaves at 6:00 PM. The bus-stop is at the bottom of our road - a 2 minute walk from our house.
