    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    Ivy Cottage is a cosy Highland croft house set above a working croft on the hillside between Dingwall and Strathpeffer at the foot of Ben Wyvis.
    The cottage has stunning panoramic views from the Grampian Mountains to the east across the hills to the south and west with Ben Wyvis to the North.
    The fully enclosed garden has a picnic bench and garden seat which allows you to relax outside and catch a glimpse of the local population of red kites swoop down on the croft to feed most days. Black grouse, golden eagles, red deer and roe deer can be spotted in the hills up above the cottage.
    At the bottom of the croft is a tourist viewpoint and memorial to the famous novelist Neil Gunn.
    If its peace and tranquillity you want from your Highland break then step out the back door and walk for miles...

We spent the Easter long weekend at Ivy Cottage and couldn't have been happier - we wished it could have been longer!

Management response:

It was a pleasure having you all at Ivy Cottage and seeing the children so involved in the busy lambing period made our day. Pity they missed todays excitement as the first totally black lamb was born on the croft. more

A wonderful place to stay. The cottage is beautiful, thoughtfully equipped and delightfully decorated with the most amazing views. The welcome basket was a lovely touch. Best of all though was the friendliness of Angus, the owner, he was so helpful to us. We felt like family guests rather than just holiday makers. The best holiday cottage we have ever... more

Management response:

It makes running the cottage so rewarding when we here that people have enjoyed their break at Ivy Cottage and they have been able to enjoy the stunning views and day to day life on a working Highland Croft. more
