3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Inverness, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
The Barn is situated on a small working family farm in the Highlands of Scotland. It's rural but situated close enough to Inverness and Nairn to enjoy townlife too. After a days' exploring return to the Barn to relax and unwind.

The Barn is one of three cottages in a u-shaped converted steading on our small working family farm in the Highlands. It provides comfortable accommodation and an ideal location to tour the Highlands - Loch Ness, Aviemore & the Cairngorm Mountains, Dolphin Spotting, superb golf, Inverness (10 miles) and Nairn (6 miles). Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle and Fort George nearby.
