Holiday Rental House
Pinewood Steading is a converted stone steading in the Highlands of Scotland. We are a Gold Award Member of Green Tourism, reflecting our commitment to a sustainable green business. We are set in 3.5 acres of mixed birch woods and pine trees providing a peaceful haven in a secluded location. A perfect place to get away from it all, to relax and unwind, to have a physical and mental detox from fast paced living, to connect with wilderness and nature. Pinewood is immaculately presented and well-equipped, with wheelchair access, and the underfloor heating provides warmth throughout the year. The main living area is open-plan with a wood burner and leads into a large kitchen which is bright with a large cathedral window, modern and well-equipped with wonderful views of the Beauly Firth. ...Pinewood Steading is a converted stone steading in the Highlands of Scotland.

The main living area is open-plan with a wood burner and leads into a large kitchen which is bright with a large cathedral window, modern and well-equipped with wonderful views of the Beauly Firth. The main double bedroom is particularly large, with a cathedral window, and a king size oak bed. It has a cosy seating area with a library of books, where you can sit for a while for some quiet time. The second bedroom can be either a twin or a super king. The bathroom is a very good size with a shower and bath and great views over to Ben Wyvis. Outside, there is decking and a BBQ along with garden furniture, so you can really enjoy those views! We allow dogs and do not charge extra but we request that you contact us in advance first please. There is no limit to dogs, but this depends on their size. Pinewood is only a 20 mins drive from Inverness, 35 mins from the airport, 10 mins from Beauly with it shops and cafes, and close to Loch Ness. We sit on the doorstep to some of the most spectacular scenery and mountain ranges, yet have easy access to local amenities. We appeal to walkers and tourists alike, with hill, mountain and forest walks nearby (Glen Affric, Strathconon, Abriachan, Reelig Wood), castles (Urquhart Castle, Cawdor, Dunrobin) and distilleries (Glen Ord, Tomich), or visit Loch Ness for a cruise. Come and enjoy the peace and tranquillity or pursue outdoor activities, coming home after a good day out to relax in the charm of Pinewood Steading. Short breaks of 3 nights from Friday to Monday; or 4 nights from Monday to Friday. Weekly breaks from Monday to Monday, or Friday to Friday. (Request a quote for short stays). We live on site, next to Pinewood Steading, but both properties are detached. We are two separate cottages and the Steading has its own private and secure garden with enviable uninterrupted views for miles. We can welcome you on your arrival if you prefer that, or we can leave the Steading unlocked for you to make your own way in. We are on hand if you need any help, questions about the Steading, or recommendations about the area. Similarly, if you want total peace and quiet with no disturbance, you will get that too!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect place to unwind!
This is the nicest place we have stayed in a very long time. Everything was perfect. The Steading was spacious, clean, comfortable and it had amazing views. The welcome basket and complimentary toiletries were lovely and we really enjoyed returning to the Steading at the end of our days out exploring, including a nice relaxing soak in the lovely bath with a glass of wine. The location is very convenient for walking and cycling in this beautiful area and even though our visit was in the middle of the school holidays, nowhere felt busy or crowded. We can't wait to return and would love to explore the area in the different seasons.

Just Stunning you won't want to leave.
This was our second visit to Pinewood and as soon as I walked in I felt like I was back home it is truly a beautiful place, flanked by stunning views. The accommodation is clean, well presented, tastefully decorated, warm and cosy. Our Labradors enjoyed the many walks near and far that Jane the host recommends, we climbed hills, walked through stunning forests and walked along a deserted loch. A trip North to Embo is a must, aqua clear, a vast sandy beach & mountain backdrop. In fact Pinewood is in a great position to visit so many places in the Highlands. We ate in every night and would recommend getting one of the supermarkets to drop off your shopping at the start of the stay, you have everything at the steading. The welcome gift basket was lovely & the dog biscuits where devoured by the dogs. Booked again for 2024. Thank you Jane, Jimmy, Mia and Emma xx

Our favourite holiday cottage
This is such a fantastic place to stay that I almost want to keep it a secret... We have visited Pinewood Steading twice now - and I was so sad that our second stay was coming to an end that I made sure to book our third before we left! There is so much that is wonderful about this place. The location, the view, the generous and friendly hosts, their fabulous attention to detail (you will want for nothing in the house), the fact that it is really and truly dog friendly and safe, the way it manages to feel homely and luxurious at the same time. We adore it. I'd be amazed if you didn't adore it too!

Charming house for the perfect vacation
We had a two weeks vacation at Pinewood Steading and it is quit simple to describe. Amazing ! The landlords are really friendly and helpful, also there folder for walks all around Pinewood Steading is amazing. We found each day a different hike in there, and found places we wouldnt have found by ower own. Its a great and charming house with everything you neet for the best vacation you can emagine. The garden is great with a good fence for the dogs, its loveley to sit there in the afternoon sun and relax.

Perfect.peaceful holiday
This is the cleanest, best equipped cottage we have stayed at. Everything is of the best quality and well maintained. The views from the windows and garden are outstanding. There is nothing that Jane,the owner, has not thought about in order to give a great holiday experience. I liked the way she was on hand if needed but not intrusive. The nearby village of Beauty has a great selection of shops where you could buy lovely provisions. The generous welcoming basket which was provided was brilliant in that Jane has sourced the best of local products. Very suitable for disabled guests . Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful accommodation in a stunning location
Our second visit to Pinewood Steading and already planning our next visit. The accommodation is superb, spacious and well equipped with lovely little touches everywhere. The fully fenced garden is ideal for the dogs to play in and the many birds, hares, Red Squirrels and other wildlife, coupled with views over the Beauly Firth and the hills beyond, all go to making this place rather special. The location is ideal for exploring the Highlands and the many stunning beaches that are a short drive away. Great walks and beautiful scenery surround the steading without needing to use the car. Jane and Jimmy are great hosts, never intrusive but on hand if you need some help or ideas. A great place to unwind an relax

They’ve thought of everything!
What a lovely place. We stayed for 10 days with our 2 beagles and it was the prefect little place for us…plenty of room and impeccably clean and tidy. Everything has been thought of by the owners Jane and Jimmy. As regular self caterers with the dogs we tend to pack our car with everything (including the kitchen sink it feels like) but having items like dog poo bags, kitchen roll, vinegar, ketchup and spices as well as cling film and foil and dishwasher tablets means we didn’t have to bring quite some much this time! Garden is well enclosed and large enough for the dogs to bumble about without getting bored! We were very lucky with the weather and has some lovely blue skies and double digit temperatures so we’re very fortunate, but experienced snow on the Nevis range thanks to the gondola and a very windy boat trip on Loch Ness trying to spot that elusive monster! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pinewood Steading to anyone looking for a lovely getaway in the highlands! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you so much for the fantastic review, we are really grateful! We've really tried to set this up as we ourselves like to experience when we go self-catering with our 2 dogs, so we are glad you found it useful too! Who wants to take olive oil on holiday LOL. Hope you are both well, and love to the dogs! Jane, Jimmy, Emma and Mina
