Black grouse, golden eagles, red deer and roe deer can be spotted in the hills up above the cottage.<BR>At the bottom of the croft is a tourist viewpoint and memorial to the famous novelist Neil Gunn. <BR>If its peace and tranquillity you want from your Highland break then step out the back door and walk for miles on end enjoyi...

A wonderful property set in a rural setting. Close to local amenities in Dingwall and Strathpeffer. Our host, Angus, went out of his way to make us feel welcome, including showing our three children the newborn lambs! Lovely welcome pack on arrival. Property very clean. Will definitely book again.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay and It was a pleasure showing the children round and letting them take part in the lambing activities. I missed them last night doing the feeding on my own!

The best value for money in the whole of Scotland, great central location, nice, well maintained house in the middle of the Highlands. Close to Inverness,strathpeffer,supermarket,distilleries, gas stations etc.Thanks again to The owners Angus and Fiona. They are very friendly people, concerned about you well-being during your holiday. No request is to much, not even Scottish premier league football tickets!

About the neighbourhood
If its peace and tranquillity you want from your Highland break then step out the back door (reliving the route Neil Gunn took for his daily walk) and walk for miles on end enjoying the wildlife and you are unlikely to meet another human being.<BR>On your return a 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk west will take you to the historic Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer with its vast array of hotels and restaurants or turn east to arrive in the bustling market town of Dingwall with its swimming pool, supermarket and takeaways supplying all types of food.<BR>If you are on a golfing break then the challenging Strathpeffer hillside course is only a 5 minute drive away and at least 10 golf courses are available within a 30 minute drive including the Castle Stuart course.<BR>Sho... more
