About the location


Inverness 20 miles.

Often compared to a Bavarian Mountain resort, the picturesque spa village of Strathpeffer owes its growth to the discovery of water springs during the 1700s, and was declared in 1819 to be the healthiest drinking water in Britain! The original Spa Pavilion has been magnificently restored after a period of disuse and now serves as a venue for a variety of events, including concerts, dances, dramas and exhibitions. The former Victorian railway station, which in times past brought many visitors from near and far, has now been beautifully restored to house craft workers and their shops, and is also home to the Highland Museum of Childhood. Visit the restored Pump house (also a Tourist Information point), take a walk along a forest track, or enjoy the views from the nearby pictish hill fort at Knockfarrel. Whatever you decide there's plenty on offer for all the family.

Wow! Your own little nature reserve. Excellent location, only sounds you could hear were the birds. First time we had visited the East coast of Scotland, lots of places to visit, lots of wildlife to see, including dolphins, will definitely be returning.

Mr & Mrs Peach, Hinckley, July 2013

The surroundings were wonderful, to sit at the lounge window and overlook the loch with all the birds and that sense of peace was amazing, especially for us townies!! The owners were warm and welcoming and the bungalow had everything we could have wanted and more!! A real treasure.

Mr Hendrick, Beckenham, May 2013

It was very quiet and so relaxing, and the views over the Loch and rolling hills are not like any I've seen in a long time.

Mrs McLeod, Kirkwall, August 2012
