    - Yummy shortbread and fudge and even the dogs were looked after. This accomodation was booked last minute as our original booking was cancelled, and we were disappointed when our we were let down by another provider. However, 3 Strathanmore didn't disappoint. We enjoyed our stay in Strathconnon. The weather wasn't very kind to us there, but when we got out and about we did manage to escape the rain. Stunning wildlife and scenery from the door and there were plenty of walks if you wanted to be active, but we were there to chill. DVD player was well used in the evenings with our The Monarch of the Glen box set - just a bit more escapism! We've never been so aware of the Red Stag rut as we were here. The awesome sound of the stags, especially at night. We saw a red squirrel at next doos peanut feeder and some on the 'run' playing 'chicken' in front of our car when we were out. The spectacular waterfalls, autumnal scenery and beautiful colours will make this a wonderful memory in years go come. Along with the cosy, comfortable accommodation. This truly was a get away from it all experience. I'm sure we will return life permitting. Thanks for letting us stay.

The property

This pretty wooden clad cottage is tucked away into the village of Strathconon, approached by a scenic single track road, approximately 12 miles from the heart of Marybank.

The breath-taking drive follows the riverside through pine and mature woodland, opening to a valley with wildlife in abundance.

This one storey detached retreat invites you inside via the enclosed lawn and collection of shrubs, to set the tone for 3 Strathanmore Cottages.

The interior comprises of two wonderful bedrooms, including a front-facing double suite, and a twin bedroom, each with dual aspect, and a homely feel, to promote a good night's sleep.

Discover the country cottage kitchen and charm-filled dining room where you can settle down with your loved ones and admire the lovely outlook over the valley.

The lounge is just as inviting, a delightful haven to make the most of your downtime, with the warmth of the woodburning stove to elevate those cooler evenings.

A classic family bathroom finishes the properties interior to a standard of quality, and there is a vestibule area provided for coats and boots to be left.

Stroll outside to the enclosed garden with mature flower borders, or spend an hour or two in the rear garden with raised beds and a decked platform, with views leaning towards the hills and valley, with herds of grazing red deer on the other side of the fence.

The location is ideally placed for day trips to both the east and west coasts and fabulous beaches are just waiting to be uncovered.

On the Black Isle you can visit the local organic Black Isle Brewery.

The fishing and ferry port of Ullapool is well worth the visit, while Gairloch and the west coast offer views to the Isle of Skye, Harris and Lewis from beautiful white sand beaches.

Whale and dolphin cruises are available from the pier in Gairloch, a beautiful part of the country.

About the location

STRATHCONON

Marybank 13 miles; Muir of Ord 17 miles.

Strathconon is well placed for Ben Wyvis, and has great walks to remember! There is a wealth of wildlife in the area including polecats, red squirrels and stoats. The area is fantastic for bird watchers, in the location there are peregrine falcon, red kite, golden eagle, green woodpecker, siskins and treecreepers. From Inverness harbour there are boat trips on the Moray Firth to see one of the local dolphin pods, if you are in Rosemarkie you can also look out from the point as that is a good dolphin spotting area. Less easy to spot is the Loch Ness monster, but there are boat trips just south of Inverness where you can try your luck. There is a children’s play area at Drumnadrochit which can be driven to via the scenic route through Cannich, and the closest public swimming pools are in Dingwall and Inverness - the Inverness facility is larger with both leisure and swimming pools, the Dingwall pool is well worth the visit and the ice skating rink is near the Inverness pool.
