    “The property itself is in an extremely beautiful setting, private and secluded.”


    I would describe it as homely and relatively comfortable. The mattresses really could do with updating as we found them noisy and uncomfortable. General cleanliness of the property was a bit lacking and on arrival we had to wipe surfaces in kitchen and shower area before use. Previous reviews mentioned a welcome pack but we only found an already part used milk carton in the fridge and some bottled water for drinking use. All this being said the property is spacious and has an outside seating area. It is also well situated for many lovely places to visit. We would recommend and would return if we returned to the area.

About the property

Strathpeffer 4 miles.

A modern, detached bungalow situated in an isolated position, amidst the owners' rural estate, 20 miles from Inverness.

Enjoying uninterrupted views over Loch Tarvie, a stocked trout loch (fishing by permit only), this delightful accommodation is tastefully furnished and offers an ideal family base from which to explore the beautiful, surrounding Highland countryside.

A wonderful area for outdoor pursuits enthusiasts, Strathpeffer provides a popular base for walkers and climbers alike with many forest tracks and the popular Ben Wyvis Munro close by.

Take in the views at nearby Knock Farril, a pictish hill fort well worth a visit, or explore the Touchstone Maze, comprising 81 stones of various Scottish types set in concentric circles and offering a fun day out for all.

A great family base at any time of year.

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.
