    “It’s a great wee cottage and a very handy base for our liking.”

    It soon became like home. Strathpeffer is a very unique place.

The property

A charming semi-detached stone cottage on an elevated site overlooking the pretty Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer, in the Scottish Highlands.

This well-presented and most comfortable cottage would suit a small family or a couple who will simply love the quiet and convenient location of this cottage.

Originally built as a farmworkers cottage, Rose Cottage has quite a bit of history and a lot of character.

At ground floor level the spacious sitting room leads through to a well-equipped and homely dining room and kitchen with a door that leads to a rear hallway with an external side door.

Make your way down the path and into the little sun room, away from it, just you and a good book!

The shower room and first single bedroom are also on the ground floor with a further two cottage style bedrooms on the upper floor.

Strathpeffer is a popular holiday venue due to its great central location as from here visitors can head west to the Isle of Skye and explore the fabulous west coast villages or perhaps head into Inverness, just 18 miles away, and savour the delights of the city.

Alternatively, why not take a trip around famous Loch Ness with a visit to the world-famous Urquhart Castle and dolphin spotting at Rosemarkie Beach being a short drive away.

However staying closer to your highland cottage is also a great idea and a lovely woodland walk starts right on your doorstep.

For golfers, a course is just a short walk away and fishermen have excellent local opportunities too.

Strathpeffer attracts many visitors, especially during the summer months when the local pipe band come out to play and entertain the visitors.

This is a great holiday location and this welcoming stone cottage ticks all the boxes.

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.
