Highland Farm Cottages are set in 15 acres of farmland overlooking the stunning waters of the Cromarty Firth. Comprising a converted stone steading, or Scottish barn, with the addition of cottages built in keeping with the original buildings, these luxury cottages provide the highest standard of accommodation in a peaceful yet accessible location. The addition of a thriving farm shop and family-run restaurant in the nearby grounds make this ideal for families, couples and groups seeking a luxurious self-catering holiday with amenities close by. It is also on the renowned North Coast 500 cycle route which encompasses some of the most scenic and dramatic scenery to be found anywhere in the British Isles.
Walnut Cottage was built in the 1800’s and its original stone walls are two feet thick. It is named after six walnut trees in the nearby grounds and sleeps four in complete comfort, making it ideal for couples and small families. The living room has large patio doors that open onto the private courtyard garden; a wonderful spot to enjoy a morning coffee or evening dram as the sun goes down. There are two deep sofas, a 42" flatscreen TV, solid wood flooring and underfloor heating. The large kitchen/dining room continues the theme, with slate flooring and an exceptionally well equipped kitchen area and plenty of space for dining. Upstairs there are two beautifully presented bedrooms and both are en-suite.
Highland Farm Cottages are situated on the owner’s working farm in Mountgerald. There are sheep in the adjoining fields and chickens roam freely in the paddocks. The owners have built a thriving farm restaurant and shop selling good local produce. This award-winning family business is very convenient for visitors, being right on the doorstep, if you feel like a break from the cooking.
The nearby town of Dingwall, just 5 minutes’ away, has an excellent range of small shops, supermarket and facilities. There is plenty to see and do in the area. Within a short drive there are numerous places of interest with castles, historic sites and plenty of sporting activities. A trip to Inverness takes just 20 minutes, and flowing through the centre is the River Ness, with riverside walks and parks to meander and explore, and the city is dominated by the imposing castle right on the banks.
Take the route along the old A9 through the charming village of Beauly with its historic priory and unusual craft shops, and the road finishes at the famous Caledonian Canal on the edge of Inverness. The nearby Black Isle is well worth a visit and boat trips run from here to view the resident bottle-nosed dolphins which frequent these waters. The area is renowned for its sporting and outdoor activities, including golf, fishing, mountain biking, watersports and spectacular hill and mountain walking. Beach 16 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile, restaurant on-site.
