Oodles of space for big get-togethers... immaculate bedrooms upstairs and down, spoiling bathrooms, games room, a lookout and lovely owners

So grand is this 18th-century dower house that the Roosevelts spent their honeymoon here. New owners have embarked on an inspired restoration. The hall’s coat stand, umbrellas and vase of fresh flowers create the first impression; the daily housekeeper creates the second: this is a heavenly place to stay. Step into a big, warm, wood-panelled living room with sofas, logs, candles, flowers and an antique table that seats 14. On the lower ground floor are three bedrooms and a room for music, games and TV; on the first floor are four big bedrooms decorated in a mix of contemporary and classic style (fun hot water bottles, fabulous king-size beds) and a spiral staircase leading to a little room with views of the Cromarty Firth. The beautifully equipped kitchen lends itself to eating, drinking and chilling; bathrooms sparkle within an inch of their lives. Outside: six acres of wooded hills above whose trees eagles soar, and a bothy at the back where your charming hosts live, happy to share their local knowledge. Well-being treatments are a speciality!
