You get the best of both worlds here: Highland remoteness and Inverness just four miles away. The landscape surrounding this friendly cottage exudes a sense of ancient mystery with woodpeckers, red kites and deer in abundance along with some spectacular walks.
Araminta is a delightful host and her home has a lovely family feel; bedrooms are old-fashioned and cosy; the drawing room is snug with stove and books. Her Abyssinian cat, Bertie, likes to check out the contents of your car when you arrive – he’s so sociable and popular many guests try to smuggle him out in their luggage when they go… For breakfast Araminta gives you seasonal fruits and smoked salmon, a continental selection with homemade scones or a full Scottish spread.
Cawdor Castle and the gardens of Inverewe and Attadale are all on the doorstep. Return and meander along the mown paths around the garden and up through rowan trees to a viewpoint; sit back and enjoy the peace.
