Guestbook comments from the owner
Fodderty Lodge looked wonderful with the snowfall on Monday, which brought maire out out with rock salt and car scraper, the attention to detail that we have come to appreciate as standard................

...........The thread of the holiday though is not just a string of good meals, but a warm and comfortable base with aforementioned attantion to the little things. Once again, many thanks to Maire for your hospitality and your warmth.

Relaxing home from home

  • 4 of 5
Marie Kindly up graded us to the barn cottage due to a big family being in the cottage next door so unable to comment on the East wing appartment where we were due to stay, However the barn cottage was very cosy and comfortable with everything thing that we could possibly need during our stay wih a very well equipped kitchen and full library of books and DVD's

She was also very helpful providing us with all the local information that we may require for things to see and do on top of all the information that was left in the cottage for guests.

The fresh flowers from the garden were a lovely touch on our arrival.

Owner's Response: Glad you liked your upgrade Julie. At the time, it seemed to make sense to spread you out a bit, although it would have been absolutely fine for you to have been in East Wing as well. There is plenty space for everyone! Maire

Modern lodging with very friendly landlady

  • 5 of 5
The Lodge Barn is ideal for families with children. The landlady Maire is very friendly and will give good advices for your stay. The landscape around the lodge is very beautiful and ideal for hiking. It’s very central in the Highlands so that you can make day tours to the north, west south and east. I recommend this lodging and will stay willingly there the next time I will come to the Highlands.

Fodderty Lodge

  • 5 of 5
This is a story we should prefer to keep a secret for the best treasures we should guard for ourselves; however excitement for the sublime compels us to tell the tale. It's a story of three treasures, the beautiful and intoxicatingly comfortable accomodation, the wonderfully engaging and charming owners and a location to die for. To say more would be superflous; we will return , our only regret is the wish we had discovered this gem earlier.

Fodderty Lodge is the ideal 4* destination for a quiet self-catering holiday in the Highlands. Free wifi. Between Strathpeffer and Dingwall, it is perfectly placed for exploring the whole of the North of Scotland: Ullapool and the West Coast can be reached in under an hour, driving on some of the most beautiful and empty roads in Scotland; Inverness, with an excellent theatre, swimming pool and ice rink is only 20 minutes away; Glen Affric and Loch Ness will take just over half an hour. The surrounding area has much to recommend it: many castles and golf courses; whisky distilleries; local fishing; Culloden Battlefield; charming Highland villages (Strathpeffer itself is a Victorian Spa village); beautiful beaches and a well known viewpoint for seeing the famous Moray Firth dolphins. The bird watcher and nature lover will be thrilled with daily sightings from the garden of red kites. Surrounded by many stunning walks for all abilities; the Ross-shire Pathway Network passes the gate.

Other Activities: walking, fishing, golfing, cycling, bird watching, clay pigeon shooting, distilleries

Golf: There are many golf courses nearby: Strathpeffer 2 miles away has a beautiful, challenging and sometimes humbling 18 hole Highland course; the links course at Rosemarkie 15 minutes drive away is in a stunning setting, jutting out into the Moray Firth; the championship course of Royal Dornoch is a 40 minute drive, as is the championship course at Nairn. Castle Stuart, hosting Scottish Open 2011-15 is less than half and hour away.

Honeysuckle Cottage and Fodderty Lodge are the ideal base for a dedicated golfing holiday.

Ski: We are about an hour and a half from the ski centre at Aviemore/

Notes:
Lodge Barn is popular with small families or couples who wish to enjoy spacious 'open plan living'. Very peaceful. The cottage has its own area of garden, but the owners are happy to allow guests to walk about the entire grounds. Very strictly non-smoking within the cottage and grounds. The owners have two family pet dogs, a yellow Labrador and a West Highland White Terrier, friendly and beautiful dogs whose mission is to chase, but never catch, the many rabbits in the grounds! No guest may bring additional animals to Fodderty Lodge. Electricity included April -October..
