About Maire Lee
Mervyn and I returned to the Highlands after living overseas for most of our married life. Our three daughters are all grown up now but have always felt that the North of Scotland was 'home' and return often. We bought Fodderty Lodge in 2001 and our roots went deep and spread wide very quickly! It is in the middle of a wonderfully friendly area and even we were pleasantly surprised to discover just how accessible so many places of interest are. You can go North, South, East and West and will find exciting things to do in every direction. We have holidayed ourselves in many self-catering cottages, and have a very definite idea of what makes a Good holiday base, and what makes a Bad one! We hope that we make everyone who visits feel welcome in our special part of the world. The photo was taken from the top of Knockfarrel looking over Strathpeffer....slightly windswept, but spectacular!

Why Maire Lee chose Dingwall
Fodderty Lodge enjoys a rural location, but is still only 20 minutes from the small city of Inverness (the capital of the Highlands). There are theatres, restaurants, cinemas, swimming pools etc within easy reach. Dingwall, with shops and supermarkets, is only a couple of miles away as is the Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer. There are many walks around and golfing and fishing are closeby. It is a nature lover's paradise.
What makes this barn unique
Maire welcomes you personally and introduces you to your accommodation. She is on site should you require help or advice about places to visit whilst staying at Fodderty Lodge and has many local tips and real insider knowledge. There is a drawer full of tourist information, with suggested itineraries for you to get the most out of your days, but she will also leave you alone to discover places for yourself if that is your wish! The cottages have many 'extra' touches, books, DVDs, games, magazines, and there are even folding picnic chairs for you to use from your car during your stay. The Lees want you to leave at the end of your holiday with a positive feeling about Scotland, the Highlands and Fodderty Lodge.
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.
