Stunning location and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

By far the best place I've stayed in a long time, we stayed with our 'extended' family, and there was plenty of space for everyone, with loads to do for everyone even toys provided for the children to play with. The garden is so peaceful and beautifully kept, the BBQ area was a highlight with us and the garden seating meant that it was a lovely place to spend our evenings. Plenty to do locally and nice eating places within walking distance. The views from the house are worth the trip, to wake up and look out over the Sea is just breathtaking. I highly recommend this house to all ages and all party sizes - the rooms are very large, it can easily accommodate 12 people. Thank you for a fantastic, relaxing retreat.

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here once before and this time was even more enjoyable and relaxing thanks to some great weather. The house is big and well-maintained with a well-equipped kitchen as well as games and things for the children to do. It is a perfect location for sight-seeing and there is a lot to see, most memorably Dunrobin Castle and the beautiful beach at Dornoch. We will definitely be coming back!

Perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house, very clean and spacious. We have stayed here a few times and will def stay here again. What made it for us was the snow started and the children had a great time building snowmen in the huge gardens. Would definately recommend it to anyone.

Invergordon is about 25 miles north of Inverness overlooking the Cromarty Firth and the Black Isle. It is a small town with good local amenities such as a supermarket, a post office, a modern and fully equipped leisure centre, various eating establishments and of course a pub. It is an ideal location for exploring the highlands with easy access to the West Coast and the central hill ranges.

Golf: The Royal Dornoch Golf club is about a twenty minute drive away. Others less well known in the area but open to visitors include The Invergordon Golf club which is a five minute walk from the house and the golf clubs in Alness, Muir or Ord, Strathpeffer, Brora, Tain and on Loch Ness to list but a few.
