Spacious home with everything you might need to enjoy your stay. Conveniently near Inverness.

  • 5 of 5

A great opportunity to revisit a lovely area. The Cairngorms are within easy reach as is the Black Isle for Dolphin watching. There are plenty of restaurants in Inverness and shopping if you like that. Further afield but still a day trip, Ulapool, Inverewe and the Loch Ness countryside.

Lovely house in perfect location to explore the Highlands

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly located - in the middle of stunning countryside, but just a short drive to amenities in Inverness and very easy access to explore the Highlands including Loch Ness and the Cairngorms.

Vary comfortable holiday home

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and cosy house helped make our holiday most enjoyable. The very generous welcoming supplies of wine, cheese and bread (even treats for the dog) also helped. The house is very convenient for Inverness, Loch Ness, Aviemore, Cairngorm and the Black Isle as well as offering enjoyable walks right on its doorstep. Recommended.

Scottish haven from the hustle and bustle of Christmas.

  • 5 of 5

Larchfield is a lovely place to unwind and relax. The owner Allan has created a wonderful bungalow which has everything you need for a good holiday. It is very well equipped and the hamper with milk, etc means you can have a nice cuppa before unpacking and going to get supplies.

The position of the property is ideal, remote enough to be quiet but also close enough to Inverness for shopping. Inverness is a lovely city, with many nice shops, including lots of Tesco's, one Morrisons and an Asda to pick up essentials. Your dogs are catered for by a large pets at home next to tesco. Sainsbury's is out at Nairn, which is 16 miles east of Inverness. It is a nice seaside town with amazing beaches. We did live in Nairn for 6 yrs in the 1990's so know the area well.

Our trip was over Christmas and New Year and we couldn't have had better weather! White Christmas, and White New Year! We played in the snow with the dogs and even managed to build a snowman, but Milo the Boxer barked at him! There are even sledges for you to use, although we didn't give them a try, except to help clear the driveway of snow! Snowy walks with the dogs were the order of the day on Boxing Day. The driveway can get slippery, but Allan provided a good supply of salt to spread on it.

For dogs, it's a perfect holiday home for them. Ours go everywhere with us on holiday so it was great to find such a dog friendly property. Our Labrador, Ben and Boxer Milo enjoyed the forest walks straight from the gate! They too are catered for with treats, dog towels for those wet walks, and even bowls all provided!

The property is ideal for those with mobility problems. There are just two steps up into the hall. No baths but 2 showers and WC's which for us is ideal. Our party consisted of our 90 yr old father and our adult daughter and her partner so it has ample space for 5 adults!

The kitchen is very well equipped. Everything is provided for. The induction hob does take a bit of getting used to, but when you get the hang of it it's very much like gas, quick to boil and quick to turn down. The oven is also good, but we went to a local hotel, Waterside Hotel, in Inverness for our Christmas meal. I soon worked out the cooker and how to drive the hob!

Having the utility room meant we could keep the dog food, dog coats, washing, (which was a breeze with the washing machine and tumble dryer) out of the way.

I would recommend a trip to Larchfield, and would like to just say we will be back
