About our home

Our home, steeped in history, lies a 10 minute drive north of the city of Inverness. The stone building pre-dates the 1746 Battle of Culloden and even claims to have had Bonnie Prince Charlie within its walls. Over the past decade, we have extended and renovated our home and outbuilding. The house itself is a mix of old and new with newly-installed wood burning stoves, a four oven aga cooker, a boudoir grand piano and an ecclectic mix of art, particularly by local artists. It sits in a two acre garden and backs onto a forest, perfect for easy walking with its many different trails. We are surrounded by wildlife, deer and birds of prey populate the forest and dolphins are often spotted in the nearby Moray Firth. There are several golf-courses within a short drive of our home and many tourist attractions including historic castles, both grand and modest. Loch Ness with its (in)famous monster is close by and the house is a good base from which to visit some of Scotland's best whisky distilleries.
