Coul House Hotel - Strathpeffer

3 stars
Contin, Ross-shire, Strathpeffer, Scotland, IV14 9ES, United Kingdom, ‏‎1-877-214-4288

Secluded in the hills above the village of Contin, just 25 minutes from Inverness, Coul House Hotel in Strathpeffer offers scenic surroundings, fine-dining and a deliciously relaxing atmosphere. Originally built in 1821 for Sir George Mackenzie, this remarkably unique building is infused with the traditional charms of its historic past. This inspired atmosphere is further complemented by 8 acres of mature woodland, tranquil gardens and unspoiled views over the mountains and beyond. Having been sympathetically refurbished, the building is now a delightful family-run hotel and it takes great pride in its natural passion for hospitality. Both peaceful and relaxing, it’s the perfect place from which to discover the romantic beauty of the Scottish Highlands.

Specialising in contemporary Scottish cuisine, the restaurant has garnered an impressive reputation for its unique dining experience and ever-evolving seasonal menus. Garry the chef is something of a traditionalist, preferring to make his own breads, pastries, deserts and stocks for all his sauces and he even cures and smokes on site using traditional Highland methods. Committed to using the fine produce and ingredients, much of what is used is sourced locally, including fish from Billy McGlinn of Inverness based Highland Fish, meat from Campbell`s Prime Meat and lobsters and scallops from Dingwall based Keltic Seafare. The dining room itself is one of the grandest in the house and within its remarkable octagonal walls are an ornate ceiling, large black marble fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The property is located just a 15 minute drive from the A9 and 20 minutes from Inverness. What’s more it offers plenty of free on-site parking for all guests. Inverness offers excellent transport links and there is also a local train station at Dingwall, just a 12 minute taxi ride from the Hotel. For those flying in, Inverness Airport is just over a 35 minute drive away. Nestled amidst the rugged splendour of the North Highlands of Scotland, the Hotel’s privileged position makes for the perfect base from which to explore the area. With miles of wooded trails for hiking or biking, secluded lochs for kayaking or fishing, glorious glens with magnificent views, ancient forts and castles, gardens and galleries, boat trips, and battlefields there is certainly a plethora of things to do. There’s the magnificent Dunrobin Castle, the family seat of the Earl of Sutherland, the beautiful Rogie Waterfalls, Macbeth’s Cawdor Castle and Glen Ord Whisky Distillery. Of course for those who like to do a spot of monster hunting there is the world-famous Loch Ness.
