Overview
Rental Home /
3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Strathpeffer, Ross and Cromarty, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Ivy Cottage is a cosy Highland croft house set above a working croft on the hillside between Dingwall and Strathpeffer at the foot of Ben Wyvis.
The cottage has stunning panoramic views from the Grampian Mountains to the east across the hills to the south and west with Ben Wyvis to the North.
The fully enclosed garden has a picnic bench and garden seat which allows you to relax outside and catch a glimpse of the local population of red kites swoop down on the croft to feed most days. Black grouse, golden eagles, red deer and roe deer can be spotted in the hills up above the cottage.
At the bottom of the croft is a tourist viewpoint and memorial to the famous novelist Neil Gunn.
If its peace and tranquillity you want from your Highland break then step out the back door and walk for miles on end enjoying the wildlife and you are unlikely...
