    Luxury Accommodation at Walnut Cottage
    Originally the western end of a stone built Highland Steading (Scottish word for barn), built in the early 1800s. The walls in this cottage are two feet thick and have been keeping the Scottish weather at bay for around 200 years.
    Walnut Cottage is named after the six walnut trees planted only fifty yards away. The walnuts from these trees were originally used for dying clothes long before modern dyes were available.
    This Steading was built by Major Colin Mackenzie and was converted by the current owners Kenneth and Lesley Mackenzie in 2009/10.
    Originally used as a grain and wool store the accommodation available upstairs now includes two double bedrooms. Both have en-suite bathrooms and the master bedroom boasts a balcony looking west with stunning v...

    Additional Location Information
    Highland Farm Cottages sit in the heart of the Scottish Highlands on the beautiful farm of Mountgerald. We are only 1 mile from the market town of Dingwall, the birth place of Macbeth and the capital of Scotland to The Vikings. We are 20 minutes from the city of Inverness. There are walks, golf courses, and mountain bike trails. You will find the finest rivers for fishing, magnificent moors for shooting and wonderful distilleries producing the finest whiskies all within 30 mins of your front door.

    The weather here is renowned as being dryer and warmer than most other parts of Scotland. As the majority of our weather comes from the West we are fortunate to be protected by a mountain range leaving us with a dryer, warmer climate. This combined with long summer days makes us a very popular holiday destination.

We came here as a family in October and stayed in Walnut Cottage. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, everything you could ask for or need was there and the owners were wonderful. The kitchen crockery was by Tain Pottery who were only 30 minutes up the road so we went there to see it being made. It is really luxurious... more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed in The Stables for six nights in August 2012. Can't say enough wonderful things about this propery. Spotlessly clean. Very large rooms. A wonderful welcome pack. Free wifi. Very quiet even though most of the other properties were occupied. A wonderful place to explore the highlands from. The view from bedrooms was magnificent. more

Stayed in the chestnut cottage last week , accommodation was immaculate and very comfortable . Beds were so cosy and had the best nights sleep there . Would be ideal for any family wanting a relaxing break in the Scottish highlands . Great little play area which my 4 year old really enjoyed. Having wifi was also a nice bonus.... more
