    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.

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

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
