We stayed one night and were very impressed as soon as we arrived with the hotel, the room, public areas and the beautiful gardens. The food was perfect - all freshly cooked and presented well. Later on met the owners, Stuart and Susannah. They were very helpful in advising us about our trip. Highly recommend a visit to Coul House!

Anyone looking for a romantic, Scottish getaway, this is your place. The location is stunning, tucked away in the north of Scotland with only a short drive to dolphin spotting locations, salmon ladders, and a wee drive to Inverness. The building is beautiful and has great gardens that you can roam around in. The view out of the mountains down... More

Just stopped for dinner on way home from the west. Father-in-law's favourite restaurant when heading other way. Was late ,no booking, but thought it wouldn't be busy being a Monday night. Place was heaving, but no problem a table was set and had an excellent dinner. Nothing was a problem, even extra home baked bread with the meal at no... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of our 6 day tour of the highlands following the NC500 route and couldn't have made a better choice. The weather was fantastic which allowed us to appreciate the beautiful, well kept gardens. Plenty of space for dogs to round around, which are more than welcome. The hotel is well away... More

We were so pleased with our stay at Coul House. The rooms were excellent, the restaurant was great, and the area was quiet and relaxing. The hosts were there to assist with whatever you needed.We spent 2 nights here and if we return (hopefully), we will stay longer.

Coul House is a lovely little country house hotel. It’s almost half a mile away from the main road, so you are guaranteed a quiet night. Our room was nicely presented, and everything in the bathroom worked as it should. The free WiFi worked OK. The Drawing Room, Dining Room and the Bar have some very nice plasterwork. Service was...

I cannot say enough good things about this place. It was absolutely wonderful. We unfortunately got held up in Edinburgh renting our car and were several hours later than expected since we were driving up the the Coul House. The staff typically leaves at 11:00 PM but they were kind enough to stay around until almost 1:00! to make sure... More
