Sutherland Room

The largest of the four suites, the colours in the Sutherland reflect the purples and browns of the heather covered grouse moors in this sparsely populated area which sweeps across the North of Scotland from east to west.

One floor up, it’s very spacious, just like Sutherland itself, and has a large bedroom, sitting room (with integrated mini-kitchen) and large shower-room.

The kitchen has two rings, a microwave, sink and fridge with ice box. There is a kettle with tea and coffee making facilities. The apartment has a smart TV, hairdryer, electric heating (all electricity in the Highlands comes from renewable sources). We also have a selection of books and games.

An iron and ironing board are available on request.

Beauly facilities

Beauly itself is a traditional Highland village with lots of interesting, independently owned shops. We have a butcher and a baker, as well as a laundrette, chemist, post office and doctor’s surgery.

It’s a great place to use as a base for touring and lies on the North Coast 500. But there’s plenty to do in the village itself. The ruins of the Priory are well worth a visit and there are various walks around the village and along the River.

It is the first stop on the North Highland line, 15 minutes from Inverness. And from here you can take a train to Kyle of Lochalsh in the West or Wick and Thurso in the North.
