Coul House Hotel

Country House Hotel

Contin, Strathpeffer, Ross-shire, IV14 9ES

    The ancient Mackenzies of Coul picked a wonderful situation for this classic country house hotel, originally built in 1821 for Sir George Mackenzie as a traditional hunting lodge, its stunning views over the Strathconon Valley and Achilty mountains beyond, eight acres of mature woodland, private nine hole pitch and putt and unique octagonal dining room make it an ideal venue for a quiet getaway, small wedding or conference. Only 20 miles north west of Inverness, you can easily cruise Loch Ness, visit Macbeth's Cawdor Castle, even sail to the Orkney Isles and still be back in time for dinner!

    There are attractions and activities for everyone including the local Glen Ord and Glen Morangie whisky distilleries, fly fishing, clay pigeon shooting, stalking, rough hunts, world-class golf at either Nairn or Royal Dornoch and many other local golfing gems, hiking, biking, pony trekking and dolphin watching cruises.

    The Dining Room offers contemporary gourmet meals with an imaginative menu, often featuring Scottish game, local salmon and, of course, our homemade breads, pastries and delightful desserts.

    Coul House is the perfect place to base oneself to rediscover the romance and beauty of the highlands - certainly a destination where one should plan on staying for more than just a couple of nights.
