Ardgarry Farmhouse was built in 1868 and was originally the home of the Stalker/Game keeper who was employed by the Ellice family to look after the vast Aberhalder Estate. One of his main tasks was to control the number of Deer, and leading shooting parties for the Gentry. Through the passage of time it became a small working farm "Ardgarry Farm" and eventually was sold off by the Estate in the 1950's.
Guest accommodation consists of a double en suite room housed within the farmhouse, having its own personal access door makes the room private from the rest of the house. There is also a twin-bedded en suite room situated in the Annexe adjacent to the farmhouse, the annexe is a separate building from the house which again offers total privacy for our guests. Both rooms have satellite TV/DVD & tea/coffee making facilities.
The Annexe is normally used as a twin en suite, although we can offer a king size bed for bookings in excess of 3 nights when booked directly through us..
