An Darach B&B


Craigdarroch Drive, Contin, Strathpeffer, Ross Shire, IV14 9EL

    A warm welcome awaits you in our friendly and comfortable home from home, providing quality accommodation, peace, relaxation, unrivalled hospitality, and delicious wholesome breakfasts.

    An Darach lies in a delightful woodland setting, on a quiet no-through lane just off the A835 Inverness to Ullapool road, making it an ideal base for touring the magnificent splendour of the Northern Highlands. A paradise for lovers of beautiful scenery, birds, wildlife, walking, climbing, golf, cycling and other outdoor pursuits. Ideal for those wanting to get away from it all but still only a 20 minute drive from the many and varied attractions of the vibrant city of Inverness.

    An Darach is situated on the outskirts of Contin, which has a church, hotel restaurant, convenience store, garage and petrol station. Close by is the charming Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer, Rogie Falls, The Black Isle and countless other tourist attractions. There are numerous forest and river walks, with stunning views and an abundance of wildlife, almost on our doorstep. Regular wild visitors to our garden are red squirrels, pine marten, roe deer, red legged partidge and red kites and badgers. There is ample private car parking and secure storage for cycles, motor cycles and sports equipment.

    Whether your stay with us is for business or pleasure, we aim to make your visit a relaxing and pleasurable experience.
