You can see why the Victorians flocked to elegant spa village of Strathpeffer, about 4 miles west of Dingwall near Inverness in the heart of the Highlands! It is a truly delightful place, with wonderful country round about. Just three miles away, at the end of a minor road, beside the 3000 year old hill fort of Knockfarrel, and standing quite alone, Red Kite Cottage is a traditional cottage which has been beautifully refurbished in a modern take on Highland rural style. From the new sunroom with its high vaulted ceiling, you can enjoy the glorious panoramic views and soaring red kites. Loch Ussie is just 500m away.
Strathpeffer offers tennis and golf, a delightful restaurant at the back of the pump room, good hotels and a chocolate shop to die for!
The road to Skye and the west runs through the village, and the fabulous glens Affric, Cannich and Glen Strathfarrar are all easily accessible, as is Loch Ness to the south.
