Slightly further afield is the beautiful Isle of Skye and the wonderful unspoilt scenery of the West Coast where you will find some wonderful restaurants to sample to local produce particularly seafood. From Skye, you can hop on to a ferry to the Outer Hebrides – a truly unspoilt part of Scotland with its rugged landscape and sweeping white sandy beaches.

We stayed here for a week this summer and would not recommend this property to others. The description of the house includes a lawn, which there is not, and a bbq, which the owners tell us they do not include and have tried to have this removed from the website. The furnishings are eclectic, the huge sofas look comfy, but are anything but. The kitchen is sparsely equipped with 6 of essentials, no baking trays, pans which are not compatible with the cooker and no sharp knives. The utensils supplied are cheap and not fit for purpose. A polite note requesting that we treat the property as we would our own, keeping a high standard of cleanliness is only possible if you remember to bring all of your own cleaning supplies, as there were none in the property. There wasn’t enough toilet roll to last a week. The central heating clock was not set to the correct date or time and the heating was coming on at 2 am, with pipes banging in the main bedroom each time it came on. This wasn’t however what kept us awake, it was the pack of hounds kept in the adjacent building. When we spoke to the owner, he offered ‘ reassurance’ that the barking and ‘singing’ all night was natural behaviour for this breed when looked after well!! Basically telling us nothing could be done to resolve this. They were fed around 6-7am when they barked loudly, so no need for an alarm clock if you can sleep! The house itself is big and airy, but has no outlook, excepting the 2 front most bedrooms. The large widows look out onto a concrete working area servicing the working barn a few yards away, these have no coverings so anyone working in the area has a good view inside the property, so remember a housecoat! All being said, the area of the estate has lovely walks, although not a lot of signage so we did end up retracing our steps at times. It is generally quiet, away from the working areas, with lots of wildlife to see. It is not really within walking distance of shops or cafes as the roads are narrow, single track with limited visibility, but only a short drive away. Having no Wi-Fi was not an issue as we had plenty data to use, but at the end of the week as people arrived for a local music festival, the signal dropped and we had absolutely no way of contacting anyone. The area around Beauly and Inverness is beautiful with plenty to do, if you have the energy

The cottage is lovely, it has everything you need except internet, although that just means you go back to good old fashioned conversation with one another . The only drawback was for the first two nights the dogs in the barn next door were a bit noisy, but that was sorted when we spoke to someone, it's a working estate so you expect there to be an element of noise.we couldn't get the DVD to work but think that's our lack of technical skills. This is our second visit this year, it's a great starting place to tour the north of Scotland with only a short drive into inverness. The beaches are beautiful, we did the one at the Black Isle, it was only about a half hour away. The kids loved Dingwall swimming pool as it was quieter than the big one in Inverness, they also went to the one at Golspie. The scenery is amazing. If you want away from the hustle and bustle of life I'd definitely reccomend Beaufort Estates cottages.
