A warm Highland welcome awaits you at this holiday property, located in the Beaufort Estate. It enjoys a tranquil setting only a few miles from Beauly in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and without doubt, makes a super base for exploring the many attractions and activities this area has to offer. The cottage has been equipped and furnished to ensure as relaxing and comfortable holiday as possible, and it has its own individual character and style. You can explore the extensive grounds of Beaufort Estate with its abundance of wildlife, idyllic picnic places and easy walking routes and also travel further afield to experience some of the stunning scenery, interesting and historic attractions and a large variety of sports.
The popular village of Beauly is only four miles and offers a very good range of shops and restaurants with Inverness, the Highland Capital, just 12 miles. You can visit Culloden Battlefield and its interactive visitor centre, Fort George, Cawdor and Brodie Castles all steeped in local history or explore the picturesque fishing villages and beaches of the stunning Moray coastline. Take a boat trip and perhaps catch sight of the famous bottlenose dolphins or go to Drumnadrochit, which is set on the shores of Loch Ness, as well as Fort Augustus, where you can watch the boats coming through the locks in the centre of the village.
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 the 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. A day trip to the Orkney Islands is recommended where you can visit numerous archaeological sites such as Skara Brae, the Eagles Tomb and The Ring of Brodgar to name just a few. For the energetic and outdoor enthusiast, there are numerous mountain bike and forest trails, walking and climbing in the nearby glens of Strathfarrar, Cannich and Affric, golf with a large number of acclaimed courses such as the Royal Dornoch and Castle Stuart within easy reach. Snow sports are available in Aviemore, Glencoe or Glenshee. For the less energetic, sit back, relax, unwind and enjoy this tranquil setting which is Beaufort Estate.

The Retreat can be booked together with Dairy Cottage (CC511444), Checkers Cottage (CC511445), Duffs Lodge (CC511446), Kennels Cottage (CC511447), Mercy Cottage (CC511448), Rose Cottage (CC511449), Stables Cottage (CC511450), The Larder (CC511452), The Kennels Bothy (CC511451) and Nursery Cottage (UK5917) to accommodate up to 50 guests.

Lovely part of the country and great base for discovering the area. Missed to have the usual niceties a few wee treats on arrival and things like books, board games, games, garden toys. With the tv not working it would have been great to have some bad weather entertainment at place for the kids!

Quiet location which was lovely. Not very clean, cooker hood was grimy and no spare foil for the grill so once used, you were stuck. No wifi. TV didn’t work even after they came to fix it. No games and only a couple of dvds to watch. It said there was plenty of grounds to walk around but no signs of where you could and couldn’t go only sign said no unauthorised vehicles. Only able to get in at 5 and had to be out by 9am including stripping the beds ourselves was a bit much. Wouldn’t go again but fine if you want a proper getaway from it all and use as a base only.

We had a lovely week; the house is lovely and cosy, well equipped kitchen, beautiful surroundings and we will definitely come back to here or one of the other properties in future. My only criticism, particularly with a child in the house, was that there was only sufficient reception (freesat) to watch the television on one evening out of the week. I have no problem with that if the point is made so we can be prepared. Secondly, would be good to understand the routes available to walk on the estate; it is stunning but there are understandably a few signs stating no access but unsure whether this also applies to guests. Just a thought. Thank you though. It was truly lovely
