This beautifully restored church lies amidst rolling hills and lush countryside in the stunning northern Highlands of Scotland.

Kirk House is an outstanding restoration of a former 19th-century Scottish Free Church. Built of stone, the exterior of this original Victorian church has been completely preserved, offering no hint of the incredible transformation within. Award-winning Scottish architects have designed an interior that has resulted in an ultra-modern contemporary space, which maximises light and height to create the ultimate in modern living. The main door opens onto an entrance vestibule, off which there is a wet room with a shower and toilet. The kitchen/dining room is open plan and has been completed to an exceptionally high specification, including two ovens, a 5-ring induction hob, two fridges and a coffee making machine. A feature wood burner in the dining area with comfortable chairs gives a living room atmosphere. A fascinating corridor with floor to ceiling shelving houses books, objects of art, vintage Scottish-themed comic postcards, and an extensive collection of carefully chosen DVDs. This leads to two beautifully presented double bedrooms and a well-appointed guest bathroom. Solid wood stairs lead up to the main living room. This superb room has a floor to ceiling window that drinks in the light and emphasises the height and space contained within. There is a 55” television and a desk for a laptop or map reading, to plan the next day’s excursion. The master bedroom is on this floor; a stunning room with a 6’ bed, dressing room and adjoining bathroom.
Kirk House is situated on the main trunk road that leads from Inverness in the east to Ullapool or the Isle of Skye in the west. Whilst not overlooked in any way, it provides easy access to the north, south, east or west. The surrounding area is well known for a wealth of outdoor pursuits as well as unspoilt scenery in all directions. Golf, walking, climbing, mountain biking, sailing, kayaking and fishing are all enjoyed locally. There are good local services in nearby Dingwall, Strathpeffer and Inverness, the capital of the Highlands. Beach 25 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 6 miles.

    Absolutely stunning place to stay. Beautiful surroundings and extremely clean and comfortable. You won’t regret a few days here. We had a week and certainly could have stayed longer.

    The house was palatial. Absolutely wonderful. We had the most peaceful and relaxing time there with lots of places to visit. The flowers in every room was really appreciated and the extra food/drink that Paul supplied us with was amazing. Too beautiful for words.

    Stunning house !! Amazing welcome pack of quality items. Would definitely return in spring or autumn. If we were to be picky lounge seats could be comfier, minor suggestion in a perfect home.

    We had a lovely holiday at Kirk House in Garve. The house itself is beautiful and is fully equipped and wonderfully comfortable. We loved the wood burning stove, the plentiful hot water for baths after days spent outside enjoying the lovely countryside. The welcome pack of food and drink items was much appreciated particularly the local cheese and bread which we then went in search of to buy to take home. Fresh flowers in every room was such a nice touch. Garve is a great location for visiting the north west and north east coasts. We played golf at Ullapool, Bonar Bridge-Ardgay and Strathpeffer, visited Dunrobin Castle which was a great day out, and climbed Munros. Local walks too were lovely. If we can we will return.

    We loved staying in Kirk House for the week. We arrived to find that everything we would need to get started was included as a welcolm, along with fresh flowers in every room. It was fun trying to work out all the modern gadgets in what is a very stylish and contemporary home. Don't be put off thinking that you don't want to stay in a church, as once you are inside you would never know as the conversion is excellant. We were very unlucky with the weather, so hope to return to Kirk House again in the future.

    We would strongly recommend Kirk house as the ideal place to explore the highlands. All the fixtures and fittings were top of the range and nothing was lacking. The owner, Paul is attentive without being intrusive and the welcome pack he left was amazing. The house was warm and comfortable and the bed especially was very comfortable, which is a must for us. The photos don’t convey how big or beautiful this house is, it would easily accommodate a large family or 3 couples. It is just off a road but this quietened down in the evening and didn’t cause us any disturbance at all. Whilst there is nothing very close to the house within a 20 minutes drive there is a large supermarket and a small town centre which is great for picking up supplies. The only thing I would point out is that most parts of the house have some stairs and the main staircase is quite steep so it wouldn’t be suitable for anyone with significant mobility issues. We would definitely stay again, in fact I was very sad to leave as the house was perfect.
