Braelangwell offers very comfortable accommodation for up to 14 so it is an ideal choice for an extended family holiday. The house is large but homely and relaxing allowing everyone space to truly enjoy their holiday.

Braelangwell offers a true 'getaway' holiday! Breath-taking views are around every corner making it an ideal destination for those with a love of the great outdoors and an artistic flare. It is also within easy reach of the unspoilt North and West coasts which both offer wonderful days out. For golfers the house is ideally situated, from the Championship courses at Dornoch, Nairn and Brora to the local course at Bonar Bridge, there is something for all.

Braelangwell does not offer riotous night-life, rather it a place where you can enjoy time with your family and friends or colleagues and perhaps most importantly a place where children can be children! With that in mind we do not increase our prices for half terms as we believe that families of all ages should be able to enjoy their holidays together.

Further details indoors

Braelangwell provides extremely comfortable and relaxing accommodation for 14 people, although this can be increased to 18 at an additional rate. Downstairs there is a large, relaxing drawing room with open log fire, dining room and well-equipped kitchen; a utility room with washing machine, tumble drier and deep freeze, as well as a drying room.

In the west wing of the house there is also a smaller but spacious sitting room with an open fire, dining area, T.V. and DVD and the 'little kitchen'. This adaptable part of the house, with its own heating and water supplies, can be divided from the larger end providing cosy accommodation for smaller parties (maximum of 5 people) at a very reasonable price. Please contact the owner if you wish more details.

Upstairs there are six double and two single bedrooms. The master bedroom is en suite with a dressing room which can also be used as an additional bedroom suitable for a small child. There are three further bathrooms. All the rooms are comfortable and spacious with plenty of hanging space provided.

House keeping and a first class cook can be arranged if requested.

Further details outdoors

Braelangwell does not offer formal gardens, rather it allows nature to provide its own purity and beauty. There is a large enclosed flat area of lawn making a safe play area of younger children but large enough to play ball games.

A path from the garden leads to one of the most spectacular waterfall and pools on the River Carron.

The Caithness and Sutherland region

The Scottish Highland are the epitome of 'natural beauty' with a new and inspiring vista at every turn, majestic scenery one could never tire of. The variety encountered between the east, west and north coast is unsurpassed, from high rugged peaks and sheltered coves to the open flat peat lands of Caithness, from great cliffs to unrivalled beaches stretching for miles with hardly a sole in sight.

The Highlands also offer some of the most exciting and varied wild life in Great Britain and it is rare that a walk on the mountain, beach or by a river will be unrewarded.

The area is also steeped in history and each little town or village has something different to offer. To the north Dornoch and Golspie can be combined with a walk on the beach, a round of golf, some wonderful shops and a visit to one of Scotland's most magnificent castles - Dunrobin. To the south the beautifully preserved history provided by Portnahomack and Cromarty, which likewise can be combined with a fabulous meal at the Oyster Catcher in Portnahomack and a chance to see dolphins as they perform beside the two car ferry to Cromarty.

Ardgay

The opportunities for seeing wildlife are endless and mostly at Braelangwell's doorstep, a walk up the glen could be rewarded with the possible sighting of deer, eagles, otters and salmon to name but a few. Other recommended areas are the mud flats of the Dornoch Firth for the many species of duck, wading birds and osprey, the Scottish Wildlife Trust at Handa Island on the West Coast for its sea bird population and the Cromarty Firth for the chance of seeing dolphin, porpoise and wales.

Local crafts include Anta and Tain potteries and Highland Stoneware at Ullapool.

There is ample opportunity to satisfy those interested in historical sites. A visit to Dunrobin is a must and this can be combined with the exhilarating falconry display performed in the Castle grounds. Slightly further afield is the Castle of Mey, home of the late Queen Mother. At the end of the Glen is Croick Church, a haunting reminder of the Highland Clearances. For those interested in military history there is the newly refurbished Visitors Centre at Colloden, the site of the final battle for the succession of the throne and nearby Fort George conceived to put an end to the uprisings.

For the garden lover there are some real gems at Dunrobin and Cawdor Castles, the Castle of Mey and on the West Coast, Inverewe.
