Recently converted to a high standard Corrimony cottage is one of 3 holiday cottages available to hire and offers a striking open plan living area with wood burning stove and kitchen and dining area. The bedrooms are situated at either end of the property and bedroom one with its bath/shower room is easily accessible from the car park area and therefore suitable for less mobile guests. The second bedroom has an adjacent shower room. All rooms can be prepared as twins or superking.
Set in a peaceful location Corrimony is an ideal base for touring the North Highlands, the Great Glen, trips to the West coast and islands or if you are interested in walking, cycling, golfing or winter sports. Culloden Battlefield, Loch Ness, the sandy beaches at Nairn, dolphin watching from Cromarty or Chanonry Point, Aviemore and the Cairngorms, Cawdor, Dunrobin and Urquhart Castles are all within a short distance with the shops and restaurants of Inverness just 7 miles away.
This impressive barn coversion includes two other properties (1 bedroom) all set around a pretty courtyard garden and the farm is home to Highland cows, Shetland ponies, sheep, hens and ducks so we ask that any pets are kept on a lead.

The Scottish Highlands region
Nestling in the foothills of the beautiful Monadhliath Mountains in Strathnairn Corrimony cottage is just 7 miles/12km from the Highland capital city of Inverness and only a short distance from the world-famous Loch Ness.
The area has fabulous hills, lochs and rivers and yet is so close to so many of the Scottish Highlands' best tourist attractions - Cawdor Castle, Culloden Battlefield, the Cairngorm Mountains and many more. Ideally located for day trips to the Northern and Western Highlands or for exploring the splendid countryside right on your doorstep.
Strathnairn is steeped in history and heritage. The Gask cairn (one of the Clava type cairns) and standing stone in one of the fields as you approach Gask House Farm Cottages dates back 4000 years and you are welcome to walk up and enjoy these directly from your cottage. The area is renowned for its Jacobite connections and is set in the heartland of Clan Chattan - a confederation of clans comprising Clans MacKintosh, MacGillivray, Shaw, MacBean, MacPherson etc. It is said that some of these clans met at the Gask standing stone before the Battle of Culloden.
If you have an hour:
Walk up to the Gask Cairn and Clach an Airm (Gaelic for the ‘Sharpening Stone’) both believed to be meeting points of the Jacobites.
Visit the Clava Cairns near Culloden.
Drive via Loch Duntelchaig (Loch of the Snails in Gaelic) and Loch Ashie and view Loch Ness from the top – what a drive – what a view.
If you have a half day:
Walk the Eskers at Littlemill on the road to the A9
Visit Culloden Battlefield – the last hand to hand battle fought on British soil, visit Fort George built to fortify the Highlands after Culloden
Visit Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness
Climb Stac Gorm and visit Loch Ruthven RSPB reserve
Walk along the Dores pebble beach and have lunch at the Dores Inn – booking recommended.
If you have a full day:
Visit the North Highlands including Dunrobin Castle at Golspie – home of the Sutherlands
Follow on with a visit to the most northerly point of the mainland Dunnet Head, John o’Groats and the Castle and Gardens of Mey – the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother’s home in the far North.
Travel over to Ullapool and grab fish and chips watching the ferries, stop at Corrieshalloch Gorge on your way.
Go over to Gairloch, stop at Rogie Falls on the way and visit Inverewe Garden. Why not take a boat trip from the harbour and see some porpoises, seals and Basking sharks.
In the Winter months enjoy a day’s skiing up the Cairngorm or take the funicular railway or a walk up it in the Summer.
Whin Park, Inverness – from Easter and throughout the summer there is a sit on train running that the kids just love plus lots of climbing frames and slides. Also boats for hire on the small boating lake. Watch out for the seagulls though.
Nairn – enjoy the sandy beach, crazy golf and play area, good fish and chips in the town. Holidays like you remember as a child!
Landmark Adventure Park
Highland Wild life Park
