The Scottish Highlands region

The Scottish Highlands are renowned for beautiful scenery, wildlife and historic monuments.

The Highlands have an abundance of mountains, rivers, lochs, beaches and sea cliffs. A wide range of outdoor activities are available from walking on the beach to paint balling. Something for everyone.

There is always something to do whatever the weather, with many Art Galleries, Castles and Museums to explore or just relax in cafes or retail therapy outlets in the city of Inverness.

Muir of Ord

Muir of Ord is approximately 12 miles from the city of Inverness and is on the western perimeter of the Black Isle, which is in fact a peninsula and is adjacent to Inverness. Its central location makes it an ideal location for touring the Highlands and Islands. Both the train station station and bus route are only a 5 minute walk for the bungalow.

The village has a selection of grocers shops, a butchers, pharmacy, bank, library, filling station, 2 churches and a Doctors Surgery. There is a chip-shop and an Indian take-away. Nearby are a fine selection of hotels and restaurants.

Ord Distillery which is located on the edge of the village welcomes visitors and offers tours during the summer months.

An 18 hole golf course is within easy walking distance of the bungalow and there are several others locally.

Fishing for salmon and trout, Sea Angling, mountain climbs and walks, bike runs and canoeing are only a short distance away.

Easily accessible attraction includes the Annual Black Isle show and lots of Highland games.

A 15 drive takes you to Lochness where there are boat trips on the magnificent Caledonian canal, a museum and Urquhart Castle.

For wildlife enthusiasts the area has a small wildlife park. a Dolphin and Seal Centre is adjacent to the Inverness road and the headlands on the southern edge of the Black Isle are noted as the best viewing points for the Moray Firth school of Dolphins.

"A very comfortable and relaxing cottage"

We found the bungalow to be very comfortable, relaxing and convenient. Goes without saying it is well maintained, clean and very approachable. After a very long and tiring day in the highlands, we looked forward to come back and just hit the bed and surprisingly even after just six seven hours sleep, we found ourselves to wake up fully charged up for another day. Did'nt realize 3 days passed in a snap and it was time to go. Liz and Gregor made every effort to make sure we had a good time and even covered the pond so that my little daughter was safe to play in the garden. Would definitely love to come back and that might not be far away in future.
