The Scottish Highlands region

The Highlands are to Scotland what the Pyrenees are to France, with equally breathtaking scenery and fantastic opportunities for walking and mountaineering. Aviemore and the Cairngorms National Park are particularly famous for skiing, whilst Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain at 1343m, is a firm favourite for those seeking a challenge. For the less energetic, the Whisky Trail provides a unique way of exploring many of Scotland’s attractions and for quieter moments, there’s always Loch Ness and a chance to spot the elusive monster! Scotland also has some of Britain’s best and cleanest beaches. Not to mention the Castle trail.

The region is as varied as it is spectacular. The Moray Firth enjoys a particularly dry and sunny climate, making it ideal for outdoor pursuits and more leisurely activities. The area boasts spectacular coastlines as well as tranquil and picturesque inland landscapes, proximity to Inverness, Loch Ness and Cairngorm National Park, Culloden Battlefeld.


Nairn was delighted and somewhat surprised to appear second in a list of top desirable destinations for 2010 in a Trip Advisor survey. And yet, for those who live there it is not a total surprise. Nairn has played host to a number of new and exciting events over recent years and has been described as the Festival Capital of the Highlands.

But as you might imagine, Nairn has even more to offer. With its long, sandy, Blue Flag beaches and promenades it became known in Victorian times as the Brighton of the North. It's unique micro-climate ensures that it has more hours of sunshine and less rainfall than towns just 15 miles away. So it's a great place for a family holiday . You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding where to eat out with a range of fine restaurants to choose from.

Nairn is fortunate in having two championship golf courses, both set close to the shores of the Moray Firth. Together they provide a challenging and enjoyable test for all standards of players - from beginners to the world's top amateurs and professionals.The Nairn Golf Club was founded in 1887 and has hosted a large number of prestigious tournaments down the years. In 2012, the Nairn Club will host the ladies equivalent, the Curtis Cup. Its slightly younger neighbour, Nairn Dunbar Golf Club, was founded in 1899. Just down the round is the new Castle Stuart Golf Links, destined to become another world-class course. So Nairn is a major golfing centre and offers easy access to a further 30 golf courses within a hour's drive.

In addition, Nairn seafront also offers areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Culbin Forest and Culbin Sands Nature Reserve, where many species of indigenous flora and fauna can be seen, as well as a large number of summer visiting birds and migratory flocks. And for those who enjoy the invigorating sea air, there are magnificent views across the Moray Firth.

Overall, Nairn makes an excellent base for exploring the Scottish Highlands. The town is closely linked to the Battle of Culloden, the last land battle on mainland Britain. A trip to the visitor centre, 12 miles away, will give a fascinating insight into what happened to the Jacobites in 1745. Also close to Nairn are Clava Cairns, Fort George, Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Inverness and Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness. The Cairngorm National Park is within easy reach.

These are just a few examples of the many attractions in and around Nairn. Truly a relaxing place to visit with attractions to suit every taste. For more information look at the Visit Nairn website

"Super, comfortable,spotless , atmospheric"

We enjoyed a week's break with 4 children aged 13years to 7 weeks. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped and spotless. The place was warm and all the bathrooms were clean and had good showers. The living room was comfortable and the children enjoyed playing with the wooden train track (even the teenager). No wifi is probably a blessing in disguise. You then have a real break! The only minor inconvenience was the fridge acting as a freezer. I am sure this is easily rectified. The location is ideal for exploring the highlands and has a super beach closeby. Mrs Canavan was helpful and friendly in all her communication. Would definitely revisit with my mum in law who could use the ground floor bathroom.

We are glad that you and the kids enjoyed the Church Hall and found everything you needed. Sorry about any inconvenience caused by the fridge and will make sure it is looked at. Thank you for finding the time to write a review. Your comments are much appreciated.

"Could not have asked for a better place to stay."

Never having been to this area of Scotland before we had no idea about where the MacCleod Church Hall was or what it was like. The directions we were given were really easy to follow and we were there in about 20 minutes after leaving Inverness Airport. The actual facilities were superb for what we wanted as there were 6 adults staying in order to attend a wedding in the area. Having a good sized sitting room and a table to eat around was great. The kitchen had everything we needed and more - the dishwasher was an added bonus! Every bedroom was ensuite and one room had a bath which was much appreciated by one of our party who was pregnant at the time. I would thoroughly recommend this property to any one wishing to stay in this lovely area. Having one bedroom downstairs also was of benefit to her.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Your comments are much appreciated.

We were really impressed with the high standard, cleanliness and well equipped rental. Lots of extras such as chldrens' books and toys, beautifully furnished and decorated rooms, nice towels and sheets, and extremely clean. We will definitely try to rent the hall again the next time we are home visiting my parents. The only thing missing in the kitchen was a whisk - we Swedes do like our milk frothy for coffee, so a simple whisk would be perfect! Not a complaint, but there were always slugs in the living room or kitchen floor in the morning - there must be a hole somewhere they come in, possibly under the sink area?

Thank you for your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will ensure the property has a whisk added to the kitchen. I will look for the elusive slug again but have only found trails! We look forward to welcoming you back again.

"Fantastic, roomy property, perfect base for seeing North East Scotland."

A lovely property with lots of character and great, quirky fixtures+ fittings that both we + the kids loved! The property was well maintained, clean and warm. It was very well equipped, we were short of nothing we needed. A cupboard full of games and toys was well used and enjoyed in the evenings. There were plenty of places to eat and drink in the town of Nairn. The beach and park were lovely and clean, the locals friendly and helpful; a shop owner gave us a comprehensive list of things to do and see in the area. This was a great base from which to explore this beautiful part of Scotland .

We are glad that you and the kids found everything you needed, enjoyed the property and fabulous surroundings. I would agree about the cleanliness of the sandy beaches-fun for adults and children alike whether just enjoying a walk or being more adventurous. Many thanks for your positive comments.

"A unique property, well appointed and full of interesting artefacts."

Our trip was golf related. This area is second to none for this purpose and boasts many other attractions. The house has been well renovated and provides modern comforts in a classic building. The bedrooms are both spacious and comfortable with excellent en suite facilities. The size of the house affords more than ample accommodation such that you never feel restricted. We will certainly use it again.

We are glad you enjoyed your trip and appreciate your comments. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Maria and James Canavan.

"Highlands golf get away"

We used the Church Hall as our base for nine rounds of golf in nine days. It worked out brilliantly. Maria and James provide a friendly, warm and comfortable atmosphere to feel right at home in the wonderful Highlands. We hope to turn this into an annual outing. So many golf courses, so little time. We enjoyed the wonderful restraunts in Nairn but took advantage of the well appointed kitchen as well. Great accomodations!

You certainly made the most of the good weather. It was a pleasure to welcome you to our home from 'across the pond'. Look forward to seeing you again. Maria and James Canavan
