Coul House Hotel

Country house in Strathpeffer
Image by Hostelworld

At Contin, south of Strathpeffer on the A835, Coul House dates from 1821 but has a light, airy feel in contrast to many country houses of this vintage. It's family run, and very cordial. Beautiful dining and lounge areas are complemented by elegant rooms with views over the lovely gardens; superiors look up the glen to the mountains beyond.

There's a fairy trail in the garden, forest paths for walking or mountain biking right on the doorstep, and a good restaurant. You can often find lower prices or multiday offers on the website.

Information from Hostelworld


Secluded in the hills above the village of Contin, just 25 minutes from Inverness, this family-run country house offers scenic surroundings, fine-dining and a deliciously relaxing atmosphere.

As befits a building of this age, all of the 21 en-suite rooms are wonderfully individual and come in a range of different sizes and shapes, this is also true for the en suite bathrooms. 18 twin/double and 3 singles. Four of the rooms are on the ground floor, the other seventeen are on the first floor up two sets of stairs.

All the bedrooms have en suite facilities with bath/shower combined, television, tea & coffee making facilities and beautiful views of either Strathconon and the mountains beyond or the rear lawn and mature woodlands.

We are looking to offer both contemporary Scottish cuisine that utilises local and international produce and ingredients, and also some more traditional favourites enabling us to offer a unique dining experience that should offer something for everyone’s palate.
