Very nice and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 9 people in the Peffer Lodge. We very much enjoyed our stay. The house is comfortable with a good equiped kitchen with a large table to sit and eat and a nice and cosy living room. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable to. On the third floor there is another sitting room we used as an extra bedroom. The garden is great and big. Strathpeffer is a nice little town. We used the house as a base from where we went to different parts of North West Scotland and Cairngcom to watch birds.

Peffer Lodge is ideally located to allow visitors to enjoy the many attractions and amenities in the area.

Strathpeffer offers a golf course that is open to visitors, and several hotels with restaurants open to the public: one, Mackay's Hotel, has a swimming pool available to non-residents.

The keen golfer can travel quite easily to the other courses in this area of the Highlands, including Strathpeffer Golf Course and The Royal Dornoch .Fortrose on the Black Isle is a good links course.

Fishing on the River Conon can be arranged by day permit from the Model and Tackle Shop in Dingwall.

Sandy beaches are just a 25-minute drive away on the lovely Black Isle, an area well worth exploring with its attractive fishing villages, wildlife park, horse riding centre and, most famously, the dolphins. The Moray Firth resident dolphins can be watched from the shore and never fail to delight children and adults alike.

Make it a perfect day by following your dolphin watching with a meal at one of the most recommended, award-winning restaurants in the Highlands, 'The Anderson'. Here you will find a menu which rivals many London restaurants, but without the price tag! There is also a malt whisky bar stocked with over 200 different malts and an excellent beer selection, including Belgian fruit beers and local organic real ales from The Black Isle Brewery.

Strathpeffer's old railway station has been renovated as a craft centre and the railway line as gardens. Wander down for the papers and sit out on the Victorian platform to enjoy a morning coffee at the station café. There is also a woodcarver, Museum of Childhood, sports shop and craft shop within the station.

The Peffer Lodge is just beside the access road to Blackmuir Wood owned by the Forestry commision. There are many lovely walks that include paths that itake you up to the summit of Cnoc Mor. Another walk will take you along the ridge to Knockfarrell where there are spectacular views over the valley containing Strathpeffer, over to Ben Wyvis, Castle Leod and down to the Cromary Firth.

There are also walks that take you to Loch Kinellan and Garvie Falls that have spectacular views.

This area is a mountain bike haven with an abundance of tracks and trails, specially created and challenging, just a couple of miles away from the house. In January, the gruelling 'Strathpuffer' event takes place on these hill trails - a 24-hour endurance race - regarded as one of the hardest in the UK. Teams attend from all over Britain and only the toughest survive!

Bikes can be hired from Square Wheels Cycles, telephone 01997 421000, which you will find in the village square. Bikes, helmets, trailer bikes and child seats can be hired from here and delivered to the house for your arrival. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable on cycling in the Highlands and can offer advice and maps.

For those who love the west coast, Ullapool and Gairloch are both less than a one-hour drive. Why not take the coastal route out to Gairloch, with its fine sandy beaches, visit NTS Inverewe Gardens, then back via Ullapool to enjoy a meal at the Ceilidh Place before heading home to Strathpeffer - just a 40-minute drive back.
