Why fiona denovan chose Northern Scottish Highlands

We love living at Holly Lodge with its wonderful architecture and cobwebs. Set on an elevated site overlooking the preserved Victorian Spa village of Strathpeffer.

It is in the heart of beautiful countryside and close to the wild west coast yet within easy commute of the city the Inverness.

What makes this cottage unique

We just love the architecture of the buildings here in Strathpeffer and that we are situated in an excellent base for going north west or east.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spent a few nights here at this cottage and enjoyed it. It makes a great base to visit the west coast and north east. Inverness is only a 30 min drive but we didn't want to stay in the city. Lovely walks from the cottage and it was well equipped. Thank s Fiona.

Wonderful place to stay, great location and views

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this cottage for a week during Christmas holidays. Fiona and her family are so welcoming. They shared their toys with our kids, offered DVDs. Cottage itself is very well equiped. You can find everything you need in the kitchen. We even found a ready made ice in the freezer that was very handy! You can also have duvets or pillows as many as you need for a good sleeping. Duvets and pillows are down&feather unless you ask otherwise so we had good nights. Very comfortable to park next to the cottage.

Fiona∧rew's respond in case of something goes wrong is just under a minute! Cottage views are just breathtaking, very beautiful garden even at winter time. Good location to drive to Inverness, Ullapool and other palces. We even managed to lose our way few times on purpose to enjoy wild nature!

We were also advised on places to visit.

My daughter has forgotten her teddies at cottage. Ans as it was too far to come back we asked Fiona and she was happy to send them to us!

We'll definitely come back next time! Probably in summer - to see a difference)))
