The Shepherd's Hut at Knockbain offers quirky BED AND BREAKFAST accommodation. The traditional style hut is situated in the garden of the main farmhouse on a busy working farm on the outskirts of Dingwall, Ross-shire. With stunning views, the hut is a superb base for a Highland holiday.

The space
The Shepherd's Hut at Knockbain is a traditional style shepherd hut situated at the bottom of our garden, beside the pond and in amongst the wild flowers.

The hut has a sturdy steel frame and heavy duty traditional cast wheels. It is well-insulated and has an efficient little wood stove for chillier evenings. At 12 foot long and 7 foot wide the hut is compact but well organised to make the most of the available space!

The Shepherd's Hut is the perfect romantic hideaway but we are also especially well located for those on their way to or from the west coast, the Land's End to John o' Groats cycle route and the newly established North Coast 500.


Inside the hut guests will find a comfortable double bed with crisp white linen and electric blanket, a small wood stove, kettle, toaster and hairdryer. There is no wifi but 4G is available for most networks.

Guests will have exclusive use of the toilet and shower room which is to be found around 30 m away from the hut, in the entrance of our house. Access is available at all times. Towels and soaps are provided in the bathroom and washing and drying facilities can be found there too.

The area has a selection of eateries and more formal restaurants. The usual amenities such as a Hospital, Doctors' Surgery, Chemist, Bank, Supermarket, Leisure Centre and Petrol Station are all to be found in Dingwall (1 mile).

During your stay, if you find you need something, just ask us - whether it's a forgotten toothbrush, the use of a computer for holiday planning, restaurant recommendations and bookings, ideas of places to visit, we're only too happy to help.

Where you’ll be

Dingwall, United Kingdom

The Shepherd's Hut at Knockbain is on a busy working farm above Dingwall in the Scottish Highlands. This may mean that tractors and other vehicles are moving about the farm from early morning until evening, especially at busy points during the farming calendar.
The hut has stunning views across farmland, down the Cromarty Firth and of Dingwall itself.
25 minutes drive south will see you in the busy city of Inverness. An hour's drive to the west will give you access to some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery.
