Local Amenities
Along with its beautiful Victorian architecture, cafes, restaurants, gift-shops, bicycle shop (bike hire available), museums, tourist information and 18 hole golf course, Strathpeffer also has a small well stocked grocery shop and post-office and a small deli. The nearest supermarkets are in Dingwall , 5 miles away, and are open until 12pm or you could arrange to have your groceries delivered from Tesco, Sainsbury or Asda supermarkets for your arrival.
Activities
There's plenty of walks and cycling routes to enjoy around Strathpeffer offering fantastic views of Mid-Ross & Cromarty. From mountains, beaches, ancient Pictish standing stones, outdoor adventure activities, the Loch Ness Monster, castles, whisky distilleries and micro-breweries, hill-walking, fishing, sailing, dolphins, golden eagles, ospreys and red kites, golfing, wild-flowers, lochs, islands and sunsets - if it's not right on our doorstep it's all easily reached within an hours drive or less.

Loch Ness, BlackIsle Peninsula, Moray Firth, West Coast, Gairloch, Applecross, Ullapool, Inverness, Dornoch, Nairn, Aviemore, Cairngorm National Park, John O'Groats, Thurso, Cape Wrath, Isle of Skye, Fort William, Durness, Stornoway and the Outer Hebrides - some of these places are a day trip and are well worth making the effort to visit but of course you can also just relax and do very little.
We can provide bicycle hire. Advance booking recommended.

I grew up in Strathpeffer and think it's a hidden gem of a place to live. Formerly a Victorian Spa town there are some beautiful buildings. It's a quiet and friendly village fortunate to be surrounded by gorgeous scenery but close enough to Inverness if you need a city fix. It's brilliant that the airport is only 30 minutes away and connects us to the world so easily. We love travelling, meeting people and listening to live music....and riding the local trails on our mountain-bikes when we can.
