Coul House Hotel

Coul House is your classic country house hotel, located (20 minutes north of Inverness) at the edge of the Scottish wilderness. It is surprisingly well situated to allow you to enjoy the best of the Highland landscapes, activities and attractions.

The North Coast 500 route passes our door and leads you round some of the most spectacular scenery in the Highlands of Scotland. Dunrobin, Urquhart, Cawdor and Eilean Donan castles, Glenmorangie, Glen Ord, Dalmore and Tomatin distilleries, Attadale, Inverewe and Balmacara gardens are all within or just over an hour’s drive. Not to mention Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, Clava Cairns, the Pictish Stones and of course Loch Ness, the question will not be `what is there to do?` but how long can we stay?

With 21 comfortable bedrooms, beautiful views, and rather splendid public rooms, Coul House lends itself to be a most relaxing destination.

Chef Garry offers a wide range of creative cuisine including traditional afternoon tea (with the best warm scones in the area), his enticing a la carte menu has something for everyone from venison to seafood not to mention his homemade ice creams and delicious dessert. Be sure to keep your appetite intact to get the most out of your Coul House experience.

The ancient estate of Coul expands over thousands of acres, many of those are still accessible today with walking and biking trails from the house`s front door. Be sure to take your dog with you as Coul House is pet friendly to.
