Pinewood is immaculately presented and very well-equipped, with thoughtful and luxurious touches throughout. It has a good layout and access for wheelchairs and those with limited mobility. Dog friendly, with no charge and no limit (depending on size). Green Tourism Gold Award member.
Pinewood Steading is spacious, yet still cosy, with underfloor heating throughout.
The main living area is spacious and open-plan, with a warm welcoming sitting room and large kitchen. The sitting room has a comfortable sofa and armchair with super views over the countryside. It has a flat-screen TV, a Bose (bluetooth) speaker system, a DVD player with a wide range of DVDs and lots of local tourist information and maps. We also provide a selection of family games and cards for those of you who like to play. Please note we have wooden floors throughout the main living room area so if you bring dogs, you may like to bring any of your non-slip mats with you (if you have them), or we do have a few available to use.
The sitting room leads into a large kitchen which is bright with a large cathedral window and wonderful views of the Beauly Firth. It is fully equipped with high quality utensils, appliances, and everything from crockery to cutlery, cocktail makers to toasters, even spices and oils. As well as a kitchen table to seat four, it also has a breakfast bar. There is a utility room with a washing machine, and space where coats and boots can be kept.
The master bedroom is a wonderfully large room and features a king size oak bed with luxury mattress. We make the bed up with high quality linen from The White Company to ensure you have the best sleep possible. We have provided a reading area with a good library of books and two very comfortable armchairs. The room is set off with a large cathedral window at one end. This room also has an ensuite toilet with basin.
The second bedroom has twin beds which can also be made into a super king bed, again with linen from The White Company. It boasts stunning views across the countryside and to Ben Wyvis. Many guests comment on the mattresses and linen we use. They regularly say they have the best night’s sleep here!
The main bathroom is large with a separate shower unit and a bath, for those of you who prefer to soak after a day’s touring or walking. We provide toiletries (hand soap and lotion, shower gel, and bath foam) from the Highland Soap Company, along with thick, fluffy towels. Coming complete with a great view towards Ben Wyvis, this really is a loo with a view!
Pinewood is only a 20 mins drive from Inverness, 35 mins from the airport, 10 mins from Beauly and close to Loch Ness. We sit on the doorstep to some of the most spectacular scenery and mountain ranges, yet have easy access to local amenities. We appeal to walkers and tourists alike, with hill, mountain and forest walks nearby, castles and distilleries, or visit Loch Ness for a cruise.
Come and enjoy the peace and tranquillity or pursue outdoor activities, coming home after a good day out to relax in the charm of Pinewood Steading.
