The Flatlet

This attractive accommodation is perfect for a family of 4, or 2 couples travelling together but also very comfortable for a single couple, especially if they have lots of luggage!
The Flatlet is quiet and private and would also be ideal for a longer stay (e.g. company or theatrical staff working in the area away from their home base). The flatlet is let on a B&B basis at £70 - £120 per night (according to the number of people in the group).

The separate 'Flatlet' (pictured left and below) is a self contained unit with a small bathroom, twin bedroom and large main room with double bed, table and chairs, fridge, TV and sofa that can pull out as an extra bed. The flatlet is pine timbered with lovely views.

Your Hosts

Janet's family has lived in the area for over 400 years. She is a direct descendant of Duncan Forbes of Culloden, Scotland's most senior judge at the time of the battle fought over his land in 1746 by Bonnie Prince Charlie and 'Butcher' Cumberland.
As a qualified tour guide, she is Secretary of the Highlands of Scotland Tour Guide Association. Her knowledge and love of history and the Highlands means you will not be short of advice and suggestions on what to do or where to go!
If you need the services of a tour guide, please e-mail for daily rates.
Tim, a former submarine Commander in the Royal Navy, founded a unique printing business in Nairn. Piccolo Press works for members of the Royal Households, ambassadors and other clients all over the world.
The company was especially proud to print the invitations for the return of the Stone of Destiny to Scotland in 1996 and also the invitations for the opening of the Scottish Parliament in July 1999. Tim has now retired from the business.

Meals

A full breakfast is provided in the large open plan kitchen in the main house (be prepared for stimulating conversation!). Although evening meals are not provided, Inverness has a wide choice of eating places offering all sorts of cuisine. The Culloden Moor Inn, 1 mile away just past the Culloden Battlefield provides excellent 'good value' food. There is also good pub food at Cawdor Village and Ardesier, about 15 minutes from the house.

Location

Westhill is just a 10-minute drive from the centre of Inverness, the vibrant capital of the Highlands. Inverness is the perfect base for either a short (or long!) break in this glorious part of the world as the whole of the North of Scotland is within easy reach.

Inverness

Lots of local events are held annually such as the Inverness Highland Games and Tattoo (late July), the Moy Game Fair (first weekend in August), Piping Competition (September) and the Highland Archaeology Week (October). Plus lots of musical, arts and sporting events all throughout the year. Click for more local events.

Inverness in Scotland Travel to the region has never been easier with excellent coach services including Citylink, good rail connections and roads in all directions, plus regular flights in and out of Dalcross International Airport which is just 15 minutes from the house. More travel information is given in The Internet Guide to Scotland.
Not only is the famous Culloden Battlefield literally on our doorstep, but you can soon hop over to the uniquely peaceful atmosphere of the nearby Clava Cairns which date back to the Bronze Age.

Of the many historic castles in the eastern Highlands, Cawdor is perhaps one of the most delightful with its gardens and ghosts, nature trails and golf course.

Cawdor Castle

Further afield, you can drive to the historic towns of Elgin, Beauly and Strathpeffer, follow the Whisky Trail or visit other places of interest such as Fort George, the Black Isle and the Strathspey Steam Railway. All the intrigue of Loch Ness is just to the west, and to the south is the splendour of the Cairngorm mountains.

And there's lots more besides this in the Highlands - just ask Janet!
