Description

Day 1
Travel to the B&B, on the way you will experience stunning views of our countryside. A warm welcome awaits you on arrival; we will show you round and get you settled into your room. Over a cuppa, we will have a chat about personalising your weekend activities – planning what scenery and attractions you want to see, whether that be exploring the highlands, walks in the local area, or simply relaxing in the comfort of our B&B – or a bit of everything!
Following an afternoon of your planned activities, you will dine at one of the best local restaurants and after dinner, you could enjoy a walk around the nearby river, or simply relax with your bottle of complimentary wine by the cosy fireplace in the lounge, or in your room, where you can catch up with Netflix.

Day 2
After a hearty home cooked breakfast, the day will be spent enjoying your planned activities, such as visiting the local waterfalls, forests, castles or distilleries, or simply spending the day relaxing for that well-deserved rest.
In the evening you will dine at one of the best local restaurants, and spend the evening at leisure.

Day 3
On the morning of your check out, after enjoying another home cooked breakfast of your choice, we can discuss the itinerary for your day and the journey home, where we will point out places of interest and hidden gems to visit on your way back.

P.S. Before booking, please be aware we have two friendly dogs and a cat in the house.

Your hosts

Hi, we are Gunta and Alec.
We are a friendly couple with grown-up kids, who have left the family nest. At home, we have two well-behaved dogs Sasha & Roxy, and our old lady, cat Lola.

We love to spend time with amazing people from all over the world in great conversations, going for long walks in the nearby forest by the river and have a good laugh!

Now we live in the most amazing place on the earth! We are right in the middle of everything. From us, you can travel to very North to see Thurso, Wick or John O’Groats or visit West Coast and we are only 20 miles (30 min drive) away from Inverness. From our home, you can go for an amazing walk in the forest by the river.
You will be surprised how much here is to see!

Ardross is located about 20 miles north of the Highland capital, Inverness, and is in the county of Easter Ross. It lies on the B9176 road that runs between the town of Alness on the Cromarty Firth and the village of Bonar Bridge on the Dornoch Firth. This road is signposted as the “Moray Firth Tourist Route” and is a scenic alternative to the A9 for those travelling up or down the East coast of Scotland. This road is also on the most common Lands End to John O Groats route, making us a convenient stopover for those travelling End to End.

Scotland, and in particular the Highlands, offers probably the best walking available in the United Kingdom. There’s everything from low level strolls by lochs and rivers, to the Mountains and in particular the Munro’s, the 3000 foot mountains of which there are 284. And there’s just about everything in between. Something for all ages and abilities.

Scotland is a bit different. Access to the hills is, by tradition, allowed on most uncultivated upland area’s. This makes hill walking here somewhat different. For a start, you will find very few footpaths marked on Ordnance Survey maps, and far fewer signposted on the ground. Because all walkers are not forced to follow exactly the same path, you will often find when you reach the open hillside, you will not have easy paths to follow (except in some very popular area’s) but rather you will have to do your own navigation. Finding your way onto the hillside can also be difficult in places.
