The Coul House, Contin near Inverness

In Inverness I am staying at The Coul House, which is roughly forty minutes away from Inverness airport by car.

The Coul House is a lovely country hotel set in a lush and beautifully landscaped park. The rooms overlook the garden and from the upper floor you have an excellent view of the rolling hills in the distance.

The rooms are nicely appointed. The Coul House is a hotel but it has the cosy look and feel of a family run B&B. Inside everything is decorated in what I can only describe as typically British style, with thick carpets everywhere and heavy curtains draped form the high ceiling.

The food at the Coul House is very good. They even do a great afternoon tea which is served in the lounge, with a large window overlooking the garden.

All in all, I can highly recommend the Coul House for a weekend getaway or even if as a base if you are planning on staying in the highlands for a week or so. The owners, Stuart and Susannah, are excellent hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. If you have any questions or need suggestions on things to do and places to visit, you can be sure they will be able to help you out.
