Description

Situated on the Black Isle Peninsula, and only 14 miles north of Inverness, Wester Brae Highland Lodges make an ideal base for exploring the northern Highlands and Wester Ross. The single-storey, detached lodges are set well apart in secluded, landscaped grounds offering spectacular outlooks over the Cromarty Firth towards Ben Wyvis and the mountains of Ross-shire.

Millbuie Forest, immediately behind the lodges, has a vast network of roads and paths suitable for walking and cycling. The forest is home to pine martens, wildcats, roe deer and many species of birds including red kites and buzzards. Dolphins and seals are often seen in the waters around the Black Isle along with the great variety of wildlife making this a paradise for nature lovers. The picturesque seaside villages of Cromarty, Rosemarkie and Fortrose are a short journey from Wester Brae, each village has different and fascinating aspects. Access to sandy beaches is easy and seaside rock pools are a source of wonder for younger visitors. A network of walking paths cover the Black Isle with the clifftop path from Cromarty to Rosemarkie being a particular favourite. For sport enthusiasts, golf, mountain biking, climbing and water sports are all available nearby. Day trips to Loch Ness, the Orkney Islands, Isle of Skye and Inverness are recommended, or relax in the comfort of your chair and watch the changing scenery of this lovely part of the Highlands. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 9 guests.

About the local area

Discover a wonderful variety of contrasting landscapes that will make a lasting impression, from the remote rock-hewn wilderness of far north west Sutherland to the green rolling coastal lands by the Cromarty Firth. Wherever you travel you're surrounded by some of the most outstanding remote natural beauty in Scotland.

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy `The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

Summer visitors to the Highlands (mostly July and August) may not want to miss the annual Highland Games, which are held across the Highlands and are a unique spectacle of athletic, dancing and piping events which should not be missed!
