Travelers' Choice
Coul House was built in 1821 and is set in the hills above Contin and offers scenic views and an award-winning restaurant. Located within 5 miles of Loch Achilty and Loch Ussie, this hotel is only 20 minutes' drive from Inverness. The spacious twenty one rooms are individually decorated, and many have period features and garden views. All rooms have a flat-screen TV, a private bathroom with free toiletries, tea and coffee facilities and a seating area. Free Wi-Fi is included. Many of our repeat guests have their favourite room; whether it is for its accessibility to the outside to let the dog out or for the commanding views down the glen. The restaurant has a unique octagonal shape and an ornate ceiling. Serving a contemporary gourmet menu using local produce, there is also a wide ranging wine list. We are known for our versatility here at Coul House, often saying that our meal times are guide lines not deadlines. Chef Garry offers a range of dining options which includes both contemporary Scottish Cuisine and some more traditional favourites. I am sure you will agree there’s something for everyone to relish whether it’s for Lunch, Afternoon Tea, or Dinner. With plenty of space to relax and wind down, you’ll find yourself in awe of unique architecture, ornate plasterwork, fine craftsmanship and the unusual shapes which adorn the interiors of Coul House Hotel. Magnificent fireplaces, ornate ceilings and great views from all of the public areas create a unique environment with a very relaxing ambiance. Set in eight acres of beautiful mature woodland, Coul House is opposite the biking track to Rogie Waterfalls, in Achilty Forest. Free private parking is available and the market town of Dingwall is just 6 miles away. Beauly can be reached after a 20-minute drive. Nearby attractions include the castles at Dunrobin and Cawdor, Glen Ord Whisky

Enjoyed a couple of nights with family and celebrated my 70 birthday with friends and family combined with a fundraiser for the Highland Hospice. Had my wedding breakfast here in 2009 and my 60th birthday celebrations too. Service, food, rooms, ambiance are always excellent. Nothing was to much trouble and our needs were anticipated in advance. Thank you all so much for making my birthday celebrations so enjoyable and memorable. Everyone enjoyed themselves and commented on the excellent standards. Truly deliciously relaxing, highly recommended.

We are just back from four days at Coul House celebrating a big birthday. There were just the three of us and This hotel is beautifully appointed and its staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was memorable and enjoyable.. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable and offered lovely views down the valley to the south, The quality of the food served in the restaurant was top class, as were all aspects of the accompanying service. We would have no hesitation returning there in the future; indeed we would much look forward to it.
