Strathpeffer

This Victorian spa town, located within Ross and Cromarty in the North of Scotland is a wonderful retreat. With abundant opportunities to explore the Ross-shire Highlands and stunning landscapes at every corner, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Strathpeffer was a popular spa destination during the Victorian era and this history can be clearly seen in the town’s fabulous architecture, as well as the old railway line, which now houses a museum in the refurbished station. There are many opportunities for photographers and wildlife watchers to spot the local wildlife, from the Dolphins swimming in the Moray Firth, to red deer running in the forest. During your stay here, explore nearby golf courses, castles, whisky distilleries and the many outdoor activities available.

In and around Strathpeffer

Castle Leod

Belonging to Clan Mackenzie for over 500 years, this historical castle has played a central role in the history of the highlands, and of Scotland. The castle was built on the site of an ancient Pictish fort and has withstood the Jacobite uprising, treason and falling into ruin before being restored to its current form. The caste has also gained media recognition, with the popular TV series ‘Outlander’ taking inspiration from the castle for one of its locations.

Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre

The climactic battle of the Jacobite rising of 1745 ended with Charles Edward Stuart being defeated by loyalist, William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland. This was the last set piece battle in the United Kingdom and ended the Jacobite uprising. The battle was decisive and resulted in between 1000 to 2000 Jacobites’ deaths within one hour. This fascinating centre stands upon the battlefield itself and features an interactive exhibition and a visitor centre, which explain the lead up to the battle and the gory details thereafter.

Highland Museum of Childhood

Housed in what was once the railway station, this museum showcases a huge collection of antique dolls, as well as exhibits featuring games, toys and costumes from down the years. Find out what life was like for Scottish children in the Highlands, as well as local folklore and customs of the ages. Visitors can enjoy watching an award-winning film from the museum, viewing the collections of toys as well as getting a bite to eat or a hot drink at the coffee shop.
