On collecting our keys we used the lift to take our cases to our room...

Here on a business trip, but extended it a little, so business / pleasure. It really is a fantastic location. Strathpeffer is a beautiful little village with some lovely forest walks (proper footpaths). It's in a valley, in the shadow of Ben Wyvis, which is still very snow covered at time of writing. The Highland Hotel is in the centre...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Peacefully set in its own grounds with lovely views over the colourful village square, this chateau style hotel’s traditional features have been carefully retained to strike just the right Highland note. A warm welcoming feeling comes as much from the friendly staff as from the fine wood panelled public rooms which have been carefully preserved. Strathpeffer itself is just steps away from the hotel and is renowned as an attractive Highland spa resort with fabulous Victorian architecture. Be sure to enjoy the scenic views of the village below from the open veranda. The massive peak of Ben Wyvis is the backdrop to this charming village. It’s a perfect base from which to explore Scotland’s dramatic Northern Highlands – mountainous countryside, sparkling streams, waterfalls and golden shores. ... more   less
