The front door in Summer

At the end of a small road and surrounded by natural woodland, with wonderful views over forests to Ben Wyvis, Strathconon and Glen Affric, Craigiewood has an atmosphere of peaceful isolation, yet is only 10 minutes drive from the centre of Inverness.

This is the family home of Araminta Dallmeyer who welcomes guests to stay for bed and breakfast. Araminta knows what's going locally and, if you like, will help you organise your day. She also has a wide knowledge of Scotland, and there is no-one better to give advice about getting the best out of your stay.

Loch Ness, the untouched native pine woods of Glen Affric, the wilds of Sutherland, Speyside whisky distilleries, the castles of Moray and Aberdeenshire, and even the West coast and Skye are all within a day's drive of Craigiewood.
