This entire area has been lovingly finished to ensure a comfortable stay for all, as well as making it a breeze to get ready for the day ahead and have a restful night's sleep.

Outside, there is a driveway which can accommodate two cars and a lawned area that you could lay a blanket on for a picnic. In addition to this, you cannot forget the vast amounts of countryside that lies right on your doorstep, ready for you to explore at your disposal.

As my wife and I meandered down to the Kildermorie Estate a transformation began. A mysterious tranquility dominated as the world and its hectic pace we left behind began to dissipate. We both felt like Gene Kelly in his role in the film Brigadoon. Simply, we were enchanted. This overwhelming feeling was complimented by the wonderful staff who gracRead moreiously offered a hospitality we never experienced before. We viewed a variety of wildlife and birds whose morning melodies were like a choir. We fished Loch Morie and the streams that slipped down from the Highlands. We visited Allness to enjoy the Station Hotel Pub and fine restaurant. We hiked the estate's many paths and visited the many ancient area churches. We did not have a vacation in the routine traditional sense but we experienced a beauty of a an unknown magnitude. Hide
