Coul House Hotel - "Deliciously Relaxing"

Built in 1821 as a shooting lodge in the heart of the Highlands for Sir George Stuart Mackenzie, now a charming country house hotel under the ownership of experienced hoteliers, Stuart and Susannah Macpherson. The hotel overlooks the Strathconon valley and the magnificent mountains beyond. Adjacent is the Achilty Forest and Roggie Falls where in season you can watch the salmon leaping.
