Food scene
Some of our favourite local places for coffee, cake, lunch, dinner and breakfast. Some are in walking distance, but most do need a car to get to and have beautiful sights to see around them too.
Perfect woodfired pizza from 5pm, as well as a really lovely bakery and cafe throughout the day. A good selection of gin and wine to have in or buy to take out. A one mile walk from the cottage, in Strathpeffer village.

We love this little Thai restaurant in Dingwall. It has not got many seats so might be good to book first, or take-away.

The best place to go when you want to see Loch Ness and walk along the waters edge. Much better than Drumnadrochit which is so full of tourists and hard to get down to the loch edge!
