Children love the Play Park with zip-wire, fenced in football pitch and goals, roundabout, swings, TeleTubby Hill slide and toddler slide. It’s a great place for them to let off steam. There is a football provided but bring one in case it gets punctured!
For those lovely summer days there is a charcoal BBQ with tools.
Feel chilly later in the evening? Light the Chimnea, first box of logs free.
The huge heavy wooden outdoor table and benches is conveniently sited directly outside the main kitchen patio doors and provide stunning views over the loch. Watch the sun go down whilst relaxing here with your friends.
Love lying back in the sun? You can use the sunloungers and chairs too!
Parking for several cars and large vans and access for dropping off. Disabled parking next to a gently smooth concrete slope.
Bringing your bike? There are 2 outdoor bike storage racks in the house wall, bring your locking chain or if you are concerned you can bring them into the Snooker Room or inner hallway. For those keen on mountain biking there are many tracks around the area and the roads around the house are very quiet and a haven for road cyclists. Remember to pull into the passing places as it’s hard for cars to pass on single track lanes. Like walking? Try the gentler trails in the woods at the back of the house. Into running? Try the track above, it’s testing but fun or if you prefer keep to the flat roads or walker’s paths. There is a walkers path you can join at the side of the house which is part of The 7 loch Trail.
Have you got your own kayaks/canoes? There is a private launching slipway within the grounds down by the loch.
Don’t forget for all the outdoor activities you know if you get caught in the rain that the 3 drying cupboards will soon have you ready overnight for the next day!

Try the nearby Trout Fishery only 10 minutes along the road if you don’t get a catch in Loch Duntelchaig!
Karting opened in 2016 in Inverness, by Fairways golf driving range.
It’s a 30 minute taxi from Inverness Airport and 20 minutes into town.
Inverness has a wide variety of restaurants to suit all budgets and D&E coaches can organise a small coach to run you back and forth.
Outside catering is an option too…give yourselves a well-earned break on your long weekend! Try The StoreHouse at Foulis Ferry who have been to the house many times to cater for guest's large celebrations.
Bring your camera..hare, deer, buzzards, rabbits, grouse, polecat, weasels, woodpeckers and many, many more birds..RSPB Ruthven is just at the other side of the loch.
Activities within minutes of the house
Bring the latest blockbuster film, make some popcorn in our machine and settle down on the Cinema Room’s leather reclining chairs to watch a good movie with your friends! It also has a PS4 and two controllers so bring your favourite games.
Get competitive in the Snooker Room with the 8’ x 4’ snooker table including all accessories, perfect for rainy days or evenings.
If your group needs their gaming fix then the new Gaming Area has an Xbox 1 and Xbox 360. There are many games and 2 controllers per box
Try a spot of fun gambling with the secret poker and roulette table hidden in one of the coffee tables in the main sitting room…it’s another great idea for winter evenings.
Throughout the house are jigsaws, toys, books and magazines, board games, movies, CDs and for the very young there is a wonderful large Brio train set with trains. There is also a selection of outdoor games such as boules, a football and a cricket set, all of which can change depending on availability. Please note that due to the covid restrictions these indoor items are currently not available but will be back asap.
Still need more? Then challenge everyone to a winner takes all on the football table!
Finished with the games and want to start the dancing? Bring your iphone or similar and plug in your favourite tunes via the aux cable in the dance area and start the rotating coloured light ball , a sure hit to get the party started. Don’t forget to light up the trees with the fairy lights too.
Prefer to catch up with the news or soap etc? Relax and view the large LED TV and sound bar in the main sitting room or if you would rather be by yourself for a while curl up on the upstairs sofa overlooking Loch Duntelchaig with a good book from the many books available to borrow. There is a SKY box in the Cinema Room and Gaming Area too so there won’t be any disagreements as you can always watch your favourite programme. Handy when sport is on the other!
Now you just need to book to start the celebration, the house has proved a success over the years with all the generations from toddlers to grandparents due to the facilities on offer.
