Welcome to Culbincrofthouse Holiday Cottages and Bed & Breakfast on The Bonnie Black Isle


For more local information, including all about the wildlife and outdoor / indoor pursuits, visit the Black Isle web site

Bikers and Cyclists have the freedom
of many and varied quiet roads. We have
a secure building for storage.

The Highlands of Scotland are steeped
in history, from haunted castles to the
legend that is our very own "Nessie".

We are particularly well situated to see many rare birds and animals. There are Red Kite, Buzzards and Opspreys, large flocks of Geese and other waders. We have our own resident Red Squirrels, and if visiting Loch Ness to see our very own "Nessie", why not aim to catch sight of the Moray Firth Dolphins, and maybe Seals and even Otters at nearby North Kessock.

Inverness City is five minutes drive south from the Cottages, making it ideal to find Good Pubs & Clubs with entertainment; cosy riverside cafes; and a good choice of restaurants.

June sees the start of the summertime Galas and Highland Games; Pipebands etc. The biggest Show is "The Black Isle Show" always the first Thursday in August, with something for everyone to see and do, a great day out for everybody.

Indoor attractions include a seven Screen Cinema Complex; Swimming & Gym at the Aquadome Leisure Complex; Ice Skating; Ten Pin Bowling, Eden Court Theatre. There are Woollen & Tartan Mills, and many local shops to see.
Maybe buy a local Haggis?


At Culbin Crofthouse
we are central to the Highlands, so most
places are accessible
Car tours of The Highlands are very rewarding. With quiet roads, there is much to discover. 30 minutes away are the impressive fortifications at Fort George, whilst a similar trip south across the Kessock Bridge will bring you to the Culloden Battlefield with all its Clan history from the 1745 uprising. Just a field or two away from Culloden at Clava is a huge complex of vast Stone Age Cairns. Further south at Carrbridge is the Landmark Centre. The Strathspey Steam Railway from Boat of Garten to Aviemore is a great treat for all, and at Kingussie and Newtonmore there are the twin Highland Folk Museums. There are Castle trails and the Malt Whisky trail is a must for lovers of the "Amber Nectar" Take a trip to Loch Ness, and maybe cruise to Urquhart Castle. See the Lock Ladder at Fort Augustus, and in winter, visit the Funicular Railway and Ski Slopes at Aviemore, or Nevis Range and it's Gondola. Rewarding trips are to the beautiful Strathconnan Glens, or Strathfarrar, west of Beauly. Maybe trace your ancestors, or take a cruise on the Moray Firth to spot dolphins, or enjoy a guided mystery tour of Inverness. The whole area affords spectacular opportunities for Walkers & Hillwalkers, the only way to truly appreciate our fantastic scenery.
The walks around the Ness Islands in Inverness are very attractive.
