Coul House’s proud owners

Stuart & Susannah Macpherson

Myself and Susannah own and operate (alongside our fantastic team and the occasional help from the kids) this beautiful 1820`s MacKenzie mansion which we purchased sight unseen in 2003. It`s surprisingly well located (just 25 minutes north of Inverness) on the door step of the North Coast 500 route leading to the Highland wilderness.  We offer delicious food, great wine and a warm friendly welcome.

Comfortable Rooms.
