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.
Eat, drink and be merry with food from local chef Garry Kenley. Garry and I have known each other now for over thirty years, worked together for over twenty…. and would you believe, we are still talking to each other, well most of the time!
Never liked his dress sense, his taste in women or his management style but…the boy can cook, play the guitar, write songs and wax lyrical about everything from philosophy to trade unions and hits a mean driver down the local fairways.
Prides himself on being a traditional chef, makes everything from scratch from ice cream to pastry and everything in between. He certainly makes the undisputed best scones, shortbread and bridies in the area. Not to mention his steaks, venison, hare, halibut. Crab cakes, scallops, home cured salmon…
Whether you’re coming for business or pleasure, we trust you’ll enjoy the unique 18th Century architecture, the comfortable bedrooms and the delicious dining. Relax in the lounge, have a drink in the bar, or take a walk in our beautiful gardens where guests of all ages enjoy our fairy trail, the mature woods and the pitch and putt. Come and experience the Coul House effect…
