We hope you are all keeping well during these difficult times.

Our team are focussing on the positives of the situation by enjoying downtime with our families. We will come back re-energised and ready to welcome you all back when permitted.

Coul trips – Silverbridge walk.

Coul trips – Silverbridge walk.

We recently rediscovered the SilverBridge forest walk; which is only about a ten minute drive from the hotel and about two and a half miles long.

The paths have been upgraded since I last walked it, and as is says on the walk Higlands website;

“Every step of this short circular walk is a delight, passing through beautiful woodland close to the banks of a dramatic foaming river. The river is crossed at each end of the walk by picturesque old stone bridges”.

 

Have a look at our Coul walks video:

Key facts:

Distance from Coul – 10 – 15 minute drive
Length of walk – 3.5km / 2.25 miles
Type of terrain – Waymarked path and track.

Coul Member Focus, the team at Coul House Hotel, Contin near Inverness.

WHO: Stuart Macpherson, Proud Owner and eternal optimist, always happiest when the hotel is full to bursting and house is buzzing with guests indulging in chef Garry`s cuisine.

WHAT: I like to start my day with a 5 or 10K run through the forest tracks that lead in various directions from the front door of the hotel.

WHY: It gives me the momentum for the day, maintains my sanity and helps to tire out our three dogs Alfie, Bella and Molly our newest addition.

WHERE: A road trip to Gairloch via Attadale Gardens, a rib-boat trip whale watching in Gairloch and back in time for a Black Isle Blonde Beer with some olives and nuts on the terrace before dinner.

WHEN: May is my favourite time of year, Spring is in full flow, and the garden has come alive, and business is buoyant.

March 2019 saw us complete the refurbishment of the last two rooms at Coul House.

We stripped the walls back to the stonework, raised the ceilings back to their original height, revealed then removed a neglected chimney breast (that we did not know was there) relocated one of the bedroom doors, then rebuilt, rewired and re-plumbed, installed two new shower rooms and voila two newly refurbished bedrooms are ready; simple as that!

Coul House Hotel, Coul Rooms

All of the rooms are non-smoking. With most of the room types you have a choice of view, which can be requested on making a reservation. Many of our repeat guests have their favourite room; whether it for its accessibility to the outside to let the dog out or for the commanding views down the glen.

Have a look at our new room gallery and see which room type suits you.

We have our 2020 celebration offer still on and a Mad March special coming out this week, keep an eye out for this special offer.
