Gask House is a converted 19th century agricultural steading offering two dog-friendly, contemporary, four-star luxury self-catering cottages.
Within easy reach of Inverness, Loch Ness and all that the Scottish Highlands have to offer, our self catering accommodation is set in a stunning, peaceful rural location with open views to the Monadhliath mountains, yet is just a 15 minute drive from the Highland capital.
The cottages are an ideal base for fishing, golf, walking, whisky trails, mountain biking and winter sports, not to mention the chance to see Loch Ness, castles and enjoy all the culture of the Highlands. Electric pay-as-you-go charging point on-site.
Gask House has its very own 4,000 year old Neolithic Ring Cairn within our 20-acre grounds, which guests are welcome to explore.
For golfers, there are three championship golf courses close by including Castle Stuart (20 mins drive), Nairn Championship (35 mins drive) and Royal Dornoch (1 hour).
Gill and Chris run the business and live onsite in Gask House with their three Labradors - Wish, Breagha and Luna.
Our two luxury cottages, Clava & Corrimony, form one part of the steading and were formerly home to various livestock, prior to their conversion to holidays cottages.
Both cottages have underfloor heating, wood burning stoves, fully equipped kitchens, smart TVs and wi-fi.
The cottages are contemporary open-plan in design, bright & airy and equipped with just about everything you can think of, in order to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
Gask House is located in the peaceful and rural Strathnairn valley, just a few miles south of Inverness, close to the small communities of Farr and Inverarnie. Bounded by the Monadhliath mountains to the south, Strathnairn valley has cradled humanity for thousands of years and was a key Neolithic trade route.
The Gask Ring Cairn (one of the Clava type cairns and the largest) and standing stone is situated in one of the fields as you approach Gask House and dates back 4,000 years. It is a Scheduled Monument which is listed and protected by Historic Environment Scotland, and you are most welcome to walk up and enjoy the atmosphere directly from your cottage.
The local area has fabulous hills, lochs and rivers and yet is close to so many of the Scottish Highland's best attractions - Loch Ness, Cawdor Castle, Culloden Battlefield, the Cairngorm Mountains and many more. We are ideally located for day trips to the Northern and Western Highlands or for exploring the splendid countryside right on your doorstep.
The area is renowned for its Jacobite connections and is set in the heartland of Clan Chattan - a confederation of clans comprising Clans MacKintosh, MacGillivray, Shaw, MacBean and MacPherson. It is said that some of these clans met at the Gask standing stone before the Battle of Culloden. In a nearby wood is the sharpening stone. It is also said that some clansmen who were gathering here before the Battle of Culloden sharpened their swords on this very stone.

Another Wonderful Stay
Corrimony Cottage has everything you need for a perfect holiday. It’s clean, well maintained and in a beautiful location. This is our 4th time staying here and you can see each time that the owners have made changes, they really do look after the cottage well. We highly recommend it.
Z. Stayed September 2023
"A very stylish, creature comfort, cosy place for the discerning traveller. Well equipped, warm in cold nights, extremely comfortable, suitable for 2 couples travelling together, or 2 adults and 2 kids.
We also enjoyed the option to have a wood heater going, to cook for ourselves, to purchase farm fresh hen and duck eggs, and benefiting from the hosts recommendations. While it is off the beaten track, it is close to Inverness, Loch Ness, and multiple other sightseeing and exploration opportunities (castles, cairns, waterfall, hiking, bike riding... ) and what beautiful views after a restful sleep. Highly recommended."

A lovely Cottage in a wonderful Location
"We spent a lovely 4 nights here and truly find it difficult to find anything negative to say. The cottage is ideally situated to explore the area in and around Inverness and Loch Ness. The hosts were most welcoming and made the stay a pleasure.
Comfortable and stylish the entire cottage is equipped to a very high standard. The log fire is great and makes the place cosy in the evenings.
All in all one of the best places we’ve visited and we will remember it for the future."
