Coul House Hotel

Location
Contin, Scotland

Coul House is an intimate stone country house secluded in the hills above Contin, Ross-shire. Centrally located in the Northern Highlands of Scotland, it is the perfect base for exploring the region's rich tapestry of natural treasures. The small village of Contin nearby sits on the banks of the River Blackwater, surrounded by the Achilty Forest with miles of walking trails, waterfalls with salmon leaping throughout the summer, peaceful lochs and abundant wildlife. Coul House was built in 1821 for Sir George Steuart Mackenzie, whose family had resided in Coul since 1560. The word "Coul" in Gaelic means "settlement in the narrows of the glen." In 1827, David Douglas, the famous Scottish botanist for whom the Douglas fir was named, planted a fir tree still standing today. In the 1960s, the house was converted to a hotel, which has remained, being continually improved and refurbished in the decades since, particularly since its latest owners, Stuart and Susannah Macpherson, purchased it in 2003 with an eye to restoring its historic features and genteel period character.  A diverse collection of 21 en suite bedrooms, no two alike, offer beautiful views of either Strathconon and the mountains beyond or the lawn and mature woodlands. The dining room is a special highlight at Coul House, featuring contemporary Scottish cuisine and traditional favorites, sourced from local producers.
