About the House
Located in the heart of the Northern Highlands of Scotland, our wonderful, early Georgian country house is the perfect base for a Self Catering Holiday for a large group of friends, family, a small Wedding or business get together.
For celebrations there is a coach house, a rustic style barn, holding up to 60 persons, a Bar, Music, Heating and Catering could be organised with extra local accommodation arranged for extra guests if required. The barn is approx 60 metres from the main house.
he house is set in 33 acres, including a secret walled garden, terraced lawns to the front, mature trees and rhododendrons, and an ancient burial ground of the Romanes family. The approach to the house includes views of the Cromarty Firth and the Black Isle, and in spring is a riot of wildflowers including bluebells and daffodils.
Peaceful and elegant, Pitcalzean House is a relaxing haven where you can enjoy the perfect break. There is an impressive and elegant drawing room with lovely garden views, a spacious dining room once graced by the visiting Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 1974, and a fine snooker room for evening entertainment.
This area is peaceful and quiet with some lovely sandy beaches (Shandwick, Portmahomack and Dornoch) and dolphin watching or fishing cruises. Inverness is just 38 miles away and the airport just a little further.
There is plenty to do for all the family - hill walking, beachcombing, dolphin spotting and golf. There is a 9-hole golf course at Tarbat nearby and also that most famous of Scottish courses - Royal Dornoch - just a 20-minute drive away.
We can also accommodate a group of friends looking for a 'get away from it all break' and can also create bespoke weekends for individual groups, breaks such as these can be considered at reasonably short notice if available.
Besides ensuring we had all we required, Fiona gave us suggestions of entertainment to be had locally i.e. we had a storyteller, clay pigeon shooting, piper and Scottish dancers which all turned out to be excellent. The recommendation of Mrs Brigitte Eley to do the catering for the week was a master stroke as all our guests enjoyed her cooking so much.”
