About Us

Pinewood Steading offers luxurious dog-friendly self-catering near Loch Ness, in a rural and tranquil part of the Scottish Highlands - a unique and breathtaking landscape. With captivating and uninterrupted views over the Beauly Firth, to Ben Wyvis and beyond, we call it our 'Slice of Highland Heaven'.

Pinewood is a converted stone steading set in 3.5 enclosed acres of mixed birch and pine trees. This is a peaceful haven in a secluded location. A perfect place to get away from it all, to relax and unwind. To have a physical and mental detox from fast-paced living, to connect with wilderness and nature.

Pinewood is an immaculately presented, very well-equipped, single-storey holiday accommodation with wheelchair access. It has thoughtful and luxurious touches throughout to make your holiday that extra bit special. The main living area is open-plan, with a warm welcoming lounge and benefits from a wood burner. This room leads into the large kitchen which is bright, modern and well equipped with wonderful views over the Beauly Firth. Pinewood has underfloor heating throughout which is lovely, especially in winter when you can jump out of bed onto a warm floor! There is also unlimited, high-speed wifi with free access.

Pinewood sits on the doorstep to some of the most spectacular scenery and mountain ranges of Scotland. Here, you can truly experience the peace and tranquillity of Scotland and our own rural setting, combined with easy access to modern amenities. Pinewood is only a 20-minute drive from Inverness, the capital of the Highlands. It is 35 minutes from the airport, just 10 minutes from the village of Beauly, and near the Great Glen and Glen Affric.

Our Green Tourism Credentials
We are passionate about our green credentials and are thrilled to hold the Gold Award from Green Tourism, the largest and most established sustainable certification programme in the world. We are committed to building a green and sustainable business.

The Steading will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts and walkers, as well as tourists. It is ideally situated for easy access to walks in Strathconon, Strathfarrar and Glen Affric. Mountain biking, cycling, fishing and winter sports breaks are all possible too. Pinewood is also close to tourist attractions like Loch Ness, castles, whisky tours, and historic battlegrounds. The best all-round place to combine wildlife, history, heritage and culture.

The Accommodation - in detail
Pinewood Steading has been fully equipped so you don’t need to bring anything but yourselves and your clothes when you come to stay. No need to bring kitchen items like washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing machine tablets or cloths. Nor sandwich bags, cling film, baking paper or tin foil. You don’t have to pack kitchen towel, or loo roll, or even spices, herbs, oils, vinegar, salt and pepper. We make your holiday packing easier by providing this for you. And as a luxury dog-friendly holiday cottage in the Highlands, we provide doggy items like bowls, poo bags, shampoo and throws. And as many of these items as possible are ‘green’ in accordance with our Green Policy here at Pinewood. We also have an Accessibility Statement and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the layout of, and access to, the Steading.

Bedrooms:-
The master bedroom is a wonderfully large room and features a king size oak bed with luxury mattress. We make the bed up with high quality linen from The White Company to ensure you have the best sleep possible. It has a large built-in wardrobe for all your holiday clothes. The room is also furnished with an oak chest of drawers, two bedside tables with lamps and a large oak mirror. We have provided a reading area with a good library of books and two very comfortable armchairs, should you wish to have some quiet time away from the other guests. The room is set off with a large cathedral window at one end. This room also has an ensuite toilet with basin.

The second bedroom has twin beds which can also be made into a super king bed, again with linen from The White Company. It boasts stunning views across the countryside and to Ben Wyvis. Many guests comment on the mattresses and linen we use. They regularly say they have the best night’s sleep here.

Bathroom:-
The main bathroom is large with a separate shower unit and a free standing bath. Great for those of you who like to soak after a day’s touring or walking. We provide toiletries (hand soap and lotion, shower gel, and bath foam) from the Highland Soap Company, along with thick, fluffy towels. Underfloor heating too. Coming complete with a great view towards Ben Wyvis, this really is a loo with a view!

Kitchen:-
A highlight of Pinewood is its large and spacious, yet still warm and welcoming, kitchen. It has been beautifully designed with many cupboards and worktops. It is fully equipped with high-quality utensils, appliances, and everything from crockery to cutlery, cocktail makers to toasters, even spices and oils. So, whether you plan to make a 3-course gourmet meal or simply knock up something fast and delicious, you should have all the equipment you need. As well as a kitchen table to seat four, it also has a breakfast bar, so your fellow guests can easily chat to you if you are the one in the kitchen. There is a utility room with a washing machine and space where coats and boots can be kept.

Sitting Room:-
The sitting room is always the place where you want to settle down, cosy up, and relax. Come and warm your feet by the wonderful wood-burning stove. The sitting room is spacious with a very comfortable sofa and armchair with super views over the countryside. It has a flat-screen TV, a Bose (bluetooth) speaker system, and a DVD player with a wide range of DVDs. We also provide lots of local tourist information and maps. Netflix and Amazon TV is available to guests who have accounts with them. You’ll also find a selection of family games and cards for those of you who like to play. Please note we have wooden floors throughout the main living room area. So if you bring dogs, you may like to bring non-slip mats with you (if you have them), or we do have a few available to use.

Outside:-
Pinewood Steading is accessed via a tree-lined drive, which provides your first glimpse of our inspirational views! Keep an eye out for wildlife as you make your way down the drive. There is space to park 2 cars by the garage.

Pinewood Steading and Pinewood Lodge are on the same site. Jane and James live in Pinewood Lodge. We are neighbours, but not attached. We are most often out and about, or away, but always available on email or the phone to help with anything you may need.

The Steading has its own enclosed and very rivate garden with spectacular views over the Beauly Firth, Ben Wyvis, and Strathfarrar – in fact, 180 degree views!

We have set up a wooden decking area outside with BBQ and garden furniture, so you really can soak up the location and the stunning scenery. And if you’re lucky, you may be able to catch sight of the Northern Lights.

We have an old pottery room attached to the garage, which can be used for drying wet outdoor gear or to store your bicycles.

Pinewood Steading is exceptionally dog friendly and we believe this is highlighted by the fact that we do not charge for dogs. There is no limit on the number of dogs, although we do ask that you let us know what you have, and what size, so we can make sure our accommodation is suitable for you all to have the best possible holiday. We have doggy treats on arrival and provide doggy pooh bags and cleaning products (just in case!) and can also provide extra items in case you leave any behind: dog bowls, towels, leads, collars, shampoo and throws. We have an outside tap and hose pipe which is useful for hosing the dog down after a day in the hills.

There are great dog walks in the area, right from the front door. Reelig Glen is one of our local favourites, along with Abriachan. The list is endless. We have a folder in the Steading with some of our favourite walks, and provide leaflets and maps. Rest assured, for most of the walks you go on in this part of the Highlands, you won't see anyone else!
