Quality accommodation, peace, relaxation, unrivalled hospitality, and delicious wholesome breakfasts.
An Darach lies in a delightful woodland setting, on a quiet no-through lane just off the A835 Inverness to Ullapool road, making it an ideal base for touring the magnificent splendour of the Northern Highlands. A paradise for lovers of beautiful scenery, birds, wildlife, walking, climbing, golf, cycling and other outdoor pursuits. Ideal for those wanting to get away from it all but still only a 20 minute drive from the many and varied attractions of the vibrant city of Inverness.
Why waste time planning somewhere different to stay every night and then waste fuel and valuable hours of your holiday, driving from one B&B to another and living out of a suitcase? Leave your luggage at An Darach and spend the day exploring, safe in the knowledge that you are coming home every evening to comfortable and familiar surroundings.
Whether your stay with us is for business or pleasure, we aim to make your visit a relaxing and pleasurable experience.
An Darach is situated on the outskirts of Contin, which has a church, hotel restaurant, convenience store, garage and petrol station.

The house, which is built on one level, has a lovely south-facing rear aspect overlooking a large garden where guests are welcome to wander or just sit and relax, bearing in mind the weather in this area is much better than the national weather forecasts would have us believe.
