Stay at Meikleour and enjoy driven or walked up shooting

Meikleour is a great location for shooting grouse on estates like Invercauld

The hotel and estate are also perfect if you are having a day off, and wish to stretch your legs – you can visit the famous Meikleour beech hedge, it recently hit the headlines when owners were faced with a £90,000 bill to trim the highest hedge in the world. 

Perhaps you’d love to visit the V&A in Dundee, an easy trip to make as it is only a 35 minute drive from Meikleour.

A warm welcome, real fires, cosy surroundings, a well-stocked bar and an extensive menu of locally sourced produce are all standard at the Meikleour Arms.

The blissful light of Oran Mor

If you are looking for a peaceful break in Scotland, I highly recommend a week at Oran Mor. The modern architect designed property overlooking Loch Fleet will not disappoint, located in the small settlement of Skelbo, it is a feast for the senses.  Oran Mor’s vast open views are often inhabited by the local wildlife; red kites soaring on the thermals, seals basking on the sandbanks, rabbits in the hedgerows and the fox wandering through the garden at dusk.

Oran Mor’s location, a few miles from Dornoch, is ideal for fishing the Helmsdale and many other rivers and lochs.

It’s also a perfect place for a relaxing break, the air is clean, and the light is incredible day and night. The sunsets are spectacularly colourful, and during the summer months, the light rarely fades.  Don’t close the bedroom curtains. Lie in bed, and let the sunrise welcome you to a new day as the early morning pink and orange hues stretch across the skies and flood the house.

Oran Mor is a spacious, comfortable property, well equipped with all mod-cons and with ample parking. The light in the house and surrounding landscape is fantastic, it has an uplifting, healing quality, and should be on prescription! Perfect for artists, photographers and those in need of a re-charge.
