Situated to the south of Inverness, Daviot offers visitors a peaceful and relaxing picturesque setting with spectacular countryside views. This is an ideal base to explore the north of Scotland and the Isle of Skye. The quiet and spectacular beaches of the west and east coasts are waiting to be discovered. Perfect location for the best of both worlds - in an idyllic quiet scenic Highland location yet only a few minutes drive from Inverness.
Larchfield holiday home is a 3 bedroom, spacious self catering modern house, sleeping up to 6 guests, equipped to the highest of standards, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable location to make the most of a relaxing holiday or as a base to explore the wider Scottish Highlands.
Daviot village, once home to the author Alistair MacLean whose father was the minister at the local church, is in an ideal location just off the A9 and about 20 minutes from Inverness airport, train and bus stations. Culloden Battlefield is only a few miles from the house as is Tomatin Distillery.
A 25 minute drive south will take you to Landmark activity centre Aviemore ski resort and Cairngorm National Park. Just another few miles on from there you can visit Kingussie Wildlife Park. Travel north towards Inverness to Drumsmittal Wildlife Park, take a trip on a boat to spot the dolphins or visit Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Inverness itself offers a choice of restaurants, live music, Vue cinema and Eden Court Theatre. The city has two golf courses or the links courses of Nairn and Dornoch are within an hour away.
If your preference is to spend time in the great outdoors then you will enjoy a multitude of forest and hill walks and the local cycle track network. General Wade’s Military Road, which once connected the south to Inverness, is only a few metres from the front door. Of course Scotland is famous for its fishing and we are a short distance from the rivers Nairn, Findhorn and Spey. Sea fishing is also available. Only a few miles from the house is Bogbain Farm where visitors can try their hand at Clay Pigeon Shooting and archery and the children can try quad biking.

The holiday home was excellent in every way. The location was fine with good access to the main a9 and to the City of Inverness. The house was very clean and comfortable to live in. The only downside to the holiday was the cool wet weather and problem with mobile phone communications which was very patchy. Overall though, and excellent holiday home.

A very comfortable, welcoming cottage, where we would happily stay again.
The views from the garden were stunning, and as the weather was good to us we were able to appreciate the peace and quiet of an evening.
