Farm Accommodation

The Scottish Highlands have a rich heritage of agriculture and farming, and many of the beautiful pastoral scenes associated with the Highlands are a direct result of farming.  Imagine what it would be like to stay on a Highlands farm!  If you are looking for a true country vacation, then Scottish Highlands Farm Accommodation is for you.  A great way to learn not just the culture, but also an integral way of life in the Highlands, a farm accommodation is the perfect place for you and your children to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.  Discover the heritage of crafting and farming, often merged with fishing along the coastline, and really get to know the “real” Scottish Highlands.

Farm accommodation will provide you with breath-taking scenery, immaculate dwellings, and a warm, Scottish country welcome.  It is common to be able to see some magnificent wildlife in conjunction with domestic farm animals, including seals along the coast, stags and hinds, delicate little roe deer, beautiful and elusive red foxes and pine martins, and hawks and falcons.  Highland hospitality is the stuff of legends, and you are sure to enjoy wonderful home cooking at your farm accommodation.  A mouth-watering array of traditional Highland fare is the usual offering, comprised of oatcakes and crowdie, porridge, scones, and of course, shortbread.  All throughout the Highlands, you will discover a selection of world-class cheeses, and often these are regulars at a Highland farm board.  You can also look forward to fresh produce, and premium beef and lamb.  Very likely, you can enjoy treats like venison or other types of game, from the nearby hills and moors.

Staying at a Scottish Highland farm is a quiet, peaceful way to enjoy the Highlands at their best.  If you’re in need of a country retreat and a little relaxation, why not join a Scottish Highland farm family for a little of their country charm.  A working farm will also give you first-hand experience and knowledge of what a farmer’s life is like.  Although the work is never done, you will find that the pace of life is completely different than that of the farmer’s urban counterpart.  Animals and their schedules, the weather and seasons, the planting, nurturing and harvesting of crops are the things which determine the farmer’s life.  Depending upon the time of year, you could be party to the miracle of newborn lambs, the activities of the milking parlour, or the lifting of the tatties. 

Scottish Highland farm accommodation has been upgraded and modernized, to give the visitor the ultimate in comfort and style while maintaining the old world charm and heritage of the traditional steading.  You may find yourself in an iconic croft house, a centuries old farmhouse, or a converted out-building, such as a stable, barn, or coach house.  As well, your farm hosts may have purpose-built modern cottages on their farm property, giving you the newest and most modern option in farm stays.  You can be sure that Scottish Highlands farm accommodation will be to the highest standard and will exude warmth, comfort, and hospitality.

Farm accommodation is a great choice if you wish to make life-long friends and truly get to know some of the people who make the Highlands what it is today.  You will undoubtedly get an insider’s view to the area around you, and you will find that you may be asked to participate in usual farm rituals and chores, if you so choose.  You can enjoy the country life at its best.  Sheep dog trials, gymkhanas, point-to-points, and other country activities may be on offer, as well as u-pick berries, apples, or tatties.  Farmers will be more than happy to give you farm tours, point out the best bird-watching and nature spots, and maybe even a tractor ride.  As well, many farms offer additional activities such as horseback riding, fishing, and some country sports.
