Strathpeffer is an idyllic village, nestled in the glens and mountains of the Scottish Highlands.  Formerly a spa town, Strathpeffer is often compared to picturesque Harrogate or a Bavarian Mountain resort. 

In the Victorian Era, Strathpeffer was a popular Spa Resort, owing to the discovery of Sulphurous Springs in the 18th century.  The ‘Pump Room,’ which can be found in the middle of the village dates back to the 19th century.  The arrival of the railway in Dingwall in 1862 opened the village up to new possibilities and visitors.  In 1885, a branch line from the Kyle of Lockalsh was built.  Today, trains no longer bring visitors to Strathpeffer, but the Victorian Railway Station still stands.  The Station is hugely popular with visitors to the village.  The Old Railway is also home to the Highland Museum of Childhood, a fascinating exhibition which portrays childhood life in the Scottish Highlands.

The location of Strathpeffer makes it an ideal base for exploring the Highlands.  There are many walkways which lead to even more discoveries.  Follow the forest tracks to Cnoc Mar and Knock Farril to discover a Pictish Hill Fort with stunning vistas that will certainly hold a lasting impression.
Whether you are looking to delve into the history of Strathpeffer or connect with the natural beauty of the Highlands, there is something for every visitor to relate to and appreciate.
