Owner Profile

Property Owner

Elizabeth & Graham

How long have you owned the property?

12 years

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?

The house was a complete renovation for us as it was falling down when we bought it 12 years ago. It's a captivating house that we fell in love with in a really peaceful spot.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?

We have had one or two but we treat them just like every guests that comes to stay at Ross-shire Hall and keep it on the down low.

What’s the strangest or most difficult guest request you’ve ever received?

This is a hard question... most difficult guests might be the ones who turned the heating on full but opened all the windows day and night!

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

Really do?

You must taste the Whisky! Visit a distillery for a tour and tasting. Local distillery Dalmore have fascinating tours and some very special whisky.

Really eat?

Well I would have to say here! Have Graham cook for you, choose from great local ingredients and nobody has to drive home!

Really see?

Visit the black rock gorge, just a short walk from the house and so so pretty you will stand in awe of the place

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?

The Highlands of Scotland is really beautiful in the Spring and the Autumn, the changing seasons, the great outdoors. Visit Loch Glass it's a hidden gem just up the road from Ross-shire Hall.



  • Outstanding!

    Posted by Donald on 02/11/2020

    We rented Ross-shire Hall in September. This is an outstanding property. The owners attention to detail is excellent. It is spotless, the kitchen is amazingly well appointed, the bedrooms and bathrooms all superb. There is no consideration which has not been thought of. The catering was impacted by COVID but Graham is a wonderful chef and provided endless meals left in the kitchen for our group. The grounds are beautifully kept and secluded. The house is brilliantly located with so much on offer for all ages nearby. Elizabeth and Graham are the best and we cannot recommend this house more highly. It is expensive but for what you get well worth it.

  • A privilege

    Posted by Anon. on 24/09/2019

    I had the privilege of staying with nine other guests at Ross-shire for three nights. It was by far the best accommodations over the course of our 10-day trip through Scotland, having the place all to ourselves, with delicious breakfasts and dinners cooked by Graham and wonderful hosting and welcoming by Elizabeth... we couldn't have asked for anything more. Comfortable, spacious, clean, secluded... Ross-shire Hall has it all!

  • Stunning

    Posted by Anon. on 15/08/2019

    The house is stunning, very impressive and well maintained as is the grounds around the house. Beautiful location with spectacular views and walks. The house has 7 bedrooms all en-suite and tastefully decorated. The beds were so comfortable and additional camp beds added for kids if required and plenty space to do so. Everything was really nice and well looked after. The towels are lovely with nice products in the bathrooms. Graham cooked dinner on the Saturday night and it was exceptionally good. The service and attention to detail was perfect. The girls that worked with him were lovely and so efficient. He is an excellent chef, well worth spoiling yourself and have dinner made for you. I honestly cannot rate this experience highly enough. We didn't want to go home! The owners, Graham and Elizabeth are fantastic hosts who should be so proud of what they have achieved.

  • Have to drag ourselves away.

    Posted by Deborah on 03/09/2018

    You just have to walk out the door to experience the stunning scenery, it’s so unbelievably beautiful here. We loved Cromarty, pottering around, Sutor Creek Café and the boat trip. Cycling and quad biking at Aviemore and fabulous walks on your doorstep.

  • Unique Atmosphere

    Posted by Jose on 11/07/2018

    Lovely house and staff! Great vacations in an unique atmosphere.

  • This is the place of fairytales

    Posted by Sacha on 02/07/2018

    Thank for you an amazing time in this wonderful castle, like a fairy tale. I can honestly say Elizabeth, Graham and their team have completely blown us away. The welcome, the service and the food were exceptional, everything was perfect.

  • Wow, wow, wow, what can we say?

    Posted by Mike on 08/04/2018

    Absolutely fantastic! Graham and Elizabeth, you and your team made our day so special. Your hospitality is second to none Words cannot thank you enough.

  • Scotland at its best

    Posted by Vanessa P on 13/09/2015

    Our family of 14 had a fantastic stay at this property. It's spacious, very comfortable and very well appointed. The kitchen was the hub and the formal living room with the open fireplace was a favourite hangout come evening. It's also very well located for day trips further north. We would definitely go again in the future. The only thing missing was a clothes dryer which is much needed given the wet weather of Scotland and a prolonged stay.

  • Scottish Spirit

    Posted by Me & Mrs Lopez-Perea on 15/10/2011

    We will bring this Scottish spirit with us to Spain and it will never leave us! Thanks for everything, it's been great!

    Posted by Mr & Mrs Wallace on 24/02/2010
