Map, Location & Local Information

Ross-shire Hall is situated only 30 minutes north of Inverness, just outside the small village of Evanton, Ross-shire. The house is nestled among woodlands and peaceful farmland within easy reach of Inverness-shire, Sutherland, Ross-shire and the Black Isle.

For salmon and trout Fishing or guided fly fishing excursions, the owners recommend local fishing professionals TroutQuest. Enjoy guided excursions to fish for salmon on the River Alness or brown trout on one of the many beautiful lochs in the area. TroutQuest has access to prime salmon and sea trout fishing on the private beats of the River Alness and can offer house guests weekly or day permits subject to availability. For guests who are not familiar with fishing, fly fishing instruction is available on a private stocked lochan on the nearby Novar Estate. The owners can also arrange for private beats on the River Alness, where TroutQuest will be delighted to teach any group.

Many of the top golf courses in the north of Scotland are within a forty mile radius of the house. Go north and admire the stunning views of Brora, Golspie and Tain all of which are pay and play courses. Guests can also play the highest regarded course in the area, Royal Dornoch, with stunning views over the Dornoch Firth. It was recently rated in the top fifteen courses in the world. Head south towards Inverness and choose from Fortrose & Rosemarkie, Nairn, the Walker Cup venue in 1999, and Nairn Dunbar, a highly rated championship links course. These options offer some of the best golfing land in the area.

Take a boat trip out in the Moray Firth and go dolphin watching and see some wildlife up close, including seals and red kites. There is also a sunset boat trip with wine and BBQ for a party available. Guests can also walk out to Chanantry Point to spot bottlenose dolphins at the turn of the tide.

Whether a day of grouse, pheasant or clay-pigeon shooting, or a full week of stalking on some of the Highlands best estates, the owners can arrange hunting trips for guests with qualified professionals.

Explore the local area to its fullest and enjoy the great outdoors by taking either a short local walk or a guided walk, where guests will be joined by a professional who can show them some hidden treasures and tell them more about the area which surrounding. The house staff can also meet guests with a picnic lunch halfway to give them a chance to re-charge.

Mountain biking is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, and there are some fantastic places to cycle just on the doorstep. Guests looking for a quieter cycle in some beautiful scenery or a more demanding and muddy off-road experience can borrow bikes from the house or have specialist instructors point them in the right direction.

Reviews for Ross-shire Hall

Ross-shire Hall Reviews


  • 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!

  • Such a special weekend

  • We'll be back!

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

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.
