Invicta House B&B Information

Description

Invicta House B&B is located in Golspie on the shores of the tranquil Dornoch Firth. We offer one ground floor double room with en suite toilet & shower room, one ground floor twin bedded room with en suite toilet & shower room and one 1st Floor single room with shared toilet bathroom (there is a sink in the room). Golspie is a haven for those who revel in the outdooor activities for which the Highlands of Scotland are famous : golf, hiking, fishing, cycling and mountain biking are all locally available amid some of the most spectacular scenery in Great Britain. We are located on both the Lands End - John O'Groats and North Coast 500 routes and offer free and secure overnight storage for bikes. Little Ferry Scottish Nature Reserve is within 5 minutes from our door, where deer roam in the woods and seals bask on Loch Fleet's sandbanks. Sightings of Ospreys are common and plenty of migrating birds spend winter here or stop en route to their nesting grounds. Golspie Golf Club is a couple of lusty blows from the House and the nearby clubs such as Tain, Royal Dornoch and Brora are all within easy reach. If you're into Malt whisky, the nearby distilleries of Glenmorangie, Balblair and Clynelish will surely appeal. We are just seconds from Golspie railway station and there is free parking on Ferry Road.

Opened by Andy & Michelle Cooper in early 2015, Invicta House was rescued from a derelict state over the course of the years since then and continues to date; although the interior is now mostly complete, the garden and land beyond continues to be returned to a decent state. A former Local Government Officer, Michelle also runs The Fabric Fairy, a shop wholly within Invicta House, which specialises in fabrics for Patchwork & Quilting but also stocks a small supply of other craft goods; The Fabric Fairy won a national award in 2016 for being the Best Independent Haberdashery Shop in Scotland and continues to serve the local craft community. We speak French and a smattering of German, and welcome visitors of all nationalities. We have a dog, Isla, who is very welcoming to other dogs and humans alike (!) - she is very vocal when guests arrive, but this should not be mistaken because she is very friendly and welcoming. Being half Collie, she is likely to want to round you up and hates it when guests leave!
