Guests are welcome to take a stroll around our garden, a peaceful haven alive with birdsong and buzzing bees. You'll see the garden when eating your breakfast but, if it's dry and warm, feel free to sit outside and make the most of it. The garden changes a lot throughout the year but from spring to autumn there is always something of interest. Home Farm attracts a large variety of birds, depending on the season: goldcrests, blue tits, tree sparrows, chaffinches, greenfinches, goldfinches, siskins, tits, great tits, coal tits, long-tailed tits, blackbirds, thrushes, redwing, fieldfare, robins, dunnocks, wrens, jackdaws; rooks; hooded crows; the list goes on, and we get the occasional sparrowhawk hunting for his dinner. The nearby woods contain red squirrel, and both red kites and buzzards can be seen soaring over the garden. Throughout the summer, swallows, swifts and martins can be seen overhead and often drink from our pond.
Pots of flowers are used in the garden to give splashes of colour throughout the year. We garden with wildlife in mind, we compost as much waste as possible, plant native trees as well as more exotic ones and make sure that our plants are good for bees, bumblebees, butterflies and hover flies. We have several nest boxes and log piles where insects can hide.
Our garden pond acts as a magnet for all kinds of wildlife along with many birds visiting to both bath and drink. The pond margins provide a home for frogs, newts and toads, whilst the warmer summer days attract both damsel and dragonflies.
The garden enjoys open views to the hills of the west and our nearest “Munroe” Ben Wyvis, ample seating encourages you to linger.
There is so much to do and see why waste time staying at different places each night, wasting precious hours driving from one B&B to another, getting stressed along the way. Spend the whole day enjoying your holiday, safe in the knowledge that you can return to Home Farm each evening, where you can relax in the lounge or the garden, we will always aim to make your holiday an enjoyable experience.
Home Farm is the ideal base for a few days quiet exploration. There are lots of places to visit and things to do, all within easy travelling distance of our front door.
