Ben Wyvis Hotel
Ben Wyvis Hotel is situated in idyllic woodland in the Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer, set in the shadow of Ben Wyvis. Guests arrive to the imposing façade of Ben Wyvis, yet indoors a warm and friendly welcome awaits you. The mansion is full of character and is all about traditional Scottish hospitality complemented by the nature and adventure that sits on the doorstep. Our mansion house with its grandeur will suit travellers from far and wide looking for a great base to explore northern Scotland.
The grounds and five acres of landscaped mature gardens are impressive. Parking is free and ample, making Ben Wyvis well suited to small groups, tours and larger coaches. Already a popular stopover choice for Highland and island tours in Scotland, we welcome a large amount of groups every year and are well practiced at accomodating group needs. In addition to groups, and due to the proximity of the town Invergordon and the dry docks, Ben Wyvis is a good choice for corporate stays related to oil industry rigging and we welcome corporate guest enquiries in the area.
