Bijou and beautiful
Welcome to our little oasis, a perfect base for exploring the Black Isle and the northern Highlands of Scotland.
Why stay on the Black Isle
The Black Isle is a peninsula north of Inverness surrounded by the Moray Firth to the south and the Cromarty Firth to the north, with beautiful beaches where you can watch bottlenose dolphins, quirky little seaside towns with cosy pubs and top quality restaurants, fantastic forest walks, waterfalls and wildlife on our doorstep and hills and mountains to explore within a 20 minute drive and beyond.
As the name suggests, we overlook north across the Cromarty Firth to the truly amazing and historic Fyrish Monument, along with the surrounding hills and Ben Wyvis off to the west. At just under 300 metres, it is well worth the climb to the Fyrish Monument, where you will find spectacular views across to the Black Isle and the neighbouring hills. For the more adventurous, Ben Wyvis is within a 45 minute drive and a fantastic climb with even more stunning views.
The Black Isle is a great base for visiting the wider Highlands too, or as a starting or end point for the Route 500. Inverness and Loch Ness are less than 30 minutes away, the west coast just over an hour and the north coast just over two hours, it is all easily within reach and of course the scenery during your journey is stunning.
Wildlife is in abundance – red squirrel, pine martens, roe deer, otters, badgers and with a myriad of birds, it’s a nature lover’s paradise.
Why stay at Fyrish View
The Black Isle is believed locally to have its own microclimate – as we are surrounded by the sea and the hills, we tend to miss the worst of the inclement weather conditions well known to the Highlands – although we can’t guarantee perfect weather! But if you’re a weather geek (like me) the cloud formations over the hills and sunsets can be spectacular and we often get rainbows which end at the bottom of the garden.
If you are looking for a romantic getaway or just peace and tranquillity, an abundance of wildlife, stunning scenery, hill and mountain walking, golden beaches, quirky seaside towns and forest walks, look no further – Fyrish View has it all on its doorstep.
We moved into our lovely home in July 2019, at which point Fyrish View was a neglected block built stable which has been lovingly converted into a studio apartment – shabby chic Highland harled on the outside, contemporary, cosy and clean on the inside – with the aim to make your stay as comfortable as possible with top quality furnishings and accessories.
A king sized bed with luxury Hypnos mattress and 100% cotton sheets, guaranteeing a good night’s sleep before and after a day on the beach or in the hills.
Fully fitted kitchenette with all utensils, fridge, cooker, hob, kettle and toaster.
A comfy sofa, perfectly positioned to read a book or watch TV while taking in the view.
En suite shower room with a powerful shower to relax and revive. Towels provided.
Space available for a travel cot.
Outside private patio area for you to unwind in the evening sun whilst soaking up the view with a glass of wine or a wee dram in hand.
Welcome pack on arrival.
Unfortunately due to the open plan and bijou nature of the property we do not currently allow dogs.

“Staying in Fyrish View for four nights has been a little slice of heaven to break up my travels around the borders, glens and west coast. Fyrish View is very comfortable and has a beautiful view to the north and west over the Cromarty Firth and towards the hills beyond – a must walk during the stay is to go up to the Fyrish Monument. Just 25 minutes beyond Inverness, Fyrish View is so well situated for day trips out. The Black Isle itself is so peaceful and beautiful and the inner Hebrides is so easily within reach for a day touring and walking the beautiful west coast – such as Ullapool and Skye. All the facilities in the stable are very high specification, with well-equipped kitchen and a large private patio to enjoy the evening/end of day. I struggle to remember a quieter place that I have stayed. For those days when you want to stay local, the Black Isle has many beautiful forest and beach/coast walks to allow you to leave the car and go looking for local wildlife. It makes for an ideal location and base for enjoying the area fully and sleeping off big walks.”

“I spent two nights at Fyrish View and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a top quality place to stay in this beautiful part of Scotland. The converted stable block has been fitted out to a very high standard, with everything provided that you would expect from high end self-catering accommodation. The place was immaculate and the bed extremely comfortable. The owners were also extremely friendly and helpful in giving advice on local walks and places to eat”
S Donald, Twyford.
“This was my first ever holiday to The Black Isle, which was not an area of Scotland I knew much about. The whole point of my stay was to get away from it all, so I looked for accommodation outside of Inverness and surrounding towns. I came across Kev and Juliet’s place after doing a Google search. I knew I would get the all-important middle of nowhere feel from their website, but what sold me was the friendly welcome I received from Juliet when I first called and the high standard of accommodation shown on their website. My stay was everything I could have asked for. Great views in the morning and plenty of walking in the amazing Scottish countryside. I loved the mixture of forest and coastal walks. The accommodation was a good standard and well-thought-out. Kev and Juliet were always on hand during my week-long stay whenever I needed any information and guidance on what to do. The best thing I can say is that I am already planning my next trip sometime in September.”
