About Drummondreach

The name Drummondreach has been associated with this area and farm for a few hundred years. In Scottish, drummond means “at the ridge” and reach is a suffix meaning “belonging to”. So here, you belong to the ridge. The first half of the name is easy to pronounce. It’s drum-on-d. But how do you pronounce the -reach? Is it reach, like reach for the stars? No. It’s ree-ah-ch and that last sound you make by aspirating the c and the h at the back of your throat. It’s not necessarily the easiest sound, but it’s fun to try it. The word “steading” means a farm and its buildings. In fact, this building was a stable.

Drummondreach Steading is a three bedroom, two bathroom cottage, sleeps six and has a cedar barrel sauna for your enjoyment.

Available to let for your holidays in the idyllic and evocative Scottish Highlands.

The cottage is located in a rural area just 25 minutes from Inverness and 10 minutes to Dingwall.

The cottage is referred to as “Skylarks” for purposes of booking.
