Welcome to The Dairy at Daviot. A converted 19th century farm steading offering luxury self catering accommodation set on a private estate in the spectacular Highlands of Scotland. Run by a 4th generation farming family.
The Dairy's idyllic countryside setting close to the cosmopolitan City of Inverness, gateway to the Highlands with its excellent road, rail and air links, makes the Dairy the perfect place to explore the area's wealth of attractions, outdoor activities and breathtaking scenery.
Whether you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday, a romantic break, a walking holiday exploring the staggeringly beautiful Highland scenery on foot or looking to take advantage of the numerous and diverse golf courses in the area The Dairy is the ideal place for you to stay.
The Dairy is ideal for an action packed family holiday with plenty to choose from, perhaps a spot of bottlenose dolphin-watching, a visit to see Mercedes the polar bear at the Highland Wildlife centre or take in some of the numerous castles in the area, Cawdor Castle near Inverness, Urquhart Castle overlooking Loch Ness and there is always the new Culloden Battlefield visitor centre to explore.
Our six luxuriously appointed apartments named after traditional dairy breeds, are arranged around the original cobbled courtyard and all of the apartments offer views onto the surrounding fields, woodlands, farm animals and wildlife.
