Walking and Cycling

( See Facilities page) Step out of the front door directly on to our extensive farm path network which links directly to medium and longer distance paths and cycle ways. It is possible to walk or cycle to Dingwall (¾ mile), Strathpeffer (6 miles) Garve (10 miles) either on quiet roads or traffic-free trails. Many other routes are available and we have Ordnance maps and guides of the entire Highlands available and are happy to advise on itineraries.

Airstrip
Knockbain Farm has its own grass airstrip which can be open to guests by arrangement.  David keeps his 60 year old vintage aircraft at the airstrip and he has been flying from the wonderful hill top site for over 35 years.  If you would like to know more about how pilots can fly into Knockbain, please arrange with David.
