Boath House is an extraordinary Grade A listed Regency Georgian mansion set in a 22-acres of gardens surrounded by beautifully maintained lawns, a wildflower meadow, woodlands, a small lake and a Victorian walled garden. Rescued from Historic Scotland’s ‘endangered list’ more than 25 years ago by Don and Wendy Matheson, Boath House has been lovingly restored to its original splendour.
The Mathesons know exactly what appeals to their guests: relaxation, quality and exemplary service are the watchwords. The decor of the house is an eclectic mix of traditional with contemporary influences. Each of the individually styled nine bedrooms are beautifully decorated as well as two cottages in the ground for a more secluded stay. Contemporary works of art are exhibited throughout the house, however the house itself and the design by the acclaimed Scottish architect Archibald Simpson is the real attraction given its simplicity and the mathematical rigour of its design completed in circa 1825.
Bee hives and hens can be seen in the walled garden along with an orchard, vegetable potager, herb parterres, glass housing and herbaceous borders. The Cafe and garden shop is also situated in the walled garden. The 2 acre ornamental lake is stocked with trout and the bog garden produces large amounts of pond life including newts, frogs, toads and dragonflies.
The new garden restaurant is a perfect place to sit and relax after a days exploring the Highlands and offers guests an inviting breakfast room and afternoon tea venue with views out over the lawn and beyond. Boath House pride themselves on a providing a slightly more informal and relaxed style of service and strive in creating the perfect relaxed mini getaway.
