Mansfield House is a luxury country house hotel
built in the 1870's and
extended in 1902 by the then Provost of Tain.
Mansfield House retains many of its fine original Maitland features
including pine paneling and ornate plaster ceilings, and has been
completely refurbished in the last 3 years to a 4 star standard.
Mansfield House is situated in Easter Ross, the county with the lowest
annual rainfall in Scotland. Although seemingly remote, it is highly
accessible, being only 40 minutes drive from Inverness, which has
air and rail links with London.
