We are open and have created a new safe environment to ensure our guests can enjoy a well deserved break away from the strange times we have experienced recently. We will be offering the same great service as always with measures in place to make sure you are safe.
Good to Go in place and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to Kindale House.
Kindale House is situated in the heart of the beautifully picturesque village of Helmsdale in Sutherland. The house has been tastefully furnished to a very high standard to provide large warm comfortable rooms for those looking for quality accommodation and excellent value for money. We are the highest rated Scottish Tourist Board (STB 4 star), accommodation in the village. We pride ourselves on using good local produce wherever possible (local seafood, game, herbs, and salad from the garden). We are situated within walking distance of all the village amenities including shops, restaurants, pubs, train station, and bus stops. The Timespan Museum and Heritage Centre is a must do, where you can find out all about the history of the village including the clearances, gold panning and so much more. We now have a dining room/residents lounge where you can sit and watch tv or do a jigsaw or just relax with a good book and a glass of wine - we are not licensed but we are happy for you to bring your own. If you are staying more than one night and would like to book dinner please let us know.
"Second stay of the year in this great guesthouse. Great rooms. Great service. Superb dinners by Tommy the chef! Highly recommended for one night or multiple nights. Looking forward to staying again soon!"
Whether one night or a longer stay, we are sure your experience will be one that you will remember for a long time. We are an ideal stop over for those doing the End To End, NC500, or taking the ferry to Orkney. Perfectly situated for trains and buses. Within a short walk from the famous Helmsdale river, if you fancy a day fishing for salmon we can arrange a permit in advance of your arrival, day & week permits are available and we have a rod box for your use too. If you fancy trying your hand at gold panning you can hire all you need from Timespan Heritage Centre which is 2 minutes stroll down the hill from us.
