Kindale House is situated in the heart of the beautiful picturesque village of Helmsdale. 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.
"Lovely place to stay. Room was large, comfortable, clean. Breakfast was hearty, absolutely fabulous. Dinner was better than any other food i had in the area. The owners were warm and friendly. I couldn't recommend it more."
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. 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.
There are some wonderful walks nearby too.
