Accommodation Description:

Sonnhalde is a fully modernised Victorian Villa with that “nice to come home to relaxing atmosphere”. It was built by a young pioneering Swiss doctor in the 1880s to be used as his family home and as a rest and recuperation centre for his patients in the Victorian spa town of Kingussie.

The Sonnhalde is a well appointed guest house with views overlooking Kingussie. Why don’t you relax and enjoy a day out with us on one of his mystery tours in the heart of the highland glens. We do the driving and the chatting and you will be introduced to places that are off the beaten track.

This is our 20th year of running Photographic, Fly fishing, Natural History and History tours. This area of the highlands has a unique variety of habitats all in a relatively small area attracting the wildlife, some of which turn pure white in winter. Species such as the Osprey fly here from West Africa to rear their young, and we are always on the lookout for Golden Eagles and other birds of prey and the large mammals, red in colour.

We show you the beautiful views known to the locals, (and others). We travel through part of Monarch of the Glen country, places you may have seen on the B.B.C television series. The identification of the outside filming locations has resulted in a household competition for us and many of our friends can be spotted in the series.
