When Anne Storm Pedersen – along with her husband, the Danish mogul Anders Holch Povlsen – bought this 17th-century farmhouse in the Scottish Highlands in 2011, she enlisted the help of Scandinavian designers who took the art of hygge to heart here. The bed and breakfast – which features four guest rooms in the farmhouse and three other self-catered properties for those looking for more space – is designed to make guests feel at home. The original stone walls, neutral colours, rustic furniture and linen bedding are all in line with classic Danish design, yet still manage to honour the property’s long Scottish heritage.
For anyone staying in the farmhouse, the Killiehuntly staff serve up a generous breakfast spread and a three-course dinner. All ingredients are brought in from the property’s farm, or from local suppliers – think freshly baked bread, fresh eggs, homemade jams, local cheese, lamb chops and colourful vegetables, fruits and herbs. Lunch is a fresh sandwich available to go for those who want to venture outdoors, with activities such as hiking, biking, wildlife-spotting and fishing available nearby.
