Coronavirus Travel Advice

We regret that Invicta House B&B will close for business on December 22 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions and will reopen on Sunday January 17 at the earliest, subject to Tier 4 restrictions being removed from the Highland area at that time. The only exception to this is that accommodation is available for key workers and NHS staff on duty. Any bookings for these staff will have to be made direct with Invicta House since online bookings for this period have been disabled.

We regret the necessity in enforcing these restrictions, implemented because all of mainland Scotland enters Tier 4 on Boxing Day in line with the dictates of the Scottish Government. We hope to reopen very soon, and that we get to welcome you through our doors in 2021.

Welcome to Invicta House

Having opened our doors for the first time in summer 2015, our single room (Clynelish) was refurbished again in January 2017 and our double room (Balmenach) refurbished in January 2019.  Our twin bedded room (Ardbeg) will be closed in April 2019 for refurbishment, to include a new carpet and anti-slip flooring on the en-suite shower room. Invicta House B&B offers a Highlands welcome for visitors whether staying just one night or longer.  We are dog-friendly and offer two ground floor rooms with en-suite bathroom facilities and one single room on the first floor with shared bathroom.  Situated just 300 yards off the A9 road, we are in a perfect location for walkers, cyclists and motorists alike who may be tackling the North Coast 500 or Land's End to John O'Groats challenges; we offer ample (dry) overnight storage for bikes and camping gear and are just a few minutes' walk into the village centre.

All rooms feature Freeview TV, free Wi-Fi internet connection, hair dryer and complimentary tea, coffee and biscuit tray. 

Golspie is an ideal base for touring the far north of Scotland, ideal for bird watching, walking, cycling, mountain biking, fishing and golf – all the outdoor activities for which the Highlands is world famous.  We have teamed up with Golspie Golf Club in a local initiative to promote golf on this magnificent yet underused links course which is almost on our front doorstep; we are now able to offer a substantial discount voucher to all our guests who would like to play there - for full details, see the 'Golspie Golf Club' page on this website .  In the summer months, there is plenty of sightseeing to do as well – the ancestral home of the Dukes of Sutherland, Dunrobin Castle, is in the village just 5 minutes in the car from Invicta House or one stop on the train which runs from our back garden – Golspie railway station is literally 30 seconds from our back garden gates!  If Single Malt whisky appeals, there are a number of superb distilleries within easy reach, each brand with their own distinct character and unique palate. 

It cannot be stressed too much how great the need to pre-book your accommodation in The Highlands is: the summer months frequently see all temporary accommodation in the area sell out, and the NC500 has proved exceptionally popular, especially with cyclists and walkers.  It is essential to book in advance during peak season (June - September) otherwise you may struggle to find any accommodation at all.

We accept Visa & Mastercard Credit/Debit cards, American Express, JCB and cash.  We do not accept cheques unless by prior arrangement, nor do we accept Eurocheques under any circumstances.  We are pleased to feature on a number of independent tourism websites : Bed & Breakfast, North Coast 500, and Trip Advisor - check them out at,, and respectively.  North Coast 500 is an especially good site for planning touring holidays north of Inverness.

Welcome to the Invicta House website; we hope to see you here very soon, and that you’ll want to come back again and again.  There really is nowhere quite like the Highlands of Scotland!
