The Fraser family welcome you to Reelig Estate,
7 miles west from Inverness.
The ideal location for exploring the Scottish Highlands.
Stay in our self-catering chalets, and enjoy the peace and tranquillity
of this small estate surrounded by the local flora, fauna and wildlife.
Whether you want to relax and enjoy sunset views,
enjoy a ringside seat for wildlife visitors, or have endless walks with your
four legged friends ...we have a chalet for you.
Over the years many people have stayed in the cottages and chalets at Reelig and have enjoyed their time relaxing and exploring the Highlands from this family-run estate.
The Frasers have been at Reelig for over 500 years. The estate rises from low agricultural ground through beech woods and firs to open moorland hundreds of feet above sea level. The cottages on the estate, once homes for the miller, the gardener etc. have been refurbished. These properties are leased on a residential basis giving the estate a real feel of community.
In the eighteenth century the Frasers of Reelig supported the Jacobite cause and a member of the next generation, Edward Satchwell Fraser (1751-1835) fought in the War of American Independence. Two of his five sons, James Baillie Fraser (1783-1856)
and William Fraser (1784-1835) distinguished themselves in India, William in the political field and James as a painter and author. William died in India but James came home to improve his estate, in particular by continuing his father's work planting, building and creating walks in what is known locally as the Fairy Glen. Ownership was transferred to the Forestry Commission in 1949 and is now known as the Tall Trees Walk.
Exciting news for 2020... Reelig estate is delighted to have been able to offer the Highland group Riding for the Disabled, a permanent home here on the estate. Permission to create a flagship center - designed specifically for the RDA was granted by the highland council in 2019 and construction work starts February 2020. The center will be in its own field away from the day to day running of the estate so that neither parties are disturbed by the other but will look to compliment each others activities as we move forward together.

Rustic on the outside, cosy and modern on the inside! A beautiful chalet
in the woods with all the mod-cons and wonderful attention to detail. Ideally located for walks and exploring the countryside. The visiting wildlife were wonderful, squirrels, wood peckers, deer and a resident badger!
