My girlfriend and I might be going to take a week in October, probably 15th - 22nd, in the Dingwall area. It is a long story. Can anyone recommend self catering accommodation in that general area (i.e. within half an hour or so north of Inverness and not costing a total fortune!) and also make any suggestions for some stalking? I'm not looking anything fancy for the stalking and as I will be up with the girlfriend might prefer a morning or evening rather than a whole day on the hill for reds so forest for sika or roe might be ideal. Somewhere "beginner" friendly might be nice as it would be great if I could get the girlfriend to shoot a deer - she has never shot a rifle before so somewhere willing to let her have a few shots until she gets into it would be great. Also hinds are acceptable as not looking to spend a fortune as will be in the Hebrides for stags in September so likely to be bankrupt!
I know it is a lot to ask, and also that it might not work out like that as the girlfriend might want to stay beside M&S in the centre of Inverness but I thought to ask as I know there are a lot of people on here with knowledge of that area.
