Inside the Highland Hotel, Strathpeffer there is a framed scroll which reads-

Stuart - This may not be the original location.

Two hospitals - Strathpeffer The Spa Hospital and Strathpeffer Nicholson Red Cross Hospital are listed here:

The former no longer exists as it was destroyed by fire during WW2.

The latter is a private house.
