The Property

Muir of Ord 2 miles. This superior detached Highland cottage is thought once to have been a sporting lodge and is most likely over 300 years old, set in the countryside two miles from the town of Muir of Ord. Now totally refurbished, this Muir of Ord cottage still retains the quality and charm of bygone days, combined with the utter comfort and facilities required by the discerning holidaymakers of today. Set in private gardens in the heart of the Highlands, and surrounded by green fields, this Scottish Highlands cottage is located on a working farm, in an area well known for its fishing and outdoor sports; in fact the cottage is only 200 yards from the River Conon. Standing regally at the end of a flower-lined driveway, this Muir of Ord cottage cannot fail to impress, and is ideal for a family gathering or group of friends who really want to explore this fabulous area and yet spend time relaxing in the quiet comfort of this Highland cottage. Luxuriously appointed throughout, the accommodation includes a ground floor bedroom with en-suite, and four further bedrooms on the upper floor, two with en-suites. There are two sitting rooms, both with woodburning stoves and big comfortable sofas. Double doors lead out from the formal dining room to a large patio area with furniture and BBQ. The farmhouse-style dining kitchen in this Highlands cottage also has a woodburning stove, making it a most sociable space for relaxing and informal dining. Completing this immaculately-presented Muir of Ord cottage is a large utility/boot room just off the kitchen. The gardens surrounding this Highland cottage provide seclusion and peace and yet just a short drive away the towns of Muir of Ord and Beauly offer excellent services whilst Aviemore and the Cairngorms National Park are less than an hour away!

About the location

MUIR OF ORD

Beauly 2.5 miles.

The small Highland village of Muir of Ord lies close to the Beauly Firth and is conveniently situated for easy access to towns such as Beauly, Dingwall and the capital city of the Highlands, Inverness, some 10 miles to the east. Another major attraction is the Glen Ord Distillery and Visitor Centre, a 5 star award-winning visitor experience, which is open all the year round and well worth a visit. Muir of Ord has a pretty high street and good hotels, and just a few miles away the town of Beauly offers a quality shopping experience where visitors can find the finest Scottish tweeds, knitwear and crafts as well as smart boutiques and intimate restaurants. The whole area known as ‘The Black Isle’ has some of the prettiest scenery in Scotland with stunning glens where flora and fauna abound. Glen Affric, a National Nature Reserve, has been called the most beautiful of all the Scottish glens, and is an ideal location for walkers and cyclists with quiet tracks leading you off road and deep into the glen.
