The property

Dingwall 6 miles.

A well-presented, traditional detached stone cottage, ideally located in the friendly Highland village of Evanton in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

This Highland cottage retains some charming original features and yet provides up to date technology and style.

This comfortable Highland cottage suits a family or group of friends who appreciate the spacious beauty of the surrounding countryside and the convenience of having good local services on the doorstep.

The upper floor of this Highland cottage has three spacious bedrooms, two of which have lovely open views over the garden and across to the hills on the Black Isle.

The farmhouse-style kitchen is a very sociable place for a family meal and the sitting room oozes comfort and style with its leather sofas and welcoming woodburning stove.

A conservatory at the front of this cottage near Dingwall provides an alternative space for relaxation and has French doors that lead to the pretty front patio and garden, which is ideal for enjoying an alfresco meal.

The quiet village of Evanton boasts a good local inn providing bar food, which is within close proximity to the cottage, and there is also a small local shop.

The Royal Burgh of Dingwall is a few minutes’ drive away and offers enhanced facilities including a Tesco and an excellent choice of restaurants.

The pretty Cromarty Firth coastline is close by and here you will see the basking seals who have made their home there due to the availability of passing salmon!

From Evanton take a short woodland walk to the Black Rock Gorge, a dramatic black box canyon that featured in one of the Harry Potter movies.

At the end of a busy day you will be more than happy to return to the utter comfort of your highland cottage.

About the location


Strathpeffer 5 miles; Inverness 14 miles; Chanory Point 17 miles.

The attractive market town of Dingwall is situated at the head of the Cromarty Firth and has a rich history dating back to Norse times. The town today enjoys an excellent range of services and facilities and its pedestrianised main street boasts a generous range of speciality cafes and charming small shops. Why not follow the Dingwall Heritage Trail, a walk that will take only 1 1/2 hours but will provide a wonderful insight into the history of this area? Close to Dingwall is the Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer, which is well worth a visit, or perhaps take a short drive to Chanory Point where the Moray Firth Dolphins are quite often seen jumping close to shore.
