Discover the country cottage kitchen and charm-filled dining room where you can settle down with your loved ones and admire the lovely outlook over the valley.
The lounge is just as inviting, a delightful haven to make the most of your downtime, with the warmth of the woodburning stove to elevate those cooler evenings.
A classic family bathroom finishes the properties interior to a standard of quality, and there is a vestibule area provided for coats and boots to be left.
Stroll outside to the enclosed garden with mature flower borders, or spend an hour or two in the rear garden with raised beds and a decked platform, with views leaning towards the hills and valley, with herds of grazing red deer on the other side of the fence.
The location is ideally placed for day trips to both the east and west coasts and fabulous beaches are just waiting to be uncovered.

The fishing and ferry port of Ullapool is well worth the visit, while Gairloch and the west coast offer views to the Isle of Skye, Harris and Lewis from beautiful white sand beaches.
Whale and dolphin cruises are available from the pier in Gairloch, a beautiful part of the country.
About the location
Marybank 13 miles; Muir of Ord 17 miles.
Strathconon is well placed for Ben Wyvis, and has great walks to remember! There is a wealth of wildlife in the area including polecats, red squirrels and stoats. The area is fantastic for bird watchers, in the location there are peregrine falcon, red kite, golden eagle, green woodpecker, siskins and treecreepers. From Inverness harbour there are boat trips on the Moray Firth to see one of the local dolphin pods, if you are in Rosemarkie you can also look out from the point as that is a good dolphin spotting area. Less easy to spot is the Loch Ness monster, but there are boat trips just south of Inverness where you can try your luck. There is a children’s play area at Drumnadrochit which can be driven to via the scenic route through Cannich, and the closest public swimming pools are in Dingwall and Inverness - the Inverness facility is larger with both leisure and swimming pools, the Dingwall pool is well worth the visit and the ice skating rink is near the Inverness pool.
