    “Great location for Dingwall, ...”
    Great location for Dingwall, Inverness, Loch Ness and Black Isle. Lots of great walks and scenery to enjoy nearby. Also a fine base for exploring the mountains and a wonderful north golf coast.

The property

This sweet stone semi-detached cottage is located in the quiet and friendly village of Marybank in the beautiful Scottish Highlands.

With roses next to the door, Cottage Fia is deceptively spacious and is ideal for a family or group of friends who will enjoy exploring this unspoilt part of Scotland together.

This delightful cottage has a generous fitted kitchen with dining area together with a useful utility room, which has direct access out to the rear garden.

There is a nicely presented sitting room with welcoming open fire and a single bedroom and bathroom at ground floor level, whilst on the first floor is a twin and double bedroom.

With a small private garden to the front along with a parking space, there is also a large rear garden, mainly lawned with a pretty seating and BBQ area.

From the rear of the cottage there are views to Ben Wyvis and the surrounding mountains and hills.

Guests will most certainly appreciate the outdoor space here and enjoy opportunities for some alfresco dining in the summer months.

Marybank lies close to the River Conon, a very popular fishing river and permits are available locally.

It also has a small hotel just a very short walk from the cottage, which is ideal for visitors who want to enjoy a relaxing drink at the end of an active day.

Muir of Ord is close by and offers a great selection of shops and hotels, as well as a riding stable.

Ideally situated for touring the Highlands, visitors will enjoy Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness with its excellent visitors centre or perhaps venture up to Culloden Battlefield and soak up the rather special atmosphere and history there.

With so much to see and do and with beautiful scenery and wildlife in abundance makes this cottage an enjoyable base at all times of the year.
