For something a little bit special 'The Bell' ticks all the boxes.
The stunning private 7 acre woodland setting with its natural pond, secluded seating areas and abundance of wildlife is hard to beat and the house itself is quite striking in design with its curved roof, larch cladding, vaulted ceilings and floor to ceilings windows.
If all that's not enough the interior certainly does not disappoint.
With eco-friendly underfloor heating and a homely yet contemporary style, guest will be most impressed.
The bright spacious accommodation is set out on two floors and the large open plan living area with its woodburner is a sociable place where meals can be prepared with ease and enjoyed together.
Open the doors out onto the large private decked patio and enjoy a quiet read or morning coffee where the only noise is from the birds!
There are two bedrooms and a bathroom at ground floor level and the first floor has another bedroom and a shower room.
A bonus is the large mezzanine style second sitting room with views over the main living area and also benefiting from the floor to ceiling window views.
A stroll around the grounds will take you to the quirky summer house, which is a converted bus!
Fresh home produce such as bread, jam and eggs are available and an honesty box is provided so you can simply help yourself!
Nairn itself has excellent local services and boasts two championship golf courses and of course a wonderful long sandy beach.
The location is ideal for those who want to tour the Highlands and a day trip across the sea to Skye is possible, or closer to home pick up the Malt Whisky Trail and visit the various distilleries.
Culloden Moor is well worth a visit or explore the local castles at Cawdor and Brodie and of course a drive along Loch Ness never goes wrong.
So much to do and what a wonderful, special holiday home to enjoy.

About the location
Inverness 16 miles.
Nairn is an attractive and lively seaside town dating back to Victorian times. It has long been a popular holiday destination and is just 16 miles from the town of Inverness. Nairn even lays claim to being one of the driest and sunniest places in the country! The town offers some of the top beaches in Scotland and cleanest bathing waters in Britain. Also, one of the only two dolphin colonies in the UK is based in the Moray Firth. Nairn is steeped in history and is closely linked with the Battle of Culloden, whilst nearby Fort George is Europe’s best preserved 18th century military fortification. Shakespeare’s famed Cawdor Castle and Brodie Caste are both within 15 mins drive. Golfing enthusiasts will be attracted to the two 18-hole championship courses, including the Nairn Golf Club, and the town also has an outdoor tennis court as well as a squash court for hire. The yearly Nairn Highland Games in August draws a wide crowd and The Nairn Book and Arts Festival is a popular year event. Whitewater rafting, tubing and cliff jumping are all available for those with a spirit for adventure. Day trips from the local airport are available to Orkney and Shetland and the Cairngorm National Park with skiing and hiking are within 1 hour. Nairn is an ideal centre for exploring, or just relaxing.
