The property

Enjoying a perfect position for exploring the wonder of the Scottish Highland is this charming, detached abode, Blantyre Cottage.

Situated within the small village of Muir of Ord, this all ground-floor holiday accommodation is perfect for families to explore this magical countryside and visit the towns of Beauly, Dingwall, and the capital city of the Highlands, Inverness.

Enter Blantyre Cottage by the main door at side of the building making your way into the warmth of the sitting/dining room, where a charming coal-effect fire offers a sense of tranquillity during the cold winter months.

Sink into the sofa with a good book in hand to unwind or while away a couple of hours with your loved ones at the dining table, playing a board game brought from home.

Look forward to cooking up a storm within the well-equipped kitchen, retrieving ingredients from the fridge/freezer and making use of the mod cons, and the breakfast bar makes a great spot for enjoying a glass of wine whilst dinner simmers on the hob.

Completing the interior of this all ground-floor property is the double bedroom and a twin bedroom with a zip/link feature, allowing you to amend the set up to suit the needs of your group.

There is an external utility, so that you can get laundry done after a muddy walk around, with space for storing your bikes and other outdoor equipment. Within the garden, enjoy your morning coffee whilst overlooking the golf course, or enjoy a spot of alfresco dining while your canine companion has a run around. Enjoy a scenic stroll into the centre of the village, home to a selection of shops for picking up the essentials, a bakery, a café, a takeaway and a number of hotels with bars, for that well-deserved beverage.

Attractions within the town include the neighbouring golf course, the 17th Century Kilcoy Castle and the award-winning Glen Ord Distillery Visitor Centre, famous for producing the only remaining single malt scotch whisky distillery on the Black Isle. Historical landmarks, which are worth a visit within the area, include the Touchstone Maze, the ruins of the Red Castle in Killearnan and the Beaufort Castle, a Baronial-style mansion built in 1880.

For those seeking walking routes, you can discover the Dunglass Island, stroll around Loch Ussie or enjoy the beautiful scenery of Reelig Glen. Alternatively, travel to Inverness, where you will find a larger selection of amenities and can admire the magnificent architecture of Inverness Castle before touring Inverness Cathedral.

Blantyre Cottage promises a peaceful escape that the whole family can enjoy.

About the location


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 15 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..
