Apple Tree Cottage is a delightful, traditional, semi-detached stone cottage situated in a quiet lane, just a stone’s throw from the lovely sandy bay and pretty harbour of Balintore. This 19th-century fisherman’s cottage has been beautifully restored and extended, and provides a good standard of accommodation in this quaint and unspoilt seaside village. The living room is bright and spacious, with a feature wood burner set in an original stone hearth. The contemporary kitchen/dining room is extremely well-equipped, including an 8-ring range cooker and a large dining table. It looks out across the fully enclosed cottage gardens, with lawns, mature trees and shrubs, and a particularly prolific apple tree, from which the cottage gets its name. There is a solid wood picnic table at the far end which provides a quiet and peaceful spot for alfresco dining. There is a twin bedroom on the ground floor and two double bedrooms on the first floor, all attractively presented with colour co-ordinated soft furnishings.
Apple Tree Cottage is ideally located for exploring this lovely unspoilt coastline, which is rarely busy. Dolphins and porpoises are often seen in the bay and there are a wide variety of seabirds seen in the area. Balintore has a good selection of village facilities, all within a short walk, including a pub, restaurant, café and a small local store. The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise with cycling, hill walking, golf, fishing, sailing, canoeing and surfing all enjoyed locally. The owners have their own horse riding establishment and are happy to offer a discount to visitors to the cottage. The nearby town of Tain, just a 10-minute drive away has an excellent selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafés and pubs. It enjoys a wide variety of sporting and recreational facilities, including tennis courts, golf and bowling club, all of which are available to visitors (at cost). It is also home to the renowned Highland malt whisky distillery Glenmorangie. Balintore is also ideally located for exploring the whole of the Highland region, and the well-known North Coast 500 route runs close by. Beach 200 yards. Shop and restaurant 300 yards, pub 200 yards.
