Description

This cottage is situated on the Beaufort Estate near Inverness. It has been renovated in 2019 with outstanding design and furnishing. It is a joy to be in and makes an ideal holiday home. Located on the historic 400-acre Beaufort Estate, there are views from the rear of the property across the rolling Scottish countryside.

Mid-Lodge is a characterful cottage dating back to the mid-19th century. It is picture perfect and has a wonderful location on an old country lane within a copse of mature trees. It also has a fabulous view across barley fields to Beaufort Castle. Upon entering the hallway, straight ahead is the staircase to the first floo, a bedroom is to the right and the spacious, comfortable living room is to the left. The living room enjoys a large log burner taking centre stage, and a good size Smart TV. It is open plan with the kitchen, which is small but sufficient for cooking hearty Highland meals for six people. The spacious master double bedroom is downstairs, and finished to a good standard.

This cottage is so fantastic you will hardly want to leave, but when you inevitably do there are walks all around the estate to enjoy. A little further afield is the popular village of Beauly, which has a good array of shops, cafés and restaurants to fuel your adventures in the local area. The cosmopolitan city of Inverness is only half an hour’s drive with its castle and St Andrew’s Cathedral. Just a little further east you can explore Culloden, Cawdor and Nairn, or even the Cairngorms National Park which is only a 45-minute drive south. The Moray Firth has a resident pod of bottle nose dolphins which you will have a great chance of seeing from the shore. Walking the beaches along the Moray Firth is a great way to see this part of Scotland and the local wildlife. The North Coast 500 is nearby, so you can follow this scenic route up the east coast to see gems such as the River Helmsdale and Duncansby Head. Or you can easily head west and reach Loch Ness within 20 minutes and continue towards the west coast and the magical Isle of Skye. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.

About the local area

Inverness, Capital of the Highlands lies at the north end of the Great Glen, where the River Ness flows into the Moray Firth. With its suspension bridges across the River Ness and old stone buildings, it is a pretty place which is well-known for its floral displays.

The River Ness provides a key focus within the city, and attractions like the castle, Inverness Cathedral and the Eden Court Theatre can all be found on its banks; together with some of the city's many shops and restaurants.

Follow the River Ness for long enough and you will end up by the shores of the best known loch in Scotland - Loch Ness. Thanks to its famous resident - Nessie, the friendly Loch Ness monster it has become one of the most popular areas for tourists to visit. Explore the visitors centre by the shore and learn the history of this legend. You might even spot this illusive creature for yourself as you stroll the area.

To the East of Inverness is Nairn, rated second in a list of top desirable destinations for 2010! But its not surprising because with its long, sandy, Blue Flag beaches and promenades it competes with some of the popular tourist beaches in the south of England. Its unique micro-climate also helps to ensure that it has more hours of sunshine and less rainfall than towns just 15 miles away.

Off shore The Moray Firth is home to one of only two colonies of dolphins in the UK and they are often spotted from viewpoints along Nairn's shore. The seafront also hosts an active harbour, with boat owners offering trips to see the resident bottle-nose dolphins or simply to view Nairn from a different angle.

Areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Culbin Forest and Culbin Sands Nature Reserve can be observed inland. Enjoy spotting many species of flora and fauna, as well as birds and migratory flocks. And for those who enjoy the invigorating sea air, there are magnificent views across the Moray Firth.
