Rose Cottage enjoys a peaceful setting yet is within a mile of all amenities. Situated in a quiet no through road and next to the owner’s home, with views across open countryside, it offers the best of both worlds. This beautifully presented, detached modern cottage has been furnished and equipped to a very good standard and will appeal to couples looking for a romantic retreat in the heart of the Highlands.

The main living area is open plan, and this spacious room is accessed through floor to ceiling patio doors that drink in the light and add to the bright, modern interior. The living room is particularly large, with a superb sofa, plenty of comfortable seating and a 42” wall mounted Smart TV for cosy nights in. The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped, with built-in units and an attractive breakfast bar. Stairs lead up to the large double bedroom with a kingsize bed. This delightful room carries on the theme of roses within the cottage, with pretty soft furnishings and paintings to match. The views from here across the open countryside to the hills beyond are an added feature. Outside there is a private and secluded patio garden with solid wood dining table, as well as a barbecue; ideal for al fresco dining.

Rose Cottage is situated just a mile from the thriving Highland town of Dingwall. It has an excellent range of amenities including supermarkets, small shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. There is a lovely walk direct from the cottage on a country footpath that leads to Tulloch Castle which has a restaurant. A further 10-minute walk takes you to the centre of Dingwall. Just 20 minutes’ drive away lies the Highland capital of Inverness. Here there is a superb variety of restaurants, bars, shops and cafés, as well as museums, art galleries, a theatre and cinemas. Flowing through the centre is the River Ness, with riverside walks and parks to meander and explore.

A drive along the old A9 route will take you through to the charming village of Beauly with its historic priory and unusual craft shops. The road finishes at the famous Caledonian Canal on the edge of Inverness. The nearby Black Isle is well worth a visit with its charming fishing villages and unspoilt beaches, the nearest of which is 15 miles away. Boat trips run from here to view the resident bottle-nosed dolphins which frequent these waters. Rose Cottage is ideally located for exploring all the Highlands has to offer and provides a wonderful base to return to. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

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.
