Situated in a quiet no-through road above the picturesque seaside village of Portmahomack, Aiffer is a bright, modern semi-detached cottage. The living room is attractively presented, with a leather suite and pretty furnishings. The kitchen/dining room has built-in units and plenty of space for dining. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, both are nicely presented with colour co-ordinated soft furnishings. There is a family sized shower room on this floor and a cloakroom on the ground floor. The gardens are laid to lawn with flowers and shrubs, and an added feature is a lovely summer house with sofa. The gardens are fully enclosed and are ideal for children and pets.
Aiffer is just a short walk from all the amenities this unspoilt fishing village has to offer. The sweeping sandy beach with rock pools and a promenade is ideal for picnics, walking or kayaking. The pretty harbour at the far end is still used by local craft. Portmahomack has a good selection of amenities, including a general store, pub, café and restaurants, all within easy walking distance. A traditional golf links course is just 200 yards away and is open to visitors.

The road adjoining the cottage goes out to the Tarbat Ness Lighthouse, the most north-easterly working lighthouse in the British Isles.
