Arnaval is a large, modern, detached house situated in the quiet hamlet of Davidston, amidst open fields, in the county of Ross-shire. This beautifully presented family home is ideally located for exploring the historic Black Isle peninsula and Highland region. Named after a Hebridean mountain, Arnaval is just 2½ miles from Cromarty, renowned for being the best preserved historic town in the Highlands. There is a large kitchen/dining room with patio doors leading out to the lawned gardens that surround the property. It is very well-equipped, with built-in units and integral appliances. The main living room has large picture windows overlooking the gardens, with open fields beyond. It is tastefully furnished throughout, with solid wood flooring contributing to its sense of character. There is a sitting room, ideal for larger families and groups to spread out. A staircase from the living room leads up to the first floor where you will find two spacious double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, as well as a twin bedroom and single bedroom. The family-sized bathroom makes Arnaval ideal for families holidaying together and groups of friends. The integral garage acts as a games room, with a pool table and storage available for bikes and outdoor gear.
The surrounding area is noted for its wildlife. The nearby Udale RSPB Nature Reserve is well-known by bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts, with many interesting and unusual species spotted throughout the season. And of course the famous resident bottle-nosed dolphins are regularly seen along the coastline of the Cromarty Firth. The hamlet of Davidston is home to the Cromarty Brewery, one of the best craft breweries in the north of Scotland, and well worth a stroll along the lane to visit. For the energetic, there are superb purpose-built mountain bike trails just a few minutes’ drive away at Learnie Red Rock, where all abilities are catered for, and offering wonderful views from the top. The charming town of Cromarty, poised on the top of the Black Isle, is 5 minutes away. Here there are a number of historic places of interest including the old courthouse and museum. Small winding cobbled streets add to its charm and ambience. There is a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants here, as well as a thriving harbour, with boat trips to view the dolphins and other sea life closer to hand. The Black Isle has superb sandy beaches dotted along the coastline, interspersed by pretty, unspoilt fishing villages. It is also easily accessible to Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, just 30 minutes away. Loch Ness, Culloden battlefield and Fort George are just a few of the many interesting places to visit. Fishing, golf, sailing, kayaking, hillwalking and wildlife watching are all local pastimes. Beach 5¼ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.
