Description

Paterson Cottage is a detached stone cottage that has been painstakingly restored stone by stone and now combines the very best of modern living with olde worlde charm. Situated in open countryside on the owner’s own farmland, just 15 minutes’ drive to Inverness it is ideally located for a luxurious Highland holiday in a unspoilt setting. The main living area is open plan. This truly delightful room has exposed stone walls, solid wood flooring and a welcoming wood-burning stove at the far end. The high vaulted ceilings proffer an air of space and light and the deep silled cottage windows look out across the private gardens to open fields beyond. The kitchen is bright and modern, with integral units. There are two beautifully presented and colour co-ordinated bedrooms (one en suite) and a family sized bathroom. Patio doors open onto the private patio area with lawns beyond. If you have a few hours spare why not learn how to make delicious bread and pizza during your stay? Courses can be booked, at cost, by direct arrangement with the owner.

About the local area

Situated on the Black Isle, on a peninsular noted for its wildlife, attractive fishing villages and unspoilt countryside just north of Inverness, the cottage is ideally located for exploring the whole of the Highland region. There is plenty to see and do in the immediate area. Situated on the Highland cycle route it is ideal for cyclists as well as walkers. There are miles of woodland paths and trails just a short stroll from the cottage. Golf, mountain biking, horse riding, sailing, canoeing, hill-walking and mountain climbing are all local pastimes. A visit to the nearby whisky distillery at Muir of Ord is always popular and for wildlife enthusiasts, a trip to see the resident famous bottle nosed dolphins of the Moray Firth is a must. Chanonry Point is a well-known local vantage point from which to spot these local ‘residents’ that frequent these waters. Boat trips to view the dolphins, seals and vast array of seabirds closer to hand are also available nearby. The pretty coastal towns and fishing villages dotted around the Black Isle are truly charming. The historic town of Cromarty is particularly attractive with its winding streets, fascinating court house museum and lovely walks along the water’s edge. It also boasts an excellent selection of restaurants, pubs, cafes and unusual small shops. Paterson Cottage is only 15 minutes’ drive from Inverness, the Highland capital city. Situated on the banks of the Ness this attractive and vibrant city has an excellent selection of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as a superb multi-million pound theatre complex, multi-screen cinema, ice-rink and an amazing wild-water aqua-dome. From this pivotal location visitors are spoilt for choice. Head west along the shores of Loch Ness to Fort William, Mallaig and the road to the Isles. To the north is the wild and dramatic scenery of Sutherland and Caithness, and to the south, Aviemore and the Cairngorm National Park.
