Torbuie is situated amidst open farmland and Highland hillside yet is just 2 miles from the charming village of Rogart. This spacious detached cottage was originally an old stone croft cottage. It has been extended and refurbished over the years and now provides plenty of accommodation for up to 7 guests. It is accessed via a short, rough track that leads into the garden grounds.

The large farmhouse kitchen and delightful living room with windows on three sides, drink in the views and surrounding scenery. The original wooden floor and large wood burner add to the ambience. On the ground floor there are two spacious bedrooms at either end of this sprawling cottage. One has a super kingsize bed with an en-suite shower room while the second has a double bed with a separate shower room adjoining. Upstairs, there is a family bathroom and a further bedroom with a double and single bed, ideal for families. A separate stone barn has been converted to a games room, with a full size table tennis table and deep leather sofas set around a feature wood burner. The owner is a musician and has left a set of drums for visitor’s to use. Country gardens surround the property, which is fully fenced.

Although rural, the property lies just 2 miles from the charming village of Rogart and just off the renowned North Coast 500 route. Rogart has a good pub and restaurant as well as a local shop and post office. There are stunning walks direct from the property, including a lovely walk to a nearby loch. Deer, pine marten, red kites and golden eagles can all spotted here, as well as seals, otters and dolphins along the shoreline. For cyclists, the lane from the cottage provides a wonderful and quiet scenic route all the way through to Brora. Here there is a superb sandy beach and a colony of resident seals in the bay. Visit the nearby castle of Dunrobin, historic seat of the Dukes of Sutherland, or for those who prefer an active holiday, there are mountain biking trails, golf, fishing and various watersports nearby. The picturesque seaside town of Dornoch, with its sandy beach and championship golf course, is just 15 minutes’ drive away. Beach 12 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

Discover a wonderful variety of contrasting landscapes that will make a lasting impression, from the remote rock-hewn wilderness of far north west Sutherland to the green rolling coastal lands by the Cromarty Firth. Wherever you travel you're surrounded by some of the most outstanding remote natural beauty in Scotland.

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy `The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

Summer visitors to the Highlands (mostly July and August) may not want to miss the annual Highland Games, which are held across the Highlands and are a unique spectacle of athletic, dancing and piping events which should not be missed!
