Description

Tucked away, this former gamekeeper’s lodge is a good base for enjoying outdoor activities or touring the Moray coast.

Enjoying wonderful panoramic views over surrounding farmland and on towards the waters of the inner Moray Firth, this interesting detached holiday property (adjacent to another holiday property) has been equipped and furnished to a very good standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible. The house dates from the 1860s and was originally a gamekeeper’s lodge to the Rosehaugh Estate and architectural features include whitewashed walls with exposed sandstone surrounds and crow-stepped gables, typical of Scots Baronial style. Tourie Lum, which means ‘towering chimney’ in Old Scots, is accessed by a single track and is located on the edge of the Black Isle fishing village of Avoch, overlooking the site of the historic Ormond Castle which is believed to have been a stronghold of William the Lion, King of the Scots from 1165 to 1214. The Black Isle makes a perfect base for exploring the many delights of the Northern Highlands. Visit the lovely villages along the Moray Coast or take a distillery tour along the Moray Whisky Trail. Inverness, the Highland capital, Loch Ness and Culloden Battlefield are just a short drive with the stunning west coast being an easy day out. The many activities available in the area include golf, mountain biking, water sports and boat trips, fishing, quad biking, walking and climbing to name just a few. For the less energetic, sit back, relax and watch the ever-changing scenery. Shop and pub 11/2 mile.

Living room with wood-burning stove and wooden floor. Spacious dining conservatory with wooden floor. Well-equipped kitchen with breakfast area and wooden floor. Double bedroom with 5ft bed. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with 5ft bed. Twin bedroom.

    On arrival the cottage was not ready . Laundry was drying in the conservatory and several mouse traps were set around the property. I also found evidence of vermin namely mouse droppings under the cusions of the wicker couch in the conservatory The house manager informed us that she had not been told of our booking!! I would like your comments on this!!

    The cottage is one of the best i have ever stayed in, the views are to die for and the location is perfect to explore plus get away from it all.

    A great cottage for a quiet week or touring the Highlands. Thoroughly enjoyed our week even if I want to blame the cottage for the starter motor failing on the car. Can also recommend the garage in Fortrose who fitted a new one within 24 hours. The beds are superb, the dining conservatory has the most beautiful views of the Moray Firth; you can actually watch the rain sweeping towards the house!
