Urquhart Mill is an exceptionally spacious single storey detached house situated in an elevated position overlooking the Cromarty Firth. The large kitchen/dining room is well equipped; its large windows look out across the waters of the Cromarty Firth with the spectacular mountain range of Ben Wyvis acting as a dramatic backdrop. The spacious lounge has deep leather sofas enjoys the same stunning views. There is a second lounge with TV/DVD, and four generously proportioned bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities. They are all beautifully presented with colour co-ordinated soft furnishings and a bright, modern ambience. With a family sized bathroom and a second shower room it is ideal for families, two couples or extended family holidays. Urquhart Mill was built by the current owners on their working farm which has been in the same family for over a hundred years. Built on the site of an old historic mill, from which it takes its name, it offers peace and seclusion, yet is just 15 minutes’ drive to Inverness and 6 miles from the attractive market town of Dingwall, which provides an excellent range of facilities, including bars, restaurants and a large supermarket.
The immediate area is a bird watcher’s delight. Rare red kite wheel overhead and buzzards, swallows and house martins are all regularly seen. Backing onto open woodland, the occasional Roe Deer can be seen in the early morning and evening. The house is set in large country gardens, with mature trees and shrubs and plenty of lawned area for children to run around and explore. The outdoor dining table and chairs provide a welcoming spot to sit and admire the superb views across the water to the hills beyond. The Cromarty Firth is also noted for its resident bottle nosed dolphins that are frequently spotted along this shoreline. Situated on the Black Isle, a peninsular noted for its attractive fishing villages and unspoilt countryside just north of Inverness, the house is ideally located for exploring the whole of the Highland region. There is plenty to see and do in the immediate area. Golf, mountain biking, horse riding, sailing, canoeing, hill walking and mountain climbing are all local pastimes. 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. Urquhart Mill 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 Avimore and the Cairngorm National Park
