This semi-detached bungalow sits within its own spacious, fully enclosed garden. Upon entering the accommodation there is a spacious hallway with the master bedroom to your right with sea view and the twin room at the rear of the house. The family bathroom has a large raindrop head in the walk-in shower. The living/dining room is a great size and perfect for the family to spend their time in, with a large TV and a sea view. Through the living/dining room is the kitchen which has been finished to a high standard and a dream for those who like to cook. From the kitchen there is a door which leads out into a large patio area with garden furniture, perfectly sheltered to sit out and enjoy the long summer evenings.
Bear Cottage itself is perfectly located right in the heart of Balintore, the central village of the Seaboard Villages. The beach and brilliant coastal walks are right on the doorstep, making the property ideal for those with energetic dogs. Balintore’s harbour was built circa 1890 and the village has a shop, café, inn, post office and pharmacy. It’s a small and friendly community that has made its living for centuries from fishing. Before the harbour the practice of pulling fishing boats up on the beach was common.
Sitting on the shoreline at Balintore is the ’Mermaid of the North’, a 11ft high bronze casted mermaid. At the adjacent Seaboard Centre you can collect the Mermaid stamp for the North Coast 500 passport. Locally there is evidence of an ancient settlement. Fearn Abbey just inland from Balintore was founded in 1238 and just outside the Seaboard Villages is the Shandwick Stone, a 9ft tall Pictish cross slab dating back to 780AD and thought to be standing in its original position. It is thought to have been a navigation tool for fishermen over the centuries.
Balintore is really very well located for a holiday, just off the North Coast 500 Route, making it perfect to go exploring the Scottish Highlands. Tain is only 10 minutes’ drive away and Inverness only 30 minutes’ away. Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
