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.

    Great cottage. Steep access road but the views were worth it. Bed a little hard for me but husband said he was ok. Huge bath and underfloor heating in bathroom was great. Massive conservatory.

    The house is delightful - comfortable, well equipped and enjoying stunning views. It is in ideal location to explore much of Northern Scotland. We would happily visit again.

    We had a brilliant week at Tourie Lum. The cottage was excellent, furnished to a high standard with all the accessories you could wish for plus the views from the cottage are beautiful. We saw plenty of dolphins at Chanonary Point only 10 minutes away and the cottage is in a good location for day trips to the highlands.
