This pretty cottage is set on a beautiful highland estate with a plethora of walks from the doorstep. The far-reaching views include the meandering River Conon which offers walking paths and picnic spots through a wooded dell - beautiful in all seasons but it is ablaze with colour in the spring with rhododendrons and azaleas and mighty specimen trees as a backdrop. The cottage is in an idyllic setting!
Outdoor activities abound on the estate itself, with free fishing for brown trout available on the River Conon and pike on Loch Ussie. Clay pigeon, walked up shooting and duck flights are all available here too. A red kite feeding station sits on the higher ground of the Brahan estate and visitors can view these aerobatic birds swooping in to feed.
The area is rich in golf courses from the notoriously hilly Strathpeffer just along the road, to the many links courses on the Black Isle and beyond. There are seven golf courses within 30 minutes of the Brahan Estate alone and one right on the doorstep!
There is much to do in the area too. The Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer (6 miles away) offers tea rooms, dining and interesting village architecture along with the The Pump Room gift shop. Ullapool and the west coast is within an hour's drive so easily visited for a day trip. The cathedral town of Dornoch with lovely beaches, a famous golf course, nearby Dunrobin Castle and several distilleries make for a good day out. The bonnie Black Isle with characterful coastal villages to explore is only a 30 minute drive. The city of Inverness offers leisure activities, a riverside theatre and boat trips on Loch Ness and around the Moray Firth where you can view the bottle nosed dolphins. The castles of Cawdor, Brodie, Urquhart and Culloden battlefield are all steeped in historical interest and well worth a visit.
