More details and Booking Form


Stunningly renovated old schoolhouse within an acre of garden near Inverness, brimming with character and thoughtful touches.

This unique property is located on the edge of Muir of Ord, an enchanting Scottish village on the western boundary of the Black Isle. The building once served as a schoolhouse to the village, and less than half a mile from the door you'll find a local shop, bakery, fish and chip shop, restaurants and a golf club. Only 13 miles from the Highland capital, Inverness, everything you'll need is close by, be it peaceful walking country or busy city shops. A trip out on the water to look for Nessie is certainly on the cards, as Loch Ness is only 16 miles from your door.


Tastefully updated yet retaining its traditional charm, the interior is pretty and inviting. On the ground floor, an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is complete with oak flooring, high ceilings and stylish pendant lighting. The kitchen area is contemporary and well-equipped, contrasting beautifully with the antique dining table and chairs. Gather for meals here before sinking into the sofas for popcorn and a DVD, wood burner crackling beside you. The master king-size bedroom is well furnished with a wrought-iron bedstead and ornamental fireplace, and benefits from a contemporary en-suite shower room too. Also on the ground floor is the spacious family bathroom, cheerfully decorated with a quirky purple roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle. Venturing upstairs, you'll find another stunning bedroom, furnished in rich blues with a beautiful antique bed that is a small double.


Stepping outside, al fresco dining is a must on warm summer evenings as there's a delightful patio set up with garden furniture. Take your evening drinks out here while the sky turns pink, or have a wander around the acre of garden that the house sits on. There's an unfenced burn (a Scottish stream) that runs through the garden, so please ensure that children and dogs are supervised; rest assured that the garden is enclosed so there's no easy access to the nearby road.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
