Located on the stunning shoreline between Beauly Firth and Moray Firth, this former watchtower and coastguard station has been imaginatively converted into a quirky, fresh and bright holiday getaway.

Set in a beautiful spot in South Kessock, this fantastic property is just a couple of miles from the bustling city of Inverness which can be reached by car, bus or on foot. Inverness is home to a historic castle and beautiful Botanic Gardens, and has a great range of independent shops, restaurants and pubs to sample. Venues in the city include Eden Court Theatre, the Ironworks, and a cinema, with a range of festivals taking place throughout the year. Exploring the area further, you can visit the famous Loch Ness (10 miles), Culloden Battlefield (8 miles) and Clava Cairns (9 miles). For a day by the seaside, head to the popular Victorian resort of Nairn (17 miles).


Entering this attractively updated property, you will find the spacious and welcoming lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge is an ideal space for relaxing in, and the charming dining area is perfect for sharing a family meal. The kitchen is fully equipped with a hob and oven, dishwasher, coffee and espresso machine, fridge/freezer, microwave and washer/dryer. There is also a comfortable double bedroom on the ground floor as well as a bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC. Going upstairs, you will find a cosy double bedroom on the first floor. The second floor features an additional lounge area with spectacular views and a sofa bed for two additional guests.


Heading outside, you will find the large enclosed garden has been specially designed to allow you to drink in the extraordinary sea views. On occasion, dolphins can be glimpsed leaping out of the water across the firth, and seals frequently bathe just 150 metres or so from the fence. The garden is also an ideal spot to sit back and enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine on the evening. Parking is available for one car on the driveway, and for three cars in the garage.


Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
