Location: 

In a superb location in a remote highland glen - the setting for television's A Glen for All Seasons - this old Church of Scotland Manse stands in ¼acre of secluded gardens, with wonderful views over the valley and surrounding mountains.

Completely refurbished and decorated with style, it is perfect for nature lovers and walkers. There is excellent bird-watching, deer stalking, fly fishing, mountaineering and hill walking locally. Pub 2½miles. Inverness, the hub of the Highlands is just a 45-minute drive away, and offers good shopping in a town cradled by a prosperous history based on the export of leather, timber and salmon.

Built on the banks of the River Ness, it boasts a red sandstone castle and there are several other attractions to be found within the town. Apart from the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, Balnain House traces the development of Highland music, whilst The Kiltmaker Center is a factory outlet with a small visitor center. Upriver from the cathedral, the River Ness runs close to the Caledonian Canal, designed by Telford in the 19th century as a link between the east and west coasts of Scotland and joining the lochs Ness, Lochy and Linnhe. Nowadays the canal serves as a good departure point for cruises to Loch Ness.

Ten miles west of Inverness, the village of Beauly with its stone-built houses lies at the point where the Beauly River (one of Scotland's most renowned for salmon fishing) flows into the Firth. At nearby Moniack Castle, various home made wines can be sampled, whilst the village of Muir of Ord is home to the Glen of Ord whisky distillery which offers tours and tastings of its famous malts. Also within easy reach is Strathpfeffer, once renowned as a health resort, where visitors flocked during Victorian times to sample its beneficial waters. The main attraction today being the family-orientated Highland Museum of Childhood, and its handiness as a base for walkers heading towards Ben Wyvis.
