Mid-Lodge is a characterful cottage dating back to the mid-19th century. It is picture perfect and has a wonderful location on an old country lane within a copse of mature trees. It also has a fabulous view across barley fields to Beaufort Castle. Upon entering the hallway, straight ahead is the staircase to the first floo, a bedroom is to the right and the spacious, comfortable living room is to the left. The living room enjoys a large log burner taking centre stage, and a good size Smart TV. It is open plan with the kitchen, which is small but sufficient for cooking hearty Highland meals for six people. The spacious master double bedroom is downstairs, and finished to a good standard.
This cottage is so fantastic you will hardly want to leave, but when you inevitably do there are walks all around the estate to enjoy. A little further afield is the popular village of Beauly, which has a good array of shops, cafés and restaurants to fuel your adventures in the local area. The cosmopolitan city of Inverness is only half an hour’s drive with its castle and St Andrew’s Cathedral. Just a little further east you can explore Culloden, Cawdor and Nairn, or even the Cairngorms National Park which is only a 45-minute drive south. The Moray Firth has a resident pod of bottle nose dolphins which you will have a great chance of seeing from the shore. Walking the beaches along the Moray Firth is a great way to see this part of Scotland and the local wildlife. The North Coast 500 is nearby, so you can follow this scenic route up the east coast to see gems such as the River Helmsdale and Duncansby Head. Or you can easily head west and reach Loch Ness within 20 minutes and continue towards the west coast and the magical Isle of Skye. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
