Hideaway is a modernised former log cabin, with well-presented accommodation all on one level, including entrance hall, three bedrooms (one en-suite), kitchen, open plan sitting room/ dining room, and family bathroom.

The rooms have full height ceilings and this, along with the extensive use of glass, provides a sense of space and light, linking the interior to the stunning coastal landscape outside.

In addition the property has a double garage with two adjoining workshops / stores, a stone barn and 28 acres of land, with direct access to the sandy beach from the front gate.

Phiddy Robertson of Galbraith, who is handling the sale said: “This is a lovely home right on the beach, in one of Scotland’s most stunning coastal areas. The owners have made a number of improvements to the house, resulting in a comfortable and very attractive property, with easily maintained grounds and grazing land. The surrounding area  is utterly idyllic and it is a superb setting for a family, with primary schools in both Inver and Portmahomack.”

The grounds extend to approximately 28.1 acres, including the foreshore.  The garden is laid mainly to lawn with parts left unmown to encourage wildflowers and ground-nesting birds, while there are raised beds and sitting areas immediately around the house.  To one side of the drive is an enclosed fruit and vegetable garden with sheltered flagstone patio area. 

From the front lawn, a gate opens to the beach where ownership extends to the low water mark.   The grazing land, which extends to approximately six acres, is divided into a number of fenced paddocks, currently used for grazing sheep.

The village of Inver can be reached along the beach – it has a Primary School and a restaurant. The nearby village of Portmahomack has a post office, shop, fish restaurant, hotels and highly regarded golf course, while nearby Tain has an excellent range of shops and amenities including primary and secondary schooling.  Inverness, about an hour’s drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport.

There are beautiful coastal walks directly from the house and Portmahomack itself is within easy walking distance along the beach.  The unspoilt setting provides a haven for a wide range of wildlife with regular sightings of dolphins in the firth, migratory and ground nesting birds, while the owners manage the grounds at Hideaway to encourage diverse flora and fauna.
