The Shore is a charming semi-detached cottage overlooking the harbour in the conservation area of Fortrose, a historic coastal town on the Black Isle lying just north of Inverness. Fortrose grew up around its cathedral and this is reflected in its fine architecture and layout. Today it is a thriving town popular for its beautiful coastal location, unspoilt centre and easy access to Inverness. Many families relocate here, attracted by its strong community and excellent secondary school. The town has a number of independent shops, hotels and restaurants as well as its yacht club, harbour and golf club on Chanonry Ness, a spit of land extending in to the Moray Firth and from where the Moray Firth bottle nose dolphins can most often be seen. Inverness, about a twenty minute drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.
The countryside of the Scottish Highlands is varied, from the fertile, rolling farmland of the coast to the inland moorlands and rugged mountains. This unspoilt landscape provides a haven for many rare and protected species of wildlife, as well as a wide range of rural leisure and sporting opportunities from way marked walks and cycle trails on the Black Isle to skiing and adventure sports in the Cairngorms National Park.
The Shore was fully refurbished about 2 years ago to create beautifully appointed accommodation which retains all the charm and many of the features of the traditional cottage. The design and decoration of the interior reflect the coastal
setting, while the first floor viewing platform fills the house with natural light and takes advantage of the stunning views.
The work carried out includes a new kitchen, installing a wood burning stove in
the sitting room, upgrading the bathrooms, and complete redecoration.
The Shore was previously a successful holiday let.
