Kessock House sits on an elevated position above the charming coastal village of North Kessock on the Black Isle just to the north of Inverness. The property has a secluded setting with stunning southerly views over the Beauly Firth.

The Black Isle lies between the Moray Firth to the south and the Cromarty Firth to the north, its fertile rolling countryside culminating in a beautiful coastline of raised beaches and prominent headlands, dotted with historic villages. The unspoilt countryside offers many opportunities for rural sports and recreation whilst also being the home to many rare species of native wildlife. The west coast, famous for its stunning coastline and sandy beaches, is an hour’s drive away while the Cairngorm National Park with many varied outdoor activities is a short drive southwards. There are several championship golf courses within easy reach.

The village, which nestles along the shores of the Beauly Firth has good amenities including a primary school, popular hotel, local shop, tea-room and doctor and dentist surgeries. Inverness, on the south side of the firth, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.

The original Victorian house was built around the mid 1800’s and at the start of the 20th Century a substantial extension was added which introduced the Arts and Crafts elements of the property. This architectural movement was a reaction to the Victorian manufactured and ornate styles and introduced warm and welcoming interiors with exquisite handcrafted finishes which can be seen throughout Kessock House in the beautifully proportioned rooms, panelling, carvings and fireplaces. The house underwent a major refurbishment in 1990 to create an outstanding traditional family home. This work included restoration of the period features, the introduction of modern facilities and redesigning the original kitchen and back areas to form a beautiful spacious handcrafted kitchen. A more recent addition is the stunning sunroom with underfloor heating and a central music system wired to all the reception rooms.
