Altonburn Cottage lies in a delightful, secluded setting on the edge of Nairn Championship golf course on the Moray coast. Lying at the end of a quiet lane on the western fringes of Nairn, the cottage was originally used as a sanatorium for a boys’ school before becoming the headmaster’s accommodation. The cottage has been in the same family since 1979 and in 2001 the current owners sympathetically extended and fully renovated the cottage to create a delightful home, where traditional and modern building methods have been combined to ensure the property has retained its historic features and charm whilst taking full advantage of modern techniques and technologies. The work carried out includes the addition of two timber clad wings which compliment the original 19th Century cottage, one housing the beautifully appointed Poggenpohl kitchen and ancillary rooms, the other a garden room and en suite bedroom both with delightful views over the garden. These rooms are separated by a sliding wall which offers the option to create one room, ideal for entertaining. Additional work includes re-roofing, re-harling, double glazing, the installation of a wood burning stove and complete redecoration.

The cottage is in a peaceful setting, with mature Scots pine woodland to one side and just a short walk from the 17th hole on Nairn Championship golf course. Nairn town centre and its beautiful sandy beach are close by and the airport and Inverness are both within easy reach.
