Easter Craiglands lies close to Fortrose on the Black Isle. The property is in a beautiful, private
setting with framed views to the Moray Firth.

Fortrose, a historic coastal town on the Black Isle lying just north of Inverness, grew up around
its cathedral and this is reflected in its fine architecture and layout. Many families relocate here,
attracted by its strong community, excellent secondary school and beautiful coastal setting. The
town has a number of independent shops, hotels and restaurants as well as its yacht club, harbour
and golf club. 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.

Easter Craiglands is a charming farm cottage and steading conversion with a modern interior
retaining many original features. The current owners bought the property in 2008 and since then
have carried out considerable work to the house and grounds to create a lovely rural property with
equestrian facilities. The improvements include incorporating the cottage into the main house
and creating a contemporary dining kitchen, upgrading the insulation, installing a wood pellet
boiler and solar panels, creating a covered courtyard, installation of a wood burning stove, and
redecoration.

The open plan kitchen/dining room are the focal point of the house and designed for modern-day
family living. The double height ceiling with Velux windows fills the room with natural light and
french doors to the sheltered flagstone terrace extend the sense of space into the garden, while a
wide open arch leads to the comfortable sitting room with its wood burning stove.
There are bedrooms on both the ground and first floors, one currently used as a study, and the
former cottage which is now fully incorporated into the main house, has a winter sitting room also with wood burning stove and three bedrooms. The cottage front door is still in place and the potential exists to offer this wing of the house as self-contained letting accommodation.

The courtyard, which is enclosed on three sides, is partly covered creating further entertaining and
storage space. From here there is access to the boiler room/utility room housing the wood pellet
boiler and with an extensive floored attic space above.
