The Old Store is a renovated and characterful B listed property in a spectacular setting at
Ferryton Point, a peninsula on the shores of the Cromarty Firth. Close to the coastal village of
Balblair near Cromarty on the Black Isle, the property is in a beautiful and private setting, with
a private beach and stunning views to the Cromarty Firth and Ben Wyvis.

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 Black Isle is a gateway to the north Highlands and
from here there is easy access to the beautiful countryside with its dramatic scenery and many
recreational and sporting opportunities. This area has a number of way-marked cycle trails and
walks, while the coastal villages offer sheltered harbours.

The nearby village of Culbokie has a shop and post office while Cromarty has useful local
shops, primary schools and a number of restaurants. Resolis primary school is only a mile away
and secondary schooling is available at the highly acclaimed Fortrose Academy. Inverness,
about half-an-hour’s drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with
regular flights to the south.

Steeped in history, The Old Store is one of the most significant buildings in the area. With
records dating back to circa 1650, the property was used as a store for rents paid in kind
which were shipped out from the beach. The property was sensitively renovated in 1989 and
whilst it retains some original features, The Old Store is now a delightful family home. The
property was renovated using the natural stone where possible and a Norwegian Pine frame
with Welsh slate tiled roof, providing flexible 2 storey accommodation with well-proportioned
rooms. The bedrooms are on the ground floor, accessed via the generous reception hall. The
recently installed shower room and the utility room are off the conservatory which has Iroko
beams, exposed red sandstone wall and beautiful views across the garden to the neighbouring
farmland. The first floor has an open plan living space with a dining kitchen and generous
sitting room complete with dual aspect views, exposed pine beams and a wood burning stove
with Aberdeenshire brick surround. There is a snug off the sitting room and access to the first
floor of the studio.
