Aspen Cottage is in the hamlet of Kinellan, a small settlement of houses fringing Loch Kinellan on the outskirts of Strathpeffer. The property is in a delightful setting, sheltered by mature woodland and with beautiful framed views over the surrounding countryside.Strathpeffer expanded with the arrival of the railway in Victorian times when visitors came to take the famous spa waters. Today the village is popular for its handsome architecture, sense of community and as a base from which to enjoy the area with its easy access to Inverness and the west and east coasts.The village has a small supermarket, highly regarded primary school, restaurant, hotels and a modern doctors’ surgery. The market town of Dingwall is just a ten minute drive away and has a wider range of shops and amenities including an excellent secondary school while Inverness, about 20 miles away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.Aspen Cottage is in a sheltered setting with direct access to Loch Kinellan and way-marked walks and cycle trails, and yet is within easy walking distance of the village centre, primary school and golf course.The house was joiner-built to a high specification in 2010 and has well-laid out accommodation, filled with natural light. The focal point of the house is the open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen with cathedral ceiling, while extensive use of glass, double glazing, excellent insulation and a wood burning stove keep running costs to a minimum and French windows in the sitting room and ground floor bedroom extend the sense of space into the garden.
