No 7 Duke Street is a B listed terraced house in the centre of Cromarty on the Black Isle, a peninsula which lies just to the north of Inverness between the Moray and Cromarty Firths.Cromarty is a former fishing village and is a charming mix of meandering lanes, fishermen’s cottage and substantial houses. There is a good range of independent shops, a small supermarket with post office, and primary school, as well as cafes, restaurants, a brand new Community Cinema and the harbour with its ferry to the north side of the firth. Secondary schooling is available at the highly-regarded Fortrose Academy and Inverness, about 40 minutes’ drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.The Black Isle has fertile rolling countryside with a beautiful coastline of raised beaches and prominent headlands. The area has a number of way-marked cycle trails and walks, while the coastal villages offer sheltered harbours and nearby Fortrose has a links golf course.No 7 Duke Street, which dates from 1815, was fully renovated and extended about twelve years ago and this work has created a delightful house where traditional details blend with modern building techniques and energy saving features such as solar panels and good levels of insulation. The garden room extension to the rear of the property extends the sense of space into the garden and the extensive use of glass provides solar gain as well as filling the house with natural light. Recent improvements include a new wood burning stove in the sitting room, the installation of an electric boiler and redecoration.
