Rosemarkie is a charming, traditional, former fishing village and is popular for its attractive coastal location and easy access to Inverness. The village has a local shop, pub and popular café as well as a long sandy beach and the Fairy Glen, a walk through beautiful woodland to waterfalls. Nearby Fortrose has further amenities including its harbour, yacht club, highly-regarded secondary school and golf course, while 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 Black Isle has fertile rolling countryside with a beautiful coastline of raised beaches and prominent headlands. Further afield, the countryside of the Scottish Highlands is varied, from the 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 including skiing and adventure sports in the Cairngorms National Park. The Old Mill is a former meal mill, one of two mills in Rosemarkie that was owned by George Sutherland the Provost of Fortrose in the late 19th century which was later turned into a laundry, laundering the uniforms used by the army at Fort George which were brought across by ferry from Ardersier to Chanonry point. The Old Mill is not listed but does lie within the Rosemarkie conservation area and enjoys far reaching views over Rosemarkie beach, the Moray Firth to Fort George and the distant Moray coast. It has been under the ownership of the current resident and has been a family home since 1999 and although now requiring a degree of modernisation this sizeable property has comfortable and well-proportioned accommodation spread over two floors with loft space accessed via Ramsey ladder. The property has two internal staircases and the layout of the accommodation could lend to the property being sub-divided to form two dwellings subject to gaining the relevant permissions. All five bedrooms are located off the first floor landing, the principal bedroom with its en-suite shower room is also accessible by the way of a Stiltz through floor lift, rising from a room off the dining/kitchen. All the bedrooms and the three reception rooms enjoy sea views.
