Hideaway lies close to Portmahomack on the Tarbat peninsula. The property is in an outstanding setting, positioned just above the beach on the southern shores of the Dornoch Firth and with panoramic views across the water to Easter Ross and Sutherland.The Tarbat Peninsula is a promontory lying to the north of Inverness between the Dornoch and Cromarty Firths. The area is popular for its dry climate, wonderful coastal light and fertile farmland culminating in a coastline of sheer cliffs and sandy beaches dotted with historic fishing villages.This varied landscape offers many opportunities for a wide range of rural sports and recreation, from enjoying the sandy beaches to trout fishing on Loch Eye and golfing on one of the many links golf courses along the coast as far as Sutherland, including the world famous Royal Dornoch Championship Course. The village of Inver to the West of Hideaway can be reached along thebeach- it has a Primary School and a restaurant.

The unspoilt setting provides a haven for a wide range of wildlife with regular sightings of dolphins in the firth, migratory and ground nesting birds, while the owners manage the grounds at Hideaway to encourage diverse flora and fauna.The property, which was built in 1974, was purchased by the current owners in 2016 and they have carried out a number of improvements to create a delightful coastal house. This work includes insulation and larch cladding on the external walls, replacement of the roof tiles with box profile sheeting, upgrading the plumbing, general repairs and redecoration.
