Fortrose is a historic, traditional former fishing village on the Black Isle, a peninsula just to the north of Inverness between the Moray and Cromarty Firths, with fertile rolling countryside, a beautiful coastline of raised beaches and prominent headlands including nearby Chanonry Point where dolphins can often be spotted from the shore. The area is popular for its beautiful coastal location and easy access to Inverness. With a central location, Oakfield is within walking distance of the local amenities which include a good range of local shops as well as a harbour, yacht club, a highly-regarded secondary school and a golf course, while at its heart are the remains of the magnificent Fortrose Cathedral. 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.Oakfield is a substantial, semi-detached villa that dates back to the 1850’s and which has been in the same ownership for approximately 26 years.
