    About this property

    Nestled in extensive grounds, this immaculate property offers a warm and welcoming environment in a secluded and tranquil location.
    Set amidst the natural splendour of Easter Ross, Balnagown Estate, the historic seat of the Clan Ross, has a rich blend of farmland, woodland and heather-clad hills, and is just a mere 45 minutes’ drive from Inverness. Steeped in history, the estate has been transformed into a breathtaking holiday retreat and offers a unique experience, as each property has been thoughtfully furnished and equipped with every need. This is a superb base for touring this beautiful and unspoilt part of Scotland with easy access to many areas and attractions. There is so much to see and do for all ages.
    The Farmhouse (ref UKC3271) is set in its own private gardens in the heart of this superb country estate. Built of local stone over three floors, its large rooms, with high ceilings and superb furnishings provide an air of luxurious ambience throughout. The main entrance leads through a flagstone hallway to a magnificent drawing room with feature open fireplace. There is a charming snug beyond, offering further public space. The spacious farmhouse kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped. Deep stone archways lead through to a large dining room beyond.
    Hill House (ref UKC2182) enjoys stunning views across the grounds to the fishing lochs, and the seascape of the renowned Cromarty Firth beyond. This traditional, detached stone built house is furnished to a high standard throughout. The spacious living room has a wood burner and double bay windows so you can take in the surrounding views.
    Swiss Cottage (UKC2184) is a delightful, detached, stone cottage, with a distinctive Alpine style. Its large windows and charming balcony add to the charm and ambience. The living space runs the length of the top floor and provides wonderful views across the manicured lawns and country landscape.
    Grieve’s Cottage (smmm) is a great choice for families or groups of friends. There are three comfortable bedrooms, one being on the ground floor making Grieve’s Cottage an ideal choice for the less mobile.
    Gardener’s Cottage (smmk) is a stunning cottage for 4 people and is a true jewel in the crown. With French doors opening on to the patio, this is a perfect cottage for luxury and relaxation.

For wildlife enthusiasts, the observation tower in the grounds offers a wonderful vantage point from which to observe the myriad of wildlife in the local area.
