150630 -BI -0052House-hunters desperate to escape the hustle and bustle city for life in a charming, cost-efficient rural property may find their dream home in Ardgay House.

Lying on the southern shore of the Dornoch Firth, the five-bedroom country house is situated in the tranquil village of Ardgay.

Despite the small size of the community, it has retained its rail connections, offering easy commuting to nearby Tain and Inverness.

Traditional Country Home 

The roomy traditional country home has preserved many of its original features, giving it bags of character. It also has its own enclosed and private garden and grounds.

It is ready to move into and would also make the ideal family home or guest house and is on the market with Inverness-based Estate Agents and Surveyors Bell Ingram, for a guide price of £350,000.

Joanne Stennett, of Bell Ingram in Inverness, said: “Ardgay House is a stunning property that would be the perfect purchase for city dwellers who are keen to swap the daily commotion for the calm of the country.

“It is a spacious home, with five bedrooms and large reception rooms, making it ideal as a family home or alternatively as a guest house, offering warmth and comfort.

“Despite its period and rural charm, it has also been modernised and upgraded to a very high standard while maintaining attractive original features.

“While Ardgay itself may be small, it is a thriving village with a great sense of community spirit and easy access to a wide range of local amenities – and that just adds to the whole attractive package.

“The rail and road links also mean this would make the perfect home for anyone working in nearby towns and cities but who would prefer a house that is as far away as imaginable from the hectic lifestyle.”


Outdoor and sports enthusiasts are also likely to love what Ardgay offers, as an excellent base for walking, stalking, fishing and golfing.

The property, which is in walk-in condition, is laid out over two floors and comprisesa dining room, sitting room, kitchen, office and WC on the ground floor, with five double bedrooms, a luxury bathroom and four en-suites on the first floor. Two of the upstairs bedrooms also offer scenic views out over the Kyle of Sutherland.

The private gardens feature lawns and flower beds screened by mature trees and bushes for privacy. There is also parking for several vehicles on the driveway and a modern double garage which offers superb storage.

Ardgay is 36 miles north of Inverness and approximately 14 miles south west of Dornoch, on the east coast of the Highlands. The village has its own primary school, as well as a local shop and garage, church and village hall.

Nearby Bonar Bridge, which is in easy walking distance, provides a number of shops, a post office, a hotel and a restaurant.150630 -BI -0119
