The spacious formal lounge with its huge bay window is located on the north side of the property with views extending across the harbour to the Moray Firth and a traditional working fireplace adds that touch of grandeur. A further reception room or bedroom five also has views and a fireplace.

On the first floor, there is the master bedroom with a newly fitted en-suite shower room and there are an additional three double bedrooms on this floor.

The rear private gated courtyard is bordered by a large stone wall with decorative stone chips and paved areas. Sporadic planting of mature shrubs and seasonal flowers with a decorative small pond, multiple seating areas and a summer house ensure that you can enjoy this garden throughout the day and is perfect for some alfresco dining and entertaining. A safe and secure area for children and pets alike.
