Stunningly renovated old schoolhouse within an acre of garden near Inverness, brimming with character and thoughtful touches.

This unique property is located on the edge of Muir of Ord, an enchanting Scottish village on the western boundary of the Black Isle. The building once served as a schoolhouse to the village, and less than half a mile from the door you'll find a local shop, bakery, fish and chip shop, restaurants and a golf club. Only 13 miles from the Highland capital, Inverness, everything you'll need is close by, be it peaceful walking country or busy city shops. A trip out on the water to look for Nessie is certainly on the cards, as Loch Ness is only 16 miles from your door. 

Tastefully updated yet retaining its traditional charm, the interior is pretty and inviting. On the ground floor, an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is complete with oak flooring, high ceilings and stylish pendant lighting. The kitchen area is contemporary and well-equipped, contrasting beautifully with the antique dining table and chairs. Gather for meals here before sinking into the sofas for popcorn and a DVD, wood burner crackling beside you. The master king-size bedroom is well furnished with a wrought-iron bedstead and ornamental fireplace, and benefits from a contemporary en-suite shower room too. Also on the ground floor is the spacious family bathroom, cheerfully decorated with a quirky purple roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle. Venturing upstairs, you'll find another stunning bedroom, furnished in rich blues with a beautiful antique bed that is a small double.

 Stepping outside, al fresco dining is a must on warm summer evenings as there's a delightful patio set up with garden furniture. Take your evening drinks out here while the sky turns pink, or have a wander around the acre of garden that the house sits on. There's an unfenced burn (a Scottish stream) that runs through the garden, so please ensure that children and dogs are supervised; rest assured that the garden is enclosed so there's no easy access to the nearby road.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Evelix is a characterful, luxury property with bags of original details and many sympathetic introductions to what was a former country schoolhouse onto a great 2 bed cottage. The garden was great for the dog to explore and we very much hope to be back

Evelix is a beautiful house in the beautiful Highlands. We were spoilt from the moment we walked in with a tasty cake ready and waiting. Evelix is picture perfect with the slipper bath, log burner and tasteful decor. It was so comfortable, with everything we could possibly need-home from home! Our dog particularly loved the grounds-especially the lRead moreittle stream that ran through the garden. There was so much to do from this base. We had a fabulous week in the Highlands and will be back again. Hide

We were delighted with Evelix. It was modern but with loads of character. Everything was clean and of high standard. The welcome food pack was much appreciated. The garden was huge, and very nice to relax with a glass of wine after a days exploring.

Spectacular house in a great location for access to the highlands. Brilliant grounds, secure for a dog and children with lawn and woodland. Comfortable, clean and beautiful with everything you need including binoculars - very handy for dolphin/seal spotting in the Firths. Evelix is stunning, unique and an absolute delight. You will not be disappoinRead moreted with this choice. Hide

We were looking for a self-catering cottage west of Inverness and this gem showed up in our search. Beautifully restored, very well equipped, very comfortable. It had everything we could have asked for. Great location because you can easily get to Inverness and the north and to Skye in a day trip.

Evelix is a beautiful property in a great location. The house is very nicely decorated with nice touches. Wished we could of stayed longer. The cake was delicious and it was lovely to have the essentials already waiting for our arrival. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.
