An architect-created apartment in the midst of the Highlands, this family cottage brings country delight and modern elegance together for a unique holiday.

Set in 1/2 acre of stunning grounds, surrounded by fields, and with the heights of the heather-strewn Highlands beyond, this property will inspire you to explore. The area is famous for fishing and walking and most other outdoor pursuits you can imagine. Make your way around Cromerty Firth or head for a jaunt to Inverness, 27 miles away. Explore the shops or journey east to the beautiful Cowdor Castle, the 14th-century fort that may have inspired Macbeth. 

Enter into the cottage to see the intentional design at work. The living space curls around, bringing the light from the great outdoors through the sitting area, dining space, and kitchen. Snuggle up beside the TV with a view, or rustle up a family feast and enjoy a planning session at the sweet table. Natural colours and wood details connect the whole space and lead into the peaceful double bedroom downstairs, with French doors heading out to the patio, so you can wake up and enjoy the fresh highland air straight away. Nextdoor, a modern shower in the family bathroom provides the perfect wake up. The twin bedroom is upstairs and access is via stairs in the lounge.  

Outside, the cottage's patio wraps around the property, with a large private enclosed garden ground for your pooches to run freely. it's a beautiful place to take an al fresco supper or your morning coffee and dream about the day to come.

We had a great week staying at Tollie cottage. It has everything you need and lots of nice extra touches. The garden is huge, and our 2 collies loved chasing around it. There is also now tv which has sky tv channels on it. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend Tollie cottage as a base to explore the highlands.

New owners of Tollie cottage, Paul and co couldn't have made us feel anymore welcome. Attention to detail within the property was second to none, from the excellent welcome basket to even spare toothbrushes in the bathroom. The property came fully kitted out and we were left needing nothing. The peaceful location 5 miles from Alness was the perfectRead more setting for a relaxing break away. Cosy interior, with refined features such as a wood burner and induction hob. A real home from home. Hide

This is a wonderful cottage in a beautiful location. Felicity was very helpful and welcoming. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

This was our second visit to this property. It was again a very pleasant experience. The cottage is well-equipped and situated in a beautiful location. The hosts could not be more helpful. A good kitchen is essential for staying self -catering, and Tollie cottage has such a kitchen. If you like fly fishing, as we do, then you are ideally placed forRead more fishing the river Alness, some local lochs, or as we did, going up to Dornoch to fish some excellent hill lochs up there. Thoroughly recommend this property ! Hide
