Moonshine Cottage is a delightful lodge situated in its own generous garden and grounds with stunning views over open farmland to the mountains beyond. Just a mile from the charming Black Isle village of Culbokie, it offers peace and seclusion yet within close proximity of good facilities. The main living area is open plan, and this stunning room, with its high vaulted ceiling, is superbly presented. The cathedral-style floor-to-ceiling windows drink in the amazing views and ensure it is light and bright. The furniture and furnishings have been chosen with every consideration to quality and detail. The large fully fitted kitchen is exceptionally well equipped and there is a separate utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. There is both a bathroom and shower room on the ground floor, which have been decorated with a ‘beach hut’ theme, and are both unusual and charming. Stairs lead up from the main room to the mezzanine landing. A wonderful chandelier light hangs from the ceiling and highlights the magnificent views. There are two beautifully presented bedrooms, both with en suite toilet and wash basin. The double bedroom has a feature carved oak antique bedstead with sumptuously deep high quality mattress. The twin room is prettily decorated with lovely colour co-ordinated soft furnishings and looks out across the grounds.
The gardens consist of preservation woodland and grassed areas as well as shingle with outdoor seating; a wonderful spot in which to sit and admire the changing scenery. The owners’ house is situated on the adjoining land, where ducks roam. The village provides good local amenities, including a shop, bar and restaurant. This historic area, thought to have got its name from the dark rich soil of the area, is actually a peninsula. Bounded on three sides by the sea and surrounded by unspoilt countryside, it is a haven for wildlife. Rare birds, deer, seals and otters are regularly spotted. The most famous residents of the area are the bottlenose dolphins that are frequently seen in the surrounding waters. There are numerous places of interest close by and Inverness is just 14 miles away.
