Description - Peace and tranquillity are the unique characteristics of this desirable detached bungalow. Set in approximately 1/2 an acre,
this lovely family home enjoys an enviable situation as it is surrounded by protected woodland and croft land to the front. The inglenook style open fireplace within the triple aspect lounge/dining room provides a pleasing focal point whilst the kitchen is nicely fitted with oak wall and base units. All three bedrooms are well proportioned and the family bathroom has been refurbished with a white suite. Benefiting from an energy saving and environmentally friendly electric heating (through radiators) this property appreciates double glazing and good cupboard provision throughout. The garden grounds are laid to grass with an array of bordering mature trees and the driveway leading to the detached garage caters for ample parking. This property would make an ideal purchase for someone seeking the good life/country retreat yet within easy reach to local amenities and facilities. Viewing recommended.

Location - Set on the outskirts of Ardgay, a small scenic village some 36 miles north of Inverness and approximately 14 miles south west of Dornoch on the east coast of the Highlands. Ardgay has its own primary school and secondary school pupils have a choice of attending either Tain Royal Academy or Dornoch Academy. The village caters for all your daily needs with local shop and post office, hotel, garage, church and village hall. Further facilities are available at Tain (approx. 14 miles away). For the more active, Ardgay is an excellent base for walking, stalking and fishing and is golfing available at nearby Bonar Bridge (9 hole) and championship golf course at Dornoch.
