Delny House is an important and distinctive period home located in an attractive part of the Scottish Highlands with a superb outlook towards the Cromarty Firth and only 25 miles north of Inverness. Surprisingly the property is not listed despite its interesting history and architecture. Parts of the original house date back to the 16th century and there have been substantial extensions during the Victorian era which include a castellated tower and crow step gables.

The accommodation is arranged over three levels and will suit a variety of buyers from those looking for an enchanting family home to those looking for a potential business opportunity. In the past the property was run as a successful Hotel and restaurant and has great potential to reopen subject to the appropriate consents.

The property has retained many of its original features which become evident on entering the broad, welcoming hallway via the quarry tiled entrance vestibule. Features include display alcoves, cupola, cornicing, raised skirting and fireplaces. Located on either side of the tower are the impressive, bay windowed public rooms oozing elegance and charm. The formal dining room has a wood burning stove and the sitting room comes with an Adam style fire surround with inset open fire. There is a fully equipped bar with shelving and storage, commercial kitchen with a comprehensive range of stainless steel commercial kitchen equipment and food preparation room. To the rear there is a double bedroom with en suite shower room and ladies and gent’s cloakroom facilities. The basement provides excellent storage facilities and includes the boiler room, linen room and utility room. A self-contained staff apartment to the rear provides a further bedroom, living room, shower room and kitchen.

On the first floor there are four en suite bedrooms and a host of other rooms within the tower. On the second floor there are additional attic bedrooms and office space. The Tower Room itself is a fantastic triple aspect room with superb views which leads to a breathtaking roof terrace.

Invergordon is a town with a tremendous history stretching back through two world wars and is now a centre for oil-rig & wind turbine refurbishment and maintenance. It is also a major port of call for cruise liners bringing in excess of 70,000 passengers to the area. For the outdoor enthusiast there are a host of outdoor activities on the doorstep including Invergordon Golf Club which overlooks the Cromarty Firth and has stunning views towards Fyrish Monument, Ben Wyvis and Wester Ross. A few miles out of town you will find Invergordon Sailing Club and one of the enthralling Pictish Stones which form the historic Pictish Trail.

Invergordon has several interesting walks which incorporate many colourful murals painted onto local buildings, depicting the history of the town. Longer scenic walks are possible along both the east shore towards Saltburn beach & woodland and westwards towards Linear Park with views of imposing oil rigs berthed in the Cromarty Firth, Donkey Bridge, Old Rosskeen Church cemetery and the Dalmore Distillery.

Inverness is very much the commercial and business centre for the Highlands of Scotland and is only 26 miles away and is convenient for the Airport which is located to the East of the city. The airport provides a variety of domestic and European flights. Inverness also has excellent public transport links with good bus and rail connections.

The main house is surrounded by grounds extending to approximately 2.5 acres which include a south facing walled garden. A further walled garden to the side of the property is accessed from the sitting room. There are various outbuildings which include a stone bothy, shed and wood store. There is ample parking space on the driveway for several vehicles.
