Historical Note
A great deal of research has been done on the history of The Rectory and St Columba's Church. According to church records The Rectory (or Parsonage as it was originally called) was built in 1856. The research has provided a fascinating insight into its construction, the local area and the various occupants who resided at the property over the years. Additional information is available on request.

Description
The Rectory is a very distinctive traditional property which was built in 1856 and provides very flexible and spacious accommodation arranged over 3 levels. Such period, historic homes are rarely available to the market and their enduring appeal ensures that they are much sought after and admired. The current owners have made a significant number of improvements during their ownership whilst at the same time have been careful to retain its history, style and abundance of period features, including intricate ceiling coving, raised skirtings and fireplaces. Most windows have working shutters.

The property is extremely convenient and located within the quiet Victorian part of Nairn and is set in mature, secluded walled garden grounds.
