Inverness is within easy reach and has all the facilities of a modern city including its new university and airport with regular flights to the south and summer flights to Europe.

The surrounding area is beautiful and unspoilt and provides an ideal base for the outdoor enthusiast, with a wide range of walks and mountain bike trails, challenging mountain climbs and fishing for salmon and trout on local rivers. The west coast, famous for its stunning coastline and sandy beaches, is under an hour’s drive away, while the Cairngorms Ski Centre is also within easy reach.

Castle Lodge comprises a main house, a separate cottage and a gym complex with adjacent garages, all set in approximately 3.8 acres of wooded grounds.
