A charming property situated in a quiet coastal Scottish village has just gone on the market.

Seaside House is a three-bedroom home in Avoch along the southeast shore of the Black Isle on the Moray Firth. It is currently available to buy for offers over £350,000.

As reported by the Scottish Daily Express, the property is nestled between the spectacular Moray and Cromarty Firths. It boasts breathtaking views over the water, with the Moray Firth famous for its dolphins that are often seen from the shore.

Seaside House has been in the same family since the 1840s, and has retained a wealth of period features. It would be perfect for a family who want their home to have a bit of history behind it.

In 2021, the property underwent a full renovation that saw it stripped back to its original stone walls. The works also involved the installation of high-quality fittings that complement the house's stunning coastal location while also retaining its original character.

As well as regular dolphin sightings, the bay right in front of Seaside House is also a sanctuary for a variety of bird species. Curlews, oystercatchers, ducks, swans and geese are among the species that you may regularly spot.

Meanwhile, Avoch is the perfect destination to live a quieter and more laid-back lifestyle. In addition to its picturesque coastal setting, it has a vibrant and friendly community — with year-round activities for all ages such as a wild swimming club and rowing club.

The village is also home to a wealth of amenities, including shops, a hotel, café, primary school, and a scenic harbour. There are also further facilities in the nearby town of Fortrose, while Rosemarkie boasts a beautiful sandy beach that is popular amongst swimmers, paddle boarders, and kite surfers alike.

The Black Isle is characterised by its fertile rolling countryside and stunning coastline of raised beaches and prominent headlands. The area is crisscrossed with marked cycle trails and walking paths, while the coastal villages provide sheltered harbours.

Elsewhere, Inverness is just 20 minutes away by car. It boasts all the amenities of a modern city, including an airport with frequent flights to the south of the UK and Europe.
