This gem of a cottage has been lovingly furnished by the current owner, who farms thousands of acres of the historic flow country in the heart of Caithness. Whilst superbly modernised throughout, the cottage retains its original features, including wonderful flagstone flooring in the main living room, deep-silled windows set into thick stone walls, and a large wood burner for cosy evenings. The high ceilings ensure that it is light and airy, while much of the woodwork throughout has been hand-crafted by a local craftsman, adding to its unique charm and ambience. There is a deep leather suite in the living room set around the fireplace. The kitchen/dining room is bright and modern, with built-in units and appliances. There are two double bedrooms at at the far end of the cottage, with a large family bathroom. The views from the cottage and gardens are unbelievable. Panoramic vistas look east to Morven and the Scarabens, south to Ben Klibreck and west to distant views of Ben Loyal and Ben Hope. The gardens surrounding the cottage are a real delight, with a walled garden and large grassed area at the back, making an ideal spot for pets and children.

The surrounding area is an outdoor and nature lover’s paradise. With no noise from traffic and no lights to be seen, it is completely undisturbed and secluded. There are numerous grassy tracks in the thousands of acres surrounding Torran, where deer roam and birdlife abounds, including rare scooter duck on the nearby loch and osprey nesting in the adjoining hills. An RSPB nature reserve is close by. This will appeal to walkers, cyclists and anyone looking for the ultimate get away.

Visitors can fish the surrounding lochs and river for salmon and trout with the owner of the cottage’s permission free of charge. The nearby village of Halkirk, just 6 miles away, has a good selection of facilities, including a thriving pub with meals, local store and other amenities. Beach 14 miles.
