    Marybank Lodge stands within its own secluded grounds on an elevated site above the River Balnagown. The property enjoys beautiful views over the Balnagown Estate to the Cromarty Firth and the Black Isle beyond. These encompass a variety of farmland, woodland and heather clad hills and is an accessible and idyllic point from which to enjoy the many splendours of the highlands.

    The property is 36 miles north of Inverness airport, with easy access via the A96 and A9. The local village of Tain is 6 miles to the east providing shopping and supermarkets whilst the small historic town of Dornoch just 14 miles away provides a traditional Scottish experience. A variety of Whisky distilleries are also scattered through the area and provide tours and tastings.

    Marybank Lodge lies within the natural splendour of the world renowned Balnagown Estate, which was once the historic seat of the Clan Ross.

    There are a variety of reputable and popular golf courses in the area, that draw golfers from around the world. The Royal Dornoch golf course and Tain golf course are within a 12 mile radius and Brora and Golspie golf courses within a 30 mile radius.

    Marybank is an exceptionally attractive Georgian Lodge. It has been subject to extensive refurbishment resulting in a traditional yet contemporary style. This was completed in 1999 and now provides a sophisticated and cosy atmosphere from which to enjoy the Highland area.

    Marybank Lodge was originally constructed in the 1760's from harled stone with a slate roof and is equipped with an open sided porch overlooking the Balnagown River. It has attractive timber framed, double glazed windows throughout.

    The ground floor rear entrance opens into a timber floored hallway that leads through the extent of the property. It leads first into the traditional and homely dining area, capable of seating up to twelve and complete with a solid burning stove. This is accompanied by a spacious and contemporary kitchen that can facilitate extensive meal preparation.

    The hall then leads onto two spacious living areas, the second of which is complimented by an open fire place.

    Due to the unique nature of the property having once been separated into a hunting lodge and stalkers cottage, the lodge and cottage have their own upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms. The lodge is two and a half storeys, with access to the higher floors at the front left elevation. The second floor is equipped with two double bedrooms with en-suite facilities and the top floor with two twin bedrooms and one shower room. The cottage is two storeys, with the second floor accessible at the rear left elevation, is adorned with two double bedrooms and a
    shower room on the second floor.

    As the property was once semi-detached it is now well suited to multi generation living with spacious social areas and cosy private hideaways.

    Heating and hot water is provided by two combi-boilers that are located in two utility rooms on the ground floor.

    The rear of the property is sheltered by a woodland canopy and the front of the property overlooks the well maintained garden that has been historically cultivated by the talented Balnagown Estate garden staff. A private and gravelled driveway leads to the property and ample parking is provided towards the rear of the property.
