Property description

Balinroich Farm is situated 33 miles northeast of Inverness in Easter Ross in what is known as the Tarbat Peninsula. The farm was originally the home of the Allan Estate, with Allan House holding a commanding central position. The farm is located 1.5 miles southwest of the village of Hill of Fearn which offers a primary school, post office and railway station. The nearby Town of Tain provides further services including shops, leisure facilities, two primary schools and Tain Royal Academy.

The A9 links easily to Inverness which offers an extensive range of amenities and is one of Europe's fastest growing cities, with a quarter of the Highland population living in or around it. It is ranked fifth out of 189 British cities for its quality of life and is the highest of any Scottish city. Inverness Airport can also be easily reached and offers regular domestic and European Flights.

There is an abundance of recreational pursuits in the area including stalking and shooting, trout and salmon fishing, equestrian, scenic trips, beaches at Sandwick Bay, boats trips that include sea fishing and dolphin watching and of particular note are the seven well regarded golf courses including the famous championship course at Royal Dornoch.

Allan House Is situated at the heart of the estate and is a substantial Victorian House which was extended in the 1800s. More recently the property has gone through a programme of extensive yet sympathetic upgrading and now blends beautiful modern specifications with period charm and character. The building is approached by a tree lined driveway which continues onto a stone chip bed and lovely surrounding garden grounds. To the side of the main house is the Garden House which is of stone construction with a pitched roof and offers a flexible layout with 1 public room and 5 bedrooms. Internally Allan house is simply stunning with an instantly impressive entrance hall with a grand stair case and evident period features, 2 commodious public rooms, generous dining kitchen, guest lounge, 10 bedrooms, 9 En-suite shower rooms, and 3 dressing rooms.
