Swordale House

Sleeping 10

Swordale House is an impressive country house oozing with character and opulence. Reached by a minor road just over 2 miles away from the popular Ross-Shire village of Evanton with its usual day to day village facilities, its location is rural without being too wild or remote.

Set within extensive grounds, the extremely attractive mature gardens are a mixture of wooded areas, shrubberies and a patio closer to the house with a walled and gravelled area providing a sheltered parking spot near to the house. Regarding the interior, quite simply put there is a room for all purposes; from the dining and drawing room to the snug and the snooker room!

On the ground floor there is a substantial main hall off which is the sitting room with a small office, a snug with open fire leading onto an impressive snooker room. From the kitchen there is an additional TV room and Utility area with a secondary hallway leading to the drawing room and fabulous dining room and a passageway to a WC and the conservatory. Upstairs on the first floor is a king size bedroom with en suite bathroom and two further double-bedded rooms, a twin room, a family bathroom and an additional shower room with WC. Continuing up to the second floor, there is a double bedroom and twin room.

In a beautiful country location, Swordale provides the ideal base for exploring the breathtaking Scottish Highlands, being within easy travelling distance of the west coast and the islands. The market town of Dingwall is within 10 miles and the highland capital city Inverness, offering all the facilities you would expect from a major tourist centre, is less than 20 miles distant.

Closer to home, Evanton itself has several tourist attractions, including the Fyrish monument, the Black Rock Gorge and the ruined church of Kiltearn lying near the river Sgitheach as it flows into the Cromarty Firth. In an area well known for its scenic beauty, there are many outdoor leisure pursuits to be enjoyed including hill walking, mountain biking, horse riding or take a boat trip out in the Cromarty Firth to see the dolphins and seals up close.
