Currently in use as a successful and popular holiday letting, this outstanding cottage and annex receive nothing but glowing reviews. Located in Tomatin, an attractive village on the River Findhorn and set in the heart of whisky country, Morile Mhor is an exceptional traditional cottage that has been maintained to a high standard. Built over 120 years ago, the property has been meticulously renovated and modernised, offering a delightfully iconic house and setting that benefits from modern fittings and design standards.
Set amongst lush fields and featuring lawns, gravel paths and paved drives, the main property is a wonderful example of a Highland cottage and the many deep-set windows and fresh neutral palette ensure the rooms are filled with light.
The principal space is a generously proportioned living and dining room featuring several windows, including a charming cottage window and a larger window seat close to a wood-burning stove. This room also leads onto a substantial conservatory that offers views across the incredible countryside. A lovely feature of this space is the revealed stonework from the original construction of the cottage.
The kitchen is a haven of practicality and comfort with its stylish light grey tiles, cream floor and wall cabinets and wooden worktops giving a modern edge to a pretty country kitchen.
The ground floor bathroom is generous and again filled with light. Its contemporary appliances include a bath with shower over, WC, wash hand basin and vanity units.
Carpeted stairs lead to the upper floor with its two large bedrooms, the largest of which offers plenty of space for furnishings, maximising the property’s income potential should the new owner choose to continue to offer Morile Mhor as a successful holiday let. Again, the upstairs rooms offer all the charm and features of a delightful country cottage with natural wood fittings, sloping ceilings, deep-set windows, and panelled doors.
Across a paved parking area is a substantial coach house featuring an integrated double garage. In keeping with the main house, this detached annex offers all the style and meticulous attention to detail elsewhere on the property. With a comfortable open-plan living area and kitchen, two generous bedrooms and a large bathroom with a separate walk-in shower and drying area, this delightful house offers the potential to either let or serve as a splendid space for family members.
With its location in one of the most beautiful parts of the Highlands and its exceptional wildlife and outdoor opportunities, the excellent property offers a considerable scope as a magnificent home for an extended family or to continue as a thriving and much loved holiday destination. Whatever the preference, this is somewhere that does need to be viewed soon.
Tomatin is conveniently located just 16 miles from the city of Inverness and 15 miles from the popular tourist centre of Aviemore, making it perfect for both commuting and attracting visitors to the area.
With a population of about 600, the village has a small but strong community. Local residents include young families, professionals, and retirees. Independent businesses, Tomatin Distillery, tourism and IT make up much of the local workforce, with others commuting to comparatively close Inverness and Aviemore.
Highlighting a rich, unique blend of Scottish heritage and contemporary culture, Tomatin is surrounded by forests, biking paths, and hiking routes, attracting tourists from around the world. With abundant local wildlife and spectacular scenery, the area captures all that makes the Highlands such a world class destination.
Situated close to major routes yet far enough away to be undisturbed by them, Tomatin serves as an excellent location for those interested in a peaceful destination, offering an air of tranquillity and escape while still close enough to major towns to enjoy all the benefits of modern living.
The village has one primary school, village stores, and the fabulous newly constructed Strathdearn Community Hub. More comprehensive amenities and services can be found in nearby Inverness and Aviemore.
