The Steading Blairmore, Rogart near Dornoch

Sleeps 4 - Wifi - Sauna - Wood Burner - Sorry No Pets

The Steading Blairmore is a beautiful and contemporary conversion of a traditional Highland barn.  Located near the small village of Rogart, the property provides an ideal base for exploring with the North Coast 500, Dunrobin Castle and the popular town of Dornoch within a short drive.

Throughout the property is stylishly furnished and equipped to a high standard. The main living accommodation of the Steading is open-plan with the sitting room and kitchen being one. This area has a feature wood burner and offers direct access to the patio areas, located to the front and rear of the property. The sitting room has luxurious leather sofas, and the kitchen with its Rangemaster cooker has everything any aspiring chef would need.   

The property has two bedrooms, a king and a double; both are beautifully furnished and quality bed linen and towels are provided. The king has an en-suite shower room and the double a Jack & Jill style shower room with access also available from the hall. Further facilities include a spacious utility room with a washing machine, fridge/freezer and a traditional pulley for drying clothes. The house is equipped with a luxurious sauna, ideal for relaxing in after a day exploring or walking in the local hills.

Outside the house offers various areas to sit and relax, including the patios that can be accessed from the open-plan sitting room/kitchen area, with garden furniture and a gas barbecue being provided. Lockable storage for outdoor gear including bikes is provided and ample off-road parking for up to three cars.

Rogart is a traditional Highland village that offers a peaceful haven to retreat to, with the convenience of nearby facilities. The village which is located two miles away is serviced by the local Spar shop, where you can pick up essentials, and at the Pittentrail Inn, Rogart’s pub and restaurant, tuck into traditional Scottish fare - or simply have a tipple.

In this area you can immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the hills and glens of the Highlands. There are plenty of outdoor activities to take part in, including hiking, fishing, shooting and mountain biking. In addition, this area of immense natural beauty is home to many awe-inspiring locations, such as the Falls of Shin, where you can watch the salmon leaping.

Several larger settlements along the coast offer services and activities. Golspie, the nearest town, is a 15-minute drive away. Here you can pretend you’re back in time at Dunrobin Castle. Between May and October, you can tour the castle and visit its museum. Whilst you’re there, wander around the beautiful gardens and witness one of their incredible falconry displays. A few miles north of Golspie is the village of Brora, well worth a trip to sample some of Capaldi’s delicious handmade ice cream.

A 20-minute drive south is Dornoch, where you can take a meander through the streets to visit the shops, museum and cathedral. Dornoch is famous for its golf course that has been in operation for nearly 150 years! If golf is not your kind of thing, why not relax on the golden sands of Dornoch beach? A few miles south is the town of Tain, which has a good range of facilities including supermarkets. Just outside the town is the Glenmorangie Distillery, where you can take a fascinating tour and stock up on Scotland’s ‘water of life’.
