House in Portmahomack, Easter Ross, Scottish Highlands, Scotland - Spectacular Location And Views With Immediate Access To Beach

Tarbat Lodge offers a spectacular location overlooking the picturesque stone harbour, with views across the Dornoch Firth to the Sutherland hills beyond. Portmahomack's beautiful, sandy beach is immediately adjacent to the house. Originally built in about 1740, the house has recently been refurbished to a very high standard for the use of the the owners' family and for guests. The period charm of this listed house has been enhanced with all "mod cons" provided.

The house has 5 bedrooms which can accommodate up to 12 people. However, due to the arrangement of the rooms it is equally suitable for smaller groups, for which a reduction in the rental charge may be available outside the high season. Pormahomack is located on the Tarbat peninsula which has a drier climate than most of Scotland and does not suffer from the midges prevalent in other parts. There are many things to see and do nearby, including superb golfing facilities.

Full-height fridge, additional fridge, freezer; dishwasher, capsule coffee maker.

Golf - The 9 hole Tarbat links golf course on the edge of the village is particularly attractive and welcomes visitors. The house offers an excellent base for golfers, being 12 minutes from Tain, 25 minutes from Royal Dornoch and within easy reach of courses at Golspie, Brora, Strathpeffer, Elgin and Nairn. There are 22 golf courses within an hour and 15 minutes drive.

Wheelchair accessible - The ground floor is accessible for people with wheelchairs and the downstairs bathroom (with shower) has a specially-designed, wide door to facilitate access. There are no bedrooms on the ground floor.

Truly wonderful place.

This is our fourth year here and we cannot speak highly enough of Tarbat Lodge. The setting, with spectacular views across the Dornoch Firth, is as stunning as you will find anywhere in the Highlands. The house itself has to be seen to be believed. No expense has been spared in the renovation of this beautiful and spacious lodge. The spectacular kitchen is very much the hub where we have enjoyed many fun nights. It's the highlight of our year and here's to many more visits!

Perfect property and location.

By Liz D. on 10-Sep-2016

Tarbat Lodge is a beautifully renovated house decorated and furnished to a very high standard. It is in prime location overlooking Portmahomack harbour and the Dornoch Firth with sea views from all the bedrooms. The house is spacious but still has a homely feel, with 2 cosy sitting rooms and a fantastic kitchen diner, with high quality appliances and all the kitchen gadgets you could possibly need.The porch on the front is a great place to relax and enjoy the views, with the benefit of being heated. The underfloor heating is simple and easy to control. The beds are extremely comfortable and there are great power showers you in the 4 bathrooms.

We have now holidayed here for 3 years and wouldn't choose to go anywhere else. No down sides, cannot recommend highly enough.

Portmahomack itself is a beautiful and peaceful place; no need to go far, but recommend trips to Dornoch and Cromarty.

There is plenty of information about the area and places to visit and eat provided in the house.

Best holiday home we’ve ever stayed in !

By Steve M. on 16-Jul-2016

We could not fault Tarbat Lodge. It suited us down to the ground as a holiday destination for our extended family which allowed us quality time together in beautiful surroundings. The place was so peaceful that we were just happy staying in the vicinity relaxing in the house and catching crabs along the jetty. There is however plenty to do in the surrounding area and the Tarbat Discovery Centre is an absolute must place to visit if you enjoy history.

Would recommend to anyone!

Lovely house.

By Hilary M. on 18-Jul-2015

We stayed in Tarbat Lodge in July and loved it. We are a large family group over 3 generations. The house has lots of living space including a huge, light, very well equipped dining kitchen with french doors leading to a stone patio area. The bedrooms all have sea views and are very comfortable (great beds!). Lovely bath/shower rooms with oodles of hot water. The front porch is lovely to sit in with a view over the Dornoch firth and the harbour, we saw dolphins! The garage was very handy for storing our canoes etc.
We know this area well and have stayed in other houses near here, but this is by far the nicest house in the very best location, highly recommended.

Exceeded our expectations. Loved it !

By Jeanine, Norwich. on 20-Sep-2014

This was our first visit to the area, the location is perfect with views of a fishing harbour, Dornoch Firth and a sandy beach. We were a large group of mixed ages. Some played golf, some went on long walks while others read in the sunny porch or cooked in the fabulous well equipped kitchen. We visited the Black Isle and took a boat trip to see the dolphins, Tain and Dornoch are nearby with a lot to see and do. This is the very best holiday home we have stayed in. Comfortable, well equipped, stylish and spacious. Can't recommend it more highly.

Beautiful, comfortable and fantastic !

By Frazer Family, London. on 12-Jul-2014

Each year our extended family of 3 generations holiday in Portmahomack. This was our first time staying in Tarbat Lodge and it was just wonderful. We loved everything about the house which is extremely well equipped has been renovated to a high spec throughout. The beds are very comfortable & the bedrooms have fabulous views. The 2 sitting rooms are cosy, comfortable and a great space for both old and young (or for the former to escape the latter!). The kitchen is lovely and spacious, opening onto a sunny terrace. We had the happiest of family holidays in Tarbat Lodge and are already excited about our return in 2015.

Top drawer

By Mike, Leeds. on 14-Jun-2014

Tarbat Lodge is the finest holiday house we have ever stayed in. Situated opposite the harbour in the quiet coastal village of Portmahomack, this substantial property affords magnificent views across the Dornoch Firth. The house is beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable and well equipped. Even when fully occupied there is a real sense of space. Everything has been well thought out and finished to the highest standard.That's not to say it's a precious house - far from it, everything about the place makes for a happy and relaxing holiday - including the four luxury bathrooms! Our family gathering across three generations were thrilled to stay at Tarbut Lodge. After a day messing about on one of the magnificent local beaches or a ferry trip to the Black Isle, our evening gatherings in the spectacular kitchen were the highlight of the holiday. This is an exceptional house in an enviable location we cannot recommend it more highly.
