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.

By Simon H. on 15-Jul-2017

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.

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 !

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!
