Dolphin View description

Dolphin View is a semi-detached, traditional stone house overlooking the sea in the delightful seaside village of Balintore. Just yards from the shoreline, it enjoys superb views across the bay. Dolphins, porpoises and a wide variety of seabirds are regularly spotted from the windows. The attractive living room leads through to a formal dining room, with access to the gardens via patio doors. There is a well-equipped kitchen/dining area. There are four large bedrooms (one with en-suite facilities) and a family bathroom, making this ideal for larger families or groups. There is a further large grassed garden area opposite the house, which leads directly down to the sand and shingle beach.
Balintore is one of the pretty ‘seaboard’ villages that straddle this lovely Ross-shire coastline. With a beautifully kept seafront, small harbours and rocky outcrops interspersed with stunning sandy beaches, they are completely unspoilt and provide an idyllic seaside holiday away from the crowds.

Just a short walk from the cottage there is an excellent pub, restaurant, café and a small local store. The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Cycling, hill walking, golf, fishing, horse riding, sailing, canoeing and surfing can all be enjoyed locally. Within ten minutes’ drive lies the oldest Royal Burgh of Scotland. Predominantly built of local mellow sandstone, Tain is a charming historic town and offers an excellent selection of small shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs as well as a wide variety of sporting and recreational facilities.

The region has a fascinating history as it was the homeland of the Picts who inhabited the region even before the Vikings. A variety of fascinating, modern sculptures have also been placed along the shoreline – the most notable is the Balintore mermaid that sits on a rock in the sea. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
