The NeighborhoodThe Black Isle is unique - not an island, though! Lovely clean beach 3 miles away, and dolphins in the Firth. The Moray Firth is renowned for good weather - we rarely catch the worst of it. Plenty of walking available, and even in high summer, you can always find peace and quiet. You will find several popular cafes and restaurants nearby in Avoch and Fortrose. We visited, fell in love with Scotland , and built our own house 2 years ago - and have never regretted it!

                  "Tanera More", Avoch, Black Isle, is a beautiful historic listed fisherman's cottage in a conservation area, ideally situated on the shore of the Moray Firth. Recently refurbished within, it is the perfect highland getaway. Fabulous choice for nature lovers, out door enthusiasts, families, friends. Dolphin watching boat trips run daily from the harbor. The Highlands and Islands of Scotland are probably the most stunning and varied landscape of the British Isles! Life runs at a more relaxed pace as towns and villages spread out and traffic slows to a sensible, sheep friendly speed on the exposed roads through the glens. Wild life is close to hand and deer need special attention from the driver as they suddenly appear on the roads, as do pheasants who once on the road seem to find it very difficult to decide which way they plan to go and often just run ahead of the car this way and that uncertain of a safe exit!! Red Kites, Buzzards, Rabbits, Badgers, Pine Martins, Grouse, Ducks, Osprey, Eagles, Red Squirrels, Ptarmigans, Otters, Puffins, and many other mammals and sea birds live here or make it their seasonal home. The east coast enjoys a sheltered position and agriculture is primary to local communities. Inverness our Highland capital is a transport hub and cultural hot spot. Eden Court Theatre has an exciting program of classical and popular concerts, musicals shows, theater, opera, two cinemas showing a varied selection of films a popular cafe and restaurant. The lovely Town House also provides a venue for chamber music. Boat trips down the canal to Loch Ness are always in search of the legendary monster and there are plenty of local distilleries to visit for a taste of "the good stuff" Summer visitors enjoy the many castles that open their grounds to the public and winter attracts skiers to the Cairngorms. The ancient mountains are accessible all year round but the long summer days make a day out last so much longer!! A visit to the highlands can not be complete without a visit to the Isle Skye and now there is a bridge no one need wait for a boat to take them "over the sea to Skye" Tanera More sits on a quite street in front of the sea. The village of Avoch built around the harbour has; a post office, general store & three takeaway's to suit all tastes. The cottage has off road parking space to the side & seating area on the grassy shore. Large garden to the rear is somewhat wild and perfect for adventurous children.
