More about the village of Ardross

Ardross is located about 23 miles north of the Highland capital Inverness, and is in the county of Easter Ross. It lies on the B9176 road that runs between the town of Alness on the Cromarty Firth and the village of Bonar Bridge on the Dornoch Firth.

It is a small and scattered village with most of it's houses distributed in small groups centred on the townships of Ardross, Easter Ardross, Dalnavie and Cuillich. There is a primary school in Easter Ardross, and a small church at Ardross.

Our house is situated a few hundred metres off the main road, along a short single track road. This little road serves to provide access to our house, and just three others beyond us, so there is virtually no through traffic. To both the front and rear of us are open fields, with views over adjoining farmland to some of the hills around us. We are far enough off the main road that we do not hear any traffic noise.

Our house stands in it's own private plot measuring about 0.27 acres. The garden to the rear of the house faces south to catch the sun and has a small natrual burn running through it. Hence we feel we can offer you an extremely quiet and peacefull place to relax after a hard day in the hills, exploring or whatever else takes your fancy.

The nearest town is Alness, just 3 miles away. Here you will find a range of shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants. Other towns nearby are Dingwall, Invergordon, Tain, Dornoch, Strathpeffer, Muir of Ord, Beauly and of course Inverness.

Rather than try to describe the facilities these towns have to offer, I will instead point you to their own community web sites via the following links:        Alness      Invergordon
