The kitchen has a lovely traditional feel yet with a modern edge with high gloss units and tiled work surface. There is a Rayburn which can be used for the heating and hot water and also an electric Lamoa oven with gas hob. Space and plumbing is available for a washing machine. To the rear of the kitchen is a very useful walk-in shelved pantry.
The lounge/diner is a lovely light and spacious room which has dual aspect windows with views over the front garden to Bonar Bridge and the Kyle of Sutherland. The room has painted wood clad walls and a feature stone fireplace with polished Caithness stone hearth which houses a multi-fuel stove.

Nestled in a woodland setting with echoes of New England painted "shiplap" board houses, this pretty property backs onto Carbisdale woodland. Most well known for the remarkable castle of the same name. Carbisdale Wood is a joy for wildlife enthusiasts with miles of well maintained woodland walks and for adrenalin junkies the woodland plays host to a series of mountain bike trails with different levels of difficulty. This amazing playground is accessed by a little used entrance as the main car park is elsewhere. The Invershin pub is a 25 minute walk or 10 minute cycle ride away. The railway station linking Inverness and Thurso/Wick is down in the village, a 10 minute walk away.
Stucan Iobairt is located in the scattered settlement of Culrain which sits on the southern side of the Kyle of Sutherland and is approached by a private lane. The Kyle is a magnificent setting for family life and it links the glens and mountains, where the famous Oykel, Cassley and Shin salmon rivers rise, with the sea and the thriving historic centres of Dornoch and Tain.
Bonar Bridge, Ardgay, Gledfield and Culrain together form a strong community well served with two primary schools (with secondary schooling at Tain and Dornoch), a surgery, chemist and nearby Migdale Hospital, a post office, butchers, grocers, hardware and general store, mobile bank, library, police station, fire station, various eateries and a takeaway. There is even a 9-hole golf course. There are two newly opened hubs, one in Ardgay and one in Bonar Bridge offering business facilities, a soft play and gym.
The city of Inverness is about 1 hour by car and provides a full range of services, university and theatre. It is the main transport hub for trains south and east and has an airport for national and some international flights.
