The Old School House
Logie Easter
‘A laid back luxury - no frill’s escape - where you can truly unwind in comfort in a beautiful setting’
.
.
The Old School House Logie Easter is a beautifully restored Victorian schoolhouse situated mid-way between Tain and Invergordon. It sits in splendid isolation surrounded by fields and the Morangie Forest as its backdrop. It is accessed directly from the famous A9 NC500 route and is conveniently just a few minutes from the nearest supermarket and town.
.
A restored well situated in the front garden is reported to have been of significant historical importance visited by King James IV who came to drink the water which was believed to have healing properties.
.
The location is ideal for exploring the Scottish Highlands and Islands as well as having numerous local attractions close by such as 5 castles, numerous distilleries (the famous Morangie distillery being just down the road) and several sandy beaches. The Morangie forest offers miles of forest walks and tracks including bike trails.

The Old School House was built in 1890 and re-furbished and extended out to the back in 2007. The present layout consists of the main house at the front and three self-contained apartments which have interlocking doors which separate the apartments with the option to open up the whole house as one.
.

You are staying in the middle of the three apartments, known as apartment two. There is an interlocking door to apartment one at the back of the kitchen and an interlocking door to apartment three from the main apartment room. These doors will remain locked during your stay for your security and privacy.

The garden grounds extend to two acres and you are free to use the grounds for your recreation and leisure. There are some resident birds of prey and we get the occasional visit from deer in the field behind us. In Spring time the surrounding fields are bustling with baby lambs. The tree line behind the house marks the start of the Morangie Forest with its wonderful walks and cycling trails. Our closest neighbours are nearly half a mile away.
.

You can be walking on our wonderful beaches after a short car journey. We have fishing and golf courses nearby, riding, bike trails, museums, distilleries and of course we are ideally placed for day trips to Skye, Inverness, John O’Groats and the NC 500. Loch Ness and the Steam Train at Fort William are an easy drive.
