Description

The second renovation project from the owners of Tangle Tower, Evelix is an old schoolhouse that has been given a new lease of life as a luxurious holiday home. Located in the village Muir of Ord, which is just 13 miles from the Highland capital of Inverness, the property sits by the road with a good acre of beautiful wild garden within the grounds. The school house has been sympathetically restored to retain the character this building once had, with feature pieces including a gorgeous antique double bed and an old wooden school desk. The main living area is open plan, with sage green walls, oak floors and a high ceiling. The dining table is octagonal in shape (another antique!) and comfortably seats 4. There is also the added bonus of a woodburning stove in this room, so cosy up and enjoy a night in front of the fire with your favourite tipple in hand. The master bedroom on the ground floor has been tastefully decorated and furnished to tie in with the rest of the house, and off this room is a modern, ensuite shower room with quirky tartan floor tiles. The bedroom upstairs feels almost regal with royal blues and the antique double bed. Both bedrooms have feature ‘art deco’ fireplaces which add to the charm of this house. Downstairs, the family bathroom is extremely spacious and contains a deep purple freestanding bath as the focal point of the room, as well as a separate shower cubicle. As is the theme throughout the property, there are little finishing touches of items from the past, and in here there is a vintage washboard hanging on the wall. Outside, there is a small patio which is perfect for warm summer evenings, and an unfenced burn that runs through the enclosed garden, so children and pets must be supervised at all times.

The property is located right on the edge of Muir of Ord, and all local amenities are within walking distance (the pub is just a 5 minute walk!). Evelix is a fantastic base from which to explore the Highlands – Inverness, the Black Isle and Achnasheen are all just a short drive away from the property, so there are plenty of places to go during your stay. A visit to Loch Ness should definitely be on the cards too, as well as a day trip further North exploring the likes of Dornoch with its gift shops, golf course and sandy beach.

    Evelix reviews
    We loved the accommodation and every little thought being taken care of. Comfort and creative design high on the agenda. The area is close to Inverness to research your family tree. We went to Nairn beach and enjoyed a long walk there. Quaint shops and fishermans cottages. Another day we went to Channery point near Rosmarkie and saw 2 pods of dolphins. Remember your camera! Wish we had brought our bicycles as it is a great area for cycling, with many paths. We explored Reelig Glen and one of the oldest trees. Beauly has a fantastic delicatessen and cafe combined. What a gem of a small town. The Black Isle is worth a visit and Evelix too.
    Mr Currie - May 2018
    We stayed at Evelix for a few days over Easter and absolutely loved it. The house has been lovingly restored and it was a pleasure to stay in. A cosy peaceful place to relax with nice walks on your doorstep. It was very well equipped and the bedrooms were very comfortable. We loved the décor and kept noticing new things in the house each day! The bathroom/bath is amazing! We explored The Black Isle where there are many nice places to visit and Evelix really did act as the perfect base.
