The original glass houses on this site were used to provide various exotic fruits and vegetables to the gentry in Mountgerald House. The current owners Kenneth and Lesley Mackenzie converted the old buildings in 2010/11. The original stonework from the supporting wall of these glass houses can be seen on arrival as it now forms the east wall of the main lounge.
The accommodation now includes one Master-King with en-suite shower room plus a further double bedroom, which can be converted into a twin room on request. There is a second family shower room, a utility/boot room and a dining kitchen with patio doors opening out to the private views south over the Cromarty Firth to The Black Isle.
There are heated floors throughout, a wood-burning stove in the spacious lounge with 42" plasma television, blu-ray DVD player, iPod dock, free Wi-Fi, solid oak flooring and luxurious leather sofas. Heating is provided by LPG supplemented by solar panels and is all included.
Outside Greenhouse Cottage is parking for two cars. Disabled access is good to a ramp adjacent to the private driveway. The low threshold door allows easy access to the main entrance.
From April until October in the adjacent fields three Highland cattle known as The Mountgerald Highlanders roam freely and are very fond of having their photographs taken.
We have tried to make Greenhouse Cottage child friendly, providing a travel cot, stair gate, and high chair on request. There is a children's play park available on the flat grass area just above Greenhouse Cottage, which includes swings, slide, picnic table, monkey bars and a tower.
