North Balnoon Cottage is a character cottage situated in an idyllic location. It has fishing rights to the Rivers of the Bogie, Isla and Deveron and is 10 minutes walk from Forgue Fish Farm. The cottage has two bedrooms, a large kitchen and an expansive living area with panoramic countryside views.

The property comprises; a paneled entrance vestibule leading to a large open plan, well fitted kitchen with modern units and Scottish elm natural edge shelving with Victorian iron bracketing. On the right is a large bedroom with an attractive Morso Squirrel multi fuel stove and built in Scottish Elm shelving. To the left is the large second bedroom with built-in alcove and bookcase. Both bedrooms have stunning views over the valley and local hills.
The bathroom has been recently refurbished and is in an attractive cottage style with an L shaped bath and shower unit, electric heated towel rail and built in larch shelving. A staircase leads from the kitchen area to a very large living space that has recently been added to the property. The living space has spectacular and panoramic views of the valley, to the front, and the garden to the rear. The living space has potential to include an office area and a hobbyist's space.
There is a wood shed and storage room on the side of the cottage and a garden shed fitted out with bench and shelving for fly tying and hobbies. The property further benefits from stunning and much loved mature gardens.

The cottage is between Huntly (approximately 9 miles), Turriff (approximately 8.5 miles) where a variety of shops and amenities can be found. The property is within commuting distance of Aberdeen, Inverurie and the industrial areas of Dyce and the Bridge of Don. Primary schooling is available at Forgue, with secondary provided at Huntly. Balnoon Cottage offers a wonderful setting for someone looking to work from home (there is an 8mb/s BT internet connection to the property for working and streaming films etc.) yet not too far away from the nearby towns. The property is close to the commuter roads and the train station at Huntly provides train links to both the north and the south, giving this property the best of both worlds.
The cottage is 25miles from the Cairngorms National Park for hiking, skiing and climbing and 13.5 miles from the beaches on the north coast for swimming, walking and nature watching (seals are common and whales and dolphins can be seen). The cottage is a close to some of Scotland's most spectacular castles and stately homes such as Fyvie Castie, Haddo House and Leith House etc. The almost complete absence of light pollution means that the Milky Way is easily seen in the winter months and the cottage offers excellent opportunities for astronomy. The Northern Lights can be seen in the winter.
