Marine House Luxury apartments

The village of Rosemarkie is located approximately 14 miles north east of the city of Inverness on the Black Isle. The area is famed for its scenic beauty and is an excellent base from which to enjoy outdoor pursuits such as golfing, sailing, hillwalking, fishing and more. The property fronts a picturesque bay, with views of Fort George and the Moray coastline. Rosemarkie boasts one of the finest beaches on the Moray Firth. Nearby Inverness is a vibrant and attractive city with excellent shopping, educational and medical facilities as one would expect from the capital of the Highlands. Inverness Airport is approximately 22 miles away and provides a variety of domestic and international flights.

The Marine Apartments are located within a magnificent Victorian building in Rosemarkie, extensively and comprehensively converted by the William Gray team into 11 luxuriously appointed apartments arranged over three levels.

We were delighted to be brought in to add the exterior landscaping features to match the fantastically restored building. The project began in at the start of 2017, and our in-house CAD team worked closely with Colin Armstrong Associates Chartered Architects to finalise the external works. The design included a large retaining wall, seating area and a set of steps leading down to the front garden.

The front garden alone consisted of staggered seating built into a 25m planter that breaks up the large bank, allowing for a selection of perennials to be planted. A large circular raised bed is also included in the garden area to add some colour and help break up the space for residents.

Install took the team less than 3 weeks, staggered to coincide with the other construction activity on site. With no cutting required the BlocX went together quickly and, due to the patented modular system, are strong and secure with a guarantee of 15 years on all builds.
