Guest Reviews


    • “I had a fantastic stay at this cottage. It was very cosy and had everything you would need. The welcome pack was a nice treat, they even too onboard that I am a coeliac and got in some nice cakes that I could eat. The garden at the front of the property was very safe for my small dog. I will be re booking another trip to this lovely cottage.”

The owner is very thoughtful and kind. I would recommend the cottage to anybody wanting to explore the Highlands, you won't regret it.”

About the location


Inverness 16 miles.

Nairn is an attractive and lively seaside town dating back to Victorian times. It has long been a popular holiday destination and is just 16 miles from the Millennium town of Inverness. Nairn even lays claim to being one of the driest and sunniest places in the country! The town offers some of the top beaches in Scotland and cleanest bathing waters in Britain. Also, one of the only two dolphin colonies in the UK is based in the Moray Firth. Nairn is steeped in history and is closely linked with the Battle of Culloden, whilst nearby Fort George is Europe’s best preserved 18th century military fortification. Golfing enthusiasts will be attracted to the two 18-hole championship courses, including the Nairn Golf Club. An ideal centre for exploring, or just relaxing.
