Croy is a small village overlooking the Moray Firth in the Highland region of Scotland between Nairn and Inverness. The village has a small primary school and a village shop. Just a mile from Croy is Kilravock Castle which has been the seat of the Clan Rose since the 15th century. Nairn is seven miles away and 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 city 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 three 18-hole championship courses, including the Nairn Golf Club which staged the Walker Cup in 1999 and Castle Stuart has hosted the Scottish Open.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property, it was comfortable and clean. It was so quiet and relaxing. I would be happy to book this accommodation again.

Just returned from a fantastic family holiday. A great base for exploring the Scottish Highlands. The property was great with a great view of the Moray Firth and the Black Isle. Owners very friendly and helpful.
Mr Carroll, Sheffield, July 2012
The owners were very welcoming. Everything we needed was there. We had not had a cottage holiday before but would not hesitate to do so again. Many thanks to all concerned. We travelled a lot while we were there and we could not fault anything.
Mrs Mann, High Wycombe, June 2012
Fabulous, well maintained modern property with wonderful views from the balcony of the Moray Firth, Black Isles and surrounding countryside. Ideally located for Inverness/ Nairn. Friendly owners. We would definitely stay again!
