  • "Very well equipped and Pat had thought of everything that one might need."

    The cottage was very clean and bright,excellent head height in rooms.The off road parking was a boon as the streets of Auldearn are narrow and the garden ,though small,was child friendly as well as providing outdoor dining /relaxing space for adults.

  • "Had a fabulous week at Boath Road in Auldearn."

    The cottage was clean and cosy. Great facilities. Thanks Pat for the welcome pack. Good communication from Pat. The sauna was great we enjoyed it more than a hot tub. We have an x-trail and got it parked no problem in the adjacent parking spot. The road and Auldearn generally are quiet, which we like. It was so comfortable and quiet we were sleeping for 9 and 10 hours which is unheard of for me. Auldearn is handy for Inverness, Nairn, the Black Isle (make sure you visit the brewery), Beauly and Muir of Ord to the west and North. Cullen, Elgin, Portknockie to the east. Not far from Culloden either. We will be back I reckon. If you get the chance and in Inverness head to the Black Isle rooms for fantastic pizza and their own ales and beers. We visited twice in a week..

  • "The cottage is in a quiet village with great modern facilities, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, also a good Pub just a 2 minute walk from main street, the off road parking is ideal for a small to medium car only, very difficult to park on Boath Road as it is very narrow."

  • "The cottage was extremely clean and had everything we needed."

    All the extras were a lovely surprise like the milk, wine, biscuits and toiletries. We had a very comfortable stay and will certainly recommend the cottage to friends.

  • "The cottage is small but beautifully appointed."

    The bathrooms are excellent, and the kitchen (quite a novelty this) is very well equipped with sharp knives and a good range of utensils so that cooking is actually possible! Auldearn has a lovely pub which is 2 minutes walk from the cottage, and serves good 'pub-grub'. The pub staff are very friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage and area and will definitely return

  • "House had practically everything we could have wanted."

    The sauna was a real bonus as was the downstairs shower room and toilet. The property was immaculately clean and comfortable throughout. There were no 'nice views' from the garden or the windows and the parking space to the side was not easy to manoeuver into from the street (other parked cars were the real problem). The welcome bottle of Prosecco was a nice touch. We had a wonderfully restful holiday and enjoyed the location, which was very convenient for the Nairn Sainsbury's Superstore and road links for travelling further afield . The two nearby restaurants (The 1645 and The Kale Yard) were very good and worth a visit.

  • "The cottage was extremely comfortable, very well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    The garden was lovely and the strawberries were an added bonus! The village of Auldearn was really central for all of the places we wanted to visit. We'd recommend the 1645 Inn just around the corner for lovely meals. We appreciated the bottle of Prosecco the owners left for us, it was a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday there and would love to return to 1, Boath Road in the future.

  • "This was a lovely, comfortable cottage."

    We were stranded in the UK while waiting for flights home during the pandemic, and this cottage provided such a lovely space to wait for new flights. The sandpit was a hit with our five year old - she also loved having a TV in her room!

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 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. Shakespeare’s famed Cawdor Castle and Brodie Caste are both within 15 mins drive. Golfing enthusiasts will be attracted to the two 18-hole championship courses, including the Nairn Golf Club, and the town also has an outdoor tennis court as well as a squash court for hire. The yearly Nairn Highland Games in August draws a wide crowd and The Nairn Book and Arts Festival is a popular year event. Whitewater rafting, tubing and cliff jumping are all available for those with a spirit for adventure. Day trips from the local airport are available to Orkney and Shetland and the Cairngorm National Park with skiing and hiking are within 1 hour. Nairn is an ideal centre for exploring, or just relaxing.
