    “What lovely holiday cottage.”

    Perfect for a larger family with lots of space. Lovely base to Scotland but also very close to the beach for an evening walk/play.

About the property

This spacious cottage occupies a private corner location in the charming area of Nairn known as Fishertown.

This area is very close to the coast and has an ambience all of its own.

The array of pretty cottages also benefit from the excellent facilities that the town of Nairn has to offer.

Cantie Cottage provides smart accommodation over two floors and is ideal for a family or group of friends who will love the close proximity to the gorgeous sandy beaches.

There is a rather neat double bedroom at ground floor level and three more on the upper floor.

The homely farmhouse style kitchen is very well-equipped and the utility room has a drying pulley ideal if you have been swimming in the sea!

In the evening guests can relax in the sitting room with its welcoming open fire.

At the front of the cottage is a very private courtyard that is an excellent place for a summer evening barbecue before a stroll on the beach to watch the sunset.

Nairn itself is also famous for being home to two championship golf courses along with a busy little High Street with plenty of shops to suit all requirements.

Close by you can pick up the Malt Whisky Trail and not only enjoy the stunning Speyside scenery but enjoy a free dram from the many distilleries along the way, if you are not driving of course.

The area is rich in wildlife and visitors must take advantage of the many boat trips available to venture out onto the waters of the Moray Firth for a bit of dolphin watching.

All in all a great location for a holiday and a simply ideal cottage that will be appreciated by all.

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.
