  • "Felt cottage was good value for money however bed was located against wall which meant both had to get out of bed if inside person required out, bed also very uncomfortable."

    Cottage decor could do with a refresh. Check in/ out process was very easy and owner was very pleasant on phone. I should also mention the lovely welcoming touches like milk in fridge, tea/coffee and biscuits and not forgeting the vase of lovely fresh flowers. All in all enjoyed our week in Driftwood Cottage as a base to explore, would go back.

  • "We had to make this booking at the very last minute as we were let down by other people."

    Sara, who we dealt with from Sykes, was absolutely great in providing us with information and sorting the booking out. The owner of the cottage was really helpful too. Nairn and the area as a place to visit is great. Lots of history and natural places around. A good variety of eating out establishments in the area and two good sized supermarkets in the town.

  • "Even though this cottage is small we had everything we needed and very close to shops and take always or restaurants."

    Unfortunately we couldn't park the car outside the cottage but free parking wasn't far away at all so that wasn't an issue. Overall we were very pleased with the cottage.

The property

This lovely ground floor apartment is tucked away quietly, yet very centrally situated in the town of Nairn, Scotland.

This delightful apartment would be ideal for a couple who want a holiday on the stunning Moray Firth coast.

From the front door guests turn left and follow the narrow path that gives direct access to the banks of the pretty River Nairn.

With the accommodation at ground floor level there is a comfortable sitting/dining room with warming fire, a double bedroom, a well-equipped kitchen and a shower room, in fact everything guests would need to ensure a relaxed stay.

The popular seaside town of Nairn attracts many visitors throughout the year, mainly for its coastal location complete with absolutely stunning beaches, and also as a base for touring the wider area.

This slightly bijou, yet cosy and comfortable apartment, is within a couple of minutes’ walk of all the many shops, restaurants and golf courses that the town has to offer, whilst the beach is a ten minute stroll away.

From Nairn, the famous Malt Whisky Trail can be easily accessed and what a great day out that makes as the many distilleries are very welcoming with friendly visitor centres, but also the stunning scenery can be enjoyed along the way.

Being close to Inverness, visitors will enjoy a trip to the vibrant capital city of the Highlands and perhaps visit the atmospheric Culloden Battlefield with its award-winning visitor centre.

Once in Inverness then Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness makes an amazing outing and who knows you may even spot Nessie!

This comfy apartment makes an ideal base for a wonderful holiday.

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.
