The property

Resting in the seaside village of Cromarty, Black Isle in the Highlands of Scotland, this convenient spot provides everything you will need for the perfect family holiday, with easy access to the beach, and a quaint village to explore.

Seashell Cottage is a traditional stone-built Scottish cottage and a wonderful base for your Highland adventure.

Travel through a quaint seaside town and feel the fresh sea breeze in your hair as you approach this beautiful little property, parking close to the front door, painted an eye-catching red.

When you have unpacked your bags and need a rest after your journey, seek out the homely sitting room, filled with rugs, blankets, wooden furniture, and stylish sofas all filling the room with the essence of a seaside cottage, noting that there is also a selection of books to peruse and a woodburning stove to warm your feet as you recline with a coffee.

When stomachs start to rumble, family mealtimes will be convenient and social with an airy kitchen, sporting all of the home comforts desired to cook up a storm and present it on the central dining table.

Seaside themes can be discovered throughout this beautiful property, including local artwork, sculptures, real seashells, and pale blue and aqua hues accompany the bedrooms in relaxing decor, with the king-size room offering subtle wallpaper and a writing desk with a view to the village outside, and the twin room is fitted with a fireplace (not in use), model boats and wonderful blue bedding, so in keeping with the seaside position of the property that you can almost smell the sea breeze.

Outside, a small enclosed sitting area offers a platform for morning coffee, with a view to the village as you plan your day.

The beauty and traditional architecture of the cottage continues into the picturesque village of Cromarty, offering a wealth of attractions to fill your days with, beginning with the shops and stores of the village itself, selling local crafts and produce, including a spectacular bakery, or why not indulge in local culture and heritage with a trip to the Old Courthouse Museum?

Also available from the bay are boat trips, where you might be lucky enough to spy dolphins jumping in the clear blue sea, as well as exploring the wonderful shingle and sandy bays on offer, perfect for picnics, walks and watersports.

If you plan to head out of the village, then the next large town is Inverness, offering a variety of activities from Inverness Museum Art Gallery and, a golf course and a variety of restaurants, bars and shops to peruse at your leisure.

With so much to see, and a beautiful seaside atmosphere, a stay at Seashell Cottage will make the perfect getaway for you and your family.

About the location


Inverness 23.8 miles; Elgin 59.1 miles; Lossiemouth 63.8 miles.

Cromarty, poised on the tip of the Black Isle at the mouth of the Cromarty Firth, is the Highlands' best preserved historic town. It is a jewel, rich in history, folklore, striking architecture, and offers grand views of seven counties from the headland above it. But Cromarty is more than just an 18th-century town, providing a wealth of attractions for active travellers and holidaymakers, including sandy beaches, unusual architecture, Bottlenose Dolphins, eating places, a multi-award-winning museum, beautiful countryside, wildlife, and bird reserves of international importance, to name but a few. Being a car journey away from Inverness, the 'Capital of the Highlands', Cromarty combines the advantages of its convenience as a base from which to travel throughout the Highlands, with an apparent detachment from the mainstream tourist routes, giving the best of both worlds.
