We are very pleased to have recently been awarded the Visit Scotland Four Star rating for the fourth year running. This reflects our commitment to maintain our high standards of comfort, cleanliness, and attention to detail – we aim to make our highland cottage feel like home from home and the number of clients who return year after year proves that we are successful!
This charming Highland retreat is suitable for couples looking for a romantic getaway, a family seaside holiday or as a base for sporting activities. Refurbished to a high standard, the house is located within the small community of Fishertown, on the edge of Nairn, an ancient fishing port and market town around 16 miles east of Inverness. The house caters for up to six people; see the About the House page for full details of the facilities the house has to offer. Key features and highlights of the house and surrounding location are:
-Only 50 metres from Beach
-Situated within the gateway to the Highlands; well located to explore Inverness and surrounding areas (including Loch Ness, Fort George, Cawdor, Culloden Battlefield)
-Championship Golf courses on your doorstep
-Walking distance to restaurants, pubs and shops
-20 minutes from Inverness Airport
The fishing village of Nairn is the Moray Firth’s flagship resort, famous for its award-winning beaches, its dry, sunny climate and the popular sport of golf. Imagine a game of golf or a stroll on the promenade; balmy summers are a speciality of a Nairn cottage holiday.
Family seaside holidays don’t come much better – the beach receives the highly-esteemed Blue Flag Award year after year. Why not take a stroll the beach to the harbour whilst eating ice-cream, or enjoy the view from one of the sea-front cafes. Backed by grassy dunes, the golden sands overlook the stunning Moray Firth – don’t forget to pack your binoculars and look out for the resident school of dolphins; or book a wildlife spotting trip on one of the many pleasure boats down at the harbour. A small theatre and museum provide information and history on the local area, incorporating a collection from the former Fishertown museum, which includes details and history of the tight knit community of families who, for generations, made their living from the sea.
A Nairn holiday cottage is also the perfect choice for the golfing enthusiast, boasting two championship links courses, each one offering 18 holes of unforgettable play amid spectacular scenery. Both have also hosted a number of important championships, and Castle Stuart will host the forthcoming 2012 Scottish Open, as well as other prestigious events. Cawdor and Brodie castles are nearby, not forgetting Culloden Battlefield and Fort George (Europe’s best preserved 18th Century military fortification).
All-in-all this is an ideal area to visit the Gateway to the Highlands.
