Overview

About the property

Firth Cottage is a pretty semi-detached cottage situated in tranquil wooded grounds in the hamlet of Alcaig on the Black Isle.

Firth cottage features stunning views of the Cromarty Firth with the mountains Easter Ross beyond from the large open-plan living area. It's a view which is constantly changing with the tide and light. The tidal Firth is a haven for wildlife and ospreys can be seen most days in the summer months from the cottage fishing over the Firth and in the winter thousands of geese can be seen.

The cottage is spotlessly clean, modern, well-equipped and peaceful.

There are 2 bedrooms that can sleep a maximum 4 people. It has a very spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, washer-dryer machine, gas hob, electric oven, microwave and fridge-freezer. Of the 2 bedrooms, one contains a King Size bed while the other has 2 twin beds. Both bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.

The lounge has a TV with Freeview, a DVD Player with a selections of DVDs, a CD/Radio, games and lots of information and leaflets including our own comprehensive and unique guide to the area. There's under-floor heating throughout controlled by individually controllable thermostats in each room and a heated towel radiator in the shower room.

From the lounge, french doors open out onto the private patio area which has tables and chairs. There are shared wooded gardens that host a large amount of bird life. The cottage is located at the end of a private drive and has parking for 2 cars.

Despite the peace and quiet, the cottage is conveniently located for the town of Dingwall (3 miles away) and the Highland's capital Inverness (12 miles). It is also the perfect base for touring the Highlands being at the hub of the road network. Some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK - Glen Affric, Loch Ness, Torridon, Assynt - is less than an hour away. The Black Isle itself has historical villages like Cromarty, great beaches such as Rosemarkie and in Chanonry Poiunt has the best land location to see dolphins in the UK.

A well-behaved pet may be allowed at no extra cost but only by arrangement.

In short, the Firth Cottage offers you the opportunity to stay in a clean, comfortable, quiet location with exceptional views and be perfectly located for the best the Highlands has to offer.

Perfect base for exploring Black Isles

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage easily big enough for our family of four plus our dog. Plenty to see and do in the area (do read Davids local guide it's excellent) and we will be back one day to see the bits we did not have time for.

Cozy and comfortable in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in Firth Cottage on the Black Isle. David and Amanda have thoughtfully provided everything we needed to feel like we were at home. The location was great for nearby hiking and beach visits. David's guide to the region was very helpful in planning our daily activities. We were traveling with out 2.5 year old and both the cottage and the area were very family friendly.

Clean, lovely views, quiet, windy!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was spotless, modern and has all modern conveniences and good water pressure. There was a great collection of tourist information and maps. It was a good location for touring The Black Isle, Inverness, and further north. Unfortunately there is no shoreline access nearby.

Lots of hot water. We couldn't figure out how to turn down the heating so the cottage was very warm by late afternoon.

My husband loved the views from the sitting room.

Beautiful cottage with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is outstanding. Clean, warm and spacious. A lovely welcome pack and even our little dog was thought of in way of a bowl of water on a tray. Beds were very comfy. Basically it has everything you could think of.

And the views! Amazing. I could've sat and looked at it all day.

If you are coming up to see the dolphins it is only a short drive away. We saw them twice. Amazing. We will definitely come back.
