Overview

About the property

3 bedroom cottage close to beach

If you are looking for a holiday in the Scottish Highlands with a touch of luxury then look no further..... The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and has 3 bedrooms and 3 shower rooms, 2 of which are en-suite. It is ideally suited to families of all ages.

The cottage is situated in the rural Easter Ross village of Saltburn, by the shores of the Cromarty Firth. From the front there are splendid open views towards the Black Isle. It's on the shoreline of the Cromarty Firth that a variety of wildlife can often be seen and a walk along the beach will always be interesting.

The cottage is an ideal base to visit the many whisky distilleries and castles in the area. Only a few miles away is the Balnagown estate which has good opportunities to explore the outdoors with dedicated cycling and walking routes. There are good golf courses in the local area which are set in some wonderful scenery.

The Royal Burgh of Tain is 10 minutes drive away. This quaint small town is steeped in local history dating back a thousand years. Here you can walk down the narrow streets and visit some of the old buildings, churches and museums.

Inverness is an easy 30 minutes drive away.

Beautiful cottage in a lovely, quiet spot.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week touring Scotland from our homebase at Oystercatcher's Cottage. The cottage was clean and tidy, well appointed and held no surprises. The view from the porch was fabulous! And we really appreciated the supply of local tourism brochures -- they were helpful in planning our adventures! Should we return to this part of Scotland, we'd love to book the cottage for another stay.

Oystercatcher Cottage, near Invergordon

  • 4 of 5

Warm and comfortable rooms in a modernised cottage very near the shore with views over the Firth (and parked oil rigs!) Excellent base for showing our Kiwi friends the best of Scotland.

Very comfortable little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 people and each 2 had a separate room with a connecting bathroom. Kitchen is fully decorated and everything was really clean. The landlord was really nice and you could call him at any time. We arrived on Sunday and he did leave us a "Welcome Box" with some snacks, cereal, cheese and some toast. It was really nice and comfortable and we can only recommend it to everybody.

cool view on the bay and rather quiet as well even though it is right on the street, low traffic anyways out there.

the house is in great shape, clean and well equipped with everything you need for self catering.

we may come back if time permits :)

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage. Very clean and great to be opposite the beach. The owner was very helpful before we arrived and answers emails quickly. We were only there two nights but the area has lots to do. Dunrobin Castle is worth a visit and we saw seals too.
