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.

Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to the cottage. Home from home with all the facilities you need. We stayed in the cottage when the weather was very cold but the cottage is lovely and cosy. Close to all facilities and the view from the cottage is stunning. The owner, Graham is always prompt with his communication . Would highly recommend the cottage. Hopefully, we will return again next year!

loved it every time

  • 5 of 5

As this was the second time in the cottage, it is still one of the best holiday homes we ever had been. This time it was with our family from India and they loved the cottage, the view and everything to appreciate the Scottish highlands. Would recommend this to everyone who is looking to book a holiday in highlands. The cottage has got everything and feels like my second home as it is so comfortable and homely.

Everything needed is provided with snacks and basic things like milk ,bread, butter etc in case anybody forgets to get in a hurry.

As always would like to come back and stay here and would recommend it to everyone as well.

All you could ask for in a cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in December 2017, nicely furnished 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom cottage. Great base for touring either northern Scotland (Wick, John O'Groats etc) or south to Inverness and the coast along to Nairn and of course Culloden. As well as visiting family we revisited childhood memories (our father was born in Rafford and lived both on the Black Isle and Forres), which was great.

There was a nice welcome basket left for us along with a cupboard full of "essentials" and although we did not need to contact Graham, the owner, he had sent me a nice e mail with contact numbers before we arrived.

Although there was only 3 of us, it would be suitable for up to 6 adults. Highly recommended.
