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.

Further details outdoors

Garden with patio and garden furniture. There is ample parking on the wide pavement right in front off the house. More cars can be parked adjacent to the house.

The Scottish Highlands region

There is a good chip shop close at hand (1.5 miles away), 'Carols' in nearby Invergordon just off the main street, which is recommended. The food shops are open to 10pm every night with the main supermarket 'CO-OP' and 'SPAR' open until 10pm.

They are located in Invergordon which is 1.5 miles drive away. This can be walked but would take about 35 minutes walk each way. Most other shops in Inverdordon shut at around 6pm.

Saltburn

The towns of Alness and Invergordon are within a few miles of the cottage have plenty to offer in the way of shops, coffee shops and restaurants. There is plenty lovely scenery to enjoy in the area with Fyrish hill walk 6 miles drive. There are many forest tracks nearby and offer good locations for mountain biking, walking. There is plenty off fishing to be had in the area with the River Averon 5 miles away.

Mountain biking is popular sport in the highlands. There are bike tracks in Fort William and Laggen. Both of these locations are approximately 1.5 hours drive away from the cottage. There is also good mountain biking terrain around the Aviemore and Speyside area (1 hour drive) where there is hire shops and instruction.

Alternately Inverness and Dingwall are within 35 minutes drive and have shops and cinemas and a greater selection of restaurants which open late.

"Oyster Catcher Cottage made our trip even more beautiful..."

Oyster Catcher Cottage has a very lovley location and is close to local amenities if you have a car. The cottage itself was our home away from home for the 3 nights that we stayed there. It is well equipped, very neat and tidy and well lit. The living room has a good sized tv and dvd's for the days when the weather does not permit long outdoor excursions. All the rooms are a good size and very tastefully furnished. We loved the time that we spend there. There was a problem with the flush in the toilet in the twin bedroom but it did not really have impact on us as we were a small group of only 3 people and the other toilets worked fine. We loved our stay in the Oyster Catcher cottage and wish we had spend more time. Will be going back again for sure.

"This cottage welcomes you with open arms and holds you there until you leave."

A fabulous find, it is warm and inviting and has a fantastic view that changes with the tide and the weather. It is very cosy but also quite spacious so it feels more like a new build inside. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area but you can happily sit and do nothing for hours there without feeling like you've wasted time.

"Home away from home"

We spent three nights at the cottage and wished we could have stayed longer. We spent 4 weeks travelling around Scotland staying in a variety of B&B's and self contained accommodation. Oyster Catcher cottage was definitely the most comfortable by far with all the "mod cons" we like to have but don't necessarily get in other accommodation. The cottage is in a very quite location with views across the firth and a short drive to the local high street. The external appearance is underwhelming, but wait 'til you get inside - it's wonderful. Very modern and clean. It definitely feels more like a home than a short term let. The only (very mild) disappointment for us was the water pressure in the shower which was a bit too low. This has not put us off from considering a much longer stay next year (hopefully).

Many thanks for your wonderful review. I am sorry that the hot water was not up to the required pressure. Have looked into it and found that the thermostat on the water cylinder was not turned up enough. Problem sorted now. You are both very welcome to come and stay at Oystercatcher Cottage again, All the best, Graham
