Both the double and twin bedrooms have en-suite facilities with under floor heating and heated towel rails. Natural wood and co-ordinating furnishings feature throughout. An open plan living area has a wood burning stove; a well equipped kitchen with integrated dishwasher, fridge, oven and hob; a dining area; and lounge. A gallery accessed by a pine staircase overlooks the lounge and provides a quiet area, with CD, radio, and lots of reference books and tourist information.

Graded 5* with VisitScotland, it also holds a Silver Green Tourism award, and has solar PV cells, which generate free electricity on sunny days. Highland cattle, which are bred on the croft, graze peacefully in the adjacent fields. There is a patio area, and large garden with lovely views across open countryside to Ben Wyvis.

Only 5 miles from Inverness, the thriving capital of the Highlands, the cottage is ideally situated to explore the Black Isle, the northern Highlands, Skye and the west coast, and all the Moray Firth area. The cottage is peacefully situated to enjoy the flora and fauna of the local area, with Red Kytes soaring from nearby woodland, and dolphins playing off Chanonry Point just 8 miles away.

For golfers, there are 10 courses within easy reach, including Castle Stuart, Royal Dornoch, Tain, and Nairn -all championship courses, and for skiers, the Cairngorms are just 45 minutes away. There are pleasant walks from the cottage, and the Black Isle has a network of footpaths and cycle tracks.

The Scottish Highlands region

Inverness & Northern Highlands.

Inverness, the Highland capital is at the mouth of the river Ness, and has all the facilities of a modern, fast growing city.

The Northern Highlands is a beautiful and inspiring region of ancient landscapes and fascinating history; from magnificent mountains to grand sea lochs and gorgeous beaches you will find it all here. Discover eye-catching wildlife, a rich and vibrant culture, iconic castles, and a never ending list of amazing outdoor activities, all set against world renowned landscapes such as Ben Nevis, and Loch Ness.

The Black Isle

The Black Isle is a fertile peninsular, joined by a bridge to Inverness, and bordered by the Moray, Cromarty, and Beauly Firths. It is so named because of its rich, dark, agricultural land and mild climate.

The Black Isle has many picturesque villages reflecting its heritage of fishing, and agriculture. Fortrose has a ruined cathedral, a golf course, and from its lighthouse the famous school of Moray Firth dolphins can be seen daily passing its headland. Avoch is a conservation fishing village, with a 19th century harbour, and quaint fisherman's cottages. Cromarty, a fishing village (once an important sea port) stands at the head of the peninsular, which it guards with its' "Sutors". Rosemarkie has a superb sandy beach set in a lovely bay surrounded by attractive rocks, and cliffs.

A network of walking and cycle trails on the Black Isle pass through open moorland, forests, and along shores with wonderful views, and gives you the opportunity to view the diverse wild life of the area.
