The Scottish Highlands region

For a real escape from the hustle and bustle of your daily life, you can’t beat the Scottish Highlands and its breathtaking mountains, glens and lochs.

The cottages are located on the south side of the Moray Firth, 20 miles east of Inverness. Located in the rain shadow of the Cairngorm mountain range to the south and the west Highlands gives a mostly mild and dry climate throughout the year.

The farm lane winds around surrounding fields to mature woodland and a free guided tour is available by the friendly farmer. Find out about growing crops, rearing cattle and what a ‘floppy lug’ can tell you. For all budding farmers no tour would be complete without a photo opportunity by the big red Massey Ferguson tractor. Hear also about the legend of the Witch’s Stone and the story of the minister’s wife’s bloomers!


The great location, rural yet only 2 miles from the main A96, makes Broomton Farm Cottages an ideal base for touring. There are a wide variety of attractions within easy reach – from beaches at Nairn, Findhorn and Roseisle to castles, golf courses, craft shops, distilleries, and the capital of the Scottish Highlands , Inverness, only 20 miles away.

"What a find!"

There is always a certain concern when booking holiday accommodation on-line. Pre-holiday email communication with the owner, David Ker, helped to allay our fears and arrival confirmed our first-impression of Firth View cottage. It is set in an idyllic spot with great views on three sides and pine forest opposite. The cottage itself is equipped to the highest standard and has everything required for easy living. Great care has obviously been taken to ensure that all needs are answered. There is the added bonus of the owner, David Ker, willingly giving a tour of the farm. This he does with humour and interesting anecdotes of the local area. The cottage is ideally situated to access many local areas and sights, all of which are described on the website. We had planned to stay for one week, with the option of part of the second. We stayed for two and were still very reluctant to leave! Well-worth a return visit which we hope to do!

"A home from home."

As always when we have visited Scotland the people and service we experienced have been exceptional. In truth, everyone was very helpful. Broomtom Cottages is just secluded enough to feel a real sense of tranquility.The part I found difficult was having to leave. David was very attentive and did everything possible to make all of us feel welcome. The cottage itself was comfortable and well equipped. As for amenities, Nairn is quite close which is a very nice town,with a beach for the children. There is also a Sainsbury before Nairn. There were to many highlights to list them all. I do feel I should draw attention to the farm tour that David provided, it never ceases to amaze me how dependent we all are on nature and how much of a science farming is. I feel it is fair to say we had a great time and would not hesitate to go back.

"Near perfect"

Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting with wonderful views across the rolling Morayshire countryside to the Black Isle. This was a haven of tranquillity and a great base for exploring the charming towns, villages and places of interest along the Moray Firth coastline, Inverness and the Eastern Highlands and the intoxicating delights of Speyside's Malt Whisky Trail - something for everyone! The cottage was nicely decorated, very well equipped and immaculately clean, with the combination of very comfortable beds and countryside quiet being the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of city life. The attention to detail was obvious throughout. The neat garden was edged with attractive traditional dry stane dyking and monoblock driveway parking - no mud and stones! - and there was a garden BBQ and handy clothes drying green. WiFi service was also really useful. The owners couldn't have been more helpful both before and during our stay, providing information on everything from recommendations on local places to eat to giving an insight to farming life for we curious urbanites. The farm tour was illuminating and the photo opportunity with the tractors for our four-year-old was much appreciated! There were only a couple of things to be aware of. Firstly, we'd prefer there was a proper shower facility to the bath with handheld shower attachment. Also the cottage is all-electric and electricity is not included in the hire price (a detail I hadn't spotted on the website despite it being clearly mentioned) so you may have to keep an eye on the meter..... That said, it really was a marvellously relaxing stay, with easy access to Nairn and Forres and all their facilities including a very handy Sainsbury's (with petrol station) on the main A96 outskirts of Nairn. And from the remarks in the Visitor's Book many others share our view. Well done to Mr and Mrs Ker for their efforts - lang may yer lum reek!

"Cosy farm cottage- perfect base for exploring Moray"

We were warmly welcomed by the owner David Ker and everything clearly explained. Nice touches were the flowers and biscuits on arrival. The cottage was spotless, and very well appointed. It's location was perfect for us to explore the Moray area- highlights included Culbin Forest walks, Logie Steading, the factory tour at Johnstons of Elgin, and the gardens at Cawdor Castle. We also enjoyed Brodie Castle, and Knockando Woollen Mill. The nearby beaches were great for walks, and we found many good eating out places. We ahd a fantastic holiday, and hope to return.

"Peaceful cottage perfectly placed for visiting the area"

Immaculately presented, beautifully appointed, the cottage is a little bit of luxury in peaceful surroundings. Our grandchildren loved the fact that they had the freedom of playing in the woods next to the cottages. We loved the peace and quiet, yet with easy access to the A96. We've booked up for 2012! Looking forward to it immensely.
