Location description from owner

The Ross and Cromarty region

The Scottish Highlands are renowned for beautiful scenery, wildlife, historic monuments and lots of weather! Mountains, rivers, lochs, beaches, sea cliffs - the highlands have all in abundance. But the Highlands aren't just for looking at - try some of the outdoor activities - from mountain biking to paint-balling, there's something for everyone. With numerous Castles, Whisky Distilleries, Museums, Art Galleries and cafes, there's always something to do on the rainy days too.

Rosemarkie

The Black Isle is in fact a peninsula and is slightly off the beaten tourist track a short distance from the main A9 just north of Inverness. The historic villages along the coast of the peninsula each have their own character with farming and fishing traditionally supporting the thriving communities. Although Rosemarkie has grown over the years the main street has changed little in the last hundred years.

The village still supports a small grocers shop, a butcher and two restaurants. In Fortrose, just a mile away there is a larger selection of shops and amenities including a Sports Centre. Pictish Culture is featured in The Groam House Museum in Rosemarkie whereas Cromarty, to the East, has both Hugh Millers cottage and The Cromarty Courthouse Museum. In Fortrose the ancient ruins of the There are a number of Art and Craft Galleries in the area along with jewellery and antique shops.

The Fortrose and Rosemarkie18 hole golf course, where you can play and watch for dolphins is about 500 metres away from the Cottage.Other local outdoor activities available include Mountain bike trails at Learnie - 16 km of high quality trails for all skill levels. In addition the Black Isle has a network of forest tracks and small roads, great for mountain bikes and road bikes alike with paintballing, and quadbiking also available locally.

For wildlife enthusiasts there is a Dolphin and Seal Centre, birdwatching and a small Wildlife Park. Red kites have been re-introduced in the area and are a common sight hovering above the roads and fields.

Local Events include the Annual Black Isle Show, held a few miles from Rosemarkie in Muir-of-Ord, this traditional farming event is held on the first Thursday in August, the huge variety of events and stalls means there is something for everyone. August is also the month when local people are permitted to net salmon off the beach in Rosemarkie. The rights to this activity have been handed down through local families for generations.

“Wow! An exceptional cottage, excellent location - home from home.”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2013

We travel to Scotland every other year, to stay for Christmas and New Year - this was by far the best cottage we have stayed in. Everything you needed was there, plus little extras. The cottage is easy to find, in a fantastic location, 2 minute walk to Rosemarkie beach and only a 20 minute drive into the town of Inverness. Would definately recommend this cottage.

“You've thought of everything!!”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2012

What an unbelievably great experience staying in this cottage was! It was extremely clean and well-organized, and the kitchen is lovely and there were many little extras included. The bed was very comfortable and cozy as well. Both Rosemarkie and Fortrose Beaches were lovely to walk along, even in January, and the Fairy Glen is not to be missed. We also enjoyed a lovely meal and ambiance at The Plough, the local pub. We'll definitely be booking this cottage again next time we're in the area!

“Brilliant”
