Location description from owner

The Scotland 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.

“Oyster Catcher Cottage made our trip even more beautiful...”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

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.

“Comfy, well equpped cottage”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2013

Excellent cottage, well placed to explore the Highlands, particularly Inverness and area. Plenty of room, well furnished and great instructions for all appliances etc.

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

Reviewed 15 Nov 2012

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”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2012

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
