'Osprey Cottage' is situated by the shores of the Cromarty Firth, this spacious detached property, adjacent to owners' home, has been renovated and furnished to a high standard. The property is just a few meters from the shoreline. It makes it the ideal place for bird watching. The owners also have a small bird 'hide' available for guests to use with beach access. The many tourist attractions in the area are all within a short drive. Beaches, distilleries, golf courses, castles and RSPB reserves.

The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with slate floor, a well equipped kitchen / dining room with beamed ceiling and slate / oak flooring. Spacious living room, partly open plan with beamed ceiling and oak flooring with an outlook over the Cromarty firth. Double bedroom with 5' bed, beamed ceiling and oak flooring.

Nature and bird watching: The local area is rich in both bird and animal life, the Cromarty Firth is a haven for migrating wildfowl and waders in the spring and autumn. The firth also plays host to bottle-nose dolphins and various dolphin watching trips set sail from Cromarty and Inverness. They can also be viewed from Chanonry Point on the Black Isle. From April to September Ospreys fish along the foreshore of Nigg Bay adjacent to the cottage. The owners also have a small bird hide at the bottom of their garden that you are free to use when you are staying at the cottage.

The RSPB also have birde hides located at Nigg and Udal bays. www.rspb.org.uk/reserves/guide/n/niggbay/index.aspx

Guestbook comments from the owner
Beautiful cottage. Weather was kind to us and we managed to go out every day. Wonderful scenery.

Distilleries warmed us up on the colder days.

Osprey Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
This beautiful cottage in Invergordon area is a "gem". Beautifully decorated, immaculately kept, spacious and very comfortable with everything you need to enjoy your stay, the kitchen is extremely well equipped with instructions for using every appliance. On the shores of the Firth or Cromarty with its own private bird blind for bird lovers. The MacDonald's are very gracious hosts and have provided all the information one needs to enjoy the surrounding areas to the fullest. We especially appreciated the welcoming treats and starters!

A beautiful cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Osprey Cottage for one week. We have been to Scotland many times
and stayed in lovely cottages but we think that Osprey Cottage is the most beautiful one we have stayed in. The cottage is very spacious and every room is beautifully furnished. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard and the walk in shower in the bathroom is absolutely fantastic. It is ideally situated to visit the most northern part of Scotland. We have had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay and even the weather was kind to us. It was our first stay at the cottage and we have already recommended it to our family and friends.
