Discover the captivating sights of the Moray Firth with holiday cottages in Nairn

Nairn is a small seaside town on the Moray Firth Coast of Scotland, just 16 miles away from Inverness. It has been a popular tourist destination since Victorian times and is famed for its beaches, walking routes, delightful views of the Morary Firth and golfing. The town also boasts splendid cuisine and provides the perfect base for exploring the Highlands and surrounding Lochs.

HomeAway has a number of holiday cottages in Nairn available for long or short stays. With families and pets welcomed in many, the emphasis has been on creating a home away from home. Cosy lounges with large comfortable sofas and well equipped kitchens make these the ideal base from which to explore the many delights of Nairn. Many of the cottages feature modern appliances such as gas ovens, microwaves, laundry facilities, dishwashers and DVD players whilst many bathrooms have showers as well as bathtubs. Gardens and on-site parking is also offered in plentiful supply.

Although Nairn is the ideal base for exploring the land and sea, Scotland has a great many attractions and sites which make it the ideal holiday location. From self catering cottages in Bute there is the opportunity to discover this beautiful town famed for its gardens and architecture, whilst holiday cottages in the East Neuk of Fife are the ideal base from which to discover some of the best fishing in Scotland.

Things to do

Golf: Nairn has long been considered as the home of golf. In fact, it is officially recognised as a centre of golfing excellence, with the Nairn Golf Club and the Nairn Dunbar Golf Club both being 18 hole championship courses. Both have hosted a number of professional tournaments and are open to visitors. In addition, within a 60 mile radius of holiday cottages in Nairn, there are 40 golf courses to choose from.

Fishing: People travel for miles to experience Scottish fishing, and Nairn has a wealth of choice. The Geddes Trout and Course Fishery is in extremely close proximity to the holiday bungalows in Nairn, whilst the Achagour Trout Fishery is also local. In addition, the River Nairn is popular with locals and just a few miles away are the renowned shores of Loch Ness.

Local attractions: Nairn holiday cottages make a fantastic base for visiting the many local attractions and places of interest. Within driving distance is Fort George, Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Strathspey Steam Railway, Urquart Casle and Dunrobin Castle.

Dolphin watching: The Moray Firth is home to dolphins, harbour porpoises and minke whales. Although there are no guarantees of seeing these majestic creatures, there are local sites (such as Fort George) where spotting them is more likely, and many river cruises and boat trips where visitors have the opportunity of spotting them in their natural habitat.

Outdoor activities: The Highlands, the River and the many surrounding Lochs make Nairn the ideal base for those seeking a wild adventure. Water based sports such as canoeing, white water rafting and windsurfing are in plentiful supply but for those who prefer to stay on dry land, there are a number of operators offering activities such as paintballing, canyoning, bungee jumping and cliff jumping.

Weather

Like many places in Scotland, Nairn enjoys a mild, wet climate. November to February are considered the winter months and the temperature rarely rises above 6°C with lows of 0.5°C being common. During these months an average of 11 days rain per 30 is likely. The Spring months of April, May and June are the driest with an average of nine days rain per month, whilst July and August are traditionally the hottest months where temperatures up to 18°C are relatively common. Although the days of rainfall might sound high, the actual amount falling is quite low compared to other places in Scotland and an average of 60mm of rain per month is the typical trend.

Travel

Travel to Nairn by car is relatively simple. The A9 from Stirling is a direct road to the town and parking is plentiful. Visitors wishing to approach by public transport can fly to Inverness Airport (INV). Although there is a taxi service into the town, these must be booked in advance as there is no taxi rank at the airport. Meanwhile, Nairn has its own railway station and services are frequent.

The location is great with views on the ocean from all windows ! I would have wished I could have stayed longer.A must see is the mermaid of the north at sunset ! ( in walking distance ) I recommend the cottage to anyone who wants to relax and see that part of the highlands. Did I mention the huge kitchen ? and the recliner seats ? everything is just perfect...Thank you Christel fro everything
