Nairn is a small seaside town on the Moray Firth Coast of Scotland, just 16 miles away from Inverness.

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.

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.

The location was great , the house was tidy and had everything you could ask for . Had a lovely time with my family will definitely come again and recommend everyone. One of my best holidays I would say . The home owner is great and helped us promptly with everything we asked , perfect place for a holiday.

It was lovely to sit and have breakfast watching the beautiful red squirrels outside and to return in the evenings to light a roaring log fire. Jon and Diana were lovely, thoughtful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a peaceful, relaxing break.
