You are greeted with a welcome pack plus lots of other extras such as bath robes & bath sheets as well as the usual hand & bath towels. The kitchen is well equiped and leads through to a rear sitting/viewing room with a superb view of the harbour & Cromerty Firth. There is a deceivingly large rear garden overlooking the harbour & a rear exit which takes you out directly opposite the Royal Hotel bar & other eating establishments. The bedrooms are very comfortable & well equiped & although small the bathrooms are adequate for your needs. We found this a very quiet & relaxing place to stay with plenty of local attractions to investigate & splendid walks where you can look for wildlife & dolphins in the Firth..

There are wonderful beaches and beautiful small villages all nearby. Don't expect a metropolis and bright lights! This is a place for getting away, it's a place for wildlife, walking and great sea views. The cottage is well equipped and clean. It has a nice log burner and plenty of wood. Highly recommended for wildlife watchers and walkers.
