Why Jenny and John Carruthers chose Inverness
We liked the traditional architecture of the house and its position so close to the beach.

Cozy cottage, great hosts. Perfect location for many walks to explore the Black Isle area.
Most splendid retreat.
Great cosy, comfortable, peaceful cottage to relax in. Very friendly, welcoming hosts. Meticulously clean, everything you need. Superb base for touring the Black Isle and surroundings. I would not hesitate in returning. Lovely welcome basket, especially the tasty homemade shortbread. Went down a treat with my whisky each night! Described as small - no need - it was just perfect for the two of us. Loved the tide times & weather forecast on the notice board, most helpful.
Curlew Cottage is situated between the villages of Fortrose and Rosemarkie, very close to the beach and links golf course. Chanonry Point, a mile away, is known as the best place in Europe for spotting dolphins from the shore and boat trips are available as well from neighbouring villages. The Black Isle is an ideal destination for birdwatchers, walkers and golfers with beautiful views and historic places of interest. It is accessed from Inverness across the Kessock Bridge and features forests and fertile, rolling countryside and seaside villages. Driving is still a pleasure in this part of the world and the most of the Highlands are within easy reach in a day trip. Holidaymakers should not miss visiting the ancient village of Cromarty, 10 miles away. The Black Isle will appeal to visitors who appreciate nature and the outdoors and are looking for a peaceful holiday in lovely surroundings and yet near to the city of Inverness with its excellent facilities, including Eden Court Theatre.
