Each cottage has two bedrooms and a bathroom with an open plan living space with a small terrace overlooking the vegetable garden and pony paddock.

It is a lovely quiet lane in a rural location and walking distance to the centre of the town and station. A good place to base yourself in order to see the highlands, play golf, walk up mountains and enjoy the the surroundings

What makes this cottage unique

In summer you can pick raspberries from the terrace and enjoy them with you breakfast

Nice compact cottage in good location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in Tain. The cottage is nicely decorated, stylish but cosy. A nice touch was the provision of some groceries on arrival - bread, butter etc. Loved the veg garden at the back, and the view onto pony/horse paddock. A few small negatives...wifi bit weak, sofas not too comfy, fridge didn't seem to work, and bathroom compact. Saying that, would definitely book again if staying in Tain and will recommend to friends.

Liebevolles, gemütliches und sehr ruhiges Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 1 Woche mit 2 Kindern hier verbracht. Sehr gemütliches Cottage in ruhiger Lage aber trotzdem im Herzen der kleinen Stadt Tain.

Viele Einkaufsmöglichkeiten im Ort, Tankstellen vorhanden, Parkplatz ist direkt am Haus.

1 Doppelbett sowie 2 Einzelbetten, großes Wohnzimmer, eine Auswahl an Gesellschaftsspielen und diversen DVDs. Voll ausgestattet, es waren sogar Kaffee, Tee, Waschmittel, Kekse und Spülmaschinentabs vorhanden. Zudem gab es zur Begrüßung ein paar frische Lebensmittel wie Milch, Brot, Eier, Apfelsaft und eine Auswahl einheimischer Käse.Insgesamt fehlte es an nichts.

Für uns idealer Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge sowohl in den Norden als auch in den Süden, Inverness war etwa 30 min Autofahrt entfernt.

Wie haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wiederkommen.

Tain is surrounded by some of Scotland's finest golf courses

The much under rated, Tain course is just a short walk from the cottage. Dornoch, Migdale, Brora and indeed Skibo are all near by.

There are also plenty of wonderful day visits across the highlands for bird watches fisherman and hill walkers.

Although the climate is not usually suitable for sunbathing we have many beautiful uncrowded beaches and occasionally it is warm enough for a dip in the ocean
