Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Rosemarkie - Holmes Cottage

2 bedroom traditional cottage in great location

Situated in the centre of Rosemarkie, Holmes Cottage is an extended traditional 1860s cottage, very comfortable and well equipped, with off- road parking and a long sheltered garden towards the sea.

Just a few minutes walk away is the lovely beach, which extends south west towards Chanonry Point - a great place for watching dolphins.

Golfers can take the challenge of the Fortrose and Rosemarkie links course nearby and many other courses, whilst bird watchers will enjoy the wildlife at Udale Bay. There are pleasant walks to the Fairy Glen waterfall, along the beaches and across the Black Isle. Pony trekking and mountain biking are also possible in the locality.

In Rosemarkie itself, only 100yards away, are the Spar shop with newspapers and the butchers with delicatessen. There is a local pub and along the sea-front is a pleasant bistro.

A wider range of shops can be found in Fortrose, only a mile away. Inverness is about 14 miles away for shopping centres, theatres and large supermarkets.

Holmes Cottage is an ideal base for a relaxing holiday, wandering and exploring the Black Isle or driving further afield to other parts of the Highlands.

Very homely

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Rosemarkie. Enjoyed the house which was very comfortable it was obviously a home not just a holiday house. There was plenty to see and do. We were very lucky to see dolphins. Loved the beach and beach cafe.

A pleasant and very clean cottage, situated in what is in my opinion the perfect village, near enough to pub,shop and eateries.

A great location for the beach and amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotlessly clean and very well equiped with a lovely kitchen and bathroom. There is a big garden to the back of the house with a decked seating area. The house has WiFi and even a little office area which is well stocked with leaflets and info. There are two TV areas so good if you go with kids. The stairs turn slightly and only have a banister on one side so not ideal if you are infirm. There is a shop, pub and restaurant a very short distance from the house and a two minute walk takes you to the beautiful beach.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, well appointed property providing great base for exploring Fortrose/Rosemarkie and the wider Black Isle area. Two minute walk from the beach where the dolphins can be seen most days. Recommended.
