A lovely holiday cottage in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is ideal for a break with family or friends. Lovely, well-equipped kitchen; comfortable sitting room and clean, comfortable bedrooms. Lovely patio out the back. Ideal for a break beside the sea.

New Year at Avoch

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice but quiet New Year in the cottage at Margaret Street.

The cottage was very comfortable and warm despite the time of the year. The kitchen is very well fitted out although we did have a small issue with the hot tap on our last day but with the help of a neighbour , it was sorted quickly and a note left for the owner.

We had enjoyable trips to Cromarty , Inverness and Fortrose inc walking the old railway line between Avoch and Fortrose.

The only downside was that the details on the Gael website said that Free WiFi was available in the cottage but , in fact , there wasn't any WiFi, Although not a great issue it would have been nice to have it as additional convenience.

A perfect country cottage

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation was my favourite on a 4 week trip from Australia.

The cottage was clean, well cared for & provided everything we needed including wood for a cosy fire. The location was a perfect country village... great food at the pub & a brilliant fish & chip shop for a takeaway meal. It was a short drive to Inverness & a couple of hours to the Isle of Skye. I enjoyed the fact that there was no WiFi!!!!

The host was very helpful . All in all I'd stay there again.

Autumn break ...

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our week in Margaret Street cottage. Cottage was delightful, very well equipped, clean and warm. Ideal location for walking with our two dogs both locally in Avoch and only 5 minutes drive to the beach at Fortrose and Rosemarkie. Will almost certainly be back in the Spring.

2nd visit to Margaret street

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit to this cottage, everything you require for a comfortable stay is provided.

Had the opportunity to use the wood burner in the evening, plenty of sticks and logs available.

The back garden is a sun trap, we were lucky enough to have breakfast outside and also to sit and enjoy the last of the sun at the end of the day.

Would definitely recommend, quite sure we will be back.

Great location, real value for money.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage, recently decorated to a good standard in an excellent location. Lovely little coastal village with good Chinese and Indian takeaways, with an excellent fish and chip shop further down. There is also a small Co Op on the Main Street, just up from the pub, which serves good food Monday to Saturday.

However...

No wifi was a real negative, particularly as you have to go outside to get a mobile phone signal.

Also did not like not having full control of the heating and hot water, we are not children.

If those two points were rectified I would definitely go back.

Car: recommended

Travelling north on the A9, cross the Kessock Bridge and continue on the A9 for approximately 3 miles. Turn right at the sign for ‘Black Isle, Munlochy’. Drive through Munlochy, turning right at the T junction when you leave the village and follow the signs for Avoch. Drive through Avoch and turn right shortly after the convenience store onto Margaret Street – the cottage, no 17, is the 3rd on the right.
