Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage with beautiful sea view

Situated on the shores of the Cromarty Firth with stunning views to the Black Isle our cottage sleeps six comfortably and can accommodate up to eight.

The cottage is deceptively spacious (total floor area of 129 square metres) . On the ground floor there is a roomy lounge with archway to a large kitchen/diner, bathroom with separate shower and one family room with double and single bed.

On the first floor there is a shower room between one roomy double bedroom and another family room with double and single bed.

There is also a small elevated garden area behind the cottage.

Off road parking can accommodate three cars.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Saltburn is a small village on the outskirts of Invergordon and is an ideal situation for touring the Highlands with easy access to superb beaches, forests, hill walking, golf, cycling, fishing, etc. There are at least six 18 hole golf courses within an hour's drive, including Royal Dornoch, so perfect location for a golfing holiday!

Invergordon, 1½ miles away is a cruise liner destination, in fact some liners tie up at Saltburn pier when there are more than 2 liners on one day. It also has stunning murals on gables all over the town and boasts a sports centre with leisure pool, naval museum, an 18 hole golf course and a bowling green. A choice of restaurants and take-aways cater for most tastes.

Only a few miles away is the Balnagown estate which has good opportunities to explore the outdoors with dedicated cycling and walking routes.

The Black Isle, which is viewed from your cottage's windows is really a peninsula and is well worth a visit with lots of quaint villages. Cromarty Courthouse Museum, housed in an original court building of 1773, portrays the life of an old Scots burgh (of which Cromarty is a fine example). Hugh Miller's Cottage, recalling the life of the locally-born geologist and church-man, is also here.

The Black Isle Wildlife and Country Park has a good selection of animals (some of which can be hand fed by children).

There are distilleries to visit at Alness, Muir of Ord and Tain.

Tain through Time explores the very different story of Tain, (Scotland's oldest Royal burgh) formerly an important place of pilgrimage.

Other places of interest include the Highland Museum of Childhood at Strathpeffer and the Groam House Museum at Rosemarkie which takes a Pictish theme, as does the Tarbat Discovery Centre at Portmahomack, based on the findings of an internationally important archaeological dig.

At Chanonry Point in Rosemarkie dolphin spotting is a popular attraction and dolphin tours can be booked at various locations.

Balintore, Portmahomock and Dornoch (all within an hour's drive)have superb beaches.

Beyond the Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer, Ullapool is a small fishing village on the rugged west coast which is very popular.

About Noreen Kelman

I grew up and worked in Invergordon just a mile along the road from Saltburn. When my husband and I retired from our shop in Invergordon we decided to move to Saltburn. We live just along the road from "Kinleith".

Noreen Kelman purchased this house in 2012

Why Noreen Kelman chose Invergordon

The cottage is deceptively large with a total floor area of 129 square metres, is well laid out and has a small elevated garden.

What makes this house unique

The Cromarty Firth seen from every room in the cottage looks out to the Black Isle which is really a peninsula, so the views are always changing.

A fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Noreen was very accommodating. She kindly put many food items in the house.

The 3 bedrooms are large and two have a single and double bed which is unusual.

We will definitely stay again.

Lovely cottage, a real home from home.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful short break we had in Inverness and this cottage was the perfect base for my family. The cottage has everything you need for a nice relaxing stay and Noreen the owner made sure we were well stocked with a little welcome basket of essentials when we arrived. Beautiful views from every bedroom and the cottage was warm and cosy - just the thing for Autumn nights. We had some family visit us for the day whilst we were there, which then made ten of us, and the living area was perfect for everyone to break off into groups (teenagers playing cards at the table, smaller kids watching a film and the grown ups in the kitchen cooking). It's a beautifull little cottage - a lovely base for exploring and we can't wait to return!

Nice house to go around HighLands in Scotland

  • 5 of 5

Hello

We went with friends and our children (family tourism) to the house of Noreen Kelman in Invergordon. The owner greeted us very politely and showed us the house and how to use all things from the house. The house is very nice, it was very clean, with sea views, in a very nice area to be able to move around the Highlands. We were very comfortable.

So I recommend it

Cosy and clean cottage with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this cosy and clean cottage with amazing view over the sea. The bedrooms are large with good beds. The kitchen is well equipped, so it is easy to cook dinner for a family. The owner is most helpful and gives good advice about trips too. There are lots of both culture and nature to enjoy in the area. If we come back to the Scottish Highland, we would like to stay in this cottage again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. The cottage is deceptively large. From the outside it looks quite small. It is ideal for family reunions and we try to keep it as homely as possible.

Fabulous house for our family

  • 5 of 5

5 adults stayed one week in this 3 bed, 2 bath home. Plenty of space. Well stocked and clean. Perfect location for exploring Culloden, Ullapool, Dornoch and surrounding areas. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely and the starter pack of tea, coffee, milk, cereal and biscuits was a great touch. View of beach and cruise ships out the front windows was an added bonus.Thank you Noreen. I can only hope we can return.

Best of our trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Invergordon right in the middle of our trip. We had had a very bad experience with one of our accommodations and had to leave. The second accomodation was lovely, but Noreen's cottage in Saltburn was the niceset of all the places we stayed on our trip.

Right across from the water, I felt comfortable allowing my 13-year old grandson to go walk along the water by himself. My son and his girlfriend enjoyed walking along the beach and the nature walk. Even though the road was just outside, it was nice and quiet inside.

It was a great location for all the exploring we wanted to do.

Thank you Noreen, for a wonderful stay.
