About Allan or Shona Macdonald
I have lived in the area most of my life and have lived in my own house which is adjacent but detached from Osprey Cottage for more than 30 years. I am a self employed joiner and work locally.
Allan or Shona Macdonald purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Allan or Shona Macdonald chose Delny
The cottage was originally a substantial stone outbuilding and at the time there were very few self catering cottages in the local area. As we have always chosen self catering holidays we decided to give it a go and renovate and extend the cottage to make it what it is today.

A beautiful cottage. Extremely comfortable and well equipped, a real home from home. The owners thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. The welcome pack of goodies was much appreciated. Good location to explore the NC 500 and all the beauty of the highlands. Only given 4 stars on location as the bedroom of the cottage is adjacent to a busy B road and there is a lot of road noise, which isn't conducive for sleeping. There isn't any wifi at the cottage, although network signal is good if you have mobile data.
A comfy and stylish cottage.It was very well equipped with lots of thoughtful extras- maps books and binoculars . As wildlife watchers the bird hide at the end of the garden was a bonus. There are lots of places within easy reach of the property making it a good base for a holiday.
The quality and style of this property was impressive. It was comfortable and extremely well-equipped. There were also generous provisions.
The position is convenient for exploring the Black Isle and the North East coast and not far from shops in Invergordon. We also loved the bird hide and the access to the shoreline with a great view over the water.
Downside: The noise from the road was noticeable from the bedroom. Visibility was difficulty when pulling out. Parking was under trees where birds roosted at night and we had to go to jet wash the car every day.
A great holiday in a fabulous cottage.
The cottage was well prepared for our arrival and everything went well. We found a welcome pack on arrival which was very much appreciated after a rather long drive. Even the weather co-operated (better than in other parts of UK!!!
Great for 2 people
Literally, a home from home... Transport is a necessity as it is 3 to 6 miles from from the shopping.... No proper access to WiFi.
