About the property

Bay Farm Cottages

Bay Farm self catering holiday cottages were built on the site of the old Bay Farm steading in 2001. In quiet, rural surroundings they are situated just above the shore of Munlochy Bay SSSI, in the sheltered south east area of Scotland's Black Isle. The cottages are south facing, with lovely sea views across the bay to the forested hills and farmland on the south shore, with the mountains of Strathconon in the distance. The cottages are constructed to modern building standards, with traditional exteriors, and are comfortably furnished to a high standard and well equipped. The two cottages are built to the same high standard, and offer the same level of accommodation and equipment, the only difference being the colour schemes. Both cottages sleep four and offer good disabled access, complying with modern standards and regulations, making them wheelchair-friendly both inside and out. Weekly bookings are from Saturday to Saturday and weekly rates are from £430 to £625 depending on season.

Magnifique location dans un coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un super séjour dans cette location trés bien équipée et trés propre avec une superbe vue sur la baie et sur les phoques que nous apercevions à chaque marée basse. Nous avons également apprécié le panier composé offert à l'arrivée.

Les chambres sont trés spacieuses avec beaucoup de rangement et une salle de bain particulière pour chacune. Il y a un grand salon et une cuisine américaine trés bien équipée. C'est vraiment trés spacieux. Il ya également une belle mezzanine avec vue sur la baie. L'environnement est trés calme (adepte de la ville et de ses animations s'abstenir). Nous avons eu le plaisir de voir se promener des chévres autour du gîte. La terrasse est trés agréable mais malheureusement nous n'avons pas pu vraiment en profiter, la météo n'étant pas trés propice.

Bay Farm self catering holiday cottages are situated just above the shore of Munlochy Bay SSSI in the sheltered south east area of Scotland's Black Isle, within three miles of the attractive fishing village of Avoch. As well as being an ideal base for touring the unspoiled beauty spots and attractions of the Black Isle, or the grandeur and wildness of the Northern Highlands, there are many excellent walks in the immediate local area which is rich in bird, animal and plant life, a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers. Inverness a city of culture is 25 minutes drive away, with its trendy bars, contemporary cafes and excellent restaurants. Visit the famous Loch Ness and Culloden Battlefield or explore Sutherland and Caithness and the rugged west coast. Enjoy the beaches of Moray Firth and watch the dolphins, or visit the many castles, distilleries and museums in the area, or simply relax and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity that gives Bay Farm its unique character.
