Bright Water Cottage is located in the small coastal village of Rockfield (near the larger village of Portmahomack) right on the shore of the Moray Firth itself, literally within touching distance of the sea! A large sunny porch enables comfortable dining for up to 6 people with uninterrupted ocean views. There is private parking directly outside the front of the cottage for up to 4 cars. A small, private seaside front garden affords uninterrupted views across the Moray Firth, with an 8 seat picnic table for al fresco dining and an additional 3 seat garden bench. Centrally heated and double glazed throughout with a small wood burning stove in the front room, the cottage provides a cosy retreat. The modern kitchen is equipped with an 8 ring gas hob, double oven, large upright fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and LCD TV. There is also a small breakfast bar with additional seating for 3. There is one double bedroom with Queensize bed downstairs, fitted with a double built in wardrobe and useful airing cupboard. There is an adjoining downstairs WC. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one with a Queensize bed and the other with two good size single beds. Both upstairs bedrooms have sea views, as does the family bathroom which has an oversized bath, shower, WC and large heated towel rack. All bedrooms have LCD TVs. Flooring is solid wood throughout apart from the kitchen and porch areas which are tiled and therefore suitable for dogs. There is complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the entire cottage. To the rear is a sunny garden with a wooden chalet and large decking, ideal for BBQs and general relaxing. Depending on the time of year, bird and wildlife abounds. The dolphins are regularly seen all year round patrolling up and down the Moray Firth and occasionally, if you are eagle eyed, an otter or two!

Immaculately presented house with breathtaking views
Ideal base for travel in and around the area. House has everything you could need (and more). A very warm welcome from owners on arrival. Views from dining room are spectacular. Rooms are spacious, bright and airy. We had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend booking this property.

The house is in a prime location right on the waters edge, Rockfield is a good base for touring out to other places to visit. The house itself is fantastic, clean, tidy and very well equipped. The owners live next door and are friendly and on hand of you need anything.
Retreat by the Sea
We had the most amazing stay here, and we will be back. A cottage by the sea which has every amenity.You get a beautiful kitchen with quality items to create your own culinary masterpiece, a wood fireplace in the front room to enjoy, and a fantastic view of the North Sea while dining. The sea view is unforgettable! Wifi is great. Drinking water is very pure and water pressure is perfect. This is a remote setting, but still only minutes away from shopping in Tain (Made in Tain is a perfect place to buy gifts). Check out the local history in Portmahomack's Tarbat Discovery Centre and the Tain museum... or drive north and see Dunrobin castle, Wick and John O'Groats.This is a nice location to use as a base to see the Highlands. Richard and family are absolutely great. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and given a tour of the cottage. We really appreciate the conversations and their genuine kindness.
Heaven by the sea.
Very warn welcome from the owners, after enough time to unpack, perfect timing. Cottage wants for nothing, kitchen exceptionally well equipped, except for a teapot :) Quality bed linen and towels. Peaceful location with a superb outlook. Much appreciated welcome pack. Certainly recommend the cottage. Hope to return, someday.
