Overview

About the property

3 bedroom cottage close to beach

If you are looking for a holiday in the Scottish Highlands with a touch of luxury then look no further..... The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and has 3 bedrooms and 3 shower rooms, 2 of which are en-suite. It is ideally suited to families of all ages.

The cottage is situated in the rural Easter Ross village of Saltburn, by the shores of the Cromarty Firth. From the front there are splendid open views towards the Black Isle. It's on the shoreline of the Cromarty Firth that a variety of wildlife can often be seen and a walk along the beach will always be interesting.

The cottage is an ideal base to visit the many whisky distilleries and castles in the area. Only a few miles away is the Balnagown estate which has good opportunities to explore the outdoors with dedicated cycling and walking routes. There are good golf courses in the local area which are set in some wonderful scenery.

The Royal Burgh of Tain is 10 minutes drive away. This quaint small town is steeped in local history dating back a thousand years. Here you can walk down the narrow streets and visit some of the old buildings, churches and museums.

Inverness is an easy 30 minutes drive away.

Convenient Location - Cute Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was quite nice and convenient to everything we needed. The only downside really is the houses are very close to each other and your view in the bay is of oil rigs. You are right across the street from the water - so we enjoyed an early morning stroll and gathered sea glass and shells! Owner was responsive.

An Awesome Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this beautiful cottage. The outside seemed ordinary but the interior was great. The bedrooms were comfortable and the washrooms nicely set up. The kitchen was always bright because of the skylights. We also appreciated the welcome package and the well equipped kitchen made it easy to prepare a few meals. The view was unique from the enclosed front porch, we enjoyed watching the boats, seeing the oil rigs and even a cruise ship. We were able to walk on the beach but it was too cool to get into the water. We travelled out from here as it is central enough to Inverness and Loch Ness as well as some picturesque towns to the north and to the west. It was an ideal spot for the 5 in our group.

Invergordon home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here three nights and throughly enjoyed this home! It was very comfortable, cozy and well stocked. We would absolutely stay here again if we come back to the highlands. The only thing that would be helpful is having a dryer, other than that no complaints at all.

Wonderful Cottage in Saltburn

  • 5 of 5

This is a three bedroom, three bath cottage on Saltburn Rd in Saltburn, Scotland. The front of the house faces the beach on Cromarty Firth. The back has a small garden area. The house is nicely laid out with two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, one bedroom and one bathroom downstairs, a large living room and large kitchen/dining area.

If you are visiting the Inverness area, do not be put off by the distance from Inverness proper. It is an easy 20-30 minute drive into the city.

Beds and bedding are of good quality and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped and functional. Water pressure was good and there was plenty of hot water. Bath linens were of good quality. We found the neighborhood to be very quiet and there is very little traffic along Saltburn Rd. the host was very easy to work with. We experienced no problems with the cottage, and would highly recommend.
