the chalet was lovely great location.the only complaint was the heating is very poor for winter visitors could maybe do with upgrading, otherwise we had a great time
Lovely week stay at the lodge so close to the beach and nearby Chanonry Point. Sadly, didn't see dolphins this visit but still lovely. Didn't use the car all week, walked to nearby villages and used local busses to get to Inverness & further afield.
Bright, open plan, comfortable and clean. Great for a couple. Well equipped kitchen for self catering. Secure and lies back from the road with large private parking area. Watch the sunrise from the comfort of your bed! Next to edge of a caravan / campsite but quiet location. Long sandy beach at the end of the drive (pop down in your PJs & slippers, if you're classy like me!) Or take a G&T / cuppa. 20 min stroll along to Chanonry Point, a well known place for spotting dolphins, though not on our watch! Whole coastline / area is interesting for wildlife, geology & history. Highly recommend the Museum in Rosemarkie if interested in Pictish stones and art, where there is the Rosemarkie Stone. Be sure to explore other stones on the Pictish Trail. Nice shops, galleries & Cafés in nearby Cromarty. Recommend Sutor Creek Restaurant to eat out anytime of day. Some seafood & other dishes which were great. (Duck fritters and Ox Cheeks to die for). Also does wood fired pizza. We did a sea trip with Eco Ventures in Cromarty (next door to the restaurant). Very professional but no guarantees to see wildlife of course.
Small but adequate in a beautiful location
Great place to stay!
Lovely property in an ideal location. Owner on hand to assist with any queries. Excellent for dolphins at Chanonry Point. Would have stayed again in 2020 but sadly It’s already booked for the week that we wanted!
Loved being so close to the sea, and the lodge had everything I needed. Clean and perfect.
