    Additional amenities & feature info
    The lounge has two large comfy settees. The centre piece is the woodburner and oak/caithness stone fireplace. The large picture windows have fantastic south facing views over the extensive grounds to the Moray Firth. The three bedrooms are all decorated in a contemporary style with plenty of storage space. The main bedroom has an ensuite shower room. There is also a family bathroom. The kitchen diner is fitted with all modern new appliances. The property has been newly carpeted and decorated given it a really fresh feel. There is also a conservatory which exploits the southern aspect.

    The gardens and land surrounding the cottage make it a great place to explore and roam particularly for kids. It's also a great place to watch the local wildlife!

This cottage is situated at Lothmore. When trying to find it, keep following the A9 for about 7 miles north of Brora (look out for the sign on the left next to the wooden shack that was once a bus stop).

Fairburn Cottage has everything you need. Spotless cottage, and the little extras are a nice touch. The views from this cottage are amazing, looking out over the sea. Directions were spot on. Alfie the Dog loved the big garden. Helmsdale Harbour & Brora Beach are worth seeing. Will definately be back. more
