“Fabulous cottage in a fabulous location.”
Reviewed 8 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Rowan Cottage was immaculately prepared for our arrival - spotless. It has been brilliantly designed to make life easy with a very practical and well appointed kitchen and conservatory dining area. Two lounges is a bonus and the bedrooms are comfortable and well appointed. Rosemarkie and the Black Isle are a real find, with great walks, interesting places to visit and easy access to the central and west highlands. We will definitely be back to Rowan Cottage.

“Delightful Cottage”

The cottage was much larger than we expected and was very well equipped with everything we needed. As a couple in our party had some mobility problems the downstairs shower room and toilet was ideal. The proximity to local shops and the beach was a great plus and the local pub, The Plough Inn offered a tasty evening meal although the pub does need some refurbishment which I believe is being done. The little beach cafe offers great coffee and snacks , there are also some good eating places in nearby Fortrose. We would definitely book Rowan Cottage again.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Superbly situated near the shore of the /Moray Firt and hitting a hot sunny week with bbqs on the sand .

The cottage was spacious and well equipped giving a n excellent relaxing short break.

Only downside was the famous Moray Firth Dolphins were very shy making only brief appearances.

We will be back

Thank you for your review. Sorry about the dolphins! most guests manage to see them at some point, usually at Chanonry Point with the turning tide, but perhaps they were out at sea that week? it depends on the fish you know!
Glad you enjoyed the cottage and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rowan Cottage.It was so spacious,airy,cosy and clean.It was like home from home.Everything was in the cottage that you could possibly need for a weeks holiday.It was in an ideal location for visiting many places of interest and also great walks on the beautiful beach.We also had a lovely welcoming text message from Karen(who cleans the Cottage)to make sure we had arrived at the cottage. This was our first visit to Rowan Cottage and will definately not be our last.
