“We could ask for no more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This was our first visit to Dolphin Cottage and the whole family were delighted. Not only was the house clean, cosy and well-equipped, with extra touches of milk, coffee and other supplies, but it was extremely roomy with plenty of space for everyone and with very comfortable beds. Being situated next to the beach, playparks and putting green and within easy walking distance of the shops, there was no need to use our car during the entire stay. We highly recommend Dolphin Cottage where you, too, will be given a very friendly welcome when you arrive.

“A lovely holiday cottage in an excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We (family of three) stayed for 2 weeks in the Dolphin view Cottage and enjoyed it very much. The house is in a great location - sea view from the master bedroom, what more can you ask for :-). The facilities are great, kitchen, TV, internet access, everything was all right. The booking process and the communication with the owners was very easy and straight forward, could not have been better. Nairn is definitely worth a visit, even in wintertime, a loverly little town. Pubs, shops and restaurants are in walking distance from the cottage. For Hogmanay we went to Inverness, there's a big public event each year at the Northern meeting park with a big stage and live music and thousands of people celebrating - what a great night. Luckily on that night it didn't rain and the temperature was reasonable.

“A lovely cottage near the beach and harbour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Dolphin View Cottage is in Fishertown, the old part of Nairn near the harbour with lots of interesting lanes and twisty routes through. It faces across a grassy area to the beach and we did see dolphins in the Moray Firth. There is even a pair of binoculars on the windowsill if you want a closer view. We were out and about during the day as there are lots of interesting places nearby, and also enjoyed evening walks along the beach. The cottage was well equipped, very clean, and everything worked. The beds were very comfortable. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by a neighbour who looks after the cottage. There was space for one car directly on the property, and there was also plenty of nearby parking for extra cars. The owner was very helpful while we were booking and clearly takes a pride in the property.

“Ideal house ideal location couldn't ask for any better.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013 for a stay in September 2012

Been going to Dolphin view twice a year for a number of years and love it. The house is lovely and clean in a great location for beach and walks and views over the moray firth.
Would definitely recommend the house. Good base for exploring the highlands.

We have just returned from our stay and the cottage had everything we required to make our holiday great. The cottage was warm and cosy on our arrival, beds all made and lovely and clean. Towels and bed linen being included in the let is a bonus.

The location was ideal, near to the beach, parks and nice walks. I have 3 small children and the enclosed garden was ideal. there is also off road parking at the back.

I would definitely recommend and also may return.......
