We can only confirm what other guests have said about this accommodation. The photos don't do it justice. The grounds were ideal for our children and dogs to run around in. My daughter loved the tree swing. The cottage itself was spacious, clean and well equipped. We were lucky to have good weather and spent every day on the beaches...

About the neighbourhood
There is plenty of fishing available nearby. There is the whisky distillery 'Clynelish' in Brora which offers tours for those who like to indulge in a 'wee dram'. The fantastic sandy beaches on this part of the Moray Firth stretch for miles and are generally quiet and a great place to walk. There is lots of history. For example there is the Timespan museum in Helmsdale, Dunrobin Castle and Grounds/Falconry in Golspie. Further north is the gateway to the Orkneys and the interesting towns of Thurso and Wick in Caithness. Inverness is a very lively city just over an hour to the south with lots to see and do.
