Holiday Rental House
Lovingly restored 18th Cent. traditional fisherman's cottage in Crovie Conservation Village. This 3 Star VisitScotland Approved self-catering cottage sleeps 6 people in a very high degree of comfort. Underfloor heating in the kitchen, washer/dryer, shower, bath, cooker, microwave, DVD, free wifi and Smart TV. A beautiful cottage with outstanding views, 'Number 13' has to be seen to be enjoyed. Every room (except the bathroom) has a sea view. The sea laps at the front door and soothes you to sleep at night. Relax with a warming dram by the real fireside, or curl up with a romantic video and gaze out to sea. You can often see Moray Firth dolphins, watch the local gannet colony diving 100m from the front door, or take exhilarating clifftop walks along the coast.

Be inspired by the sea - try and catch your dinner from the pier or buy fresh seafood from local suppliers and cook it yourself. A perfect base for exploring this beautiful corner of the Scottish Highlands. Sunsets are a speciality. Whatever your pace, slow or dead slow, Crovie will occupy a special place in your heart. Parking close, waves closer. Not suitable for triskaidekaphobics.More
