The property

East Cottage is so perfectly located for a fun-packed holiday that it is hard to convey all that this area has to offer. Its position, up in the hills and surrounded by farmland, woodlands and forest, is just the best for those looking to pursue an activity holiday whether that is cycling, walking, skiing, fishing, kayaking or golf. For anyone interested in history then it's all on your doorstep starting with the ancient stone circles, the Bronze Age Clava Cairns through to the battlefield site of the Jacobite Rebellion at Culloden. There are many castles open to the public and Fort George military museum at Ardersier. Natural history buffs will appreciate the close proximity both to the sea, with the opportunity to either take a boat trip out to watch for dolphins or to see them from the shores of the Black Isle, and to the farmland, forests and woodlands surrounding the cottage where many small mammals, deer and birds can be seen. Beach lovers are spoilt for choice with the fabulous Nairn, Findhorn and Lossiemouth beaches plus the fascinating Culbin Sands. Head down Loch Ness to see Urquhart Castle and watch its history unfold on their excellent video. Drive round the loch passing through Fort Augustus and coming back up to Inverness by the south shore. There are plenty of places to eat out, shop locally or pick up a take away. There is everything available from Michelin starred restaurants to a great fish and chip shop! We highly recommend this cottage for those who want a really wide variety of things to do and places to see. However, you will return each day to the comforts of this well-appointed cottage - to take in yet another magnificent view.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location

CAWDOR

Nairn 5.4 miles; Inverness 13.4 miles.

The picturesque and historic village of Cawdor has much to offer visitors who will appreciate the quiet ambiance of the village. Cawdor is famous for its 'Macbeth' connection with its 17th century Castle which is still home to the Cawdor family today. There is also a first class tavern boasting modern Scottish food with flair accompanied by a first class choice of wines. The city of Inverness, known as The Capital of the Highlands, is the gateway to the countless delights of the Highlands of Scotland. Of particular note is the legendary Loch Ness which is surrounded by some truly breathtaking scenery, although most visitors are usually on the lookout for something a bit more mysterious! Just outside the city is the Culloden Battlefield at Culloden Moor (National Trust). The site of the last major battle fought on British soil. Inverness is the gateway to the stunning west coast and even a day trip across the sea to Skye is possible. Inverness City itself has much to offer – museums, an art gallery, fine theatre and leisure facilities, not to mention shops, pubs and restaurants. The area is packed with opportunities for outdoor pursuits especially as the Cairngorm National Park is just 40 mins drive away where skiing, snowboarding, climbing and so much more are readily available. For the Golf enthusiast this area offers an abundance of championship courses within a short drive and of course mountain bikers will be impressed with the selection of tracks that pass through fabulous scenery. The nearby Moray Firth is home to a diverse range of wildlife and marine life including dolphins, which can be seen from the shore or on trips from the harbour.

Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental.
