The property

Lilac Cottage has received rave reviews from everyone who has stayed. Check out the visitor comments for this exquisite cottage on the shores of the Moray Firth. A 4 star award well earned. This self-catering Black Isle cottage has an enviable location in the peaceful waterside hamlet of Kilmuir. Far removed from the main roads, peace and tranquillity are assured - yet you can be in the bustling Highland capital of Inverness in 10 minutes. The airport is just 20 minutes away. Kilmuir lies in the southern part of the Black Isle. The village is not far from Inverness, but it is fairly secluded as it is placed at the end of a narrow single track road. It lies on the northern shore of the Moray Firth and east of the Kessock Bridge, below Ord Hill, at the top of which lies an ancient fort. There are excellent walks to the top of Ord Hill which gives panoramic views west down the Great Glen, south to the Cairngorms and east out towards the North Sea. The resident Moray Firth dolphins travel up the stretch of water in front of the cottage as they pass through to feeding grounds in the Beauly Firth. Further east on the Black Isle is the famous Chanonry Point viewing point where the best and closest views of the dolphins are achieved. If you park your car near the churchyard there are marked walks from there to the village, to North Kessock, and circular routes following the coast towards Munlochy Bay. The Black Isle has many attractions for visitors and the various villages each have their own character - but all offer excellent dining out opportunities! Mountain biking at Eathie is both challenging and rewarding as is sailing and kayaking from Fortrose. There are fishing and dolphin watching trips from Cromarty and Avoch (pronounced 'och') nearby. Alternatively, why not just relax into the timeless peace of this secluded hamlet and enjoy the view!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

Perched at the head of Munlocky Bay in the Black Isle is the small and charming village of Munlochy. Boasting a 4-star hotel which houses a bar and restaurant, ideal for a delicious bite to eat, a beautiful church, two-well stocked convenience stores for picking up any essentials and a scenic woodland trail set along the Bug Burn.

Nearby is the town of Fortrose, offering a picturesque harbour where dolphins can be spotted from the Chanonry Point and an excellent golf club with stunning views. The neighbouring village of Rosemarkie offers a beautiful sandy beach where you can paddle the waters or grab a bite from the café.
