Wonderful cottage with everything you could wish for a great holiday. The enclosed garden was ideal for our grandchildren and our 12 year old westie. Easy access to the main road leading to the many and varied attractions in the area.

Reviewed by Jenny 10th August 2019

Fantastic cottage. We had 3 generations and 4 dogs. Loads of space, very clean. Garden was amazing for both dogs and teenagers. Great location, so quiet but close to town. We loved the local woods and even saw dolphins. Would definitely reccomend this cottage and would love to go back.

This is a fantastic location for people who love to take their dogs on holiday very remote and secluded whilst being very close to Nairn, Forres and Elgin. If you take your dogs with you make sure you visit the secret beach with them. One of our dogs is a rescue dog and has never been allowed so much freedom as he got whilst on our walks to the secRead moreret beach. Hide
