Eco-friendly, contemporary, purpose-built property in the beautiful coastal village of Avoch on the scenic Black Isle, the perfect base to relax or explore the stunning Scottish Highlands and Islands.

Situated on a quiet street in the old fisher’s part of the village, this contemporary two-bedroom cottage is perfect for families or friends seeking a relaxing break in the Highlands. The sand and shingle Avoch Beach is less than 200 metres from the front door for stone skimming competitions and paddles in the clear sea. Pick up some locally caught fish in the village shop for your supper or stop in the welcoming pub for a craft beer or dram of whisky.

Your eco-friendly cottage has a charming contemporary style, with soft neutral tones and bright accents of colour. The open-plan living space has a relaxing ambience where you can forget about the stresses and strains of modern life. French doors lead onto the pretty patio garden, filling the room with natural light and creating a peaceful and calming atmosphere.

Enter the cottage through the front door and step into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Rustle up delicious dinners in the stylish and well-equipped kitchen to share at the centrally positioned dining table. After a busy day exploring the area, sink into one of the comfortable sofas and relax watching your favourite TV programme or playing a board game. Your spacious family shower room is on this level.

When the day is done take the wooden staircase to the first floor where you will find the two cosy bedrooms, a double and a twin, nestled into the eaves under the sloping ceiling. There is also a convenient WC on the first floor.

The French doors in the dining area lead to your pretty, private patio garden where you can enjoy dining alfresco at the seating area listening to the seabirds calling overhead.

Situated on the south coast of the Black Isle, the historic fishing village of Avoch is the ideal destination for those seeking a holiday exploring the great outdoors and the natural world. Stroll to the shoreline for a paddle in the clear waters and keep your eyes peeled for seals, dolphins and porpoises splashing in the Moray Firth. Visit the Avoch Heritage Centre to discover the history of this charming village and stroll along the narrow streets to the pretty harbour. Lace up your walking boots for a walk-up Ormond Hill to the ruins of Ormond Castle and be rewarded with wonderful views across the bay.

Chanonry Point (3 miles) is considered to be one of the best spots in the world to spot bottlenose dolphins playing in the Moray Firth. Walk to the shingle beach behind the lighthouse and keep your eyes peeled for the dolphins chasing the fish on the rising tide. Take to the seas from Avoch Harbour on a wildlife cruise in search of seals, dolphins and porpoises. Seek out red kites and ospreys soaring in the skies above you.

Not to be missed is a trip to Loch Ness (26 miles) where you can discover the legend of the world-famous Nessie at the impressive visitor centre, take a boat across the water in search of the mythical sea creature and picnic in the shadow of Urquhart Castle.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
