Dolphin house benefits from being within walking distance of a beach, a bar, a restaurant, an excellent food store, a golf course, woodland and coastal walks and a prime dolphin-watching site - reputed to be the only place to watch dolphins from the shore at close quarters.
This is a particularly accommodating family home designed to make families with children welcome and comfortable. The huge sitting room is quite special and leads out onto the safely enclosed garden and terrace, which is private and perfect for barbecues. The dining room is spacious and cosy with a wood-burning stove and doors out to the garden. In 2013 the house was upgraded with a new bathrooms and newly decorated bedrooms and offers a lovely family atmosphere.
For those with a less-able member of the party there is a ground floor bedroom and adapted shower room. This room has doors out to the garden and is accessible by wheelchair.
The house is just a short walk from the beach from where you can walk to the dolphin-watching point at the lighthouse. This is a lovely viewpoint giving stunning views down the Moray Firth to Inverness and the Great Glen. Alternatively, head inland and wind your way through the extremely pretty natural woodland of the Fairy Glen.
Cyclists can enjoy road cycling through the myriad of quiet country roads, and mountain bikers are just a short cycle away from the Learnie Red Rock tracks and trails, which are some of the best in the north of Scotland.
Foodies will find that a few steps away from Dolphin House is one of the best family-run delicatessen/butchers/bakery stores in the north, with an impressive array of fresh foods prepared and baked on the premises daily. We highly recommend that you visit this shop early in your stay, as you will surely want to dine on this wonderful produce! For dining out, we recommend The Anderson in Fortrose - a 5-minute drive or 20-minute walk.
