Seashell Cottage is a traditional stone built cottage, situated right in the heart of the village of Cromarty, at the tip of the popular Black Isle peninsula. All amenities are within immediate walking distance including: dolphin watching cruises with EcoVentures; well stocked store; a bakery for fresh daily produce; a specialist cheese deli; a post office; a restaurant with wood fired pizza oven and cafe selling home made ice cream; a hotel with restaurant open to the public and a pub with bar-food. There is an award winning Court-House Museum and an Art Exhibition centre. The Old Brewery Cromarty Centre frequently features live musicians and events and the, now legendary, Cromarty Film Festival takes place here annually.
The beach is a stroll from the house and varies from sandy to shingle. Alternatively, a circular walk along the shore, up through woodland to the top of the South Sutor hill and back down, is a great way to get some exercise. All this is without even leaving the village! Venture further on the Black Isle and there are yet more attractions for the holiday maker from the terrific cycle tracks at Red Rock Learnie, the long sandy beach and beach cafe at Rosemarkie, a Pictish Museum at Rosemarkie and most spectacular of all - standing on the shore at Chanonry Point in Fortrose and watching the dolphins leap out of the water!
There are several other excellent restaurants on the Black Isle including The Anderson in Fortrose, The Station in Avoch and the Allangrange Arms in Munlochy.
If you still feel the need to leave the Black Isle then Inverness is just 30 minutes away and Loch Ness under an hour drive.
The cottage is beautifully appointed, light and airy and will be a delightful place to return to after exploring all The Black Isle and beyond has to offer.
There is parking outside the house but with a bus stop to Inverness nearby it is possible to have a car free holiday at this lovely cottage.
