Beautifully located on the edge of the Moray Firth in the historic town of Fortrose, this is a 200 year old extended cottage which has been totally renovated in 2017 to offer a luxury self catering holiday home for 6. The views are peaceful and panoramic, with the chance to spot the Moray Firth dolphins heading up the Firth in search of a tasty meal of salmon. Our visitors need not put so much effort into enjoying a salmon dish as there are 2 excellent restaurants in walking distance and another a short drive, or a longer beach walk, to The Crofters in Rosemarkie. The house is beautifully decorated in calming neutral shades and the use of contemporary artifacts and a minimalist style will appeal to those seeking tranquility and an uncluttered life. The dining kitchen is spacious and well equipped and there is the convenience of a ground floor double bedroom and bathroom for those less able to climb the stairs. The focus of the house though is absolutely towards the sea - which dominates the light effect in the house both on the ground floor and in all the bedrooms. Fortrose is the main town on the Black Isle and has a good local butcher, a Co-op, 2 bakeries, 2 cafe's, a post office and several attractive shops such as a jewellery shop and an antique shop. A huge, 6 mile long sandy beach is a short drive away (5 minutes) and a great links golf course is as close with its bar and restaurant open to visitors. Of course the highlight of Fortrose is Chanonry Point, one of the only places in Europe, where dolphins can be observed at close quarters from the shore. Sometimes they come so close you feel you could almost touch them. Head down there about 1-2 hours after the lowest tide and you stand a good chance of a sighting. If you don't catch sight of these beautiful creatures just wander along the beach to the excellent Crofters Restaurant where you will not be disappointed with either the menu or the service.
