Westerlea has been restored and stylishly refurbished to an exceptionally high standard. Sitting out on the westerly deck, favourite tipple in hand and watching the sunset will leave lasting memories for many years to come. Alternatively, an evening walk to Castle Craig (which you can see from the deck), a ruined 16th century Tower House which sits on the shore, gives the chance to really appreciate this expansive and tranquil area.
The cottage has been luxuriously appointed and has 3 bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms; a very well appointed kitchen and sumptuous sofas and chairs to sink into after a day exploring all the Black Isle has to offer. Hard to condense all the attractions of this lovely area in this small space but first of all, for those who love to eat out The Black Isle has become well known for the diverse and exciting menus available in its many restaurants. Sutor Creek in Cromarty – wood fired oven for delicious pizza and an alternative range of dishes is the closest and a visit to this fascinating and historic village is a must. RIB trips out with Eco Ventures to see the resident dolphins can be arranged from here too.
Udale Bay RSPB reserve is along the road and is spectacular from October to March with thousands of overwintering ducks and geese. In the summer, Osprey can be seen feeding here plus huge flights of Knot and of course you will almost certainly see the famous Black Isle Red Kites gliding over the cottage.
A lovely rural and peaceful location yet only 15 minutes drive from all the amenities of the Highland towns of Dingwall and Invergordon and just 20 minutes from the capital of the Highlands, Inverness. There is so much to enjoy in the immediate area but also under a 1 hour drive takes you west down Loch Ness; south to the Cairngorms; North to Dornoch and east to the Castles and whisky distilleries of Speyside.
