Overview

About the property

Holiday home in quiet east end of Cromarty

This two bed cottage is one of four originally built in 1896 as new housing for some of the Cromarty fisher families and retains the old red sandstone walls. Extended and modernised over the years, Nicol Terrace Cotttage is an ideal base for a relaxing Highland holiday, only a short walk away from the shore front with its stunning views of Cromarty Bay and the Sutors.

The historic and attractive village of Cromarty is a wonderful holiday destination with a range of shops, cafes and restaurants (all within walking distance of the cottage), and a number of visitor attractions including Hugh Miller’s Cottage, the Cromarty Courthouse, the Cromarty Brewery and Cromarty Pottery.

From exploring the beaches and coastline to mountain biking at nearby Learnie Red Rock there are a number of activities to enjoy during your self-catering holiday. Chanonry Point, the well-known dolphin watching spot, is ten miles away, and many fantastic links golf courses can be found in the area. During the summer you can take the car and passenger ferry to Nigg and Easter Ross, where you can explore Dornoch, Tain and the Northern Highlands.

Nicol Terrace

  • 5 of 5

Excellent, quiet family home in lovely location in a very friendly town. The house has everything you'd need.

Cromarty itself is full of hidden delights, try the pirate graveyard, not far from the cottage.

Good

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was fantastic. The only difficult thing was that the bunk bed, though an adult size, did not have enough height for the person on the bottom bunk to sit up properly. Other than that the cottage was very comfy, thank you.

Cosy cottage in quiet location.

  • 4 of 5

A well positioned, probably former fisherman's cottage perhaps?

The cottage was neat, tidy and clean with the basic amenities for a reasonably comfortable stay.

Exactly what we needed for a weekend away

  • 4 of 5

Just what we needed for the Black Isle fiddle weekend.

The most friendly and helpful people. Lovely neighbours and the local shop went the extra mile for us when we needed a tick remover. Great weekend. Thanks.

Perfect location for old Cromarty

  • 4 of 5

This was a good 'find', brilliantly situated for Cromarty Fishertown, the shore and walks up the Sutor. The house is well equipped and has reliable wifi. (Mobile phone calls require a short walk round the corner). The information provided by the owners, clearly backed by a depth of local knowledge, is excellent - and they responded very helpfully to our direct queries about the heating. There is sheltered outdoor space that catches the sun for much of the day and, even though this sacrifices a sea view, it was relaxing to lie in bed listening to the waves!
