Cottage in Avoch, Scottish Highlands, Scotland 10 miles north of Inverness - Tranquil Location With Sea Shore Garden To The Front
Tanera More was built as a fishermans cottage about 180 years ago and retains many original features. The situation on the shore of the Moray Firth makes it a delightful place to spend time simply admiring the views and the changing light over the sea. Great location for many outdoor activities. Walking, Cycling, Sailing, Birdwatching, Golf and horse riding can all be enjoyed locally. There are some excellent local museums for rainy days and good restaurants to be found in Fortrose, Munlochy and Cromarty. The highland capital of Inverness is only 10 miles away and boat cruises on Loch Ness are always popular. Ancient Pictish remains dot the landscape in this area which is mainly agricultural. It is a perfect gate way to the west coast for a day out to the Isle of Skye and the beauty of the more rugged west coast.

About Suzana Fry
Suzana Fry purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Suzana Fry chose Avoch
Tanera More is the ideal "Highland cottage by the sea". The village of Avoch has always been a fishermans cove and the small harbour continues to support a small community of fisherman plus a new generation of pleasure trips to see the dolphins. This part of the Moray Firth enjoys a mild climate sheltered from the open seas by Channory Point, and the area is abundant in wild life. The Cairngorm mountains to the south are covered in snow during the winter months and lure out door enthusiasts. Local culture of legend and folklore are on the door step and intriguing Pictish remains dot the landscape. Sandy beaches are close by in Rosemarkie and there's golfing in Fortrose. It's the perfect holiday getaway, yet is only 10 miles from the amenities of Inverness.

Wonderful Fisherman's cottage. Very well equipped and close to beautiful areas for walking
We just loved this cottage. It has everything you could wish for in the kitchen. It is very clean and the beds are comfortable with new bedding. Suzana is a super host, taking the time to show you around the place and leaving flowers and a bottle of wine. We so enjoyed the area especially the dolphins and Rosemarkie beach. We will be recommending this place to others!
Wonderful cottage with a fantastic Firth view
From meeting the owner Suzana it was a trip to remember. Suzana was very welcoming and the cottage was set up like a true home from home. So warm and comfortable. The view of the Moray Firth is outstanding. A perfect setting to explore the the Black Isle and beyond. Wildlife is abundant and it’s a short drive to Chanonary point to see dolphins if you are lucky.
This is a highly recommended location.
Perfect place to take in the Black Isle
The cottage is spacious and cozy and looks right out onto the Moray Firth, with beautiful sunsets and sunrises from the bedroom windows. We loved our meals in the delightful eat-in kitchen and cooking in it was made easy by all the top-of-the line appliances. Suzane is an excellent host: the cottage was already warmed up for us when we arrived and there were lots of lovely extra touches such as extra slippers that made us immediately comfortable and at home. We are already planning our return.
A lovely cottage in a picturesque setting. Perfect for touring the Black Isle and Inverness.
Stayed for three nights for a relaxing break. Wandered around Avoch, Fortrose, Formantine and Cromarty. Retail therapy and a bit of culture in Inverness.
