Located next door to the owner, it is a truly romantic seaside cottage for two. The attractive open plan living space looks out across the shoreline, where dolphins and porpoises are regularly seen. There is plenty of comfortable seating in the living area, and the bright modern kitchen is very well equipped and complete with a breakfast bar.

With flower pots, tubs and outdoor garden furniture, it provides an ideal spot to enjoy a drink whilst watching the small craft bobbing on the bay in the tiny harbour.

Seascape is ideally located in this quaint seaside village and just a short walk to the adjoining ‘seaboard’ villages of Balintore and Shandwick. There is a pub, village shop, restaurant and café all within easy level walking distance along the seafront. The shoreline along this coast boasts wide sandy beaches interspersed with rocky outcrops. The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise with sailing, canoeing, surfing and fishing all local pastimes, and there is a slipway opposite the cottage, ideal for launching kayaks and small craft. Mountain biking, hill walking, golf and horse riding are also enjoyed locally. Just 10 minutes’ drive away is the pretty sandstone town of Tain, the oldest Royal Burgh of Scotland. Here a larger selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafés and pubs are available, as well as wide variety of sporting and recreational facilities. This part of the Highlands is also easily accessible for exploring further afield. Head north to the wild open landscapes of Caithness, west to the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, or south to Inverness, the capital of the Highlands which is less than an hour’s drive away.

“Excellent cottage in amazing location. Views to sea wonderful.Seascape is a compact little cottage, but has everything you need for a comfortable holiday.Within, there are 4 separate little seating areas, as well as your bed! Views from all are sea vistas.The kitchen is modern and well equipped. A previous reviewer had commented on lack of dining space, so we were delighted to find this had been rectified.We were still in semi lockdown, so some facilities in the villages were not available. But, normally, there are two pubsrestaurants. Also a community coffee shop, and a well stocked Spar.There are lovely sea walks direct from the cottage, which are flat and easy walking.We didnt have the best weather, but were out walking every day, and also enjoyed relaxing with a glass of wine dolphin watching. And we were lucky!There is a lovely little garden across the lane with two seating areas. Sadly it was not to be for us!Only slight negative I would mention is that the cottage was very cold when we arrived. It is storage heating, and it hadnt been switched on the night before our arrival, so no heat in the radiators. There is an electric fire which we used, but it was the next day before we were really cosy.That aside, we had the most relaxed break in a beautiful location. Thank you to Betty, the owner!We would recommend the cottage and the area for a truly relaxing break.PS we also found the people in the village very welcoming and friendly.”

“Although it rained the whole time we were there it was a great breakaway from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. Betty was a great asset as she lives in the adjoining cottage.”

“A fantastic little cottage right on the sea front. We were lucky enough to to sit outside, in the garden, most afternoons (in September). The cottage itself is very cosy, with everything we needed, and Betty the owner, made us feel most welcome.”
