Fountain Cross Cottage is a bijou terrace cottage situated on the seafront in the picturesque seaside village of Portmahomack. Just a few steps from the pretty, sandy beach and harbour, this attractive Victorian fisherman’s cottage provides a warm and welcoming base for couples and singles.
Original cottage doors open onto the hallway followed by feature stable doors leading into the living room where there is a large wood burner. There are two deep, comfortable sofas and lovely soft furnishings. The adjoining kitchen is well equipped with modern built-in units and a dining table for two. Steep cottage stairs lead up from the living room to the first floor landing. The double bedroom is attractively presented in a pretty cottage style and a bright, modern shower room completes the picture.
Fountain Cross Cottage is situated in the centre of this pretty, unspoilt fishing village with excellent amenities all close by. Just across the road is a superb, sweeping sandy beach, with stunning views of the Sutherland Mountains and beyond. The attractive fishing harbour has a pier and variety of small local craft. The village also has a choice of restaurants as well as a pub, café and a traditional links golf course which is open to visitors. The area is renowned for its archaeological sites and at the nearby Tarbat Discovery Centre there is a fascinating display of Pictish, Norse and Medieval artefacts. There are superb coastal walks direct from the cottage, a particularly spectacular walk winds around the coast, passing the Tarbat Lighthouse on the promontory. Within ten minutes’ drive lies the oldest Royal Burgh of Scotland. Predominantly built from local mellow sandstone, Tain is a charming historic town and offers an excellent selection of small shops, restaurants, cafés and pubs as well as a wide variety of sporting and recreational facilities.
