Description

Enjoying a delightful and peaceful setting just a short walk from the beach, this lovely terraced cottage for four has been equipped and tastefully furnished to a very good standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible. The small fishing village of Avoch is set in the beautiful Black Isle and makes a perfect base for exploring the many attractions of this stunning part of the Northern Highlands. The village and neighbouring Fortrose benefit from a good selection of shops, pubs, cafés plus Indian and Chinese takeaways and of course, fish and chips, all within 500 yards of Seashore, along with a wonderful sense of the history of the village.

There is an abundance of walks in the area whether it’s along the sweeping, unspoilt beaches, with a beautiful, sandy beach 1½ miles away and a pebble beach just 50 yards, or through wooded trails and perhaps up to visit the former site of the historic Ormond Castle. The castle is believed to be a stronghold of William the Lion, King of Scots who reigned from 1165AD to 1214AD. From the castle you can enjoy the magnificent views of this area.

Amongst the many activities available are mountain biking, golf, water sports and sea trips, and you may have the pleasure of seeing some of the dolphins and seals which are regularly seen from the boat. The RSPB Munlochy Bay is just over a mile from Avoch, and you can sit in the hide and watch and photograph a huge variety of birds which visit regularly. Slightly further afield are Inverness, the Highland capital, Loch Ness, Culloden Battlefield and Fort George, just a few of the many interesting places that are within easy reach. Take a trip down the Moray Firth coastline dotted with picturesque fishing villages, or travel west to see more of the stunning scenery of the Highlands. For the less energetic, sit back, relax and unwind in this wonderful house where lots of happy memories will undoubtedly be made. Beach 50 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

About the local area

Discover a wonderful variety of contrasting landscapes that will make a lasting impression, from the remote rock-hewn wilderness of far north west Sutherland to the green rolling coastal lands by the Cromarty Firth. Wherever you travel you're surrounded by some of the most outstanding remote natural beauty in Scotland.

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy `The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

Summer visitors to the Highlands (mostly July and August) may not want to miss the annual Highland Games, which are held across the Highlands and are a unique spectacle of athletic, dancing and piping events which should not be missed!
