Average rating: (4 reviews)

4 4

Fuchsia Cottage - Fortrose Harbour, 4, St. Andrews Walk,, The Shore,, Fortrose, Highlands, IV10 8TP

Description of the holiday cottage

Fortrose is one of the oldest, prettiest towns in the north, with the 'Black Isle' noted for its milder climate.

Fuchsia Cottage is situated with a southerly aspect, adjacent to the beach and small harbour in Fortrose, overlooking the slipway used by the local sailing club. A tranquil location and ideal for simply relaxing, observing the Bottlenose Dolphins, or as a base to explore the Highlands.

The cottage is built in the traditional Scottish style of stone and is subject to conservation regulations together with the adjoining gable end walls of the original 'Smithy' which now forms the rear garden.

Best Features

Traditional, stone built harbour side cottage, situated in a conservation area on the Black Isle, overlooking the Moray Firth. Near Inverness, it is an ideal location for exploring the Highlands, observing dolphins and wildlife. Nearby beaches, local shops, restaurants and pubs, make it an ideal place for a quiet break. (WiFi enabled)

Grading: Scottish Tourist Board- 3 star.

Cottage Review:  

We had a wonderful time at the Black Isle. The weather was really good after the Sat. We have fallen in love with the dolphins Best time at Chanonry Point we found to be 1 to 2 hours after low tide. We went on the Ecoventures rib trip and saw loads quite close up. Apart from that lots of walking, an ice cream on the harbor bench outside the front door and a glass of wine in the evening each day. We are well chilled

We had a very enjoyable stay in this comfortable cottage. The location was very pretty and peaceful and the cottage was well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting Chanonry Point to see the dolphins and seals. The local shops were very useful. All in all a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful area.

Many thanks George, I think I've got the better weather though! It's been a fantastic week up here in Fortrose but there again we seem to have our own eco climate. (Can't understand why it took 20 mins to walk to the high street - its only 500 yds away)!!

Cottage Review:  

Great position, quiet and close to the Firth facing south, the area is recommended. Good facilities in the town. Cottage adequately equipped not luxurious but all the basics were there. Having to take sheets, duvet cover, towels was the only downside - although this was clear in the booking instructions.
