About Kincurdie Cottage

Kincurdie Cottage is unforgettable. This fantastic crofters cottage is on the shores of Rosemarkie Beach, in a quiet location on a private estate. You're just steps from the beach, half a mile from the Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club, and a leisurely 5-minute walk from the local village pub. With space for up to six people to sleep in three lovely bedrooms, plus a double sofa bed to sleep two more adults (additional supplement applies), Kincurdie Cottage is ideal for families or friends.

Rosemarkie beach is on the magnificent Moray Firth. It is gorgeous in every season, with a sandy beach that's within strolling distance of the cottage, an excellent cafe, and panoramic views towards Fort George. You may be lucky enough to spot some of the bottlenose dolphins that visit to feed every day, especially if you walk up to the lighthouse, but, even if you don't, the views are still memorable. The calm waters are good for a dip (if you're brave enough - it is Scotland, after all!), the sand is perfect for castles, and there are rock pools to explore. Fairy Glen is another picturesque spot within walking distance of the cottage, and a good choice if it's too hot for the beach or it's been raining.

Staying at Kincurdie Cottage makes it easy to explore. It's only half an hour's drive to Inverness where you'll find a wide array of places to eat, drink and shop, as well as galleries, museums and historic churches. The site of the Battle of Culloden is also about 30 minutes by car from the cottage. It's hard not to be moved as you stand on the site where 1,600 men were killed in under an hour in what was one of Britain's bloodiest battles.

Cromarty is eight miles north of Rosemarkie. You'll feel as if you've stepped back in time as you walk along narrow lanes lined with remarkably well-preserved houses which date from the 1700s and were certainly built to last. Whilst visiting Cromarty, make time to visit to The Black Isle and Hugh Miller Museum. You can also catch the Ferry of Nigg (seasonal) and explore the North Coast 500 route.

The landscape around Ross and Cromarty is some of the finest in the entire Highlands. In addition to walking and cycling, guests enjoy it through horse riding, playing golf, sailing or taking a sightseeing cruise, and fishing. There are also fabulous opportunities for foodies with fantastic local places to eat with notable chefs creating dishes from the finest of local ingredients like Sutors, IV10, Crofters and Chanterelle. For those wishing to travel further afield, the Cairngorms, Ben Wyvis and Aviemore with its ski-slopes are within an hours drive. There's an attraction or activity for every weather so, while you may be relaxed, you'll never be bored.
