Burghead Cottage is a warm and comfortable fisherman's cottage that offers self-catering holidays in this wonderful part of Scotland. Moray stretches from the majesty of the Cairngorm mountains down to the coastline of the Moray Firth. It has many beautiful landscapes and sandy beaches, whilst being an excellent location to sight marine life, with dolphin spotting boat trips available. Places of historical interest to visit in the local area include Cawdor Castle, Ballindalloch Castle, Fort George, Brodie Castle and Elgin Cathedral. Moray also has the highest concentration of whisky distilleries any where in the world - where better to visit the spiritual home of your favourite malt, whether it be Macallan, Glenfiddich or Aberlour, to name just a few! Or follow the Whisky Trail. Golf lovers will also be happy, with several championship and links courses within a half hour's drive. And if you want to explore further afield, Inverness and Loch Ness, Aviemore or Royal Deeside are easy day trips.

The cottage itself is a family and dog friendly 2 bedroomed home from home, with a small, enclosed and very sheltered garden. It is furnished with modern comforts and entertainments, with two three-seater leather sofas in the lounge, a fully-equipped kitchen with an open plan lounge and dining area, a master bedroom with a king-sized bed and antique twin beds in the second bedroom. The new bathroom has a power shower as well as a bath. And if you need to stay in touch (or have children of a certain age!) there is superfast broadband.

Burghead is a planned village. Unfortunately, when they were building it, and the harbour, they destroyed most of what was one of the most important Pictish Forts in the area. The site, at the tip of the promontory or peninsular, is 2 minutes from the cottage and still makes a very pleasant walk with great views of the inner Moray Firth and across to the Black Isle from the Visitor Centre. Another nice walk from the cottage takes you down by the harbour, where fishermen are still active and you may see the local coastal rowing club heading out to sea, then past the old railway line across the sandy beach to Roseisle Woods. The tracks here are also good for mountain bikes if you want to go further afield, to Findhorn perhaps.

In summer, the days are near endless, sunsets stretch out and the darkness is brief. There are big skies and wide horizons, clear fresh air... In winter, the nights are long and deep and starry - and with uninterrupted views north, on occasion spectacularly lit by the Northern Lights.

Everything about this cottage was perfect. Plenty of space both inside and outside. Kitchen had everything we needed and more. Beds were comfortable and rooms spacious. Shower was high powered. Village had wee shops and a couple of pubs to eat and drink- pubs let dogs and children in. Would definitely book again if in area.

a well located cottage to a picturesque location. Surrounding sea's including harbour, sandy beaches. Historic sites on doorstep as well as easy travelling ones. Superstores within easy travel for supplies, although local shops too. The cottage itself is larger than appears in the photo's on web sites. Has plenty of room for families or pets, or opportunities to be homely and cosy. Has all the equipment required to make your holiday stress free. The booking procedure had a personal touch. Also on arrival the welcome pack is one of the best we have ever had. Will be back

Posted on by Christine ACustomer stayed Aug 2015

This is a lovely cosy cottage. Very comfortable, great space indoors. Welcome was a bonus.
Only down side really was the 5th bed (camp bed) and the small garden.
Beaches were close only a stone throw away. Had great weather which was lovely.
