Osprey Cottage is a pretty semi-detached self-catering cottage situated in tranquil wooded grounds in the hamlet of Alcaig on the Black Isle.

The cottage has stunning views of the Cromarty Firth with the mountains of Easter Ross beyond from the living area. It is a view which is constantly changing with the tide and light. The tidal firth is a haven for wildlife and Ospreys can be seen most days in the summer months fishing over the firth and in the winter thousands of geese can be seen.

The space
It has a kitchen and an open-plan dining and living area with wide-reaching views across the Cromarty Firth and also towards Ben Wyvis. The cottage has easy ramp access making it suitable for some disabled guests and wheelchair users.

The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, washer-dryer machine, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge-freezer.

There is one double bedroom (with a king-sized bed and a walk-in wardrobe) and one single bedroom. Both have views across the Inner Cromary Firth to the mountains of Easter Ross.

The lounge has a TV with Freeview and a built in DVD player and selection of DVDs, a CD/Radio, games, and lots of leaflets and information.

The cottage has under-floor heating with individually-controllable thermostats in each room and a heated-towel radiator in the shower room.

From the dining area, french doors open out onto the private patio area which has tables and chairs. There are shared wooded gardens that host a large amount of birdlife. The cottage is located at the end of a private drive and has parking for a car immediately in front of it.

One well-behaved pet may be allowed by arrangement at no extra cost.

Despite the peace and quiet, the cottage is conveniently located for the town of Dingwall (3 miles away) and the Highland's capital Inverness (12 miles). It is also the perfect base for touring the Highlands being at the hub of the road network. Some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK - Glen Affric, Loch Ness, Torridon, Assynt - is less than an hour away. The Black Isle itself has historical villages like Cromarty, great beaches such as Rosemarkie and in Chanonry Point has the best land location to see dolphins in the UK.

Osprey Cottage offers you the opportunity to stay in a clean, comfortable, quiet location with exceptional views and be perfectly located for the best the Highlands has to offer.
