Harbour View - No4

Harbour View - No4

The picturesque village of Cromarty lies on the tip of the Black Isle, overlooking the Cromarty Firth, only 22 miles from Inverness. This historic village, surrounded by beautiful countryside and coastline, is an ideal destination for a relaxing Highland holiday. The 18th century history of the village is preserved in the architecture, with a historic conservation area featuring cobbled lanes and charming fisherman’s cottages. History lovers should also visit the Cromarty Courthouse Museum and Hugh Miller’s Cottage and Museum to journey into the past.

There are a range of lovely shops in the village including Cromarty Pottery and the Cromarty Cheese House, as well as wonderful eateries, such as the popular Sutor Creek Café.

Other attractions and activities in the area include a wildlife boat trip with Eco Ventures, the Cromarty Brewing Company, sandy beaches, golfing, wildlife watching, walking and cycling. Whether you’re looking for outdoor adventure or idyllic surroundings in which to unwind, the Cromarty area has it all.

Cromarty is around ten miles from Fortrose, where you can look for bottlenose dolphins at Chanonry Point, play a round of golf at the Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Course or walk on the sandy Rosemarkie Beach. Nearby Fairy Glen offers peaceful woodland walking.

As well as discovering the delights of the Black Isle, Cromarty is a great base for exploring more of the spectacular Scottish Highlands, as well as south around the Inverness area and across to the scenic Moray Coast.

Harbour View, 4 George Street is a 3 bedroom terraced townhouse style house with 3 bedrooms over 2 floors.

Originally built for the Coastguard Officers around 1920 the house has since been fully renovated and benefits from a modern fully fitted galley kitchen, double glazing and central heating. The houses were originally built with outside toilets; then the Coastguard Management installed toilet and both facilities indoors at the back of the house. We are happy to say that there are toilet facilities on each floor now and Harbour View has a relaxing lounge overlooking the immediate harbour.

Guest Comments

Very homely & comfortable house with good position overlooking Cromarty Firth. Quite quirky in a way with a lovely snug/viewing room & massive master bedroom with bath sheets & robes as well as the usual hand & bath towels. Welcome pack was good & we were pleased to find that items left surplus by previous guests were not taken away but remained for future visitors. We were happy to fall in with this arrangement. All amenities within walking distance including the well known bakery & Cromarty Arms pub. Exit the property by the back gate and you are in the harbour or the bar of the Royal Hotel and other eating places. The influence of the stone mason & geologist Hugh Miller on the history of Cromarty provides interesting historical information into the growth of the town. There are several interesting walks especially along the beach leading to steps climbing to the top of Sutor viewpoint. If you like peace & tranquility away from the stress of modern life this is the place for you.
Leo, Droitwich : 10th September, 2016

We love Cromarty. The house gave us a perfect base to explore the Black Isle and take advantage of all that Cromarty has to offer. The accommodation was comfortable and quirky, which we loved, and the sea views, especially the sunsets were out of this world!
Jill, Fleet : 20th August, 2016

The kitchen was well stocked. The house was clean and comfortable.
Farina, London : 25th July, 2016

Everything. Position, facilities within the accommodation, the cleanliness . . .
Catherine, France : 18th June, 2016

Beautiful house and location. Well equipped and thoughtful extras like the robes and food on arrival were appreciated.
Jan, Prestwick : 4th June, 2016

We loved the house and where it was situated, especially the sun room where we sat all the time.
Jean, Stirling : 14th May, 2016

Excellent first impressions on arrival continued throughout and really made our holiday relaxing despite the weather that week. Parking outside was welcome and the beautifully presented, spacious and well equipped house is in an excellent location overlooking the harbour and within minutes walk of several good eating places. The owners, who are very hospitable, left an extremely generous welcome pack of bread, cheese, eggs, wine etc. and called to ensure we had everything we needed..and we certainly did! I would have no hesitation recommending this property and will certainly be booking here for our next trip to Cromarty.
Linda, Charlestown : 22nd April, 2016

The house was lovely, comfortable and warm and had everything you could possibly want. Cromarty is a beautiful wee village and an ideal position for touring.
Jean, East Kilbride : 15th April, 2016

The house was beautiful, clean and warm. The owners had left food in the fridge and the views were simply stunning.
Yvonne, Dunblane : 11th April, 2016

The house was large, comfortable and welcoming. It was very well equipped with good quality furnishings/bedding/ towels and utensils/crockery etc in the kitchen - this was really appreciated as we have often been let down with previous holiday lets have used cheap/poor quality products and us being unable to cook properly. The thoughtfulness of leaving basics - bread, milk, eggs, bacon etc was really kind and very much appreciated. The owner was extremely helpful while we were there sorting out a heating issue immediately and very kindly posted back to me some hairbrushes I'd left. I would definitely recommend this property.
Kay, warrington : 27th December, 2015

Great situation over looking the harbour and the garden room made the most of this view. The place was very clean and well appointed. Little touches like eggs, bacon, milk and butter left in the fridge for us, which is greatly appreciated after a long journey. Places to eat within walking distance - Sutter Creek - fab pizzas and the Royal Hotel also provides good food. Not to mention the two local breweries Cromarty & The Black Isle. We would definitely stay again. Thank you.
Maria, Powys : 11th October, 2015

Great accommodation on all fronts, very comfortable, warm, full of character & wifi. Very close to local friendly pub, which is great for kids & dog. Pretty much perfect, made only better by the great weather & friendly locals. Throughout it was a great place to stay & we'll definitely be back next year
Mark, Moodieburn : 7th October, 2015

Roomy dining/sitting room with additional space in sun lounge which overlooked the harbor. This worked really well for us as we were 4 generations staying in Cromarty for a wedding. The well equipped kitchen enabled us to entertain other family members comfortably which added greatly to the weekend. Bed rooms were comfortable and the provision of toilet facilities on each level was a boon. I highly recommend the property and we would all love to return including our visitors. Wifi was available and the information provided most useful.
Susan, Stirling : 25th September, 2015

The house was beautiful. A real home from home. It was well equipped, and in a fabulous location. We really appreciated the welcome pack. It had everything we could have wanted.
Anne, Winchburgh : 24th September, 2015

In a word beautiful, the house was very clean, warm and quiet, we liked the fact there was "bacon & eggs" in the fridge so we didn't have to go hunting for shops after a 7 hour drive, (my daughter wants to live there) It was central for drives out to Inverness, John O Groats, and a few Distilleries, all in all we loved our stay in Cromarty and the Black Isle.
Billy, Hebburn : 24th August, 2015

Lovely cottage and very spacious. Great to have 2 bathrooms and a downstairs toilet. There is a separate private garden that was a nice surprise as was the bottle of wine and snacks left for us. Great area for exploring the Black Isle and Inverness area. Beware the walk to mcfarquhar bed! We tried it with our 3 and 6 year old from the 100 steps walk and got very boggy and wet.. and 2 days later we heard on the radio that two teenagers had to be rescued by the coast guard doing the same walk. Lovely village, including a great playpark.
Jude, Edinburgh : 5th August, 2015

The view from the back room, the house itself and its location and the facilities. The welcome pack was a lovely and welcome surprise as was the owners flexibility around entry and leaving times.
Lynn, Hartford : 4th June, 2015

Excellent accommodation in a wonderful position overlooking the harbour and Cromarty Firth. The owners had thought of supplying every thing you could possibly need, even filling the fridge with basic foods and a bottle of wine.
Grant, Stornoway : 4th May, 2015
