The river Nairn is just a short distance from us if you would like some peaceful fishing. Trips to Culloden Battlefield are a matter of minutes away as well as Tomatin distillery.

Some beautiful views are rewarded to you if you manage to walk around the local lnverarnie Esker Trail [SSI] which is in close proximity.

The garden is not enclosed but is secluded with the sun coming to the side of the property by 10am and lasting [hopefully] till late.

Wildhaven Cottage was like a home from home. The owner was so welcoming ad gave us a lot of information regarding where to visit. She also put essential food items in the cupboards and fridge. The cottage was in a beautiful setting and we wished we had booked for longer. We will return for another break without fail.

Very clean and everything you need is there also the owner could not have been more helpful
Mrs D, Wigton : 8th July, 2013

Wildhaven Cottage is absolutely superb for couples looking for a 2 person cottage, self catering, with views to die for. The cottage has everything you could need for a week or more - its very comfortable, clean and the owner very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and beyond indeed. For the same as what you pay to stay in a B&B, Wildhaven is an absolute steal!
