Margaret Street Cottage

Margaret Street Cottage

Situated in the village of Avoch on the Black Isle this traditional, well equipped and comfortable fisherman's cottage retains much of its late 19th century character and has been fully modernised to a high standard. Located on a quiet street in the old fishers part of the village, Margaret Street Cottage offers a peaceful setting for a relaxing break in the Highlands. On the shores of the Beauly Firth and close to the Cromarty and Moray Firths, the area is acknowledged as one of the best places in Europe for spotting bottlenose dolphins.

Avoch has a convenience store, cash point, take-away restaurants, a restaurant and pub, and a bus stop for access to the Black Isle and Inverness. With Inverness only twenty minutes away the cottage is ideally located for exploring the Highland capital, Loch Ness, Nairn-side, the Black Isle and the wider Scottish Highlands.

A traditional cottage, sensitively restored and well maintained and equipped. Also, an ideal location to be able to explore local walks and the rest of the Black Isle.
Ralph, Liverpool : 13th August, 2016

Extremely well appointed. Centrally situated for ease of travel through the Black Isle and into Inverness. Plenty of parking at the bottom of the street or in the large car park on the old curling pond.
Kerr, Lincs : 21st July, 2016

Extremely well and comfortably equipped. Good location for exploring the Black Isle, the Central Highlands, the Cairngorms, the Great Glen, and the eastern part of the Scottish coast, as far North as John o' Groats. Good food shopping facilities in Avoch and a useful bus service into Inverness
Derek, Toronto : 25th June, 2016

Warmth and cosiness of cottage, and its proximity to the beach/sea. The fact that there was milk in the fridge, and tea, coffee and shortbread in the kitchen. Kitchen was excellently equipped. Lounge was comfortable, with a wonderful range of games, books and DVDs.
Ali, Banchory : 20th June, 2016

The cottage was excellent in all areas of its accommodation and provision. Very very comfortable. Beds very comfortable. Well equipped bathroom, kitchen/ dining room spacious and excellent facilities. Little garden perfect. And - 2 minutes with the dogs to the beach - Flatcoated Retriever heaven!!
Lesley, Longframlington : 4th May, 2016

Very well equipped cottage with lovely decor and in great condition. The wood burning stove was a real bonus. Excellent location and good parking. Everything as stated couldn't fault it.
Susan, Bo'Ness : 26th March, 2016

As always, we love staying at this cottage. We have been coming for many years and this is always our first choice of accommodation in the area. It is a well equipped cottage; warm, cosy, nicely presented, well looked after and has an excellent location in Avoch.

Sara, London : 24th March, 2016

Clean, warm, comfortable, well equipped kitchen including plastic crockery for children, welcoming particularly the milk, bics and tea/coffee on arrival, back garden space felt safe and enclosed for children.
Donald, Lanark : 3rd November, 2015

The cottage was clean, comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The log burning stove in the living room was by far the best I've ever used. Having free kindling and logs for the week was a real bonus. Very friendly cat next door who likes to sit beside you if you are in the back garden. Chanonry Point for dolphin spotting is close by. There is also a very good RSPB hide near Cromarty. We had a great holiday and would recommend to friends. Many thanks.
Liz, Ardrossan : 17th October, 2015

The area was beautiful, a peaceful location. Accommodation 1st class, all mod cons, very homely.
Mandie, Ross-on-wye : 24th September, 2015

Lovely warm, clean, well equipped cottage in a great location for the Black Isle and Inverness.
Mandy, North Yorkshire : 24th August, 2015

Lovely homely cottage great for a get away from it all break. Close to Chanonry point famous for Dolphin watching. Close to shops and other amenities.
Lorraine, Bacup : 20th June, 2015

The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and had everything needed for an enjoyable stay. The area is great with many places of interest within very easy reach. It suited us (fairly elderly!) very well indeed. The local folk were very friendly. We had a very enjoyable holiday.
William, Edinburgh : 13th June, 2015

Cottage was great and had all the facilities we needed. Like Avoch and surrounding area and have stayed there before.
Tony, Edinburgh : 4th June, 2015

The cottage had a friendly feel and was very comfortable and well equipped. We were glad to be in the village and close to local shops. There's good walking from the house along the coast to Munlochy Bay in one direction and to Fortrose along the old railway line in the other.
Liz, Dunbar : 4th June, 2015

The cottage was situated in a village with some amenities and on a bus route. It was very well equipped, the owners put some thought into what guest might want. It was presented very well and was warm and had plenty of fuel for the log burner. The cottage was in a very good position for touring the Black Isle and the Highlands. There were lovely walks around Avoch, interesting bird watching and dolphin watching at Chanonry point. I was on a family history hunt so I spent a few days at the Highland Family History and Archive centre in Inverness which I found very useful.
Heather, Dublin : 4th May, 2015

The cottage is great, clean, cosy, warm in a good location for calm quite family activities. there is plenty of room for the children to play. it is very well equipped. the burning stove is a great feature and it was fantastic to just have the family relaxing in front of it with a glass of wine. thank you for the wine, shortbread, milk, coffee, etc. it was all very thoughtful and only added to the appeal of the cottage... over all a real home from home. I had a lovely time with my family in the cottage and would definitely recommend it.
