On arrival we found the cottage perfectly clean & in excellent condition - no problems in findin Nicol Terrace. Location is excellent with the waterfront only a few minutes walk. All facilities were very good - TV reception sometimes a bit hit or miss. We would certainly stay again if in the Black Isle. Brian Norval
Excellent place to stay in Cromarty on the Black Isle

This cottage had everything you need and more lots of extras - particularly the fact that a hairdryer and umbrellas are supplied. In an ideal location in Cromarty. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely location, would stay here again.

A cosy, well equipped cottage which was perfect for a family of 2 adults and a teenager. The wi-fi connection was excellent during our stay and enabled us to load photos onto Facebook, etc with no difficulties. We had no mobile phone signal in the cottage which was bliss! We particularly appreciated the BBQ provided and the outdoor patio space at the rear of the property which was a lovely space to eat out in after a busy day dolphin spotting, And it was helpful to have an efficient washing machine and separate tumble dryer during our stay. The kitchen includes a dining table, although we didn't use the table because we either ate outside or visited local eateries in the village. The cottage is located in a quiet courtyard type setting just a few steps away from the seafront which offers fabulous views of the Sutors and Cromarty Firth. There are some lovely walks from and around Cromarty which we enjoyed. And the local pub, the harbour with the Royal Hotel and SutorsCreek restaurant are all within easy walking distance of the cottage. Whilst walking round the village we found the locals to be friendly and welcoming, always happy to pass the time of day and have a chat about village life or things to do in the area. A lovely bunch of people! Excellent information on the local area was provided in the cottage so no need to seek out a local tourist information centre, and the owners were friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this cottage and hope, one day, to return.

Excellent, quiet family home in lovely location in a very friendly town. The house has everything you'd need. Cromarty itself is full of hidden delights, try the pirate graveyard, not far from the cottage.

The cottage was fantastic. The only difficult thing was that the bunk bed, though an adult size, did not have enough height for the person on the bottom bunk to sit up properly. Other than that the cottage was very comfy, thank you.
Cosy cottage in quiet location.

A well positioned, probably former fisherman's cottage perhaps? The cottage was neat, tidy and clean with the basic amenities for a reasonably comfortable stay.
Great stay in Cromarty

Just what we needed for the Black Isle fiddle weekend. The most friendly and helpful people. Lovely neighbours and the local shop went the extra mile for us when we needed a tick remover. Great weekend. Thanks.
Perfect location for old Cromarty

This was a good 'find', brilliantly situated for Cromarty Fishertown, the shore and walks up the Sutor. The house is well equipped and has reliable wifi. (Mobile phone calls require a short walk round the corner). The information provided by the owners, clearly backed by a depth of local knowledge, is excellent - and they responded very helpfully to our direct queries about the heating. There is sheltered outdoor space that catches the sun for much of the day and, even though this sacrifices a sea view, it was relaxing to lie in bed listening to the waves!

The house on Nicol Terrace was well appointed and warm and the welcome pack was just what we needed! Furnishings were comfortable and in excellent condition and the heating was very effective and responsive. The house is in an excellent position in Cromarty and the peace and stillness was wonderful. We had everything we needed to make our stay a happy and comfortable one, including hot water bottles (not needed during a wonderful September week!) and we certainly intend to return-
