“A lovely cottage near the beach and harbour”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Dolphin View Cottage is in Fishertown, the old part of Nairn near the harbour with lots of interesting lanes and twisty routes through. It faces across a grassy area to the beach and we did see dolphins in the Moray Firth. There is even a pair of binoculars on the windowsill if you want a closer view. We were out and about during the day as there are lots of interesting places nearby, and also enjoyed evening walks along the beach. The cottage was well equipped, very clean, and everything worked. The beds were very comfortable. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by a neighbour who looks after the cottage. There was space for one car directly on the property, and there was also plenty of nearby parking for extra cars. The owner was very helpful while we were booking and clearly takes a pride in the property.

“Ideal house ideal location couldn't ask for any better.”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

Been going to Dolphin view twice a year for a number of years and love it. The house is lovely and clean in a great location for beach and walks and views over the moray firth.
Would definitely recommend the house. Good base for exploring the highlands.

“wonderful getaway”

We have just returned from our stay and the cottage had everything we required to make our holiday great. The cottage was warm and cosy on our arrival, beds all made and lovely and clean. Towels and bed linen being included in the let is a bonus.

The location was ideal, near to the beach, parks and nice walks. I have 3 small children and the enclosed garden was ideal. there is also off road parking at the back.

I would definitely recommend and also may return.......
