“Exceptional Accommodation”
Reviewed June 20, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

No chance of disappointment staying at Ard Na Mara, what a lovely house and perfectly situated 5 minutes by car from Nairn Centre and the awesome beaches. You're at home from the minute you enter and will be amazed at the space. The rear lounge in particular is a great bonus if your kids want to use the included X Box in the front room. Our 2 year old was too young but there were also plenty of other toys to keep her occupied. The house has everything you could want on your holiday. Furnishings are comfortable and good quality, especially the comfortable beds, so a good nights sleep is guaranteed. There is a large Sainsbury for shopping and good and quiet roads to visit other towns nearby. Brodie Country store on the Forres Road is well worth a stop for fabulous, great value cakes and drinks. If you're a golfer, the Nairn and Dunbar course looks well worth a round too and all in all we had a great week especially with a lovely, comfortable house to return to.

“Just perfect!”
Reviewed September 25, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had 6 adults and 2 kids staying in the house for 2 nights and it was absolutely perfect! 2 lovely sitting rooms (one with an x-box which = happy kids), brilliant sized kitchen and dining table, great garden (with a trampoline which also = happy kids!) and all the bedrooms were super comfy and a good size!
The whole house was fresh and modern. The location was great....close to the beach and shops etc.
If I ever head back up to Nairn, Ard Na Mara will be the first place I try to book!

“Excellent family house ”
Reviewed July 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We booked this for our summer holiday in July. We have stayed in various houses throughout Scotland and I really think this was the best for us as a family. Aileen the owner was extremely helpful and even left a welcome pack - lovely thought. The beds were the comfiest I have slept in. The 2nd lounge was a great asset for the kids to watch their own programmes. There is a park behind the house for the kids. We explored various places while staying here, we would definitely stay here again xx

“Spacious, excellent decor, facilities and comfort.”
Reviewed September 16, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Ard Na Mara is an ideal location in Nairn for a holiday along the Moray Firth. The house is spacious, well furnished with all the facilities needed for a relaxing stay and entertaining. It is an easy walk into Nairn and most importantly for some of our party, close to Dunbar Golf Course. Locally there are good restaurants and sights to see, including the beach and harbour. The house is suited to families with children or a party of 8 adults. The large wrap around lounge is an exceptional feature for relaxing.

“Great holiday at Ard Na Mara Holiday House”
Reviewed July 1, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Ard Na Mara House for 2 weeks in June 2016. The house is located in a nice and quiet street in the outskirts of Nairn. It was very spacious and furbished to a very high standard. The interior of the house showed great attention to detail and it was an ideal base for day trips to the countryside (Moray coastline, Speyside, Cairngorms). We really enjoyed our holiday!

“Great long weekend at the Ard na Mara”
Reviewed June 9, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

As golfers the location was excellent. The house was lovely with nice size rooms and a lovely sun trap in the back garden. Well equipped, although a radio in the kitchen would be a good addition! Planning to book again for same week next year!!
