Rental Home
This holiday home is, in our opinion, the best family holiday cottage in Nairn. Situated right on the beach, with plenty of space to run around outside. Everything you could possibly want is just a few minutes walk away. The house has all you need to be your home away from home, and almost everything is new… Wi-Fi, Nespresso coffee m/c, 2 TVs, Playstation, iPhone dock etc. New, clean and comfortable beds, cooker, washing machine, fridge freezer. There are bikes and toys for your use. Outdoor furniture to enjoy the fine Nairn weather is provided with extra tables & chairs in the shed. Some pets are allowed with prior permission. All pets to be paid for at £30 per pet and strict pet rules must be adhered to. A damage deposit/bond of £300 is included in the rental for bookings made ...This holiday home is, in our opinion, the best family holiday cottage in Nairn.

What a beautiful place to stay with the beach and harbour literally right on the doorstep. The cottage is clean and well presented and features an updated family shower room. It also has off road parking. The location is child friendly so ideal for any family to relax . We found it ideal as a hub to explore the highlands, for example going up the Cairngorms one day and then Culloden battlefield and Fort George the next. A week is not enough to see and do everything on offer in this lovely part of Scotland, so if you visit Dolphin View Cottage I guarantee you will want to return.

The beach is on the doorstep and a fantastic base for local walks and restaurants. The Sun dancer restaurant is excellent and less than 50 metres away! Excellent food, excellent service and stunning views. The cottage has everything you need for your stay.

Just as described clean and right on the beach with no road to cross. Fun water park for 4 - 10 year olds. Great fish & chip shop 50m away and 20m to good quality restaurant. The cafe by the water park has the best chips ever.Our little spaniel enjoyed the long walks in Culbin forest which again can be accessed right across the road and passed the caravan park. The enclosed patio was ideal and gets the evening sun. Neighboring properties vary in upkeep but all friendly enough if you keep a respectful noise level. They live there full time.

The location is close to the beach but it is in a very run down local authority estate. The property is now very rundown and needs major renovations. Stale smell throughout the property, stained carpets. The property is very over looked on via every window. The property was not COVID safe as their was multiple items left form the visitors before. When on the holiday we got at least 5 emails and 4 phone calls from the owner looking for a trades man to come to property for an non Emergancy visit. Not what you want during your holiday. This property is over priced for what it is.

We, a family of 4 adults, have just returned from a very enjoyable, relaxing week at Dolphin View. The cottage is ideally located, very close to the beach and marina, Being situated in a quiet sheltered hollow, it is a real sun trap. I have actually come back with a sun tan, despite the unseasonable weather this last week, sitting in the garden people watching as they walked along the sea front. The property is very well equipped with everything you need for a holiday. The second toilet & whb came in handy, especially with 3 females in tow. There are lots of coastal and riverside walks to enjoy - look out for the nesting swans on he river.

Dolphin View Cottage did not disappoint. Everything that you need for a stay in Nairn in terms of a comfortable rental property which we automatically felt very much at home in. The location is also fantastic with both the main Nairn and East Beaches just minutes from the house. We will most definitely be back!

I spent a week in Dolhin View with my two daughters, both in their 20s, for my godson's wedding. Having lived in Nairn for many years before moving away, it was wonderful to return and to have such comfortable, well-equipped accommodation...and that view! I loved sleeping with the window open at night, falling asleep and waking up to the noise of the sea! Lyda had a lovely welcome pack waiting for us - so many tasty things with a Scottish twist! Arrangements to access the cottage were faultless and the girls and I loved our stay. Thank you for everything, Lyda! :)

A clean, well equipped house situated very close to the beach. Lovely for children with the beach, playground (and great ice cream) close by. Lots to do and see in the area. The owners are most obliging and helpful.

About the neighborhood
Nairn has been a top holiday destination as far back as Victorian times, and the fresh clean air has not changed since then. Nairn has so much to offer the visitor, with its two beautiful white sandy beaches, two championship golf courses, the River Nairn and Findhorn close by for fishing, quaint shops, the Marina with its Dolphin spotting cruises, and all the wide open spaces every child's holiday memories are made of. The Links has a playground, brand new splash zone, tea rooms with James' homemade ice-cream, putting green, adventure playground, indoor swimming pool with gym facilities. There are walks and cycle ways along the seafront, up the river and around the town.
Getting around
Getting to Nairn is easy. If you are coming from afar, Inverness (Dalcross) Airport is just 8 miles from Nairn and you'll often fly over Dolphin View Cottage on the approach. Driving from 'down south' coming up the A9 to Inverness, turn off onto the A96 and you'll be in Nairn in 20 mins. Trains also run through Nairn and stop at Nairn's Victorian station where you can take and post a selfie before jumping in a taxi to Dolphin View, or walk the 15 min walk if your suitcase isn't too heavy. Nairn is well served by buses and trains along the main route from Inverness to Aberdeen. You won't need a car if you're staying in the town but a car is better for seeing the surrounding areas.
