On the waters' edge

The Old Salmon Bothy is a superb shoreline cottage in a beautiful location. This sweet cottage sits snugly against a sandstone outcrop which protects it from the north winds. The decked patio, accessible from the living area, provides a lovely place to relax and watch the ever-changing patterns on the sea across the Moray Firth, home to bottlenose dolphins, seals, porpoises and the occasional minke whale. Fisherman can sometimes be seen checking their creels and one visitor was lucky enough to see an otter at close quarters coming up the slipway!

The cottage is warm and has double glazing and a wood burning stove as well as modern electric heating; so cosy in all seasons. Adjacent to the cottage is a slipway which could be used to launch kayaks or a small boat. There is private parking for 2 cars.
