• About Cross Tides

    The property has economy 7 electric central heating and comprises:
    Lounge 1: With open fire, Freeview TV and comfortable seating.
    Kitchen: With electric oven, induction hob, dishwasher and washing machine.

    All electric, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Initial fuel for open fire included. Travel cot available. Welcome pack.

    Enclosed front and rear garden with patio and garden furniture. Parking (1 car). No smoking. NB: There is direct access onto the shoreline via the front garden.

    Cross Tides is the quintessential seaside cottage. Situated in a quiet backwater lane in the fishing village of Hilton and with gardens that open directly onto the shoreline, this pretty 19th Century stone cottage is ideal for couples. There is a cosy lounge downstairs with welcoming open fire and a second lounge upstairs with stunning sea views, ideal for sitting and watching the ever changing seascape and the small fishing boats along the shoreline. There are two pretty bedrooms and a modern shower room on the ground floor. The terrace garden is attractively set with tubs and flowering plants. A small gate opens onto the beach and small fishing harbour.

    The village of Hilton is one of several pretty ‘seaboard’ villages that straddle this lovely Ross-shire coastline. They all possess beautifully kept seafronts and little harbours, with rocky outcrops interspersed with stunning sandy beaches. This coastline is completely unspoilt and provides an idyllic seaside holiday away from the crowds.

    Dolphins and porpoises are regularly seen in the bay and even the occasional basking shark and Beluga whale have been spotted close to shore. Just a short walk from the cottage there is an excellent pub, restaurant, café and a small local store. The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Cycling, hill walking, golf, fishing, horse riding, sailing, canoeing and surfing are all enjoyed locally. Within ten minutes’ drive lies the oldest Royal Burgh of Scotland. Predominantly built of local mellow sandstone, Tain is a charming historic town and offers an excellent selection of small shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs as well as a wide variety of sporting and recreational facilities, including tennis courts, golf club and bowling club, all of which are available to visitors. This part of the Highlands is easily accessible for exploring the whole of the north.

    The cottage is lovely and comfortable, well equipped and very clean. The location is just perfect, beautiful view from the cottage itself and plenty of wonderful drives and lovely places to visit. Supermarkets fairly close, so no problems shopping. Perfect place to relax and set aside everyday worries. That's priceless. Will be back again.

    Cross Tides is a lovely cottage. The welcome pack was outstanding, and the upstairs lounge was fantastic to relax in and view the Moray firth. We would not hesitate to return to it

    We have been to Cross Tides before and it didn’t disappoint. Lovely thoughtful welcome pack including treats for the dogs! Which they loved. The location is excellent. One small thing is that the outside tap could have a bit of hose on it, so if the dogs find something unsavoury to roll in on their lovely walks, it could easily be washed off before bringing them back inside.

    We felt at home at this lovely little cottage. The location and view are priceless, the kitchen is well-equipped, the bed was a guarantee for peaceful sleep, and the welcome package as well as the message on the chalkboard made us feel very welcome. The living room would benefit from a little love, but the cosy fire and the dolphins and seals we spotted made more than up for it. We loved every day of our stay, and we would definitely recommend this place to everyone xx
