    Garden Cottage is a delightful country cottage, situated in a quiet no through lane that leads directly down to a stunning sandy beach. It has been fully refurbished in 2018 and is attached to the owner’s traditional stone farmhouse, set in 16 acres and surrounded by fields, with horses and sheep grazing close by. Whilst rurally situated, it is just 1 mile from the thriving small town of Tain with all its facilities and amenities. This charming rose-clad cottage really does offer the best of both worlds.

    The cottage is beautifully presented throughout. The main living area is open-plan, and this lovely room looks out across the garden and has plenty of comfortable seating and a large dining table at one end. The fully fitted kitchen at the other end is extremely well-equipped and the bedrooms are attractively presented. As well as the cottage garden with sitting-out area, there is a further fully fenced paddock/field for visitor’s sole use. This provides an ideal space for dogs as well as a children’s games/play area.

    There are superb beach and forest walks direct from the property, and just 100 yards away is a stunning sandy beach which is completely unspoilt and invariably deserted. Tain Golf Course is situated on the periphery of the grounds, and the cottage is within easy walking distance of the club house, which is open to visitors. The thriving small town of Tain, Scotland’s oldest Royal Burgh, is built predominantly of mellow sandstone, and has a number of supermarkets as well as a good selection of pubs, restaurants, cafés and shops.

    For those who enjoy a ’wee dram’, Glenmorangie, Dalmore and Balblair distilleries are all close by and open to the public. The pretty seaboard villages of Balintore, Shandwick and Portmahomack are just a 10-minute drive away, and there are numerous sandy beaches within a short drive. Golfers are spoilt for choice with Tain, Alness and Golspie courses within close proximity, and the renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club is also nearby, which is ranked 5th in the world.

    Wildlife is abundant in the area with deer, otters, seals, dolphins and a wide variety of interesting and unusual birds all seen in the locality. The region is justly famed for its wild beauty and there is plenty to explore in every direction. The cottage is also close to the renowned North Coast 500 route. The area is known for its archaeological sites, and at the nearby Tarbat Discovery Centre there is a fascinating display of Pictish, Norse and Medieval artefacts. Beach 100 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Fantastic cottage, modern and clean. A paddock for your dog is a valued touch, our cockapoo loved running about in there. Bring a torch as there is no lighting for when you walk back to the cottage in the dark. Beautiful secluded beach on your doorstep!

    We stayed in Garden cottage for 2 weeks and could not have been happier with it, we have 4 children who loved staying here so much so we have booked to stay in the cottage again! It had everything we needed and the location is great to visit other areas and explore parts of the amazing Highlands, but also to explore the local area, it is a very pleasant walk into Tain or for a walk along the coastal path.

    Garden Cottage had everything we needed, very homely and comfortable.The welcome pack was much appreciated and very thoughtful. We had a wonderful week here and a great central point for exploring the beautiful countryside. Molly the dog had a great time running about the enclosed garden and meeting all the rabbits and horses!

    I have been visiting Tain for the last 13 years and Garden Cottage has been the best place I have stayed. For a property that is pet friendly it was immaculate inside which is a rarity these days. The foreshore is literally 150 yards away with miles of shoreline to walk dogs, kids etc. Inside the Cottage everything you will ever need for your stay is provided, the kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans, crockery, kitchen appliances including a dishwasher, towels and bedding are all provided, hoover, ironing board, and even a dog cage is provided. all this and gorgeous views in every direction, what more can you ask for? Will be booking Garden Cottage again for next years visit.
