A dog-friendly retreat near the North Coast 500 route, a 516-mile scenic trail, ideal for couples seeking a luxurious break in the Highlands. Close to a gorgeous beach and plenty to see in the local area.
Located on a farm near the village of Nigg, this lodge is ideally placed for those looking to explore what the Highlands has to offer. Numerous sandy beaches can be found nearby, including Portmahomack and Balintore, and there are plenty of coastal walks and trails in the area. There is also a small seasonal ferry that runs from Nigg to Cromarty, so if you are looking to cut your drive time to the Black Isle and Inverness then it is well worth taking advantage of. The nearby town of Tain is home to Glenmorangie Distillery, as well as a golf course, and further north lies the town of Dornoch with its various cafes, gift shops and must-visit beach.
The lodge is accessed via the glass entrance door to the front, which leads into an open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. The focal point of the room is definitely the cosy wood burner in the lounge, where there is also a Smart TV and Bluetooth speaker. Helpfully, binoculars have been provided for when you are keen to do some dolphin spotting from the comfort of the cabin. The dining area consists of a breakfast bar that seats four people and beautifully divides the lounge and kitchen sections. The kitchen itself is compact yet contains everything you could need during your stay, including an electric oven and hob, combi microwave oven, fridge/freezer, coffee machine and dishwasher. A welcome pack is provided for guests, and your dog will not miss out on getting a small gift too. The king-size bedroom has been tastefully furnished and decorated, with robes provided for guests. The shower room with WC and washbasin contains toiletries for guests, with nice touches to enhance your stay including an anti-mist mirror and automatic light.
Outside, the decked garden area contains garden furniture and a firepit, as well as a glorious bubbling hot tub that guests are sure to love. Guests are provided with non-glass items for use in the hot tub, so you can enjoy a flute of prosecco whilst you enjoy the spectacular sea views from the tub. Parking for up to two cars is available at the lodge. The cliff edge is some distance away from the property and is fenced off for extra peace of mind, but please ensure dogs are supervised at all times as there is also livestock on the farm all year round. This property has a private water supply.
