Everything for history lovers, wild life,we have a great wild life park.Dolphin watch at Chanonry point, take the Pictish trail,or call into the old historic buildings and the ruins in Fortrose, such as the majestic catherdral.There are the museums ,Groam House in Rosemarkie the Court house in Cromarty all free entry. The 'Clootie' well,even today folk believe in the wonders of  the spring waters.Stop at the Pantry for  refreshments, you will not be able to resist their baking.You still have the opportunity to catch up on  time by taking the Nigg ferry across the firth.  Or better still stop over,the Isle is a perfect spot to visit all the highlands, so give yourself a break,save unpacking and packing,rest enjoy the sights and sounds of this magical place. Our home is modern  affording  the luxury of being very airy and well insulated.We have some of the best views overlooking the Udale bay and the Cromarty Firth,  All our rooms have views, woodland,  farmland, in the spring watch the lambs, then gaze in awe at Ben Wyvis.The firth, watch the cruise liners arrive and depart during the summer, the oil rigs towed in by tugs for repair . Perfect for catching sight of  migrating birds including; wigeon,geese,goldeneye,cormorants,red breasted mergansers,red shanks,curlews,dunlins,and oyster catchers.
