There is an enclosed garden so very safe for children - and there is lots for them to do in the area. Being by the sea, there are lovely beaches nearby and the city of Inverness is just 10 minutes away - you can go there by a regular bus service if you want to leave the car behind. The village of North Kessock has a tea shop, pub and shop, all within easy walking distance.
Loch Ness is 30 minutes away if you want to explore this beautiful loch and perhaps take a boat trip and try to catch sight of the infamous monster! There is lots to do in the area: dolphin cruises on the Moray Firth, a pony trekking centre 10 minutes away, lots of restaurants and traditional live music bars, the Black Isle Wildlife Park and golf courses at Inverness and Fortrose. This is a lovely cottage for a highland holiday.
