Situated in the ancient Fishertown area of Nairn (pop. 11,000) founded by Royal Charter in 1220 Nairn has two main beaches both two minutes walk from the cottage; there are also miles of sandy beaches extending east to the Royal Society for Protection of Birds Reserve and beyond to Culbin Forest & Nature Reserve.
The Harbour, marina, river mouth and beaches are all two minutes walk away at the edge of Fishertown. Trips to see the unique Moray Firth Dolphins run regularly from the harbour (one of only two colonies in the UK!); they can also be seen from many vantage points along the shore.
Nairn is also fortunate in having two championship Golf courses (both beside the sea) one a few minutes walk from the cottage!
Also beside the beach and two minutes walk from the cottage is Links park – promenade, playground, cricket pitch, putting green, swimming pool.
Nairn is ideal as a touring centre being close to the Grampian Mountains and Aviemore, Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Findhorn Foundation, Culloden Battlesite, Inverness, The Speyside Whisky Trail, Cromarty & the Black Isle. There is so much to offer with Nairn as a base – all you have to do is enjoy it!
Currently Nairn offers a wonderful and varied range of shops, restaurants, take-aways, bars, social activities, sports and recreation. There is a wide range of Folk nights, ceilidhs, as well as annual Books & Arts Festival, International Jazz festival, Highland Games,
