    A cosy, comfortable place to stay for quiet, relaxing holiday. Beach is just a few yards over the very quiet road. Great walks nearby. Would have appreciated a washing machine for towels (bought our own as requested, but ran out.) Also needs more tea cloths (provided). Difficult to dry hand- washed items as the washing line needs a post and notices specifically ask visitors not to dry items on radiators. (Nearest laundry Inverness, so we borrowed from a friend who lives nearby.) All a bit inconvenient at the time, but would definitely consider staying here again.

    We had a lovely holiday in The Boat House. The cottage was very comfortable with lots of space and was warm and cosy, though the weather outside was really cold the week we were there. We had lovely views from all the windows but they could be lost to some degree once campers were on the site next door and blocking some views, but it wouldn't detract from the area and easy access to the beach. We would certainly come to the Boat House and Rosemarkie again.

    The reason we would not go back is due to there being only one "normal" bed. We were aware it had bunk beds before we booked, but as Brownie Leaders were happy for one of us to sleep on the bottom bunk. In the event we found the bunk to be uncomfortable. We ended up moving the mattresses to the lounge. Whilst this then made for a comfortable sleep, it was not ideal considering the amount we had paid for the cottage. We loved loved loved the location, appreciated the WiFi we could buy from the caravan site, enjoyed the peace and quiet and the local bistro. Unfortunately the local pub was not serving food all week, which would have been a problem if you were relying on it for meals. The owner was very helpful and quick to deal with a maintenance issue. A beautiful part of Scotland, which we will return to. The dolphin watching was awesome, just a shame the otters went into hiding!
