    We had a lovely time. Would highly recommend. The beach is immediately opposite the house. We saw dolphins almost every day. Our 6 year old says it was the best holiday EVER!!

    Location was great, but almost all of the potential view is blocked due to trees and camper vans. WiFi was very difficult to log on to and the camping & caravan club on whose service the cottage is piggybacked on to, advised us as best they could. The settee’s are not particularly comfortable and the cottage wasn’t particularly clean! In saying all those negatives we really enjoyed our holiday and the area and would return to Rosemarkie again.

    Have stayed at The Boathouse several times. It's a great base for Dolphin watching at Chanonry point.

    I've stayed here twice now and will definitely do so again. The only thing that is not perfect about the house is the lack of towels. Having to take a bath towel uses valuable space in carry-on baggage. Wouldn't be so bad if you have hold luggage I suppose. However there's no hand towel in the kitchen or bathroom either. Also a spare bath mat would be useful as it's almost impossible not to get it saturated when showering. These are minor annoyances though, and everything else is so perfect about this house :-)

    House is on the Firth, garden, road and you are on the beach. About one mile to the point to watch dolphins. Great. Second bedroom has bunk beds.
