Hamilton Cottage, Tain, Ross-shire, The Highlands (Sleeps 1-2)

Hamilton Cottage is a traditional stone holiday home that offers self-catering accommodation for couples that are looking for rural bliss. The holiday home is set in the beautiful countryside by Tain and is an ideal base for exploring Ross-shire and the Scottish Highlands.

A detached sandstone cottage ideal for couples looking for a rural hideaway. Built in 1823 on the original estate which encompassed what is now Arabella Holdings, it has traditional charm combined with up-to-date style and convenience. Set on one level, the cottage comprises a double bedroom, shower room and an open plan living area where there is a modern kitchen. The luxurious leather sofa in the living room converts to a double bed if required.

Tastefully refurbished, the holiday cottage's style is clean and contemporary whilst retaining the feel of the traditional cottage at its heart with deep-set windows, vaulted wood ceiling and wood floors. There is a controllable electric heating and hot water system. There's also solid fuel central heating with an open fire for those chilly evenings and cosy winter nights. Outside there is a small area of the garden leading to a parking/seating area. Adjoining this is a good-sized grassed area sheltered by trees where there are a table and chairs for two to relax (barbeque also available).

Hamilton Cottage's location in Arabella Holdings means that it is very quiet (apart from the occasional sound of happy hens and their Rooster) with no traffic on the single-track roads around it, other than the very few residents of the holdings (this does include a working farm - so there may be an occasional tractor!) High-quality bed linen and towels are supplied and you will be greeted with a welcome pack consisting of everything you will need to make yourself at home right away including a fresh loaf of our traditionally slow-fermented, organic homemade bread and half a dozen eggs from our own free-range, organically kept hens or ducks (depending on your preference!).

Change over day is Saturday. Guests can fly to Inverness from various Airports in England and Scotland, where a car can be hired, or take a bus or train. The owners will collect guests from the bus or train (from Invergordon, Alness or Dingwall) for a charge should this be required. Availability - when checking availability note that the changeover day is normally Saturday so all bookings are shown on our calendar as inclusive of 2 Saturdays. Although it may not look like it, there is normally a full 7 day period available in between! If in doubt, please do give us a call.

Located between the Dornoch and Moray Firths the local area offers beautiful unspoilt beaches, coastal walks and an abundance of wildlife. In addition, there are unrivalled opportunities for hill walking, fishing, golf and general sightseeing. There are beautiful, award-winning, sandy beaches close by and the Easter Ross area is steeped in history. With some of the lowest recorded rainfall figures in Britain and without the dreaded 'West Coast Midges', this area is truly a wonderful place to explore at any time of the year.

Hamilton Cottage is perfect for a comfortable and memorable holiday, whether it is to unwind or energise, the accommodation and area will meet your needs.

Wherever you may wander during the day, Hamilton Cottage awaits your return in the evening, to relax and catch up on your favourite TV programme or perhaps to muse over the day's memories in your own pleasant garden, listening to the gentle sound of the evening birds as the sun sets the sky alight - all this over a long cool glass of your favourite tipple.
