Bay View Portmahomack Self Catering Cottage by the Sea Family friendly Luxury Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage in Portmahomack, The Highlands, Scotland


Lovely comfortable cottage with wonderful views in picturesque Portmahomack in the Highlands. 3 bedrooms. Panoramic sea views from living room and balcony. Sandy beach, golf, walks, harbour, sunsets. Sunny climate. Great for all ages and seasons.

Welcome to Bay View Cottage, our Seaside Self Catering Cottage in Scenic Portmahomack in Scotland
 
Bay View Cottage has a fantastic location in the lovely seaside village of Portmahomack, 45 minutes north of Inverness.  The cottage was built in the 1850s but was completely renovated and extended in 2011.  We have fantastic views from the back garden, living room and balcony. Portmahomack is ideal for those who want a relaxing holiday with lovely scenery, but it also offers golf, walking and watersports for the more energetic!  Portmahomack sits in a crescent shaped bay of the Dornoch Firth, and the back garden and balcony of the cottage actually face west over the bay and enjoy lots of sun and lovely sunsets over the water .
 
Our facilities
Bay View Cottage is very comfortable and equipped to a high standard. The house was built in the 1850s and extended in 2011.  On the ground floor there are 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and a twin), bathroom, toilet, utility room and back door to a small sheltered back garden with lovely views.
Upstairs is a bright living room and kitchen/dining area. The kitchen is well equipped including fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a dining table for 6. The living room is comfortable, and has a multi-fuel stove, TV and wireless broadband, and the views from the living room are wonderful.  If you're feeling lazy, you can just sit and watch the comings and goings at the harbour, the beach, the birds, the boats, sometimes even dolphins, and the occasional waterskier or windsurfer.
 
From the spacious balcony the views are even better - a panorama of the distant mountains, the beach, the harbour,  and across the Dornoch Firth to the hills of Sutherland.   The balcony has an outdoor table and chairs, and from the balcony there is an external stair down to the back garden and patio area, which has a little barbecue and seating.
 
The cottage is bright and cheerful and is decorated with the seaside in mind.  It is very comfortable at any time of year. Heating is by electric combined storage & panel heaters keeping the house warm all year round, and there is also a multi fuel stove.
 
Electricity, bedding and towels are provided.
 
Pets are welcome by arrangement if they are well behaved.
 
Our Highland Location and Things to Do
Bay View Cottage is located within the village of Portmahomack, Easter Ross, in the North of Scotland, 9 miles from Tain and 40 miles from Inverness. The cottage sits on an elevated position above the sea front, yet is only a minute's walk from the harbour and the sandy beach.
Portmahomack has a beautiful crescent shaped sandy beach in a sheltered bay, and "The Port" also has a picturesque harbour, golf course, a pub (Castle Hotel), a village shop, the renowned Oyster Catcher restaurant, churches, village hall and tearoom, a football pitch, and childrens' playgrounds. The area is of archaeological interest and The Pictish Discovery Centre in the village is excellent.
There are lots of walks in and around the village, or out to the Tarbetness lighthouse or along the coast from nearby Rockfield village.
Young children and the young at heart of all ages will love the sandy beach and the little rock pools at the far end of the beach.
For golfers, there is a well looked after 9 hole golf course in the village, with £20 daily or weekly green fees. There are also more challenging courses nearby, including Tain and Royal Dornoch.
Portmahomack is ideal for sea fishing and there is also fresh water fishing nearby. Bird watchers find lots of interest in Portmahmack and along the coastline either side of the peninsula
