Atholl Cottage was attractive, clean, comfortable and well-equipped for our short stay in Nairn. The sun came out and we were able to enjoy sitting out on the terrace. It's well placed for a walk into the town, across the links or along the beach. Nairn is a great location for trips to Culloden, Fort George, Inverness, Elgin, Loch Ness, the beautiful nearby beaches, dolphin viewing and much more. The owners clearly take pride in making this house a welcoming holiday home and they were very helpful in advance of our stay.

The property is in a great location, right on the Links and a few minutes from superb beaches, the town centre, and children's play areas. The house was very well presented - spotlessly clean, freshly decorated, and furnished to a high standard.

The cottage was an ideal place to stay as practically on the beach. Everything was immaculate and floor coverings, decor etc were new. Would recommend to anyone travelling with or without kids.

Perfect base for a highland holiday - We received a warm friendly welcome and found the home to exceed our expectations. The beautiful views from every window add a lovely atmosphere to this well appointed and roomy house. After busy days exploring it was lovely to put our feet up in comfort, and we weren't disappointed at the local restaurants if we didn't feel like cooking. Our favourite way to start and end each day was with a lovely long walk on the beautiful beach and we'd certainly book to stay again next time we visit scotland

Lovely house, newly decorated & had everything we needed. Location is fantastic just a short walk from restaurants, shops & the beach. Having the living room, kitchen & dining room upstairs allows you to make the most of the lovely views. We were lucky to be the first guests & couldn't fault it. Would book again. Thanks.

Clean, warm and comfortable with superb views. What more could you ask for?

This is a top level rental property. We were met at the cottage by our host Carmel who gave us the guided tour. Everything works and the beds are very comfortable..big plus! No coin meters or any of that nonsense. The cottage is perfectly situated on the Links with the seafront 50 metres away. Excellent cafés, bars and restaurants an easy walk from the doorstep. Carmel told us of good walks and cycle paths near Nairn. Superb location for young families with links, putting green, play park with cafe and swimming pool all within 10 minute walk. We had a super holiday.

Fantastic location and accommodation

The house is situated at the popular Nairn beach and a fantastic location for discovering the highlands. The house is really great and the owners made a massive effort to make us feel very welcome. This is the perfect holiday destination and accommodation and the kids loved it, too. Thank you! We hope to be back.

Great property

We had a lovely stay in Gordon and Carmel's cottage. It is furnished to a high standard and had everything we needed. There are maps and leaflets about the area.

The views are spectacular from the windows and the beach and restaurants are very close by. It is also a very peaceful cottage. There are lots of places to go and great scenery on the way there and further north. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage and Gordon and Carmel were very helpful.

We had a lovely stay at Gordon's house in Nairn, the location is fantastic, close to the beach, and a short walk into town. Everything was as expected. It's a quiet area, which we liked, and parking was easy. Gordon was a great host, he met us at the house on arrival, and provided some basic provisions. I would definitely recommend, and if we're in the area again, I would certainly check to see if the house was available for us.

Stayed here for 3 nights Gordon was a great host and the house was in a wonderful position right at the top of the links and only 5 minutes walk from the high street in Nairn. The house was well equipped and had everything that you need for a holiday.

Absolutely wonderful! Highly recommended.

Atholl Cottage in Nairn was beyond expectations! It is in a fantastic location with gorgeous sea views across the green. A great place to pass the time people and dog watching! The cottage itself is lovely, surprisingly spacious and beautifully renovated inside. It feels very peaceful and relaxing. It was absolutely immaculate and Gordon and Carmel's attention to detail cannot be faulted. Very thoughtful little touches such as the special teas, the whisky cake and the milk in the fridge. The information provided by the hosts was informative and helpful. They have really thought of everything! This was a really special time for our family as Nairn holds special childhood memories for my husband and sister-in-law. Nairn is a quaint, lovely seaside location made all the more special for us by staying in such a wonderful cottage. We really didn't want to leave. Definitely recommended.

We really, really loved it

Me and my family (5 persons) stayed at Gordon's for 5 nights and we really, really loved it. It is an absolutely lovely cottage with enough space for all of us. You have nice views from the window from which you can the the beach. The kitchen is outstandingly well equipped. The whole flat was well equipped. (washing machine and tumble dryer, make up mirror with special light, sand moulds for kids to play at the beach, etc.). Upon arrival Gordon was already waiting for us and showed us around. We felt very welcome and we had a great time in Nairn, which is a cute little town directly at the beach, close to Inverness, Loch Ness and the Cairngorms. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic Long Weekend

We had a fantastic long weekend stay at Atholl Cottage for a golfing break in July. The property is superbly situated - quiet, with great views but walking distance to everything you need. The layout is superb and it is so well equipped with absolutely everything you could think off including a great kitchen and lovely tea and coffee making facilities. Gordon and Carmel were perfect hosts and we'd have no hesitation recommending a stay at Atholl Cottage.

Phantastic Place To Be

Von außen sieht das Haus durchschnittlich aus, aber die inneren Werte sind großartig: Die Ausstattung ist komplett, die Einrichtung übertrifft die Beschreibung bei Weitem, denn die Möbel und Aussicht aus dem ersten Stock ist umwerfend. Der Master bedroom mit begehbarem Kleiderschrank und Bad / Toilette ensuite ist umwerfend! Da die Besitzer Carmel und Gordon sehr hilfsbereit und herzlich sind, werden wir unbedingt wieder kommen.

Wonderful seaside town! Wonderful cottage! And wonderful hosts!! The Duncan''s went above and beyond to make our stay at their delightful cottage an awesome stay and experience. Their cottage was clean, spacious and even prettier than the pictures. The beach is seconds away and is a great beach that goes on for miles. Perfect for running and walking. We would highly recommend this home and hope one day to be back!!

Spent four nights here at the end of August and loved the property

The house was very clean and the situation looking over the beach was perfect. We liked the fact that the public rooms were upstairs, all with a stunning view. Bedroom with the bunk beds made it pretty cramped for two adults, but we knew that when we booked, so not a complaint. Everything else, lounge, kitchen and dining room, were perfect for six adults. Would be perfect for two kids with mum and dad and grandparents, or even two couples rather than three. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery, cutlery and a few food items to get us started. We wouldn't hesitate to use it again. Thanks to host Gordon who met us when we arrived and showed us round.

This cottage is the perfect place to stay in Nairn, right on the Links and very easy to get to from the main roads. Inside, the cottage is cosy and comfortable, and felt just like home. Thanks to Gordon and Carmel for a great long weekend.
