Beach Cottage B&B

3 Alturlie Point Allanfearn
Tel: 01463 231676
Beach Cottage B&B is located on the shores of the Moray Firth 6 miles from Inverness City Centre offering accommodation with stunning sea views. The B&B is owned and run by Brad Norris and his Border Terrier dog, Branston. The B&B is an old cottage which has been extended and refurbished to a high standard with two en suite rooms, the Moray and the Beauly. Moray is in the new part of the cottage and has french doors with a Juliet balcony and offers panoramic views of the Moray Firth from Inverness to the South West around to Fort George and Chanonry Point to the North East. Beauly is in the old part of the cottage and offers similar views but they can be seen from the comfort of seats in the bay window. The cottage is in a semi-rural location with no access to public transport so travelling with a car is essential.

Janey welcomed us to Beach Cottage B&B with a warm smile after our long journey. We felt right at home with her hospitality. She prepared a takeaway breakfast for us the following morning as we had to travel early. It had everything we needed such as condiments, a thermos full of hot coffee, even hard boiled eggs. We really enjoyed our 3 other breakfasts, with eggs prepared how we liked. The room was cozy with a view of the Moray Firth. We had a very pleasant stay and would come back if we travel this way again

Tips:

We visited nearby Fort George and really enjoyed it.

I do not think you would find a more engaging host than Janey. The house was immaculate, sitting alongside the sea, so views were so impressive. Food was very good and superbly presented, even the gales did not dampen our experience.

Tips:

Fort George and Culloden nearby are a must. As for evening meals, we drove up to Cawdor Tavern who have a good varied menu and excellent selection of beers, in a friendly atmosphere.

We had a fantastic stay of 4 nights at the Beach Cottage B&B. Janet and Monty (of course) are realy wonderful and friendly hosts. Everything was nice, clean and every detail was made with love. The view out of the room was awesome and the personal made breakfast delicious. Janeys Cottage was our first B&B on our trip, and she set the bar very high. At the end, no other B&B was able to reach it. Thank you Janey (and Monty ;-) )!

Janey gave us good tips. We loved Glen Affric. And to see the salmons jump at the Falls of Shin was an great experience

Awesome location set way off the main drag and situated right on the water. The hostess was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent. Will highly recommend. My only complaint was the tight stairwell. Dragging luggage up it is a little challenging.

Tips:

Staying at the Beach Cottage sets you in a perfect location to see the Culloden Battlefield, Clava Cairns, and halfway between the airport and the main city of Inverness. I recommend eating at the Cheese Pantry just up the road as well for lunch.

Tips:

Its good to stay there with a own car, because the B+B is in the bay and not in the city. The indian restaurant was a good tip and we drive to Findhorn and see seals, which play in the sea. Nice and wonderful.

An amazing B&B in the most perfect location. We stayed for two nights (wasn’t enough in my opinion) and everything was just fantastic. The owner is the sweetest person and very thoughtful about every single one of her guests, the rooms were extremely clean and offered more than we could have asked. The breakfast was amazing and this comes from a foodie so i don’t say this lightly! Last but not least we loved Monty the happiest dog on earth with the most beautiful eyes. We would love to visit again! Highly recommended

We have traveled across Europe staying at a variety of B&B, hotels (Hilton), and Beach Cottage was our favourite over the course of these 7 weeks. Gail did an amazing job ensuring our breakfast was made to order. Both Janey & Gail worked efficiently to ensure our stay met our expectations. I felt as though I've known them for a long time. We weren't just treated as a guest, we felt like family.

Tips:

Definitely visit Urqhart Castle. Looking for a sweater made in Scotland? check out Johnstons at Elgin. They have a mill on site and you don't HAVE to spend a lot for a good sweater. We didn't have time for a tour of the mill but found the sweaters we were looking for.

Stunning location by the Firth. Peaceful and private in a seemingly remote location but is only 15 min from central Inverness. B & B cottage has two rooms available. We stayed in Beauly & the view from our bay window was superb. The low ceiling in shower was no problem! Our host Janey was very friendly & made us feel most welcome. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer! A nice place to chill out.

Tips:

Very close to Culloden Battlefield. Afterwards make sure to visit the Clava Cairns & the nearby viaduct. Urquhart Castle & Loch Ness are on the other side of Inverness. Between B&B and Inverness there is a shopping centre with Tesco, fuel & cafes.

We stayed in the Beauly room that was very comfortable with a sitting area to view the Moray Firth. The entire property was impeccably clean, warm and inviting - this is a lovely place to stay and relax. The view is simply gorgeous. Janey was a warm and welcoming host and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast is served in the dining room, and was substantial and of excellent quality - simply delicious. Very conveniently located near the airport, the city and other local attractions. Would highly recommend and would stay here again next time we visit Inverness. We have placed a favourable review on Tripadvisor.

We had a wonderful stay at the Beach Cottage. We rented both rooms (there were four of us) and both rooms were terrific. One had better views of the water but it should be evident which one in the pictures. Wonderful place to stay. Breakfast was amazing too. Both Janey and Gail were terrific. We had such a lovely time and will definitely return if/when we return to Scotland.

Tips:

We loved Janey's recommendation of The Cawdor Tavern for dinner. It was amazing and the village of Cawdor is so nice. Of course, Culloden Battlefield and Clava Cairns are a must. We wished we had checked out the area around Nairn but ran out of time.

Tips:

Don't go to 'The Mustard Seed' Restaurant! Service is poor, food and wines nothing special and even tough we had a reservation the offered table was bad. Try instead the 'River House' Restaurant - but you definitely need a reservation and you must be fond of fish and seafood. And listen to Janey's recommendations.

This B&B is located a short drive from Inverness but is a world apart. The setting is romantic, beautiful, relaxing and simply the best place to stay. We stayed for two nights and will return. The breakfasts were deliciously prepared with several cold and hot options. The owner is delightful and very helpful with recommendations and made reservations for us for the Loch Ness Boat tour and. The restaurants/pubs she recommended were excellent choices. If you want to stay in a most unique place with beautiful views and sunsets outside your window, then this is the place to stay.

Tips:

Take a boat tour on the Loch Ness, Timotin Whisky Distillery, and any recommendations for dinner that is recommended are excellent. There is much to do and see in the area.

Plenty of choice in Inverness especially alongside the river which is a short ride. There is also an adequate pub next to the retail park which had a large supermarket, cinema etc about 5 mins ride away.

A lovely B & B situated in a stunning part of Inverness. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left nothing was too much trouble. Our Host Brad was attentive, always willing to advise us on local amenities that he thought we might like. He keeps the B & B immaculate and we enjoyed our stay immensely. The room was exactly as pictured on the website, clean and very comfortable. The views are just breath taking and we would definitely love to return in the future. Thank you Brad and Branston for such a fabulous trip I hope the new owners are as great as you.

Tips:

Cawdor Tavern served lovely food, the fresh fruit pavlova was amazing!!! Chanonary Point - This was approximately 30 minute drive from the B & B. Parking can be an issue so arrive early but it is worth visiting as Dolphins swim through here daily. This was the highlight of our visit as they come so close to the shore. Will definitely be back in the future.

We will 100% be coming back to Inverness to stay at the Beach Cottage again! 10/10!

Well done on achieving such high standards. Beach Cottage B&B suited my needs perfectly. I would have no hesitation in returning.

Tips:

Your host will provide all the info you need to know about the local areas including places to find good food. The location is fairly isolated but fantastic if your intention is to get away from from built up areas; and therefore having your own transport is a basic requirement. Otherwise a taxi to Inverness will set you back in the region of £20 (one way). The standard of the accommodation is excellent, the location for me was perfect.

Beach Cottage is a wonderful place to stay! It is right on the edge of the Moray Firth with stunning views of The Black Isle - very peaceful and great views, yet only a short drive to Inverness. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and everything we needed was there. Brad is a great host - super breakfasts - nothing is too much trouble. It is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in.

Tips:

Culloden is a few miles away - a great half-day trip. Good shops in Inverness if you are after Scottish gifts and souvenirs. The Cawdor Tavern serves excellent food and drinks - about 20 minutes easy drive away. There are lots of good restaurants in Inverness and Brad is happy to make suggestions.

Tips:

We had two very good dinners, one at the Cawdor Tavern next door to the Cawdor Castle and one at the Mustard Seed in Inverness itself. We would recommend both. We would recommend a boat ride on Loch Ness to Urquart Castle. Also, drive around the entire lake and stop for some walks. The scenery is beautiful.

We loved eating at giraffe which is the restaurant near the big tesco's but would also recommend collundon moor inn.

Loved our stay at Beach Cottage B&B & would throughly recommend & hopefully stay again one day. Brad's attention to detail is exceptional and we were made to feel very welcome and his breakfasts are rather yummy too.

Tips:

If able to try and make the trip round the head land in the morning to catch the Dolphins when they come into feed at tide change. Brad will know the times. Magically experience. Shin Falls is worth a visit for the walk around the woods and depending on time of year watch the salmon leaping back up stream. Ticket to Ride bikes are great in Inverness if wanting to hire bikes, we had a lovely ride around the Caledonian canal.

Vary friendly owner (Bradley). One of if not the best B&B we have stayed at. Brad was very help full giving us ideas of where we should go and see while in Inverness. Breakfast were great. Highly recommend this B&B.

Tips:

Just ask Brad where to eat. A drive to Dunrobin Castle is a absolute must and make sure to stay and see the falconer with his falcons in action on the castle grounds, which are beautiful.

Beach cottage is one of the most beautiful locations I have stayed in. The cottage itself is lovely, welcoming and homely. Brad, the host, is a great guy, very friendly and gave us great local information about places to go and things to see. The room we stayed in was beauly, it's a very cozy and keeps the traditional style of a Victorian cottage but with the latest technology to insure the maximum comfort. The bed is unbelievably comfortable, the shower strong and well lighted while the view leaves you speechless. Breakfast was a huge choice of bought self service and cooked breakfast and Brad really knows his stuff :) All in all we would recomand it to everybody and we look forward to staying with Brad and his wonderful cuddly and hilarious dog Branson ! Thanks Brad for your disponibility and great humour!

Ask Brad about the dolphins and the Cawdor Tavern :)

My wife and I had a superb 4 night stay at Beach Cottage. Every aspect of the stay was perfect. It was clean, comfortable, well situated with a superb breakfast. We couldn't have asked for more. Brad (and Branston) made us feel extremely welcome and his local knowledge and recommendations enhanced our trip. I have absolutely no problem recommending Beach Cottage B&B and plan to stay there again on my next visit to the area.

Tips:

Culloden Battlefield is well worth a visit. Book a tour of Loch Ness but make sure it includes the stop off at Urquhart castle. Ask Brad about the best time to view the local dolphins as they feed on the local salmon.

Beach Cottage is in an idyllic location overlooking the Moray Firth. The room we stayed in called Moray overlooked the Moray Firth and to see that lovely view every morning was something not to be missed. The owner Bradley was extremely likeable and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for him. Bradley and his dog Branston are a winning combination. We had a great holiday and really enjoyed our first visit to Scotland - I'm sure it will not be our last.

Tips:

While we were stopping at Beach Cottage we went to Loch Ness, Kyle of Lochalsh and Balmoral Castle - all well worth a visit. Also there are some lovely walks along the river in Inverness. Me and my husband are more pub grub people so I cannot recommend any fine dining places, but we were more than happy with the nearby Snow Goose, one of the Vintage Inns chain, which we visited twice during our stay.

We had a friendly welcome from Brad and Branston the border terrier. The room and en suite bathroom were beautifully appointed and cared for. Lots of breakfast choice. We had a wonderful few days.

Tips:

We were in the area to watch the dolphins at Chanonry Point and they were there with the incoming tide a few metres from the shore. We also visited the boat festival at Portsoy which has a charming old harbour. If you plan to eat in Inverness on a Saturday night it is wise to book. Brad has lots of advice. Make sure you take some time to just sit and look out of the window of your room or sit outside with a glass of wine. It is a very calm and charming place to be.

Go to the Black Isle to view the dolphins when there feeding. Crawdor castle and gardens are worth a visit as is the Tavern in the village for a meal. Plenty to do and see, we didn't have enough time to do everything.

Very nice B & B - good location and very friendly owner. The breakfast was exceptional and he tried his best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Very nice.

Tips:

We enjoyed visiting local sites around Inverness - particularly nearby castles and the countryside. We hired a driver for one day and he took us all over northern Scotland and to Skye. It was a great day to learn local history and relax with someone else providing all of the details and driving! The Beach Cottage was a very centrally located "home base" and the view of Moray Firth beautiful. It's close to a grocery store and several eating establishments. Easy to access with a car (we rented one for our trip) and quiet at night.

Brad and Branston the wonder dog were perfect hosts at this lovely B&B situated right on the Moray Firth. We stayed for 3 nights and found Beach Cottage to be a perfect location for visiting the local attractions and Inverness, with its lovely shops and eateries, is a very short distance away, along with beautiful Loch Ness. The room was meticulous and had lovely views over the Firth. Brad has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable including the use of free WiFi which is so handy when you're a long way from home. Breakfast was amazing with a huge selection to choose from. Brad makes the best scrambled eggs!, Brad's dog Branston is an important part of staying at Beach Cottage and he makes great breakfast company along with Brad's converstaion and sense of humour. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The bed was so comfortable and the room was beautifully decorated and everything was so clean. Breakfast was amazing as well. We would certainly stay again.

Tips:

Easy drive to the Loch Ness and the town of Inverness from this location. We arrived and left by train and rented a car to do the small bit of driving to the local attractions. Once we checked out of the B&B, we were able to leave our luggage at the train station lockers for a small fee, and then walked all over the town until our train left later in the day.

The location is beautiful and the cottage itself warm, cozy and inviting. Lovely place to stay for a relaxing weekend away. Relatively isolated so a car is required (or taxis) to get to Inverness and surrounding areas but not too far as to be a problem.

We absolutely loved Bradley and Branston! They were the most courteous hosts--they went above and beyond on just about everything. Great food and great help.

Tips:

Cawdor Tavern has amazing food & ales--a bit off the beaten path, but definitely worth a visit! Clava Cairns is also a great sight to see if you are in the Culloden Moor/Battlefield area. Tall folks (6'+) may not want to book the Beauly, low shower.

Beach Cottage in Inverness is such a lovely place to stay. We enjoyed every second of our stay. The breakfast was so delicious, especially the freshly prepared Fruit salad and the scottish breakfast. The host is so friendly and has really good tips what things to See and to do (dolphin watching!!!!). Beach Cottage was definetly the best bed and breakfast during our stay in Scotland!

Tips:

Dolphin watching!!!! Ask the host for best times and locations to see wild dolphins for free!

This is the second time we have stayed at Beach Cottage. For us, everything is perfect and we find it such a relaxing place to stay at the end of our trips to Scotland. The location, just a few miles out of Inverness, is fantastic. Bradley, the host, is so welcoming and friendly. His cooking skills are awesome too - breakfast is lovely. The room is beautifully decorated with everything you need. A huge thumbs up from us. We would recommend it to all looking to stay here.

The 300 year old tiny cottage with its beautiful renovated two guest rooms in a modern and historic style is the bst b&b in Scotland I have ever visited. The breakfast is excellent and the host is a very nice man, always willing for small talk and prepared to fulfil all wishes or requests. The view out of the bed on the Moray Firth is tremendous eventhough the cottage is just ten minutes drive away from Inverness. We stayed four days and we were very sad to leave. We can fully recommend it. Thank you Bradley, you made our holiday beeing a real holiday. Sara and Patrick from Germany

Tips:

Dunrobin Castle with falconry is worth seeing just one hour dirve at north coast. Tomatin Distillery is a must for all visitors as well as the culloden battlefields.

Best B&B we ever had in Scotland. Perfect!!! The room + bathroom was clean, to ever time. Spectacular view from the window over Moray Firth. Very quiet and pure nature (we saw the otter in front of the B&B, nice to see). Breakfast was very excellent, great choice, every morning. Brad, the guest father, was lovely, helpful and friendly. We will come back, to stay in Beach Cottage B&B.

Our trip was enjoyable thanks to you. your home, your humor and your kindness. thank you again, we hope to return soon. The location is perfect base for touring north / south / west, and the view is so beautiful. The house is more than clean and very quiet. that was a great pleasure. Thanks again.

Tips:

Distilleries are not far away. You can have a boat tour on the Lock Ness (20 mn from there). Inverness is good to see, there are plenty of good restaurants (Mustard seed, reverside, the corner...) and walks around the river Ness. And another very good restaurant the Dores Inn in Dores by the Lock Ness. It's a really good base point to go west / south / north.

We spent 2 nights in the Beach Cottage and are thrilled. A perfect room with a great view and a service that you will not find in some good hotel. We have received many great tips from the owner Brad, but the real boss in the house is the crazy dog ;-). We'll be back next year definitely go back and look and the tranquility and the perfect service at the Beach Cottage. Thank you for 2 great days!

Tips:

The recommendations that came from Brad, were all great. We could see dolphins in the wild when hunting, Fairy Glen waterfalls visited and visited Clootie well. All the places are few tourist guides, but are much nicer. Thank you

Excellent position with beautiful views over the firth. Beautiful breakfast in an untra clean home with excellent facilities. One of our favourite stays in UK. We missed the otters and seals that frequent the area, but we missed them on a sea-safari, also due to the late summer.
