About the property

2 bedroom log lodge for 4 guests, dog friendly, free internet access.

Red Kite Cottage is a Scandinavian design redwood pine log cabin situated close to Munlochy on the Black Isle, just 6 miles north of Inverness. An ideal base for exploring the Scottish Highlands and visiting local attractions such as Culloden Battlefield, the Black Isle Wild-life Park and the famous Black Isle Brewery. It is also within easy reach of award winning beaches in Wester Ross and Sutherland and spectacular mountains in Torridon, the Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve and the Cairngorms.

Situated on the fertile farmland of the Black Isle countryside there is an abundance of wildlife.

The Cabin is named Red Kite due the frequent sightings of these birds of prey. Whether you are hill-walking on the many local routes or taking a leisurely stroll along the beach at Rosemarkie there is plenty to see. Bottle nose dolphins can be spotted playing close by in the Moray Firth and feeding off Chanonry point beside the Fortrose golf course and if your lucky you may even spot Nessie if you take a trip down nearby Loch Ness.

The cabin is fully insulated and double glazed throughout.

There is an open plan layout for family living. The kitchen is well equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing/dryer. There is availability of a tumble dryer. There is ample space for dining and the lounge includes TV with Freeview, DVD with selection of discs, CD and cassette player/radio.

Internet access is also provided via ethernet cable linked to router. (own laptop required).

There is a double bedroom and twin bedroom and a shower room with double shower and heated towel rail.

Outside you can relax on the decked area or enjoy a barbecue in the fenced garden. Bird and bat nest boxes have been placed in the trees.

Bed linen and towels are included in the price.

Electricity is extra by £1 coin meter. Disabled access ramp. Private parking for up to 3 cars.

A deposit of 25% of the total tariff is requested in advance. The balance is payable 6 weeks prior to the commencement of your holiday (or by arrangement for short notice bookings).

Security deposit: an amount of £100 will be pre-authorised against the card you pay your final balance 10 days prior to arrival. This will reduce your available balance on your card by £100 for 30 days.

red kite cottage

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed a very comfortable two weeks in Red Kite Cottage, comfy beds, lovely big bath towels, all we could wish for. A very good location handy for the A9, with great views and bird life. We visited our old favourite places and found new. We like the food at The Priory Beauly, and Munro's garden centre just down the road. We were blest with wonderful sunshine and visability, apart from 1 wet day and a couple of cooler days.

Close by to many attractions

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time I’ve stayed at Red Kite cottage , totally enjoyable, close to many attractions, the brewery at the bottom of the road to name but one !

The BBQ was absent this time but we came prepared so all was not lost !

The well fenced garden was a bonus for our inquisitive border collie, all in all most enjoyable I’m sure to book again in the future .

Not our first visit - because everything about this cottage is so good.

  • 5 of 5

Every little thing has been thought about and provided. I visit family nearby when I go up so am out a lot but the comfort and brilliant suitability for dogs within the well fenced large garden, is second to none

It will always be my first choice but is very heavily booked ( surprise, surprise!!!! ).

I would recommend RedKite cottage unequivocally

A Week at Red Kite Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Red Kite Cottage. It was quite comfortable for the 4 of us. and was warm and homely.

it is located in a smashing location, and a good starting point for trips all over the Highlands ( especially the Black Isle and Cromarty Breweries!)

We recommend it highly.

Regards to Margaret and Paul, the owners, a very nice couple.

What a beautiful cabin.

Fred, Pat, Rob and Claire.
