Holiday Cottages in Easter Ross and Inverness
A loosely defined area on the north-east coast above Inverness, Easter Ross encompasses the towns of Alness, Dingwall, Evanton, Invergordon, Kildary, Milton, Portmahomack and Tain. It’s an area rich in history, from the ancient Picts to whisky production and, due to it’s sea-bound nature, offers fantastic wildlife spotting opportunities including basking seals, migratory birds and the rare Capercaillie. A visit to the larger towns of Tain, Alness and Invergordon provides the perfect opportunity for a spot of retail therapy with numerous craft and jewellery outlets, independent shops and museums.

Inverness, the northern most city in the UK, sits at the mouth of the River Ness. Due to it’s strategic location, the city has a turbulent past, with wars waged between feuding Pictish families and rival clans, and a critical role in the Jacobite uprisings. This history is still very much part of modern day Inverness, and no visit is complete without a trip to the Castle, and medieval Church Street, home to the oldest surviving buildings in Inverness including Abertarff House, the Steeple and a Victorian Market. Being a city, there is also the usual variety of popular High street retailers, restaurants and pavement cafes.
