We already knew it, but Trip Advisor has just confirmed it - Nairn Beach has been voted Scotland’s best beach and in Britain’s Top 10 by Trip Advisor's survey of the best beaches in the UK.

Dolphin View is, in our opinion, the best little holiday home in Nairn and it has without doubt, simply the best location - the closest holiday cottage to what Trip Advisor has confirmed as the best beach in Scotland.

Our front gate opens directly onto the ‘parkie’ by the beach, right in the heart of Nairn.  50 footsteps will take you to the top of the dunes, where the above photo of the beach was taken.  The photo below right was taken from the bedroom window. 

The Marina, pier, lighthouse, East Beach and River Nairn are all to the right, the links, playgrounds, paddling pool, swimming pool are to the left and the town centre just a few minutes walk away.  Coffee shops, grocery stores, pubs and restaurants are all within 5 mins walk.

Children can play freely away from cars on the links and still be watched from either inside the house or out in the garden.  We have bikes, fishing rods, golf clubs, and a skateboard for your use.   Tired and in need of a rest?  No problem - we have 2 TV’s and a PS3 with 42 games to choose from.

We are right in the middle between two championship golf courses Nairn Dunbar, and Nairn Golf Club, both only a 15 minute stroll away.  Castle Stuart Golf Club, Cawdor Castle & Kinloss Country Golf Club are all within 12 miles.

Of course we love our holiday house but this review, received this week just goes to show it is not just us..

“...we decided to have a techno free week.  Your house is amazing, we had the most wonderful time. We can’t thank you enough for our holiday.  We visited Elgin (Glen Moray Distillery and the cathedral ruins), Loch Ness (Dores), saw dolphins on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday which was breath taking. We enjoyed Nairn and its wonderful people.  We loved all the lovely things in your house; kids loved skateboard sitting on it rolling down the hill, golf clubs on the crazy golf (we bought a bag of golf balls from the charity shop and left them in the shed), rock pooling, the parks are incredible we have nothing like it in or around (our home).  The BEACH we loved the beach!  The beds - wow big comfy pillows and quilt is unheard of in previous accommodation we have had.  Sorry could go on all day!  So would just like to say we think yours is the best holiday property we have rented and will most certainly be booking again :)
with gratitude...
