White Cottage Tea Room offers bed & breakfast on the seafront of the Beauly Firth, ideally placed for starting the famously beautiful North Coast 500 drive around the Scottish Highland coast. It’s a truly beautiful spot attracting dolphins, otters and seabirds, and it’s convenient for climbers wanting to ‘bag’ a few Munros, mountains over 3,000 feet.
Guest bedrooms at White Cottage are all en suite. They come with complimentary toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, TV and sea or garden views. There’s also a comfy TV lounge and a conservatory where guests can relax and mingle.
Home cooked meals are available from 8am to 3.45pm daily. The Scottish full cooked is always popular but other choices include Eggs Benedict or pancakes with maple syrup. At other times customers relish the freshest of light lunches, cakes and traybakes, afternoon teas and speciality coffees, with gluten free and vegetarian options available.
Friendly hosts Stuart and Andrea Stirling are happy for people to stay a single night, as many do before starting the coastal drive, or breaking the journey north to the Orkney islands, but there’s much to be enjoyed by staying put for a few days. Fun seekers often search for Nessie, perhaps taking a cruise on the monster’s famous loch or peering down at it from Grant’s Tower in the ruins of Urquhart Castle.
