We have stayed here three times now, and intend to return next year. Cromarty is a beautiful village in a lovely part of Scotland. It is an ideal base for touring the Highlands, or across to the west coast. It is also a lovely place to simply stay put and chill out. There are lots of walks in the immediate area, and places to eat not too far away. Bird and dolphin watching excellent. Ivydene is a comfortable, spacious and well-equipped cottage. Our extended family stay here and the cottage copes well with a full contingent of 8. Very highly recommended.
