About this listing

For an unforgettable vacation right on the shoreline, the Old Salmon Bothy offers luxury lodging, impressive sea views teeming with wildlife, and the opportunity to explore the Scottish Highlands.

With a deck that looks out directly on the sea, the Old Salmon Bothy is the perfect place to relax and soak in all the wildlife that the Moray Firth has to offer. Comfortable accommodation makes it easy to enjoy every moment of your Highland vacation. Explore the surrounding area to discover some of Scotland’s gems including peaceful coastal walks, fresh seafood, golf courses, historical sites, and Glenmorangie Distillery.

Nestled into a sandstone ledge, the Old Salmon Bothy is protected from harsh north winds and has been in the same family for three generations. From the cottage, you can embark on coastal walks with breathtaking views, try wild swimming, and admire all manner of local wildlife. During some parts of the year, the northern lights are visible from your doorstep.

Outdoor furniture on the decked patio means that you can spend plenty of time gazing out at the ever-shifting sea. You might spot seals, bottlenose dolphins, minke whales, and possibly even otters. Witness unforgettable sunrises with a cup of coffee in hand. Because the Old Salmon Bothy has its own slipway, you will have access to launch a small boat or kayak. This slipway is also perfect for those who enjoy fishing.

Step inside to enjoy a lounge with plenty of comfortable seating. A wood-burning stove with logs included ensures that everyone stays cozy and warm. Because the Old Salmon Bothy is also equipped with electric heating, you will be warm any time of year. The lounge is fitted out with a DVD/television, an extensive collection of books, and a DVD movie library to help you unwind. Wi-Fi is also included.

When you are ready to turn in for the night, you can take a shower and sink into a generous double bed. A well-equipped kitchen is primed for action complete with a microwave, stove, oven, and everything you might need to prepare a delicious meal. Upon arrival, you will find a welcome selection of goodies.

If you do not feel like cooking every meal, there are some opportunities to experience Scottish cuisine nearby. Because the sea surrounding the Tarbat Peninsula is frequented by local fisherman, fishing their creels, you can feast on freshly caught seafood. Only 10 minutes away, Portmahomack is home to restaurants like the Oystercatcher and the Castle Hotel. The Oystercatcher is a hidden gem that features high quality seafood, alongside traditional Highland dishes with vegetarian options. To soak in sweeping seaside views in a highland pub, check out the Castle Hotel.

Travel a little further to find excellent eateries in the Village of Inver, Tain, and Dornoch. The Inver Inn Bar and Kitchen offers fresh seafood, an admirable whisky collection, and views overlooking Dornoch Firth. Stop in at Greens Restaurant in Tain to enjoy afternoon tea as well as lunch and dinner using locally sourced ingredients. Drive to Dornoch to experience Luigi’s – a café-style restaurant with fare that showcases the local seafood.

Beyond seaside relaxation and delicious food, there is plenty to do near the Old Salmon Bothy. Discover breathtaking views with an abundance of coastal walks accessible directly from your door. Only an eight-minute walk away, you can visit one of the tallest lighthouses in Britain: the Tarbat Ness Lighthouse. Those with a passion for history will enjoy the Tarbat Discovery Centre, Portmahomack where you can uncover ancient Pictish mysteries. Anyone who loves golf will find a magnificent selection of golf courses including the world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club, Portmahomack, and Tain.  At the Old Salmon Bothy, you have some of the world’s finest distilleries on your doorstep.  The famed Glenmorangie Distillery is less than 30 minutes away.

A stay at the Old Salmon Bothy is a rest from reality. As a cottage that looks out upon the sea, you will never see the same view twice. Whether you choose to take advantage of the well-equipped kitchen or sample Highland delicacies, there is a wealth of succulent seafood to discover. Luxurious accommodation, exhilarating views, and plenty nearby mean that you can truly escape from life’s stresses.

Guest Comments:

“We have just had the most fantastic week at the Bothy, this place is absolute heaven on earth.
It is so much bigger than expected and beautiful inside and out.
So cosy and comfortable with all the home comforts anyone would need… we didn’t want to leave!!
Lovely touches from the owner leaving us a bottle of wine, milk, bread, tea, coffee and biscuits.
Absolutely stunning views and so tranquil and peaceful.
Cannot wait to go back.”
“Just back from a wonderful relaxing break at the beautiful Salmon Bothy.
Comfortable home-from-home accommodation in a stunning location. The perfect place to get away from it all and experience nature at its best. Skylarks, house martins, dolphins, seals, deer, butterflies, wild flowers. Beaches, meadows, cliffs, forests all on your doorstep. Can’t wait to visit again!”
“Just spent a week at The Old Salmon Bothy in one of the best locations in Scotland. You were almost touching the sea. Looking out the lounge window you saw a different picture every minute. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of walks nearby. Hope to return in the future.”
“We stopped at the end of August for a week and wished we’d booked for two weeks. The cottage is beautiful and very well equipped. The views are amazing , we saw dolphins, seals and if you want peace and quiet and time to chill this is the place to go. We will definitely be going back there.”
