Our Burghead Cottage is a traditional fisherman’s cottage built in 1857. Recently refurbished it provides bright and airy holiday accommodation just a stone’s throw from the site of the old Pictish Fort, the harbour and the stunning sands of Roseisle Beach. Burghead is ideal, not just for a beach or dolphin spotting holiday, but also for touring the Malt Whisky and Castle trails, as well as longer day trips to places such as the Cairngorms National Park or Inverness.
Burghead itself is situated on a promontory, jutting out into the Moray Firth, meaning the cottage is less than 500m from the sea in 3 different directions! The village is self contained, with 3 pubs within easy walking distance, all serving delicious local fish and chips (amongst other choices!), and other basic amenities including a small corner shop and newsagents.
We invite you to take a holiday with us – you can be assured of a warm welcome at any time of year!
The cottage was totally refurbished in 2008.
With a large living/dining area as well as a separate lounge, a king size double and a twin room, four people can easily feel at home here. We can also provide a cot or an extra camp bed for those with young families. The enclosed garden means the cottage is also ideal for those with well behaved dogs.

A gem! by Simon on September 6th 2017
Lovely spacious cottage in a quiet town. Great welcome pack and cottage is beautifully presented throughout. Everything you need is there and it's pet friendly. The cottage is minutes from a fantastic beach that stretches for miles. Many other local picturesque villages with equally beautiful beaches. Great local pub the harbour - 1 min walk - very very friendly and good pub food. Also a bistro called the Bothy in the high street which is pricier but great good. It's a perfect place for a break from it all. Will definitely be going back.
Beautifully appointed and an unspoilt, breathtaking location! by LouLou P on July 24th 2017
The cottage is spacious, very well-appointed and just steps away from the beautiful Roseisle beach.The kitchen and bathroom are very modern, and the choice of sitting areas is very useful, if the family want to 'spread out'. Burghead has the sea on three sides, so when one steps outside the front door you can see the waves all around you! The cottage is a very short walk from a characterful, local friendly pub, The Harbour Inn, and the historic fort and well. The harbour is a very interesting working fishing environment one can stroll along, amongst all the fishing nets and lobster pots on the sides. The COOP is a fully stocked mini supermarket, so one does not need to drive anywhere else for shopping. It was a lovely, relaxing stay, totally un-touristy, huge, sweeping empty beaches and lots of lovely sea air! Do make sure you take in the glorious sunsets over the bay.
cosy cottage by Christine on July 6th 2017
a well located cottage to a picturesque location. Surrounding sea's including harbour, sandy beaches. Historic sites on doorstep as well as easy travelling ones. Superstores within easy travel for supplies, although local shops too. The cottage itself is larger than appears in the photo's on web sites. Has plenty of room for families or pets, or opportunities to be homely and cosy. Has all the equipment required to make your holiday stress free. The booking procedure had a personal touch. Also on arrival the welcome pack is one of the best we have ever had. Will be back
"Great Cottage, Great Location and Friendly Locals" by Duncan on May 3rd 2014
We (me, my wife and 2 year old son) had a great extended holiday here in May. The cottage has everything and more that we needed and was furnished comfortably to a high standard. With only 100 yards to the beach, our beagle loved the paved walks along the coastline, open clean sandy beaches and pine forests on windy days. There are two convenience stores, three pubs, a pharmacy, and a wonderful bistro for coffee, lunch and dinner, all within walking distance. The visitor centre presents the proud history of Burghead and the locals are the most kind and friendly we have encountered on holiday. We made some fantastic memories here, we hope you do too.
"Far exceeded our expectations!" by Kira on January 9th 2014
We stayed at Burghead Cottage this January, and the cottage couldn't have been more perfect. Wendy the owner gave me excellent driving directions from Inverness and easy instructions on how to access the property. The cottage is spotlessly clean and warm and cozy, with lots of room to relax. The kitchen had everything we needed and more, including bacon, eggs, bread, coffee, milk and even a bottle of bubbly! The king size bed mattress was super comfy! The property is just a minutes's walk to the beach and pubs/restaurants. The Harbour Inn was full of friendly locals and the food was great! The cottage is an excellent base for exploring Elgin and the Cairngorm area, so we will be back for sure!
"Great cottage, great place, locals very friendly." by Rachel on July 16th 2013
We stayed for one week in Burghead Cottage which is one of the best cottages that we have holidayed in, The cottage had everything that you need for your stay, And a lovely welcome pack of food when we arrived. The cottage was excellently maintained and very clean and tidy on arrival. The cottage is very spacious with plenty of room a very well equipped kitchen large living room and a spacious dinning area. The main bedroom is very big, we did not use the twin bedroom but it is also very spacious. The bathroom came with large bath and separate shower which was excellent, There bathroom was also clean and very tidy on arrival. Our little dog was very happy to have his bed at the bottom of the stairs. There is also a small garden with decking and a small area of astro turf, The garden gets plenty of warm sunshine in the summer and is a pleasant area to relax in. There is also a large selection of books and information on the area to help you plan your days out. I really can't find anything at all to complain about the cottage only that we weren't there long enough...............and yes we WILL be making a return journey.
