  • Sunrise Summerhouse, Ross And CromartyInstant Book Overlay Image
    Literally right next to the sea, during your stay at Sunrise Summerhouse the sound of the waves will be a constant. It’s an incredible spot to simply be and soak it all up.
    Sunrises are unbelievable, and the sunsets don’t disappoint, often creating more mesmerising colours in the sky. The view is out across the Moray Firth, where there are resident bottlenose dolphins regularly seen from the shore. You have a very good chance of spotting dolphins from Sunrise Summerhouse. As soon as you reach the village of Hilton of Cadboll, known as Hilton, which is one of the three Seaboard Villages, you’ll spot Sunrise Summerhouse, pull up and be over the moon with your choice of holiday destination and accommodation. Sunrise Summerhouse honestly takes you aback. Right beside the sea, yes, but it’s the quality of the build and finish, and the attention to detail that you notice immediately that’s impressive. And as soon as you wander through the little wooden gate to emerge at the front, seaward side of the cabin, it just gets better and better. The seaward side of the property is thankfully mostly glass, so you’ll make the most of the location right beside the water.
    Outside of the cabin is a small seating area and a great charcoal BBQ. A little wooden fence separates you from the shore, where there’s a wee footpath that passes by – useful for exploring the Seaboard Villages during your stay (and visiting the nearby pub!). Opening the sliding main door you enter Sunrise Summerhouse and delight in the interiors. The owners have finished the inside to a very high standard. The linens, curtains, fixtures & fittings, everything is of a high-grade and pleasing to be surrounded by. It is a studio set-up, but it is spacious, and beautifully lit. The kitchen is stunning and has glass tiled backing. The dining area is perfect for two people to enjoy meals by the sea. There’s a very comfortable sofa to snuggle up on whilst watching the waves, and the double bed is perfectly positioned so you can watch the sunrise before drifting back off to sleep. There’s a Smart TV mounted on the wall so you can watch what you want from anywhere in the studio. The bathroom is again finished to a high standard and has a spacious shower cubicle.
    Sunrise Summerhouse is a perfect week long holiday spot for a couple. It’s a romantic place to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life; you’ll want to spend as much time as possible at Sunrise Summerhouse, but there’s much to see and do in the local area and further afield. The other Seaboard Villages are worth spending time exploring. So too is the Tarbat Peninsular to the east where you’ll find lovely Portmahomack and iconic Tarbat Ness Lighthouse. The NC500 is only ten minutes’ drive from the cabin, so you can be exploring different parts of Northern Scotland very quickly and easily. Tain, the home Glenmorangie and Dornoch which hosts one of the best golf courses in the world is within half an hour of Sunrise Summerhouse. Do not hesitate in booking Sunrise Summerhouse; whatever expectations you have, we assure you they will be surpassed staying here.
