    Stayed in Nairn last year and booked again this year. Love the beach. Clean and mostly deserted in September. Bliss.  more »

    In Nairn can easily get from Inverness even when, as in our case, not by car: there are only 10 minutes by train, and with a round trip ticket cost is not excessive. The town is pleasant-for those interested: it also has a remarkable wine bar in the street from the station to the beach-which is actually, as the guide, one of the most beautiful in Scotland-but has above all a very impressive and pleasing to the eye, Fishertown, located not far from the sea and composed of numerous cottages including run narrow streets. The inhabited houses give a sense of animation and, at the same time, persistence of traditions and customs than anywhere else you are lost. It's a visit that I recommend to anyone who passes by.
