"Excellent Holiday Cottage in Halkirk"
I would definitely recommend anyone traveling to the Scottish Highlands to have a look at staying in Halkirk at Kinross Cottage. A real home from home, fully equipped with everything you could need for a self catering holiday, washing machine and tumble dryer if you have to do such things and set in a well maintained lovely garden. Cottage is spotless, plenty of lovely fresh towels and bedding. The owners are not far away and go out of their way to be very helpful without bothering you at all, they even get tea, coffee and milk in for you on your arrival. Halkirk is a place to get away from it all but within driving distance of the exquisite scenery of Scotland. I have had a great holiday and definitely want to return again to Kinross. Don't miss out on this great accommodation when booking your time away.
What lovely people they were and they gave me some help with my own computer. Hope to see them again.

We wish that we had stayed here for more than the 3 days we did stay. We could not think of anything that was missing that we even might have needed. It was spotlessly clean, lovely and warm and the … More

"Well appointed accommodation in excellent location"
Kinross holiday cottage is very clean, well appointed and located in the quiet village of Hallkirk. It is well located for trips east and west - we went as far as the Kyle of Tongue in the West and to John o'Groats in the East. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay and we loved the views from the lounge window. It was so quiet and so peaceful. We shall definitely be back. We stayed on our way to Orkney and wish we had spent longer in this area.
It would be great to see these people again

"A pristine cottage in a good location"
Kinross is a very well presented holiday cottage set in a large garden adjacent to the owner's home. The property is ideal for a solo traveller or couple and the second bedroom, although small, could accommodate another adult or two children. The owners were helpful but not intrusive and arranged a WiFi connection to the bungalow for a small fee, which was a very useful. Kinross was comfortable, well equipped and cosy. The location on the edge of Halkirk village was quiet with open views across farmland to the front and local facilities such as the shop and pub within walking distance.
it is pleasing when people recognise our efforts to make their stay comfortable. WiFi is now offered free.

"will definitely be back"
we found the cottage to be immaculately kept, with lovely clean furnishings, bedding, towels etc. There was plenty room in the cottage and it was well proportioned. Mr and Mrs Warren were very obliging and keen to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Thoroughly enjoyable stay and we will definitely book again the next time we travel north.
Great people hope we do see them again
