Nairn is an excellent base for exploring the Scottish Highlands - voted the second most favoured global holiday destination for 2010 by Trip Advisor.

"A peaceful, relaxing and beautiful place to stay"
We stayed for a week in the caravan, which is in very good order and well appointed for its age. The quality of the caravan and the personal touches made it a very comfortable stay. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners, Peter and Therese. The general ambience of Hiddenglen is peace and tranquility within picturesque natural surroundings. Our young daughter thoroughly enjoyed the various activities that were available - such as feeding the lambs, collecting the eggs and playing on the trampoline and slide. In addition, we all had great fun taking the rowing boat out on the loch. There are some wonderful places to visit in the area, and we would strongly recommend Hiddenglen as a special holiday experience.

"Hiddenglen - 'Hidden Gem'"
What an amazing time, myself and my husband had at Lakienbuie Holiday Lodge. It was the most beautiful, tranquil, calm, peaceful place we have ever been. Therese, Peter, Rob and little Josh, where very friendly, helpful and always willing to have a chat and offer advice on where to visit and ask how our day had been. From the very first day we were made welcome, the lodge was spotless clean, they left a dozen eggs for us from the free range chickens on their farm,with everything in the lodge that you could possibly think of the attention to detail was second to none. My husband said to me that the only thing they haven't got is board games, and hey presto!! on opening one of the cupboards in the bedrooms there they were. We had family visit us during the week and were absoultely blown away with the views, the 4+star quality of the lodge and the friendliness of Therese and Peter and the others. They are all now wanting to book for the future. This place needs to be seen to believed, we hope that you enjoy your stay!!!

"The perfect place to unwind and be close to nature"
We have stayed in the Kestrel's Nest cabin a few times now and this time we took along our three year old grandson who loved every minute. He collected eggs and fed lambs and we rambled all over the farm and had a great time. Peter and Therese are very nice and make you feel very welcome. It is also a good location for days out too being close to Nairn and Inverness. I will definitely be going back for another visit and would recommend it very highly.

"Another great week at Laikenbuie."
We spent our second Easter this year, staying in one of Therese and Peter's lodges. It was spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. As last year, we enjoyed spending time on the farm where you can wander, see the animals and take the boat for a row on the lake. The weather was not great but it did not seem to matter; the surroundings are just perfect and we loved being back at Laikenbuie.

"Wonderful 'back to nature' experience"
We chose to go for an Easter break as five related adults to the north of Scotland, and found this site looking to be the best suitable for our needs: a wild area with access to the scenic beautiful roughness of Scotland, yet not far from facilities for shopping and eating out. Our hosts, Therese and Peter, were helpful and welcoming from the very first contact, and continued to be so during our whole time there: always available if need be, and with time to chat and offer advice and recommendations. Their extended family, including two wonderful dogs, a large number of chickens (they wouldn't keep still so no-one could count them), and a splendid working farm with cows, sheep and lambs, were an added bonus. The whole site, an old quarry with plenty of walks in various directions through the gorse, meadows, copses and a small loch, with it's occasional heron and osprey (but mind out for the electric fence). There are also a number of birds and other wildlife who regularly appeared (in fact we got to tell the time by some of them) at the feeders on 'our' balcony: several small birds like Siskin, Chaffinch, Great Tit, Coal Tit were ever present, but we also had close-up views there of the Great Spotted Woodpecker and a Red Squirrel (who had learnt to open the box to grab the peanuts inside). Despite several superb trips out we were always pleased to get back to the warmth of our lodge. Facilities are very good, although the showers may seem a little weak for those used to the powered variety. All rooms are clean and tidy and everything else is thoughtfully provided, plenty of blankets, including electric ones if needed, and we had a lovely surprise on arrival of a welcome card and some eggs (including chocolate ones as it was Easter !). Wish we lived closer than the 500 or so miles away we do, we would certainly go more often - whatever, we are looking forward to our next trip to link up again with 'our new friends in the North'. (I'm only sorry I can only put one tick on the 'Recommend' button below.)

I stayed in the caravan which was functional, clean & tidy with beautiful views over the valley. A very peaceful place. I enjoyed catching a 3lb+ wild Brown Trout from the pond especially as it's not stocked.
