“Really nice and cozy house in beautiful Boat of Garten”

We enjoyed our time in Boat of Garten very much. The house is for up to 6 people, has two bath rooms and a large kitchen. Everything one could possibly need is present.

“Excellent Stay!”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2013

We felt very cosy and felt like walking into our own home. Everything was perfect. My 2 boys loved every bit spending our holiday in Heath Cottage. Our 2 friends came down from overseas for a scottish holiday and it was a treat for them as well. Owner was very helpful from day 1. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who'd like spend their holiday in Boat of Garten. Beautiful nature's reserve and plenty of sight seeing nearby. Thanks again Nick and Heather.

We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found it comfortable and welcoming. We hope to welcome you back soon. Heather and Nick

“Everything one would wish for in a holiday home.”

Reviewed 12 May 2013

Every aspect thoughtfully considered, Heath Cottage is well provided with the things that make a welcoming and comfortable holiday home. It is bright, well equipped for a family visit, warm with plenty of hot water, and has all the little extras which make for a perfect stay. An ideal location for exploring the area with a great wee local shop and nice places to eat well within walking distance for all ages. The garden with visiting wildlife and the forest walks right at the gate were an added bonus.

Its great to see you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found it comfortable and welcoming. We hope to welcome you back soon. Heather and Nick

“Had a great time - as we had on our previous visit and hopefully will again"”
