Very Good

“Amazing time !”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2018

We stayed at Kirktoun Cottage for 3 nights and loved it ! Had a great time and the children,toddler and 6 year old enjoyed every minute. Lovely views and friendly cows. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We try hard to ensure all our guests have an enjoyable stay. The cows in the neighbouring field are always an added bonus! We’d be delighted to welcome you all back in the future. Best wishes Caroline (Owner)

“Excellent Location”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2017

Fabulous location with lots of places to visit around about. Good walks and beaches. Post office at the road end was excellent, very well stocked and very friendly lady. Duffus Inn was very good, staff were very friendly and helpful. The property was very comfortable and well equipped. Could do with some TLC on the outside as first impressions were very poor. Clean windows would have helped with overall impression, otherwise we had a very enjoyable stay. (Note for anyone with mobility problems, no toilet upstairs and shower over bath).

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your stay. We are indeed very lucky to have such a good pub and post office in a village the size of Duffus and within walking distance to the property. I am so sorry you felt the outside of Kirktoun needs some ‘TLC’. We have had a particularly wet September which has meant our regular grass cutting routine has been disrupted. All our properties do get their windows washed monthly. Kirktoun actually had its windows washed this week - unfortunately just after your stay. We shall certainly take a look at the insides of the windows and see if these require cleaning more regularly.

“Quiet location with well equipped cottage”

Reviewed 13 May 2017

Cottage was clean and well equipped with nice welcome pack which was enjoyed during my all to brief stay. Will revisit

Owner's reply: Hi, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I'm pleased to read that you enjoyed the welcome pack. We aim to give our guests a wee 'taste' of Moray. We'd be delighted to welcome you back anytime.

“Ideal location with everything we needed.”

Reviewed 12 May 2017

Less than 10 minutes from Lossiemouth, lovely beaches here. Scenery lovely, we had fab weather during our 2 night stay. Would recommend the cottage and would stay for longer the next time. Well equipped with everything you need for a longer duration and pet-friendly with an ideal enclosed garden. Play park within 5 minutes walk.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for writing a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed both your stay and the area. We would be delighted to welcome you back in the future.

“Perfect rural getaway”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2017

This cottage is very spacious, has all amenities you'd need and is perfect for families with dogs. The garden is large, well fenced off and leads straight into a forest with walks to explore. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay due to the space inside and outside the cottage. Look forward to coming back soon.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for leaving a review. The property is indeed ideal for those with dogs as there are so many lovely walks locally, including the Estate woodland accessed directly from the cottage. I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay.

“Tranquil Cottage in the Country”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2017

Had a wonderful break at the Kirktoun Cottage in Duffus. Beautiful Cottage, gorgeous scenery and great location. I was there with my family and dog for a big family gathering in Nairn. Fantastic place to walk your dog and spend time in the fresh air. The Cottage owner left us a welcome pack with bred, milk, eggs and jam all locally produced which was a wonderful touch. Will definitely be back here when visiting friends and family in the North again. Perfect

“Home from Home”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2016

2nd times we have stayed at this lovey house. Welcome pack as always very gratefully received and everything you could wish for to make the week simply taking into consideration a grandson of 13 and two dogs. Great to have a freezer. Easy access to beaches, woods and walks and this time once more we went out with 58 adventure and saw minke whales and also visited Inverness Aquadrome which was great fun for everyone. As they say we will be back!

Owner's reply: Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave a review for Kirktoun cottage. It does make the hard work all the more worth to know it is appreciated. I am sorry we were away ourselves so I couldn't welcome you back to Kirktoun personally, but hopefully we'll be able to welcome you back again in the future.

“Highly recommended accomodation”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2016

My wife and I with our Golden Retriever (Roddy) have just spent a week in what is a lovely well equipped and very comfortable cottage. The furnishings and rooms etc are of a fairly high standard and all necessary amenities are included. The large totally enclosed garden was an added bonus and our pal Roddy made the most of it during our stay. The cottage is ideally suited for visiting the Moray Firth area and the town of Elgin. Within 200M of the cottage there is a restaurant that is excellent for lunches and evening meals etc. Will certainly consider returning again in the future!

Owner's reply: Hi, thanks for leaving us a review. I am pleased that you and Roddy enjoyed your stay. The garden and surrounding walks does indeed make it an ideal place to stay with dogs. We are very lucky to have the Duffus Inn within walking distance of the property. We would be delighted to welcome you back again in the future.

“Fabulous cottage in wonderful location”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2015

My husband, teenage daughter, puppy and I spent a fantastic week in this lovely cottage. The cottage was clean, well-equipped with plenty of space for all of us. The large, enclosed garden was great for the puppy and the access from there to walks around the estate was very handy. We walked to Duffus Castle, which is definitely worth a visit. Would recommend Burghead Beach and Roseisle for great walks and Duffus Inn, The Bothy in Burghead and Spice Tandoori in Elgin for fabulous food. We would recommend this lovely cottage. Caroline was very helpful, providing information about things to do before and during our stay, as well as supplying a very nice welcome basket for our arrival.

“We will certainly be back.”
