"Tranquility on earth."

"Everything you could want from a holiday cottage"

Gordon made us feel welcome on our arrival and took time to show us around the cottage and explain how everything worked and to also say that we should contact him if we needed any assistance. As he lives next door that would not have been a problem. He even took the time to contact us before we arrived to say that as the previous visitors had left early that morning it would be available for us before the time we expected. The cottage had everything you could possibly want or need for your holiday including tea, coffee, sugar and a pint of milk which were most welcome after a long journey. The property is located in a quiet location on the edge of the village and has fantastic views over open countryside. There is a local shop and post office nearby and also an hotel which does great food at reasonable prices. Although situated in a village location it is close to the main road which gives easy access to nearby Thurso and other tourist attractions. We loved our trip to Orkney.

Great to be appreciated. So pleased they enjoyed their stay.

"extremely comfortable and well equipped cottage"

Had a 4 night stay at this cottage. It is spacious, imaculately clean and with all the facilities and equipment you could wish for. The owners are extremely helpful without imposing in any way whatsoever. The location is ideal for exploring Caithness and there are very reasonably priced places to eat within walking distance. An excellent holiday cottage!

So pleased that they enjoyed the cottage and their stay.

"Bien équipé"

Nous sommes restés 3 nuits à Kinross. Ce cottage est confortable, propre et bien équipé avec un joli jardin . La literie est de qualité. Le sèche linge est appréciable notamment dans le cas de court séjour. L'accueil est très agréable et reste discret.

the cottage was left very clean and tidy. Very nice people.

"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.

"Clean and comfortable cottage which we highly recommend"

As we have visited the area due to work commitments, this made our working week feel more like a holiday. We will certainly use this cottage again for both work and pleasure visits to the area. The cottage is very warm and welcoming and is very well equiped, clean and comfortable.

It is a pleasure when are efforts are appreciated. Thank you.

Pleased to be of service and hope we see them again.

"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
