Very Good

“Just the spot...”

Reviewed 3 May 2018

We arrived early on the first day (which wasn’t an issue) and was delighted with the cottage and the facilities, Liz took us up to the cottage and showed us round which was great, literally everything you could possibly need is already there!!, if I was being picky I would say there’s possibly too much in the cupboards as we had more pots and pans than we had rings on the stove which Kinda limited storage space for our stuff, but honestly that wasn’t a real issue, if I said ‘Liz had thought of everything’ I wouldn’t be kidding, it was the little touches that I liked the most, fresh eggs, some milk, dog treats, first aid kit (which I needed as I cut myself falling over my dog whilst I was there, Cutting not only my hand in the process but accidentally standing on a brand new BBQ’s lid). I informed Liz of my mishap and she was very understanding thankfully! Looking around the place there were scissors, bottle openers, graters, literally EVERYTHING you could possibly need in the kitchen, we found a storage cupboard with board games in upstairs, (side note: I am still the undefeated trivial persists champ!!) The bedrooms were very comfortable and the shower in the ensuite downstairs was fabulous after a long walk with the dogs on Nairn beach, (I love a nice hot shower I do!) .. another bonus was the slow cooker and big bowls we found in the cupboard, this meant we could be out all day walking our dogs seeing the sights etc, and come back ‘home’ to a lovely hot meal... bliss!!! We had broadband internet connection, which is always nice to have, it meant I could stream my music whilst sat outside taking in the STUNNING view from the cottage, something we enjoyed doing most evenings, it’s so peaceful and relaxing there..there are cattle and sheep roaming around that we saw regularly but a real heart stopping moment for me was when I saw some deer on the last morning at about 5am, it was raining lightly, and i was admiring the view outside the front door enjoying the clean fresh air when I caught a glimpse of them.. what an amazing sight that was watching those gorgeous beasts running across the lush green field in front of the cottage, only a few hundred feet in front of me (they were bigger than I thought they would be!) and they were almost silent as they moved... I’ll never forget that moment... we had two young dogs with us for our stay which wasn’t an issue as the property is well fenced in, affording us piece-of-mind as it allow them to be outside running around and we didn’t need to worry about them escaping in an unknown area... i travelled up to Inverness for the etape Loch Ness sportive (bike ride) which turned out to be one of the best bike rides I have done, certainly the most scenic, with plenty of challenging climbs as you can imagine in Scotland, and this location was perfect for us, at the end of the lane we were staying on you could turn left and 20 mins later you can be in Inverness, or turn right and your literally 10 mins away from the A9. Would I come back again, darn right I would!!! and I will be recommending this cottage to anyone who is thinking of visiting Loch Ness/Inverness or Scotland as a whole because there is so much to see and do in the area, and if I said it was so beautiful, I simpleton would not be doing it justice.. something you need to experience for yourself, and this place would be the idea base from which to explore.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your kind words. We do appreciate living here. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Haste ye back. The barbecue arrived today, thank you. Best wishes Liz

“Clean, all utilities, quiet.”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Stayed here for a week during the summer. Greeted by Liz the owner - friendly and very helpful. All utilities - two showers, bath, fully equipped kitchen, TV, wifi, etc Quiet, away from any road but only a couple of miles from A9 and so easily accessible. Great views but marred by electricity pylons. Red deer, buzzards, spotted flycatchers. curlew etc spotted from cottage window. I cannot recommend it too highly for people who like the countryside. Only (possible) downside is that the nearest pub is several miles away! If visiting and using a satnav then ask Liz for the correct one or you could end up half a mile away (but you can still see th ecottage)

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your kind review. We are fortunate to live in a lovely area. There are plans to resite the pylons in the future so the view will be even better. Look forward to meeting you again next year. Best wishes Liz

“Perfect isolation”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2016

Well equipped for a group and comfortable rooms. Although well off the beaten track, the drive gives you perfect peace and quiet.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words. We are indeed fortunate to live in perfect isolation but so near to Inverness and many other attractions in the Highlands.
