Please book this cottage you will not be disappointed. A 5 minute drive from the village and set back in its own grounds with only the sheep as your neighbours. From the second you walk in you instantly feel relaxed and at home. Bathroom is fabulous place to unwind and relax after a day out walking. Bedrooms are so comfortable and cosy warm. FantasRead moretic lounge, kitchen and separate dining area. A must if you like peace, quiet and absolute tranquility. Hide

The cottage is beautiful and in a beautiful location. It was perfect for all we needed as the weather was not a major factor for us, so having space, comfort and warmth in a relaxing setting ticked all the boxes. The rooms were large and comfortable with plenty of space in the fenced garden to let the dog go. Plenty of walks in the fresh October aiRead morer was great. Highly recommended and we would love to go back again. Hide

A lovely cottagage set in a picturesque landscape. The perfect location to just enjoy the peace and look up at the stars. Close to lots of natural attractions, such Falls of Shin where you can see salmon leaping up the waterfall

The cottage is lovely, like home from home! In a beautiful location with walks from the cottage or some a short drive away. Local towns and visitor attractions offer a wide range of days out. Our perfect holiday. Already booked to go back next year (for our 4th time there!)

This cottage was perfect for our needs nicely set in beautiful country and easy to beaches and other interesting places to visit, we have a little dog and it was safely fenced in as there is sheep in the fields around plenty local walks. The views are stunning peaceful and no light pollution.

It is a very nice house with all the comfort you dream off. It is big, very clean and I felt welcome. You have a lot of privacy and it is very quiet. There is a lot to do, biking, hiking or visit Inverness or the North. We had a great week!

Beautiful cottage, very comfortable for 6 people. Bathroom was lovely. Great facilities for dogs, kitchen had everything needed, two lovely large sofas in lounge with log burner. Would highly recommend. Wi-fi was great too

Reviewed by Patrick, 13th April 2019

Cottage of high standard and one of the best we have stayed in. Short drive in off the road through lambing sheep added interest and we were able to observe a hard working crofter caring for his sheep. Good enclosed area to front and rear gave plenty of space for our dog. Clean,airy and warm. Great welcome pack. .
