Home away from home! As soon as we walked through the door the whole cottage felt warm and inviting. We loved our stay at Crofters cottage from the welcome flowers, chocolates and wine, it had all the amenities you would get at home and more. The views and the quiet were amazing and in a wonderful location to explore the highlands.

Amazing cottage, perfect for our group of six (4 adults and two children) and small dog. Location is perfect for exploring the Highlands and at the same time being close to a city (Inverness).
