This is an excellent holiday cottage. Two minutes walk to the beautiful cove by the sea. Superb hospitality from owners and locals. Wonderful stay in fully equipped accommodation.
Beautiful, well equipped cottage in a stunning rural area, just 20 minutes drive from Inverness.
We got so lucky to find this cottage.......it could not have been more perfect. Everything about the cottage was excellent, there was nothing that we could have wanted that wasn't there. The decking was ideal and we sat there peacefully every morning with a coffee, all around was complete silence, no people and no traffic noise. The garden was lovely, and the views to and from where quite beautiful. We came home one evening to find a deer in the garden. The location was a great base for the west coast where we saw seals and dolphins. If I was to buy a cottage in Scotland, it would have to be this one.
We stayed a week at Sgarbh Lodge. It was a lovely accomodation with a beautiful view. Would absolutely recommend.
Excellent place to stay, fantastic views over the lochs and mountains.The house is clean and comfortable well equipped. Excellent place to explore the Highlands .We have stayed here twice now and loved it on both occasions the weather this year was exceptional ,would recommend to anyone you will not be disappointed. Thank you to the owners for the welcome gifts.
Lovely cottage in an excellent private location with a nice view and walking access to two great hikes up munros.
We all loved the cottage. It was clean and comfortable.no faults at all. The area was perfect, very quiet and peaceful but close enough to walk to town. We will definitely be back next year.
A beautiful property and so peaceful. Highly recommended. A warm welcome from the owner was lovely too. Can't wait to to back.
Couldn't be better in an ideal location, very comfortable with all the amenities you could wish for. Nice secure garden too our little dog loved it.
FANTASTIC!!!! We plan to return to Marnies Croft in a couple of years. My whole family loved it too and what made it more enjoyable for us was ... no Xbox or PlayStation no computers at all.
A great property - spacious, well-equipped, spotlessly clean, with a great view to the rolling countryside. When I stayed there, it proved to be a cool and airy place in which to escape the summer sun and heat..definitely recommended.
Beautiful cottage and garden. Cottage was very clean tidy and provided everything needed for our holiday, thank you. Weather was lovely...no rain which was a bonus.
We had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and so clean. Everything we might have needed was provided. The house has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and is the perfect place to go to get away from a busy life. Marjory and Bill, who own the property, were so lovely and helpful. Can't recommend this property enough. Will absolutely be booking again!
Spent a week with my family at the Mill the owners Bill and Marjorie are very welcoming the cottage was stunning inside and out the views are breathtakingly stunning would definitely come back. Myself and my partner and kids had a great time.
One word : beautiful ! Don't hesitate, the house, the view, the area are wonderful ! We recommend.
A clean, comfortable and conveniently located cottage provided all we needed including a garden to sit out in. Just a quick drive or short pleasant walk into Portree. Good cliff top walks from the door and lovely to be woken each morning by cuckoos.
Had an amazing week in Burnside. We are reasonably familiar with the location and the description sounded excellent. It didn't disappoint. Negatives first; property was advertised as having wi-fi- it didn't at the time of our stay, although broadband is supposedly coming on the back of a cable the MOD have just ran across the Bealach. That said O2 coverage was just passable; sit upstairs or stand on the rock in the garden... Water from the private burn is brown-didn't try drinking it so would bring bottled, (at least to start with) Everything else was spot on; great accommodation, beautifully executed, amazing views (summer solstice so still able to see across to Rhona at 1.30am....) And last but not least, the wildlife........As a small taster our last night was wrapped up by the silhouette of a fox trotting along the bench at the cliff edge. Magical.

Dear Michael, we are unsure as to where you saw that the property had wifi advertised, as this, due to the loaction, has never been available at this property. Having read your review, the lack of this certainly does not seem to have been a problem and thank you for proving your feedback.
We had a wonderful stay at Reyflat Barn, everything you would need at home was here, the quiet, the views and the balcony amazing, not forgetting the lovely welcome from Pat and the homemade scones on arrival delicious,
Wow, what an amazing place! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Upper Folds. The cottage is a perfect, remote location - no internet or phone signal so great to switch off from the world and relax. The road/track to get to it is certainly interesting but also all part of the fun and adventure, do not underestimate the need for a 4x4 to get there, we were very grateful!! We loved looking through the pictures of the cottage being built and some of the snow pictures, it would be spectacular in the winter. Would love to see more on the history of the land/area etc. Inside and out it is so well kept, tidy and very clean, it has all the facilities you could need, especially a nice comfy bed and sofa. We did find there was quite a drive to several places we went for days out, most places were taking 1 - 1.5 hours to get to, but we were in no rush. Would highly recommend and would definitely return.
First time staying at Poulary and we weren't disappointed. The views from the decking and kitchen window are breathtaking. We saw an abundance of wildlife (red stag, golden eagle and pine marten to name a few). The drive to the end of the road was fantastic. I highly recommend this beautiful cottage and it's stunning surroundings. Our dogs loved the garden and all the walks from the doorstep. Hope to return one day.
Spent a lovely week here with the family in July 2018. The house was superb, had every convenience available to us and was in the most glorious location. This was really as good as the advertised version. It was close enough to access all parts of the island but if you didn't want to venture out and fancied a lazy day, then the views across Dunvegan Loch were magnificent and many an hour could be whiled away just looking out the windows at the wildlife. We hope to return in the future.
We stayed at this wonderful cottage for a week. Absolutely 1st class accommodation with a superb elevated aspect overlooking Gairloch bay and the Isle of Skye. We have stayed on the west coast many times but by far this is the best place. I will definitely be recommending this to family and friends.
Excellent setting and marvelous views on the bay. Lovely cottage, very comfortable and cosy interiors. One thing: get some new frying pans (as most cottages should)!
We had a fantastic stay again at the Log House. This was our 4th visit & we will definitely be back. The decking out front is a brilliant addition to the cabin, allowing an outside space where the famous midgies dont get you. The wildlife just outside the cabin is incredible & as always we were sad to leave this incredible place. Can't rate this location or Log House high enough, it's incredible!!!
Lovely cosy cottage a short walk from the centre of Portree but distant enough to feel remote. Owners introduced themselves and were so friendly and approachable and allowed the children to give their horses apples. Very well supplied cottage that met all our needs and lots of fascinating books to read. Both children and adults loved our stay and enjoyed the fire one night. We are looking to book again the week was so relaxing with lots of beautiful climbs/walks and rest.
We really enjoyed our stay in Taffs Barn. It was clean, comfortable, a good size, well appointed and in a serene location with great views. The owner greeted us shortly after our arrival, was very friendly, and even left us some delicious scones with clotted cream and jam. I'd very happily stay there again.
Fabulous lodge, super kitchen and an ensuite in every room. Spotlessly clean and absolutely stunning views...just wonderful!
Property was amazing, couldn't fault it in anyway. So very comfortable. Dogs loved the garden which was enclosed. Lovely welcome pack. Just like home from home. Plenty of wildlife to see from property. Only one suggestion is a sign on the road showing direction of property as not too easy to find.
A beautiful cottage in an idylic situation. So peaceful and quiet and the views each morning to wake up to were wonderful. Well equipped and very comfortable. Lovely garden. Could use a dishwasher maybe in the kitchen. Loved the aga. Further garden furniture would also be great. Overall a lovely week in a beautiful part of the country.
A very enjoyable holiday, cottage was excellent and very well equipped.
Second time there, this time in a heatwave! Fantastic location, great cottage and excellent welcome from the owners. Looking forward to next time!
We loved staying at the Coltsfoots. The lodge was very clean with everything we needed. We loved sitting out on the terrace morning and evening in a very quiet and peaceful setting. The lodge is not isolated but is very quiet. We drove to Ben Nevis from here, Loch Arkaig, Glen Roy and the river Garry but there are plenty of places around Loch Ness. Fort Augustus is a great, touristy town with lots to see and do and with several pubs serving very good food. Overall a brilliant holiday with amazing weather in a cosy and comfortable lodge.
A lovely well equipped property with plenty of space for 6 people and secure storage for bikes, kyats etc. Great location with a garden, views towards Suilven and within walking distance of a variety of local shops and restaurants. The area has spectacular scenery great mountain walking and fantastic beaches to explore.
Had a fantastic time staying here, the lodge is beautiful! My children had fun staying here, the beds were comfortable, very clean, had everything we needed, and the personal touches made it all the more welcoming. Definitely recommend 5*****
We had a great two weeks in the lovely Station Cottage.The cottage has all you would need, including the location.Weather was great, with lots of wildlife on the door step, we had a roe buck in the garden one morning. Garden is large and secure our two dogs, enjoyed it. Will return.
We had a lovely peaceful week at Plooda Falls Lodge which is set in lovely surroundings with many walks nearby. The Lodge was spotlessly clean and Jenny made us very welcome, especially leaving us with a very tasty black currant cake. Highly recommended.
We were delighted with this property, it enjoys a lovely quiet location with open views over the surrounding fields and countryside, and offers spacious well appointed accommodation. It is also a great base to visit the surrounding area including the chance to see the wild dolphins in the Moray & Cromarty Firths, we also had great views of a red kite that appears to live in the area. The owner is very pleasant and makes welcoming scones that are delicious.
A wonderful, relaxing break. The hot-tub was great & the views were beautiful. Other parts of Skye can get quite crowded, but you can find real solitude here. The newly built cottage was well-equipped. The wifi was really good (an unusual bonus in a place like this) & the shower was the best I have ever experienced.
Amazing cottage. The house had everything we needed and was so pleased with all the extras for our two-year-old like stair gates, a travel cot with a mattress, and a high chair! The owners were so lovely and really helpful with tips for things to do in the local area. Would definitely return as it's such a lovely corner of the country to stay in.
Excellent accommodation thank you we had a great holiday, the dogs really enjoyed the very large enclosed garden and we really enjoyed the comforts. Thanks again!
We chose The Smiddy for its location and from its photographs its imaginatively designed interior. We enjoyed our weeks stay, arriving on bicycles from the west coast. Comfortable bedding, attention to detail in fixtures & furnishings keeping in tune with its former purpose, and a good selection of kitchen ware suitable for a self catering week. There are woodland walks from the property (up into Belladrum woods) & further east fine woodlands of the UK's tallest trees at Dughall Mor. Bus stop for Inverness across the road, and Beauly train station less than 5mls away. Our hosts were very welcome and informative and were available if needed. These points all made for our wedding anniversary to be memorable week. Thankyou.
Great stay at Score Bay cottage. Very nice, clean, spacious and well equipped cottage. Comfortable beds and very nice large tub that's great for soaking after a day of hiking. We loved the view from our cottage of the Outer Hebrides. Even though the road was between us and the water, we were well set back with a large field in front. The location is very peaceful and quiet. We liked being on this side of Skye Island with some great walks and beautiful scenery nearby. Highly recommended.
Comfortable, spacious cottage. Well equipped. Nice short walking distance into village. Had fun in tennis courts and playpark behind cottage.
Fantastic cottage, extremely spacious, well equipped, comfortable and very clean. We had a great week even though the weather was mixed, a couple of days we didn't even go out, we just stayed and enjoyed the spectacular views.
Had a lovely stay at Stablemans lodge ,nice clean house i would highly recommend it
Marnie''s Croft, what an absolute gem. Beautiful, comfortable cottage with fantastic views up Loch Ness. Watch out for the deer in the garden each evening. House sits high on the hill above Urquhart Castle so be prepared to have nerves of steel for the drive up to the house.....but once you get there, you will not want to leave. It is wonderful. Owners very helpful and able to contact if ever needed. A little gem up at Loch Ness. Would definitely recommend.
This was a return visit to this very special place and we enjoyed it even more than the first. The house does all the things a good house should, it being welcoming, giving a feeling of spaciousness, and being calm and comfortable. The weather was superb, we watched deer and eagles and the hooting of owls lulled us to sleep. What a very very special place. Even though we live in Johannesburg we will be back.
