The Mill at Glenlivet

Absolutely perfect! Our stay at the Mill was absolutely perfect. Hosts Bill and Marjory are lovely and didn't miss one detail in creating a relaxing escape. The Mill is cozy and comfortable while still being very roomy. The setting is beautiful and a great jumping point for the many walking trails on the Glenlivet Estate. We used the Mill as home base and day-tripped for hikes or to local sites including distilleries, a dolphin preserve, Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Coming back to the cottage to start a fire, make diner and read some of the many books in the Mill was a delightful and relaxing way to end our days. Marjory is full of fantastic recommendations for local things-to-do and for restaurants. She has also stocked the cottage with tourism leaflets to help you make the most of your visit. We were in Scotland for two weeks and this was our favourite part of the holiday. We will stay here again!

The Bothy

The Bothy was a great place to stay. Fantastic location, big enough for 4 adults and a dog and very well equipped. Loved the coal fire as it was a cold Easter and it was great to light after a day out on the hills.

Thank you for your review and feedback, unfortunately the road that passes the property is the responsibility of the Highland Council to look after and repair, and therefore Wilderness Cottages and the owner of the property have no control over this.

Seascape Cottage

It's all in the name and all about the location. We spent a week at Seascape Cottage and loved every minute. As soon as we saw the location, just a couple of minutes walk from the shoreline we were happy. We were warmly welcomed by Jane & Chaz, who live directly behind the cottage, but were never intrusive. The cottage had quality fixtures and fittings, comfortable sofas and beds and is warm (there is a brilliant heating system), the wonderful view out to sea changes with the weather. A major factor for us was how dog friendly the cottage is and without too many rules; throws, extra dog beds and bowls are provided. We had some wonderful walks just exploring the seashore in either direction. We saw deer and a hare from the cottage window and watched gannets diving in the sea with the binoculars provided. All in all a wonderful place for a very quiet, get away from it all, relaxing holiday.

Owl Cottage

We had a lovely break in Fort Augustus. The cottage is ideally placed just on the edge of town, close to everything you might need. Inside there is ample room for 4, on this occasion there were only 2 of us, which made the place seem much bigger. All you need is provided in the cottage, the only thing my wife missed was Wifi, but no problems other than that. We will visit again in the future.

A really nice property and I would definitely recommend it. Has everything you need for a good self catering week. Views towards Suilven. Handy for the village - shop / pub etc. Great location for mountain walking ie Munros & Corbetts. Our Golden Retriever found the deer visits to the garden rather 'interesting'. Paths / parking area would benefit from some moss removal - a bit slippery when wet.

This cottage has the most amazing views of Loch Ness and the surrounding countryside. The cottage itself is spacious, very comfortable, well-equipped and was spotlessly clean. There is a perfect space for relaxing in front of the log burner in the evening, another seating area in front of a window looking out across the lake, and the dining area has the best view of them all! Oh that is before you get to the main bedroom and see the seating area there! Duncan gave us a warm welcome and showed us around on arrival. It's a great location for exploring the Great Glen and Glen Affric. I couldn't recommend it more highly!

We have just booked our 3 year at the cottage which we hope speaks volumes. The cottage is homely and cosy right on the Loch with the most spectacular view. Listening to the lapping water with the silence around you, is very special. Lots of beautiful walks around, it is remote and quiet yet with a cafe and restaurant, a very short drive away and with a pub and Spa 6miles at Loch Carron. Plus seal watching from your lounge window is very special too.

Taigh Druim

For our first family time in Scotland, we chose the Isle of Skye and for our first visit on this island, we chose Taigh Druim. Expectations were high on all accounts and they were met a thousand times! What a fantastic property! We love the modern style of the house with those exceptional panoramic windows as well as its colourful decoration. Everything is provided for the comfort and the relaxation of the guests from the comfortable beds, the wood burner, entertainment (books, music, DVDs and board games) to the very well appointed kitchen. We even had the delight to discover a well-kept dry food cupboard. The outide deck is ideal for yoga/Pilates sessions and we could only imagine a hot tub to enjoy at the end of a hiking day. All in all, we are very impressed and we already re-booked the property for 2 weeks next year.

Lovely cottage with amazing views in a good location. We found the cottage spacious and well equipped and would definitely stay here again when we return to Skye. There is a pleasant 15 minute (with little legs) walk into portree, either along the coast or through a wood which we did a few times. We enjoyed gazing out of the lounge window onto the isle of Raasay and Ben Tianavaig.

We had a wonderful holiday in Hill Head Croft. It was in immaculate order throughout. We were a family of 6 adults and there was plenty of room and the garden is a real bonus especially for our dog Grenson who loved being out there. The area is quite spectacular and we wore ourselves out walking the hills and forests and cycling every day. Cameron's farm shop and cafe is an absolute must with it's warm welcome and great food. It's a beautiful walk from the Croft and a visit to Foyers falls is close by.

Words failed me as we entered the barn and I was blown away by the stunning views of the 5 Sisters. The owners had left a lovely bottle of local whisky and sitting on the comfortable sofa with a glass in one hand, in front of the log fire watching the sun set over the snow capped mountains was breathtaking. We will definitely return. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone. One word of warning, the road to the Barn is very 'rural' so don't take a vehicle with low ground clearance.

We had a fantastic week. The cottage is beautifully maintained and the personal touches we really appreciated. We were snowed in, but this didn't cause a problem as the tranquility and beauty of the surrounding area was so enjoyable, we were kept entertained by the Deer, Hares and Buzzards, and our dog loved playing in the very deep snow.

The Three Chimneys restaurant is a short drive away if a special night out is required and Dunvegan has a cafe serving huge portions of delicious cakes and home made soups to die for. Did I mention Skye weavers? I could go on for ever. A car is a must if you stay here but the drives are lovely.
