  • "This is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in."

    It is cosy, clean, well equipped and well maintained. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into trying to ensure there is everything necessary for a great stay. They have succeeded!! We have already booked again for next year. Many thanks.

    Hi Alasdair, thank you so much for your kind comments, we are delighted that you both had a wonderful stay. We are lucky to have a great team of people who take care of our house and we are always thinking of new items to add for our guests, we are putting a telescope in the lounge soon so people can use it in the garden as we benefit from being in a dark sky reserve. We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Best wishes Dave & Jules Property Owner

  • "Lovely house, had a great stay."

    Small thing, the lightbulbs in the bedside lights in the twin room aren't right for the dimable lights. They flicker and are unusable, bulbs just need changed.

    Hi Fiona, so glad you enjoyed your stay, I am back up soon to do a few chores and the replacement of those pesky light bulbs will be top of the agenda, thanks for the feedback. Best wishes Dave and Jules Property Owner

    We were all very comfortable and the location was perfect for us. A great base to get out and about in the Highlands.

    Hi Nikki, so glad you enjoyed your stay, you are quite right, Tomintoul is an ideal spot for starting a tour of the Highlands, we have been coming here for a long time and are still finding new and exciting places to explore. Glad you had a safe journey home Best wishes Dave & Jules Property Owner

  • "A home from home in the friendly village of Tomintoul."

    The house was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed for a wonderful week. It’s well situated to tour the area and beyond, we hope to be back next year.

    Thank you Anne, we are delighted that you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed your stay in Kilmuir Cottage, the summer season is a lovely time to visit the Highlands with the abundance of wildlife and beautiful scenery and as you say, “the friendly folk of Tomintoul” We hope you had a safe journey home and we would love to welcome you again next year.

  • "The property was on the edge of the village the photo makes you think its in the middle of the country."

    This was not a problem as meant we were closer to the village than we thought. Everything you need is in the property but we found it far too hot as the temperature is auto set to 21% and you can not adjust this from the property .As the weather was nice we opened all the windows this helped then to regulate the heat. May be worth noting in the information that the local shop only opened until 5pm

    Hi Karen, so glad you enjoyed you stay. With regard to the heating, the thermostat is set to achieve and maintain 21c as we feel that this is a comfortable temperature, but when the sun shines through the glass, the house like any other house it will warm up, but when 21c is achieved the heating shuts off, so any temperature above this in the property is directly from the Sun, and unfortunately the additional warmth is out of our control, therefore the house will need windows to be opened to allow any unwanted heat out, as mentioned, the heating is off! and not contributing to the rise in temperature. We have taken many pictures of the house from all different angles and at different times of the year to try to truly reflect the position of the property relative to the surrounding area, there is a map on Sykes website showing the cottage in relationship to the village, and also a street view is available, but as you said, it is lovely being on the village outskirts so close to the quiet fields & countryside, and also so close to the town centre and its amenities. And lastly yes, the village shop only opens 8:30-5:30 these opening times will be added to our helpful information book at the property. I hope you had a safe journey home, and we would love to be able to welcome you back to Kilmuir Cottage again in the future. Best wishes David & Jules Property Owner

  • "Can’t really fault anything."

    Spent a week here and enjoyed it. Host seems to have got it spot on. Book and you won’t be dissatisfied. Comfortable beds/furniture. Kitchen has all you need, dishwasher and washer plus small things like teapot, ice trays, food storage boxes. It’s pretty much turn up, unpack and enjoy.

Three spacious bedrooms, a bathroom, and a ground-floor shower room complete the cottage, all well thought out, featuring soft furnishings, stylish fixtures, and ample storage.

Once you're ready to venture out, reach the village centre, home to The Clockhouse Restaurant and The Glenavon, both serving delicious food and drinks, whilst an array of shops will be paces away to purchase the essentials.

Enjoy true countryside days out, touring Abernethy National Nature Reserve, hike up to Glenmulliach viewpoint, for rolling views of the surrounding hills, or head to Tomintoul Dark Sky Site and Bird Hide, where by day, you can observe the nearby wildlife, and by night, stargaze.

An Lochain Uaine (Green Loch) is a hidden gem, a must-see spot if you're an outdoors enthusiast, whilst Highland Wildlife Park, home to an abundance of animals, and Grantown Museum are perfect for the entire family.
