  • "Clean modern impressive house in a quiet location south of Forres."

    From the pick up of the keys there was no hassle and everything was as per listed. The facilities are good the beds are super comfy. Our dog loved the space to roam the garden in the mornings. There are plenty of idyllic places to walk to if you venture out. Randolph’s Leap is just a mile away and is stunning and there’s Logie Steading which provides a nice cafe and some quaint retail therapy only a mile and a half away. For groceries there is a Co-op 7 miles to the north just as you enter Forres. The Hosts live next door but they don’t bother you or watch over you (and believe me I’ve had some watch over me in the past to the point of distraction) and communication should you need to is good, my son forgot his AirPods and I messaged the host and they were found and everything has been sorted. So yes, we’ll be back. Superb.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at the property."

    It was well equipped and very comfortable. The one minor issue we would report in here is very poor water pressure in the upper level of the property. Other than that it was perfect.

  • "Beautiful house, immaculately clean with everything we could possibly want."

    Great communication throughout. Lots of room for us , our kayaks and bikes with safe of the road parking. The area is fantastic with the Dava Way really close for a great long distance cycle and the River Findhorn walking distance for an exhilarating swim. We chose the house as it is ideally placed to visit family. It is the nicest holiday cottage I have ever visited.

  • "The Beeches was a warm, welcoming and comfy holiday home, that was very clean and well equipped."

    We were met on arrival by the owner, who gave us a brief rundown of the property. We were also left with full contact details, should we need to contact them, for anything, during our stay. We left feeling refreshed after an enjoyable week in January, in the Highlands. We would definitely return to The Beeches for a future holiday, without hesitation.

  • "The Pictures are just the tip of the iceberg, lovely cottage in a very quiet area, a short drive to shops and local towns, longer drive to things like Lock Ness."

    Beautiful area with some stunning walks. Friendly Owners are on hand to help with any questions during the holiday and to supply a new kettle in under 30 minutes should the need arise, like it did on ours! The guess book spoke for itself, people returning time and again to enjoy. We were a family of 5, 3 generations for an 80th Birthday surprise for mum, we all enjoyed the Cottage, beds we really comfortable everything was clean and tidy, home from home. Thanks Kim and Allan for a wonderful holiday
