  • "We had a wonderful week at The Steading Tower, Kinloss."

    Hosts Peter and Lorraine could not have been more welcoming and friendly. We found the Tower very clean, comfortable, warm and easy to manage. The area was lovely to explore and historically interesting. There was even a fireworks display the last night of our stay. We would highly recommend The Steading Tower and would happily stay there again. Loved it .

    The property has been finished to a high standard and the facilities available were very good. It is about a mile from the nearest pub and shops, but this meant it was also quiet and peaceful, with nice views of the hills.
