  • "Wonderful stay beautiful setting especially in the snow."

    Plenty of sightseeing around and waterfalls were amassing. Deer and Canada geese made the week. Lovely cottage with log fire, great host who couldn't have been more helpful. Would recommend cottage to anyone. We have already started to plan our next visit.

  • "Amazing location to explore beautiful highlands and Caingorms."

    Robbie was an excellent host - we really enjoyed meeting him and he created a really nice welcoming atmosphere between us and guests at the adjoining cottage. He had excellent local knowledge and kindly offered us use of his canoe. Really appreciated the log fire with the peat to add on - made our living room smell great!

  • "We loved the views from the windows, the very comfortable bed, the excellent laundry room, patio for all day sunshine (when available!"

    !) and a helpful host. The location meant we had varoius choices for where and what we explored. On the downside, Dalwhinie Distillery was impossible to book - most unhelpful. Apparently, one has to book on line, even when we called into the building!! Connectivity at the cottage was poor, so not possible. The road outside is fairly busy durig the day with some heavy lorries but all quiet by 7 p.m. and through the night. parking behind cottage was a bonus. Coffee shops within 5 minute drive; if the road was quieter we would have walked. Altogether a great stay.

  • "The cottage was lovely, clean and adequate for what we required."

    However we did not have any hot water at all throughout our stay. ( The electric shower worked) , but the hot water taps in both kitchen and bathroom only worked for the first half hour. In fact it actually scolded my husband, then just stopped working! We tried to contact the owner on the number we were given but the number would not accept our calls, I even text the number but received nothing back. It would have been good also to know how to work the central heating.

  • "There is no WiFi at the cottage and no mobile signal in the cottage."

    We had to walk down the road to get a signal but that wasn't a big deal. There is no cooker, just a hob and a halogen oven on the counter which wasn't ideal but we were able to cook basic meals with the use of the microwave too. The cottage has basic facilities and a shared washing machine/drying area. The open fire is welcoming after a cold day out walking. The bed was very comfortable indeed and the shower was lovely and warm everyday, no issues at all. Beautiful area and fabulous views from the cottage window of the sheep and lambs in the fields, not to mention the mountain views. A very peaceful area, the cottage is well situated to tour this beautiful area of the highlands. A real get away from it all place.
