  • "Absolutely spotless."

    Excellent location - especially being in the centre of the village but very quiet. There were some lovely features in the cottage and the standard was much higher than we expected. There was more storage than we could have filled. Donald messaged to ensure we were happy and there were no issues. I can only recommend this cottage and we'd love to go back.

  • "Cottage exceeded all expectations."

    Warm welcome from owner Donald who also contacted us half way through week to see if there was anything we needed. Cottage fully equipped and comfortable to stay in. Ideally situated to explore Loch Ness, Inverness and Aviemore which is home to the highest beach in the UK. A holiday to remember.

  • "It wasn’t just the accommodation that was excellent but the whole package."

    The host, Donald was amazing. The little things like the phone call to see if we needed anything getting in for our arrival, milk in the fridge etc. He was there if needed but not intrusive. It was a pleasure to stay.

  • "Maclean Cottage is a fabulous base for exploring the North of Scotland."

    Don is a welcoming and helpful host who communicates very well and gives his guests’ comfort his top priority. The cottage was exceptionally clean when we arrived and was spacious and very comfortable for our party of two adults and two teenagers. There is plenty of hot water, oodles of storage and we had everything we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay - plus the benefit Netflix and two TVs for the teens! Beauly is a lovely little town with two small supermarkets, an ancient Priory, and a range of independent shops, hotels and cafes. It is very easy to get into Inverness, to the north and south coasts of the beautiful Moray Firth, and to the West Coast (Ullapool is just 1 hour). We would definitely return.

  • "The accommodation was lovely and better than expected."

    It was very well equipped and we have no criticisms of the house at all. It is located in a beautiful village where locals maintain beautiful flower beds and baskets. There is a lovely hotel a short walk away , the food there is very good and a visit is recommended. A few yards away is a fish and chip shop, an Indian restaurant, a Co-op and a shop that sells a fantastic selection of ice creams.A shop we had difficulty avoiding.

  • "Everything at the cottage was to the highest standard and the place was immaculate."

    The village was a lovely place with lots to do, see and places to eat out or in. Perfect base for exploring the local area. Was a bit worried about no garden but the sun house was great and you can take the garden furniture into the drive so could still get out door experience. The host got back quickly to enquiries and was very, very helpful.

  • "Wir hatten dieses Cottage für eine Woche gemietet, um von hier aus Motorradtouren in die Highlands zu unternehmen."

    Die Unterkunft kann uneingeschränkt weiterempfohlen werden; sehr sauber und gemütlich! Gut auch die Parkmöglichkeit auf dem abschließbaren Hof. Nett ist auch das kleine "Sommerhaus". Einziger Kritikpunkt: Es gibt keinen Geschirrspüler und keine Kaffeemaschine (aber das wusste man ja eigentlich vorher...). Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin lief problemlos via Whatsapp. Wir würden wiederkommen!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and the location and excellent standards of the cottage made our stay all the more memorable."

    The cottage was very well equipped with all mod cons; very clean and tidy and very spacious. Our only criticisms would be that there was no welcoming documents/instructions and no information leaflets for places of interest round about or for things to do when the weather is not so good. We have left leaflets in the cottage for future reference. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would definetely recommend this cottage and Beauly as a holiday location.

    The gated driveway was perfect for us as it gave us security for the motorbikes we’d travelled up on to tour scotland. Lovely little village that had everything we needed. We had fantastic weather and the locals were extremely friendly in advising us of places to see. Fabulous week and Scotland we will be back

About the location


Inverness 12 miles.

Lying on the north bank of the River Beauly, just 12 miles west of Inverness, the village of Beauly is situated at the very heart of the Highlands. An excellent location for touring, the village is within easy reach of Loch Ness, the ancient Caledonian pine forests of Glen Affric and Strathfarrar and the coast (sandy beaches 8 miles). The name Beauly comes from the French “beau lieu” or “beautiful place” and the village prides itself on being both scenic and well-kept, having won both Scotland and Britain in Bloom titles. One of Beauly's highlights is the ruined 13th Century priory, around which the village was built. Today the village is famous for its craft-based industries and offers an excellent selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. With some of the best scenery the Highlands has to offer just on the doorstep, Beauly makes an excellent holiday base!
