  • "Cobblestones cottage was warm, with very comfy beds and a homely feel."

    Hosts were very welcoming, with any requests being met immediately and they even offered us a lift to a restaurant in town so we didn't need to take our Goldwing Trikes out again. Amazing, thanks so much again Michelle :) Cobblestones cottage is in an ideal location for local villages / towns which give access to beautiful roads and the best of the Highlands. It has views over the loch where you can fish, row a boat and swim or simply watch in awe the people being braver than you!

    The host Michelle couldn’t have been nicer, she met us on our first day and came to say goodbye as we were leaving. The property was opposite a beautiful Loch and Michelle gave us free and unlimited access to a rowing boat which made it a real adventure for our 2 grandsons, we would definately stay again.

    Absolute bliss! If you want space and peace, this is the place to be. Big spacious house with big rooms. Everything you need. The hostess Michelle could not have made us feel more welcome. She turned the lights on, turned the heating on for us after our 7 hour journey. Kept checking up on us to see if we needed anything. Even came to say goodbye!

  • "A lovely property in a wonderful area."

    Amazing view of the loch from the balcony, Visited by the ducks from the loch at least twice a day. Bring dog treats if you want regular visits from Toby a lovely Cocker Spaniel! The bird feeder was visited by numerous varieties of birds. Easy to get to all areas of the Highlands due to local roads being the main routes across the highlands, but far enough away not to be seen or heard from the property, also try the minor road around the loch and over the dam. Helpful and knowledgeable owner. A good property for either a family or friends as plenty space. Highly recommended

About the location

STRATHPEFFER

Inverness 20 miles.

Often compared to a Bavarian Mountain resort, the picturesque spa village of Strathpeffer owes its growth to the discovery of water springs during the 1700s, and was declared in 1819 to be the healthiest drinking water in Britain! The original Spa Pavilion has been magnificently restored after a period of disuse and now serves as a venue for a variety of events, including concerts, dances, dramas and exhibitions. The former Victorian railway station, which in times past brought many visitors from near and far, has now been beautifully restored to house craft workers and their shops, and is also home to the Highland Museum of Childhood. Visit the restored Pump house (also a Tourist Information point), take a walk along a forest track, or enjoy the views from the nearby pictish hill fort at Knockfarrel. Whatever you decide there's plenty on offer for all the family.

The minimum stay at this property is 4 nights
