    Owner very friendly. Kitchen equipment sparse. Second bedroom was a little damp as it probably had not been used prior to our week. However I love the place and the location and will certainly be back.

  • "The cottage is in a great location for visiting many scenic sites and is well located for some good hikes."

    It’s situation is rural but close enough to Dingwall and Strathpeffer if you need a supermarket or fancy a coffee, lunch or evening meal at the deli cafe in Strathpeffer. We had a great Staycation here and would recommend this cottage and its location. The WiFi works well and the facilities are comfortable and adequate.

  • "We had fantastic holiday."

    Great setting right beside the loch. The kids spent hours swimming and playing in the loch and the grass area just outside the cottage. The owners were lovely and let us borrow their paddle board, bike and rowing boat. Would definitely go back again.

  • "Pebbles Cottage was perfect!"

    It was clean, comfortable and cozy for me, my two children and dog. The location by the loch cannot be underestimated, it truly is stunning. Mrs Rose is great. She made sure we had everything we needed and nothing was any trouble for her. If you're looking for a peaceful break in a beautiful setting, I can't recommend this place enough.

  • "Make sure you take a good stock of supplies with you,if you run out of something you will be better off travelling the extra distance to Strathpeffer as the local general store in Contin is extortionate."

  • "Lack of shelving in the bathroom."

    No shaving point. Very cramped kitchen. Storage areas needed. No DVD player as stated. I would suggest that the hot water needs looking at. Far to hot and no warning of this above the sinks.

  • "My Friend and I had a wonderful holiday riding our motorbikes in stunning scottish scenery & glorious sunshine."

    The cabin provided the perfect location to stay giving us a choice of places to ride to. It's was clean comfy and well equipped apart from the bathroom which lacked shelves to put things on when washing or having a bath. The shower was ok but not very powerful. Parking was great for cars or motorbikes and we were made welcome on arrival & departure by the owners. Overall would highly recommend for a holiday.

About the location


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.

Note: One well behaved dog only welcome at the property.
