  • "We have stayed here for over a month and highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable and relaxing place to stay."

    The setting is quite and beautiful and we were very well looked after by Hamish and Lorraine

  • "We really loved the lodge and certainly didn't want to leave, it is very spacious and the views are well worth a sit on the decking with your morning cuppa, please, please, please make your own mind up about staying at the lodge, other reviews may be misleading, they are correct about a few minor things but definitely don't merit a scathing report, if we could move the pod to anywhere we wanted we would definitely book again for our next holiday, and probably will in the future where it is, thank you also to the owners, on hand if we needed you but definitely not in our faces, to sum up, a very enjoyable stay in a very nice lodge."

  • "We found the accommodation to be very comfortable and well equipped."

    It was situated in a lovely quiet area. The owners were friendly and helpful when needed. Loads of hot water.

  • "Based upon the location, and the external look/setting of the property, the review would be excellent."

    However, at every turn, the property failed to meet expectations, particularly at the price paid. The basics are missing - feels very much like a return on investment project rather than a delighting the customer experience, which surely needs to be the priority when the owner is a touch point for Scottish tourism. We contacted the owner about one issue, which was responded to and dealt with promptly within 24 hours. Other than that, however, it felt the owners didn't want to engage, even although they were next door. Not even a 'Hi, how are your doing?'. There are no basics - nothing on arrival such as milk - no tea/coffee - nor any kitchen cupboard basics. In terms of cleaning products, we were provided with one j-cloth and 4 dishwasher tablets for 7 days. We had to go out and buy cloths, surface cleaner, tea towels, hand soap for three sinks, plus washing powder etc. If this was a budget rental, I would understand, but this was very expensive in comparison to others we have used this summer with Sykes. The space is great - indoors and out, but there are huge wardrobes in each room, that are walk in, but there's no light in them. On the surface the property is clean, but finding an empty biscuit packet jamming a beside cabinet drawer, and being unable to use the fantastic underbed drawers as they were, frankly, filthy, leaves you disappointed. There was a bulb out in one of the bathrooms on arrival, and bulbs out on the exterior lights front and back throughout - easy things to check and maintain on changeover days. The lack of accessible sockets at bedside was also a frustration for all. In terms of towels, both bath and hand were tiny, and no internal nor external bath mats provided. There was no surface space in either bathrooms or bedrooms, and nowhere to put toiletries in the showers. There were no toilet brushes, and nothing to keep the property in any way clean. The property is for 4 people, but there was only 3 mugs. The bin does not close properly either. No instructions for the hob risks it being damaged if not used properly. We booked the property specifically due its modern build and single storey, as there was an elderly member of our party. We believed the property would be ideal from the listing, but it lacked any awareness around the needs of different age groups. Oh, and if you do book, take care of the cooker hood. I'm not overly tall, but gee the crack I gave my head while routinely prepping food...ouch. Overall, if the owners were to live in the property for a few days, this would quickly solve things I think, and then either seriously reduce the price, or improve the customer experience. For example, fresh bread straight out of the owner's oven on arrival at a property earlier in the summer, which was 30% cheaper really sets the context and importance of delighting the customer. We did have a great week in the area, and these comments are genuinely meant to ensure a great experience for future customers.

  • "Overall experience was very good."

    We had a great time and the location of the cottage was ideal for exploring the Inverness area with plenty to see and do anywhere from 5 to 40 mins drive away. Suggestion for the cottage is to make a broom, dustpan and toilet brushes available for guests should we wish to clean during our stay. Otherwise it was neat, clean, and very pleasant. Thank you

  • "Set in a quiet location, within beautiful grounds and views across a meadow towards the estuary, approx."

    6 miles from Inverness. The Pod was a perfect size for a family of 4, with plenty of storage space. Plenty of space in the kitchen/diner/lounge area too, with all the essentials. Comfortable beds, hot water for showers always available! Lovely outside seating area, with a canopy to keep the rain out, so you could sit outside on most nights. The owners were friendly and always happy to help if you needed anything as well. We had a lovely holiday!

  • "We had a fantastic family stay at Viewfield."

    The property is ideally located to visit the Moray region, Inverness and the Black Isle and has lots of sights to see locally. The property was very clean and felt newly decorated. The kids enjoyed seeing the horses and the farm round the corner has an alpaca which we enjoyed seeing. Brilliant holiday and we would love to return in the future.

  • "The holiday cottage was situated in a pleasant rural setting with no noise or distractions."

    The accommodation internally was of a very high standard with plenty of space in all rooms and common areas . Two good sized toilets / shower rooms, one on-suite. Plenty of hanging space for clothes and storage etc. Externally there was a nice seating area, on decking, which was roofed and open at the sides such that fresh air could also be enjoyed. All in all this holiday cottage ticked all the boxes.

About the location

CULLODEN

Inverness 3.9 miles; Cawdor 10.7 miles; Nairn 13 miles

Three miles east of Inverness is the village of Culloden in Scotland, famed for being the site of the Battlefield of Culloden, the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745 on Culloden Moor. Today the National Trust for Scotland has a visitor centre which is a popular tourist attraction, which hosts an interactive battle experience with an immersion film battle room. The village was originally made up of estate houses surrounding the Culloden House, but is now home to several holiday homes. Located in Culloden Woods is ‘Clootie Well’ where brightly coloured rags are hung as offerings from those wishing to be cured of ailments. The Cairns of Clava are also close by; a group of Bronze Age burial mounds.
