  • "We had a fantastic holiday at The Wee Smithy,From the perfect location to the beautiful cottage,Both Angela & Steve were very friendly and welcoming,They have fantastic little touches that you wouldn’t get in many holiday stays ie bag of goodies with crisps,shortbread,wafer bars etc milk in the fridge for your arrival, soaps ,shampoo,etc."

    They even brought us a large fan because of the hot weather.If you are looking for a little cottage tucked away in the country side BUT only 8 miles from a big city,Look no further as The Wee Smithy is absolutely top notch.Thanks again both we will be back.

  • "We had a great time at the wee smithy."

    It was well equipped and we liked that it was self-contained but also connected to the owners next door! We enjoyed walking in the locality and the dog friendly pubs and cafes nearby.

  • "An exceptionally well kitted out wee holiday home with off road parking and a small secure garden area idea for doggies (paving & gravel)."

    Everything in the home was as listed and made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and on hand but only if required (leaving us to relax, feeling unhassled and at home). Would highly recommend and hope to return.

  • "We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay whilst exploring the Scottish Highlands."

    The hosts were fantastic and made contact so we knew they were available should we have any problems - they even advised us on our journey there through the adverse weather. The Wee Smithy was exactly as per the listing, and even included some extras for us and our dog that we weren’t expecting. It was finished to a very high standard, spotlessly clean and extremely cosy. We would definitely visit again.

  • "The wee smiddy is a lovely relaxing holiday home for a couple."

    There are plenty of interesting places to visit from the accommodation. The one thing l would suggest is to have a table lamp or dimmer switch as the down lights were very bright. This is just a suggestion. I would highly recommend the Wee Smiddy as a relaxing comfortable place for a holiday.

  • "Wee Smithy is absolutely lovely."

    It’s brand new and the place has been done to a high spec. Lots of lovely wee touches ie body wash, shampoo etc and a nice wee basket with goodies. Enjoyed sitting on balcony enjoying glass of wine enjoying the lovely views. Great location for Inverness, Beauly, Ullapool and surrounding areas. Would highly recommend this place. You definitely won’t be disappointed!!
