  • "The property is absolutely beautiful and is everything you could want for a holiday."

    Whether you are looking for a peaceful retreat or a base to explore, this place caters for everyone. The hosts are really friendly but not intrusive, you feel completely left alone but know that they are on hand should you need anything. If we were heading to the same area again we wouldn't hesitate to book again, everyone in our party loved staying here.

  • "It was a beautiful house."

    My only negative comment was the garden was not enclosed for the dog I would hasten to add that no claim was made in the description that it was secure but my dog would be liable to go to anyone even on the owner's property when seen or cross the road to see any other dog whether accompanied in the garden or not. For that reason only I thinknit is unlikely we would return. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.

  • "Redburn Steading is a very comfortable house in a good location."

    The house is spacious and has all the amenities you could want for an enjoyable holiday including a very useful Welcome Tray. There are many interesting places to visit within a a short drive including Nairn's lovely beaches and the nearby towns and villages. The Landmark Adventure Centre is a really good day out and the beach at Roseisle is wonderful. The friendly owners, Ben and Nix, are available to give advice on local attractions although there is comprehensive information in the house about places of interest and a wide variety of activities. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.

    Set off a quiet country lane surrounded by trees, perfect for waking up to birdsong, yet in easy reach of many interesting places.

  • "Clean, comfortable, well equipped and furnished."

    Three great big bedrooms and bathrooms. Great information provided about the local area. Hosts live next door but after an initial warm friendly welcome leave you entirely to yourself. Ideal location as a base to head East, West and North along the Moray Firth

    It's clean, cozy and beatiful. It's pretty secluded and in a gorgeous area of Scotland. We had a wonderful stay.

  • "The house is fantastic with all the comforts of home."

    It is larger than it reads in the ad and is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. The thing that sets it apart is all the small things that were already there on our arrival....ground coffee, tea and biscuits, dog towels, bowls and much more. It left us knowing that the owner thought about making our stay better without looking for a saving of a few quid. Something that is mostly missing from short term rentals. I was unable to find fault. Thank you.

  • "This holiday home is like home from home, it has everything and more to make your stay welcoming and comfortable."

    Right from the lovely welcome pack that’s left for your arrival and the fact that Nix & Ben go the extra mile by emailing before your stay with a milk choice. We even had a text on the way up to check on our journey with advice on a route as there had been an accident. Also, leaving the porch light on for us on our late arrival. There is a lovely detailed manual with all history of the property, about the owners, advice, routes and a whole lot more. We met Nix who was absolutely lovely and was on hand in the house adjacent if we needed. The house is situated in a beautiful setting with lovely walks around, which we made the most of. The location is perfect in every way. We had the most wonderful family holiday and would love to return one day.

    Lots of information provided by the owners on local walking and cycling routes etc and a great selection of leaflets on places to visit and thing to do. We could not fault anything. We have stayed a many property rentals and this one is at the top of the list. It was very well equipped, clean and spacious and very peaceful. The location was excellent as it was an area we hadn’t visited before but certainly with a vehicle we were able to explore the wider area. Lovely walks right on your door step which our dog loved. Also great for cycling, spending time on wonderful beeches or visiting Places of interest and we did a lot of exploring. A very relaxing week. Highly recommend this property.

    A wonderful place to reflect and or be active. The house is larger than it looks in the photographs, plenty of space to spread out. The down stairs double/twin bedroom is wheelchair accessible and ideal for guests not comfortable with stairs. We had our holiday's food supplies delivered to the house by one of the local supermarkets (Tescos, Sainsbury, Asda), so we could focus on optimising our time on holiday. Nick and Ben are excellent hosts, giving us a warm welcome - nothing was too much trouble. It was nice they live a short walk away, as when we had a query or had post being delivered (while we were out) they helped us out. Forres is a 20 minute drive away. Definitely recommendable.

Nairn is an attractive and lively seaside town dating back to Victorian times. It has long been a popular holiday destination and is just 16 miles from the town of Inverness. Nairn even lays claim to being one of the driest and sunniest places in the country! The town offers some of the top beaches in Scotland and cleanest bathing waters in Britain. Also, one of the only two dolphin colonies in the UK is based in the Moray Firth. Nairn is steeped in history and is closely linked with the Battle of Culloden, whilst nearby Fort George is Europe’s best preserved 18th century military fortification. Shakespeare’s famed Cawdor Castle and Brodie Caste are both within 15 mins drive. Golfing enthusiasts will be attracted to the two 18-hole championship courses, including the Nairn Golf Club, and the town also has an outdoor tennis court as well as a squash court for hire. The yearly Nairn Highland Games in August draws a wide crowd and The Nairn Book and Arts Festival is a popular year event. Whitewater rafting, tubing and cliff jumping are all available for those with a spirit for adventure. Day trips from the local airport are available to Orkney and Shetland and the Cairngorm National Park with skiing and hiking are within 1 hour. Nairn is an ideal centre for exploring, or just relaxing.
