  • "A delightful cottage, really cosy with lots of traditional elements."

    Loved the log burners and the beautiful roll-top bath. Nice touches with the welcome pack, doggy friendly treats and the history of the cottage and area. We all really enjoyed our escape: children, teenagers, adults and our dog and will definitely be visiting again. Highly recommend this cottage for an escape to the countryside. The birdsong and sheep at the window just made it perfect for us. Thank you

  • "Fantastic cottage."

    Not the owners fault but every plate, dish or spoon we took out the cupboard needed washed first, they were all quite dirty. Not enough utensils for cooking, I had to buy a wooden spoon and whisk and a tray to make lasagne in, tongs would be good. We like cooking. Beautifully decorated and a lovely warm stove. Great location and very helpful owner. Would come again.

  • "Arrived Saturday and left on the Sunday due to mice that ate through the bread packaging and into the bread, the crumbs all over inside the bread bin."

    . so i got in touch with the owner myself, no compensation after the amount of money paid. Spoke to the housekeeper who said he thought Dave got rid of them.certainly won,t be booking through Sykes again..Mr A G Paterson.

  • "Bogindour Cottage is the most welcoming to dogs property that we have ever stayed in."

    The dog bed in the bedroom made it clear that the owner had no issue with dogs being upstairs, which was a relief for us dog owners, who have a dog who is used to being allowed to go anywhere at home. We used throws, but didn't need to worry about her being where she shouldn't be, like we usually do on holiday.

  • "Lovely cottage and great location for what we wanted to do."

    Very well equipped and lots of thought put into essential everyday items. Welcome pack was much appreciated. Owner does state gardens are enclosed but not secure for dogs , would have loved to let our dog run free in garden but he is a bit of an escape specialist. Would definitely stay here again though.

    It's a beautiful cottage; cosy, warm, characterful, well appointed and lovingly furnished. And so dog friendly. The owners have done a great job with the renovations. Well located for many walks and beaches; highly recommended.

    Definitely be back. Also finally found an indestructible ball for our four legged dude. He loved the toy box and outside. Thank you for sharing your home with us all.

  • "We absolutely love Bogindour Cottage."

    This was our second stay here and we are already thinking about when we can have our third. Bogindour is always beautifully presented on arrival and the welcome pack is very much appreciated after a day long journey to get there. The local manager Jacquie couldn't be more friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Our sons love Bogindour and have started learning chess after discovering the wooden chess set in the kitchen on our first visit. This is something they have kept up and was the first thing they wanted to do on our second visit. Perhaps most importantly though is that our 3 year old collie Kuri absolutely loves Bogindour. From the moment we first arrived, she was so happy, bouncing about, tail high in the air. She always has a great time and if she's so happh and at ease then we know that it is a great place to be. We can't wait to come back.

  • "Generally faultless."

    We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wish to stay in the area. One suggestion is that a fifth chair for the dining/kitchen table would have been helpful

  • "Bogindour cottage is a lovely well kept holiday cottage, we had a lovely 3 day stay and my only gripe is that we did not have longer in Bogindour as 3 days is not enough time for visiting the lovely beaches and places of interest like Fort George ,not to mention the great golf courses ."

    . Can't wait to return to Bogindour cottage again

  • "A genuinely dog friendly cottage, with dog mats, toys, goodies and other essentials."

    Our dog did not know which toy to play with first. Enough quirkiness in the heating and cooking systems to keep the grown ups occupied. Well located for Inverness, Black Isle, airport, walks and cycle rides. Would love to come up again

  • "We loved our time at Bogindour, we only wish it could have been longer!"

    It's a beautiful home and very well thought out, especially for its four legged guests. Our dog was happy and relaxed from the moment we arrived and that tells us a lot about the place! The listing mentions possible road noise from the nearby A9, but we found that it wasn't really noticeable from inside the house. It was fascinating to read through the book which shows all the work the owners have done to the house over the last few years, and the care and attention really shines through once inside...and the heat from the kitchen range is amazing through the whole house! We had the perfect short break and we can't wait until our next visit to Bogindour!

The property

Enjoying the impressive countryside of the Scottish Highlands in Tore near Munlochy is the delightful, detached, Bogindour Cottage.

A quaint base for a family of five's holiday in this stunning part of Scotland, Bogindour Cottage sits within easy reach of the city of Inverness and its attractions.

As you arrive at the property, you will be pleased to find generous, off-road space for up to three cars, along with gorgeous views of the surrounding country.

After parking up, head inside the property to be greeted by a pleasant kitchen/diner, where the chef of the group can get busy whipping up culinary delights with the ample appliances available, including a traditional multifuel Esse Ironheart range, alongside an electric double oven and induction hob.

The utility can be found nearby and hosts a handy washer, airer and fridge/freezer, for added convenience. After tucking into a delicious dinner together, move through the property to the welcoming sitting room, where plush seating entices you to unwind in front of the TV and flames of the woodburning Morso Squirrel stove.

As the day comes to an end, progress upstairs to find three delightfully appointed bedrooms, with two of these consisting of doubles and the latter bedroom comprising a single.

Completing the property's interior is a fabulous, ground-floor bathroom, where you will be left feeling spoilt for choice when it comes to readying yourself for the day ahead, courtesy of the freestanding cast iron bath and separate walk-in shower.

The cottage sits within a lovely garden, where your canine companion can stretch their legs on the lush lawn, and you can enjoy dining alfresco on the patio.

Be aware there are often grazing animals in the surrounding fields.

Travel a short distance to Munlochy, where not only your amenities can be found, including the bar/restaurant of The Allangrange, and local store, but also walks of the Munlochy Clootie Well and Woodland Trail, along with access to the Munlochy Bay Viewpoint and an adventure park can be found.

Enjoy an outing in Muir of Ord, where the golfing fans can enjoy a round of eighteen-holes at the local club, those wanting to taste the fine tipples of Scotland can tour the Singleton of Glen Ord Distillery, and walkers can traverse the dramatic area of Ord Hill.

Spend some time exploring Inverness, with its stunning sights of Merkinch Local Nature Reserve and The Ness Islands, along with the historic delights of Inverness Castle, Cathedral and the Inverness Museum & Art Gallery ready to be explored.

Discover more of the wider area, with Beauly, Drumnadrochit, Nairn and Rosemarkie (a must for dolphin spotting at Chanonry Point) resting within easy reach and offering plenty to see and do!

There is so much joy to be had at Bogindour Cottage.
