“Immaculate, Welcoming & Cosy”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely little self catering, with lots of nice touches. Pint of milk in fridge, tea, coffee and sugar all provided and a big packet of shortbread. Beautiful soft furnishings and bedding. Lovely fluffy towels, comfy bed, well equipped kitchen and two lovely hosts. And our dog was also very welcome. Highly recommend this for a base to explore Deeside and Cairngorms. It's not the biggest self catering establishment but is definitely one of the nicest. We will certainly be back.

“Just perfect”

What a lovely base for our little trip. Everything was catered for and we had no need to ask for anything, it was all there. We were out for most of the day and Dougals glen was just perfect for relaxing in the evening after a hard day exploring. Lynn and Murdo are just lovely and very welcoming, I hope to return one day.

The pictures of this cottage don't do it justice, internally it is very comfortable and ideal for 2 to stay to visit the highlands and the likes of balmoral it will take 4 with a convertable sofa.

This is a lovely compact and comfortable house. It was cosy and we were made very welcome by Lynn and Murdo. Everything you need is here and if it wasn't they'd get it for you. We enjoyed our stay very much.
