The cottage was all we hoped for and more, Joan and Jerry had thought of everything, it is fully equiped with everything you need. The pool and sauna met expectations especially for our grandson who couldn't have had a better time. We will be recommending this property and plan to visit again in the future. superb!

“Perfect short break”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The house itself was lovely, catering for all needs. The swimming pool was an amazing bonus and the kids would have happily spent all their time there! Location was excellent, 15 minutes walk to the beach or to Dornoch, plenty to do, lovely friendly people. Can't wait to go back!

“Wonderful house in an ideal location.”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Made a decision to switch here from the local caravan site which we used the previous year as the small pool would be great for our young grandchildren, especially if the weather was poor. As it turned out is was beach most days but still 2 sessions a day in the pool!
The house was spotlessly clean with a very well equiped kitchen and is extremely comfortable and homely. Wonderfully peaceful and only a 20 min stroll to Dornoch.
Would definately come back again.

“A great place to stay.”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Took a group of 9 and we all had a throughly good time from the private pool to the nearby golf course and woods. Local amenities were excellent and the owners were outstanding looking after anything we needed. Would highly recommend this cottage to whoever wants to stay in this part of Scotland. Will be coming back next year if available. p.s make sure you visit Dunrobin Castle it's amazing.

We have had one of the best family holidays - thank you for having us. The modern, spacious accommodation and location are truly exceptional. The kids had such a great time in the heated indoor pool. We would love to return next year.
