We couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your stay at Braehead Croft, and that everything you needed for a great holiday was provided. After five visits it must feel like a second home for you now, and we hope that you will soon return for your 6th visit!

Perfect
The photos of this cottage do not do it justice. It is just perfect, everything you could possibly want in a rental cottage. From just about every room there are sea views. There is a lovely patio area which has extensive views over the Moray Firth, as has the rest of the garden. The cottage is in a village and the village hall is next door; because of this we did expect that it may be a bit busy or noisy, but it wasn't at all. It also ideally situated to get to all of the many attractions in the area easily. All in all we had a really good holiday, and hope to return one day.

Fantastic
This cottage had everything you would need on holiday and more. We loved it and do not want to tell too many people as it will make it too popular and unavailable.

Absolutely outstanding in every way.
This property was by far the best we have ever stayed in.Superbly furnished,spotlessly clean. We could not fault it in any way. Panoramic sea views from most windows.It was a credit to the owner.If all holiday properties were as good as this, we would have no worries.

Suburb all Round Cottage
Fantastic location with superb view. Very homely, everything provided for a relaxed, comfortable holiday. Very helpful and thoughtful,owner, it was as though the cottage had been prepared for family rather than holiday makers and plenty of parking and ample ground for running around, and close to all ammenites. The first time we have stayed in a cottage where even cleaning materials were provided. Very close to Spey Bay where we watched dolphins, also Port Gordon fo seal spotting. I would highly recommend this cottage for comfort, location and ease of convenience. This cottage & location were fantastic in a rainy snowy March it was very cosy especially with the great fireplace and cosy atmosphere, I would imagine that in the summer it would be amazing. If you are looking an all year round getaway this is the place to be. This cottage has a wealth of warmth of its own, and I can see why guests return time after time.
