The cottage sits in a very quiet tree lined lane and is only 5 minutes away from the town centre of Nairn. It's beautifuly kept and so clean and fresh. Really well equipped dining kitchen, cosy little living room with woodburner and nice big TV and various games etc. Bedrooms are bright with loads of cupboard and drawer space and great bed comfort. There's a lovely private garden too with seating, gazebo and gas bbq. Parking for 2 cars. The owner lives next door but does not interfere, he even left us flowers and freshly baked scones and was so helpful. Would certainly recommend the place it's lovely.

Perfectly located for visiting the highlands. The cottage is very well equipped and exceptionally clean with quality bedding and towels. The welcome box with homemade scones and jam were delicious. We had a great week and would love to return.

Miserable weather on day of arrival but mood immediately lifted by the quality of the accomodation. Cosy lounge with wood burning stove and an array of board games, DVDs and information leaflets. Extra downstairs bathroom very welcome with two kids! Bedrooms are bright and airy with Velux windows and kitchen/dining room very spacious and well-equipped. Little extras like the 'welcome pack' of milk, tea, coffee, sugar and home-made jam and scones make this a cut above. The cottage is in a great location, not far from the town centre and with a Co-Op and playing field/small play area just around the corner. Ample parking and a very pleasant separate garden opposite. Highly recommended.

Stunning cottage in a perfect location for exploring the Highlands. We stayed here for a week and didn't want to leave! The owners provided a welcome pack for our arrival which was a very nice touch. The cottage had all the home comforts required. Highly recommended holiday home.

We enjoyed our break in Nairn very much. We were out sightseeing mostly every day and Deskford Cottage was lovely to come back to. Because of the aspect the cottage, the garden gets sunshine most of the day, so it was lovely to have morning tea, or an evening glass of wine enjoying the sun's rays. A delightful welcome basket including home made bread and jam was waiting in the kitchen. A most comprehensive instruction book giving details of how to work systems and appliance, and lots of booklet information for the area was available together with a personalised introductory letters from owners Phill and Karen Stuart.....thank you both for the big part you played in our very enjoyable holiday. The cottage itself was very clean and very comfortable.

It is wonderful to hear that Deskford Cottage was a great place to call 'home' whilst you explored the area, relaxing in the sunny garden certainly sounds like a perfect start or end to your days! We will be sure to pass your compliments along to the owners and hope you return for another holiday very soon!
