Reviewed 4 days ago for a stay in March 2018

My family and I booked the cottage at the very last minute in early March 2018 and were very happy for the four nights we stayed. It's location is very close (by car) to the town of Wick but was far enough away for us to enjoy a relaxing rural break. Waking up to a beautiful outlook over the Loch is also a major plus, offering complete peace and quiet this is the ideal place for a stress free stay. Accommodation wise it's just what we wanted, with old world charm and new world broadband. Overall we all enjoyed the stay and felt so at home, some of us didn't want to leave.

Management response:

Thank you for such a lovely review! We would be most happy to see you back. It is an amazing view across the loch and so peaceful Best Regards Catherine

Perfect position to explore the surrounds of Wick. Catherine the owner, was very helpful. The archeological trail, just a short cycle away. Fishing in the evening and early morning around our own private loch. Walking along the cliffs to see puffins and kittiwakes. A lovely trip and highly recommended to folk that want a natures break.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your lovely review, it was nice meeting you both and hope you had a good trip back All the best Catherine

The absolute charm of the cottage and its surroundings made our stay unforgettable. Our hostess did everything possible to ensure our stay was enjoyable. The weather, however was not near as accommodating. The loch offered some great photo opportunities We had sheep all around us and loved coming back each day to see them. We also had a pair of oyster catchers nesting on the old stone fence just outside the window. They had three babies, and watching their antics was great entertainment. The open fireplace was a relaxing way to end each day.
