Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Great place
This is a fully renovated cottage in what was a fishing village. It is very fresh and clean. It was very warm weather when we were there but you could see it would be cosy and welcoming at anytime of year. We had never been to this part of Scotland before but the cottage is minutes from a great beach, shore walks, then lots to do within a 30 minute drive, just a great place. The host is just great.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely little cottage which was clean and well serviced with all the necessary mod cons to make your stay comfortable and homely. The location was perfect, quiet and literally a stones throw away from a beach that would not be out of place anywhere in the world (except the lack of people, and sea temp..🤣.). Perfect Base Camp for exploring the beautiful Highlands.

5/5 Excellent

Great Cottage

5/5 Excellent

Seaboard Stay
The cottage was ideal, beautifully presented and had everything you could want for a comfortable stay. Located a minutes walk from the harbour & local shop, 5mins walk to the Balintore Inn. Seating area in the back garden was good for morning sun. Great location for shore walks and as a centre to tour the local area by car.

5/5 Excellent

Short Stay
Lovely cottage which is immaculate inside and out the owner went above and beyond to make my stay perfect ensuring I had some basics in as they were aware I would be arriving quite late in the evening highly recommended
