“Home from home very dog friendly.”
Reviewed 19 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Home from home. Great for our dog Cooper enclosed garden and also lovely patio area for my mum who enjoyed watching the wild life in the garden. Grassy area across road superb for Cooper and stones through to the beach. lovely coffee shop two doors up and at the other end local hotel. Elspeth very pleasant and responded quickly to our heating issue also the lovely gesture on arrival shortbread made by daughter so we had that with coffee and eggs which we had for our breakfast great. We will be back. Thanks again Elspeth.x

“Perfect family New Year”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Our third time staying at Auld School House. A beautiful house in a beautiful part of Scotland. So relaxing and cosy with the open fire, the ideal place for our family New Year get together. The house is very well equipped with everything you could think of, like a home from home. Seven people sharing with plenty of room for everybody. The local pub is very friendly and the beach is great for walking the dogs. Mrs Little is a very warm, approachable lady who is on hand if ever you need anything at all. The only problem I found was that I just didn't want to come home!

Would highly recommend and will certainly be visiting again in the near future.

“Great time had by all 😎”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Third time to Sandhead staying in one of Elspeths properties although first time in Beach Cottage.

The Cottage is located on the Main Street of the village with fantastic views and access to the park and the beach beyond.

The cottage is compact and well equipped. The conservatory to the rear is perfect for when you return from the beach covered in sand as the floor can be easily brushed clean again - although, like most conservatories it can become very warm (even in September).

The kitchen is well equipped, and there is a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.

There is a downstairs bathroom with shower over the bath and an ensuite off the master bedroom.

Sandhead has a village shop, a restaurant, pub and a tearoom.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week and will hopefully return next year.

“Lovely holiday in a perfect location”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Beach Cottage was perfectly located, very comfortable and very well equipped. The garden and enormous beach were wonderful for 'Peggy' our dog and the conservatory was a lovely place to relax. This was our first visit to this part of Scotland and we loved the scenery, forests, deserted beaches and easy pace of life, all enjoyed with perfect weather. A great place to really relax
