The cottage is located in the owners garden it sits in a private location shielded by trees with your own parking space. The cottage is cute with a cosy atmosphere in the open plan lounge and kitchen we loved it.Its very clean we had a fantastic week with our 3 dogs it’s a home from home and found the owners very friendly and helpful felt if we needed anything we just had to ask..we will be going back again.
Thank you Bob and Sylvia

“Peacful hideaway in the middle of nowhere.”
Reviewed 4 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Rowan Cottage has all the advantages of a modern house in this warm and snug log cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location surrounded by fields. We found that it was within easy reach of the natural attractions of this north coast and Dunnet Head is absolutely stunning. The owners were welcoming and friendly without being intrusive and ensured that we had everything that we needed.
We can recommend eating at The Castletown Hotel. The Sirloin steak was melt in the mouth.

We choose to spend Christmas here, and had a really good time. It's a nice, cozy well equipped cottage, perfect for recharging your batteries.

“Quiet New Year Break”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

people found this review helpful

Had a busy Christmas so we were looking for a relaxed New Year.
We were not disappointed.

Ideally we don't take dogs on holiday but our usual kennels took a break this new year so took them this time, reason we don't normally take them is places that accept dogs usually not the cleanest. This is really not the case for Rowan, not only is it spotless it has everything you would need. As far as I could tell the only thing it didn't have was a dishwasher or hoover, and do you really need these when you are on holiday?
Owners met us on arrival and gave us a quick introduction to property and demonstrated heating etc, both very friendly and helpful said they were next door if we needed anything - we didn't but got the impression if we asked anything they would have been happy to help, told us some nice places to visit for walks with the dogs.
Great break and couldn't fault in any way would happily recommend and hopefully we will return, maybe try and hit better weather next time as area looked lovely but in battering wind and rain we got sure it was not at its best . That said still great and like I say we will hopefully return.

We were met by a very nice and friendly Sylvia and provided with fresh eggs and flowers lovely touch the cabin has everything you need for your stay and a new large screen tv has recently been put in, A great view over the fields to the Orkneys with other fields of sheep and cows and the family dogs three cats and several chickens and a very proud cockerel, as with all holiday lets the population is ageing and the installation of grab rails in the shower over bath would be a great help and the settees are rather low, it is very quiet of a night with the only sound heard as mentioned by other guests is the mechanical timer for the heating in the hall (digital timers are quiet) but all said we had a lovely stay
