“Small but perfectly formed.”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Dunedin cottage was lovely. The cottage is small but was ok for our group (two adults and a five year old).

The views are stunning and the house very well equipped. I don't think we once thought we were missing something.

Therese was lovely and welcoming but otherwise left us to get on.

The house is also very well located for Elgin and visiting the rest of the area.

My only recommendation would be to put a sign on the road to help find the house that first time.

If we were up in Elgin again would definitely book here again.

Thanks for a great stay.

“Lovely house in Elgin”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The location is perfect for various trips in the area. The house was perfect for the four of us. Lovely beds and everything you need is comming in handy. The house was very clean. The owners are very friendly. Graham has caught worms with our boys for fishing. They loved it! When we left they received another bowl of fresh worms for our next stop in Oban. @ Graham: The worms were perfect for the fish in Oban. They caught a lot of mackerel!

“I was nervous as my husband booked this.... I was impressed!”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We were travelling to a family wedding in Elgin which we decided would be the start of our holiday up North, I booked everything but the Wedding trip I left that to my husband, when he told me how much he paid for the accommodation I have to say I had my doubts up until we arrived at the cottage.

Lets just say its immaculate throughout, modern touches and even better than a 5 star hotel family room (which is what we normally book).

Its easy to find first left after the Grove old folks home across the field. What a perfect start to our holiday, it was dark when we arrived and our lovely host met us and showed us around without any fuss.

Beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms. A lovely surprise in the morning to see farmland and a gorgeous flock of sheep as our view.

As a hotel snob I cannot recommend this cottage enough, we will be back at some point to explore the area.

Thank you so much you for your dedication to your business it clearly shines through your property.

Thanks again
The Callans

“Great location as a base to explore the area”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Cosy place to stay with peaceful rural outlook all around yet only two minutes drive from Elgin with all its facilities. It was very clean with all the stuff you need, great bathroom/shower and fab views from the back of the house. Great place to be based to explore the area's attractions such as the beautiful Findhorn Bay and Lossiemouth's stunning beach. The owners next door were warm, friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend it and would stay here again :)

“Fabulous Rental Property with Great Hosts!”
Reviewed 31 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Booked Dunedin as part of Xmas trip to the UK. Property was modern, very clean, had all needed amenities, and location was ideal being just on the outskirts of Elgin (close enough to be minutes from the town center, but country enough for peace and quiet). Views from the cottage were beautiful, and owners could not have been more helpful. When we arrived they gave us the full run through on the property including appliances, heating etc... (which was great). Our teenage daughter appreciated the WiFi ! Would certainly recommend Dunedin to anyone planning a trip to the Morayshire area. When we're back in the UK, we'll certainly be making this our base.

“Lovely stay - everything was very nice”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned home from a 2-night stay at this property and we were delighted by everything. Location was good, just a 15/20 minute walk into Elgin. Scenery is spectacular and view from landing windows beautiful. Everything was clean and tidy and we had 2 double bedrooms. I travelled with my partner and his mother and it was perfect for our requirements. The owner showed us round when we arrived, showed us how things worked etc and told us just to knock if we needed anything at all. It was nice to know that assistance was available if required but she didn't hover around and told us to make ourselves at home. I would definitely recommend this properly to family and friends and I am sure we will be back. Thank you Therese.
