Hillview Cottage is a great place for a large group (12-14 people) as spacious and plenty of room to have privacy (if needed). It was well equipped, very cosy and the hot tub was enjoyed tho' as it is advertised as "cottage with hot tub" was a little surprised that I had to pay extra to be able to use it.
The Internet was a little temperamental which meant those who wanted it found it a little frustrating.
The baby's cot was found to be broken the first night we stayed but was replaced quickly when we phoned the caretaker.
The kitchen floor was badly needing attention. We thought that previous residents had perhaps defrosted the fridge/freezer and water had spilt onto the wooden floor causing it to swell - whatever - it was a danger and could easily result in a bad trip especially from an older/ younger party member. The cooker hood/food mixer weren't working and perhaps the kitchen itself could do with a lick of paint.
All the bedrooms were clean and tidy but again the showers/ bathroom could do with a clean and freshen up.
The surrounding area is, of course, beautiful with lovely walks etc

Enjoyed ourselves! Will be coming again!
Place is very large and the hot tub was a lot of fun!
Kitchen has room for everything and they have all the towels you can use!
Large house with all the comforts of home. Well equipped kitchen,lots of living space, comfortable bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, not forgetting the hot tub! We spent a family holiday with 3 generations and 2 dogs. Well situated within Glenlivet Estate. Beautiful views and walks all round. My grand daughter, who is 4, said of the view over the valley "you can see the whole wide world!" Happy memories of this holiday and hope to return one day. Would definitely recommend
12 of us stayed at Hillview in June 2014. The house is incredibly spacious, with plenty of room to accomodate 12 people comfortably. The house is clean and well furnished, exactly what you would expect, and the hot tub outside is a great feature. Would thoroughly recommend Hillview to anyone looking for a big group get-together, will definitely be visiting again soon.
Had a fantastic stay at Hillview, the cottage is very tastefully done, it had plenty of space for 12. The location is stunning and being able to enjoy the hot tub in the glorious sunshine really made it! What a lovely weekend in such a lovely part of the country. Thanks to Colin and Lisa for coming to clean the hot tub each day. We hope to return in the future and stay at the other accommodation Great Rental Properties have available. Many thanks
