Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

The Gables Cottage - super stay August 2023
Lovely two weeks spent at an immaculately clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage. There is a large garden which looks down across the bay towards the Summer Isles. Gorgeous location with stunning views. A warm welcome from the owners, who were friendly and available to answer any questions, but never intrusive. Almost reluctant to praise it too highly lest we find it booked up far in advance next time we're planning a stay in Polbain! We'd return, for sure.

Lovely cottage in a stunning location
Perfect cottage with everything you need for a relaxing trip away from it all. Beds are very comfortable, everything in the house was so clean - comprehensive measures in place re COVID-19, felt very reassured. Lovely enclosed garden with splendid sea views. Great location for exploring the local area - stunning beaches, walks and wildlife. A unique area of Scotland, probably our favourite! Recommend highly.

The Perfect Cottage
Immaculately clean throughout and a well-furnished kitchen. If you contact the locale store in Achilitibuie, which we did, they can arrange to deliver food before you arrive - and it was so nice to come to the end of our drive up and find the wine chilling in the fridge and the shelves full of local produce. In terms of 21st C appliances each room has ample power sockets so there's no fighting over who gets to recharge what first as can happen on holidays! Internet was faster than expected for the area, and the cottage is well covered by wifi though in the farthest bedroom from the router the signal does drop a bit in strength. Television picture too was clear, and used occasionally when the weather obscured the view from the windows out across the bay. Central heating throughout so no matter the winds blowing outside the interior remains comfortable. There's a great view covering a few of the Summer Isles and the building itself is distant enough from the nearest neighbour for the quiet only to be broken by sheep and cows in the nearby fields. I can't recommend it highly enough.

The Gables
We had a fantastic stay at The Gables. The property is spotlessly clean, modern and in a amazing spot overlooking the sea and isles. The kitchen is well equipped, living room very comfortable and the beds are incredible. We highly recommend this property and Linda the owner made the booking process etc very easy. Thank you.

Perfect Getawat
We had the most amazing 4 nights at the Gables. When we arrived we were blown away by the location. As others mention, the conservatory is perfect for sitting gazing out at the gorgeous views of the Summer Isles..and it’s heated so even when the suns not out it’s lovely and toasty! The house is lovely- super comfy beds and very clean and tidy. This is literally the best dog friendly place we’ve stayed in. Apart from friendly touches like the dog bowls, you wouldn’t know dogs had been there, it’s that tidy!! Linda had left some delicious home made jam and shortbread and the worlds best Easter Brownies - which were perfect energy replacements on the local walks! The location is about 10 min walk from Auchiltibuie, Where there is a Shop and a nice hotel for food. For lunches in the piping cafe are great and again very dog friendly. The cottage has everything you would need in the kitchen, soap, big fluffy towels and great views from all rooms! Nearby behind the cottage is a lovely walk up Fairie hill, and we really enjoyed Inverkirkcaig waterfalls and the fantastic Stac Pollaidh. All in All a great holiday! Thanks Linda- we’ll be back!!

Amazing stay
Gables Cottage is warm welcoming and well equiped with comfortable beds and good quality bedding. The views are amazing (maybe cut back the willows?) and we were lucky to have beautiful weather and amazing sunsets. Linda was most welcoming with treats left for us and the table set. I was recommended Gables Cottage by a friend who had stayed previously and was not disappointed. A lovely cottage in a splendid location.
