This is a great cottage. The owners are very hospitable and the cottage is so well kept. It's a beautiful home base from which to explore the highlands. It's also great to spend time at the cottage soaking in the views or going for long walks.

Management response:

Delighted you enjoyed your stay and that the weather was favourable allowing you to make the most of the cottage location. thank you very much for your custom.

A wonderful property set in a rural setting. Close to local amenities in Dingwall and Strathpeffer. Our host, Angus, went out of his way to make us feel welcome, including showing our three children the newborn lambs! Lovely welcome pack on arrival. Property very clean. Will definitely book again.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay and It was a pleasure showing the children round and letting them take part in the lambing activities. I missed them last night doing the feeding on my own!

The best value for money in the whole of Scotland, great central location, nice, well maintained house in the middle of the Highlands. Close to Inverness,strathpeffer,supermarket,distilleries, gas stations etc.Thanks again to The owners Angus and Fiona. They are very friendly people, concerned about you well-being during your holiday. No request is to much, not even Scottish premier league football tickets!

Management response:

It was a pleasure having you at Ivy Cottage and glad we were able to make your stay a pleasant one.

About the neighbourhood
If its peace and tranquillity you want from your Highland break then step out the back door (reliving the route Neil Gunn took for his daily walk) and walk for miles on end enjoying the wildlife and you are unlikely to meet another human being.

If you are on a golfing break then the challenging Strathpeffer hillside course is only a 5 minute drive away and at least 10 golf courses are available within a 30 minute drive including the Castle Stuart course.
Should you want to fish then s...
