Guest Comments

We had a lovely week and it really was home from home. Everything was immaculate and Danny and Annette (the owners) were very helpful and welcoming. The layout of the cottage is perfect and the Black Isle and surrounding area is beautiful.
Carol, Leicestershire : 23rd July, 2016

The accommodation was clean, the location ideal and the owners couldn't have been more helpful.
Denise, Lowestoft : 25th June, 2016

It is very clear that Danny and Annette have gone into every detail. Craobhan cottage is very well equipped and lovingly furnished. The cottage has a "lived in" feeling about it and it did not take my wife and I long to relax in its surroundings. It is perfectly located within the Black Isle for exploring to the North, West and East. Dingwall and Inverness are within easy reach. My wife and I enjoyed the remoteness of the cottage and being out in the countryside.

William, Gillingham : 5th March, 2016

The accommodation was warm, cosy, clean and immaculate and everything there for your needs....wonderful.

Denis, France : 3rd September, 2015

We liked the location of cottage ,and easy access to other areas,the cottage is very well equipped and kept in pristine condition after a day out was a pleasure to the come back to the cottage all in all an excellent vacation.
Victor, Runcorn : 5th August, 2015

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed in. The hosts were excellent and made us feel at home straight away.The property was very high spec, impeccably clean, very comfortable and homely. The internal layout and configuration was perfect and would be suitable for any one even with limited mobility. The location was ideal, peaceful and relaxing, but only a short drive to Inverness and a great base to explore the North and West of Scotland.
John, Billericay : 5th August, 2015

Accommodation very clean, very quiet and the owners were very friendly and attentive. The girls loved playing wth and walking the dogs.
Richard, Ayr : 5th August, 2015

Lovely comfortable accommodation in a quiet countryside location. The property was well equipped and provided an excellent base for us to explore the Black Isle & beyond. A warm welcome was received from the owners and we will be back. We also enjoyed the abundant bird life attending the garden feeders. Already booked for next year.
Mike, Bury : 4th June, 2015

The cottage is fantastic, the area is superb and the owners are second to none.
Alex, Darvel : 20th April, 2015

The accommodation was excellent in all respects. Great attention to detail and cleanliness. Very well equipped. The owners were brilliant, exceedingly helpful and nothing too much trouble. We stayed for two weeks and had a change of bed linen and towels midway which was much appreciated. The ample supply of towels was particularly appreciated as this is not always the case with self-catering and as we had flown up it is not easy to bring supplies with us. We appreciated the little touches of wine, fresh flowers, tea/coffee, biscuits and foil!!! The setting is superb and location perfect for discovering the Black Isle, the East Coast as well as within easy reach of the West Coast and even Skye. We hope to return.
Jill & ian, Swansea : 10th December, 2014

The cottage was superb, very well looked after by Danny & Annette and was spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high standard. The Black Isle is a wonderful area to stay in, it's so peaceful and quiet with great wildlife to look at, yet you're only a short drive away from everything that you need. Danny & Annette were superb hosts and their hospitality was second to none. We would return to Craobhan Cottage in a flash, and hopefully will get the chance to do so again one day.
Erin, London : 3rd June, 2014

Wonderful accommodation, very well furnished and equipped. Comfy beds, good heating and very hot water.The garden bird feeders were so well attended that, at times, it was difficult to tear ourselves away from the window to go out for the day.
Ian, Hastingwood : 18th May, 2014
