Lovely cottage, beautiful location only downside was the mattresses on double and single beds were too hard and lack of additional pillows (we had to purchase an extra 3 pillows). Also sofa feathers were coming out of cushions and lack of bulbs in the the bedroom lamps. In addition there was no welcome pack which normally come as standard with Gael Holiday Cottages, once again apart from these niggles we had a lovely holiday in a fantastic cottage.
Great base for wild life lovers

Lovely location at the rear of the property but the cottage is very close to (the master bedroom windows are about 10 feet from it) a road used by tractors and lorries at all hours. We had disturbed sleep every night. Needs soundproofing at the front. Numerous light bulbs were dead, including both bedside lamps in the master bedroom, with no spares. The cistern kept jamming and so we had to take the lid off and work it from inside most times. The sofa is not great and the mattress is uncomfortable with only one very thin inadequate pillow each (we had to buy more on the second day). Apart from that, great, kitchen was well equipped and the decor was ok.

Rien à redire pour cette charmante maison de village mitoyenne, spacieuse, refaite à neuf. Vue sur la mere et ses marées (seul bémol : les puits de pétrole peu romantiques) Literie confortable. Bref nickel Points négatifs : la circulation sur la rue assez bruyante le matin en face de la chambre et le jardinier venu le dernier jour nous réveiller à 8h !!! (Très désagréable pour notre dernier réveil avant le voyage retour !)
Good ,Bad and the Ugly.

So good is the Area ,RSPB hide a minutes walk away and quick to access Chandory Point (dolphin watching ). Cottage was clean ,tidy and acceptable . No hot water on arrival. Bad was the terrible smell coming from the fridge ,which got stronger as the week wore on and permeated the dining area and lounge every time the door was opened. Stomach churning to say the least. Ugly was the garden with the Grass at thigh height . Had to contact the owner on arrival ,who organised for this to be cut 4 days later. Then grass was left so if we id utilise garden ,grass stuck all over our shoes. We had a dog with us so inevitable we wanted to utilise the garden. We understood the garden led down to the beach ,which it does however there is no steps to access the beach .Unless you can jump down 2 meters and then be able to climb back up, this was very disappointing.
Absolutely the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in.

The booking system with Gael holidays was simple, staff were very friendly and the cost was less then quoted on other sites! Reviews suggested a lack of cleaning products but everything we needed was supplied. The bedding and towels were lovely, clean and fresh. The cottage was very clean and tidy when we arrived too. The beds were very comfortable. Heating was fabulous, despite it being cold over the Christmas break. Plenty of hot water for 3 adults. All the appliances were easy to use and in clean, new condition. The setting is wonderful, and easy to park etc. Our only feedback, not a criticism, was that having older people as guests, a handrail in the bath/shower would have been useful and the comfy chairs didn't have arms so were a bit more difficult to get out of, but the seatee was very suitable and a good height. We would highly recommend Langlands Cottage and will be looking at booking it again. I would also use Gael holidays again, and look at their other properties.
Simply the best...(we ever had)

Ein wunderschönes Cottage. Frisch renoviert. Mit allem Komfort. Es fehlt gar nichts. Mitten in der Natur. Ideal für Natur- und Tierliebhaber. Unbedingt empfehlenswert.
Lovely cottage but bring your own toilet paper!

Lovely cottage, beautifully refurbished in a very pretty location. Our only disappointment was that there was no coffee, sugar or even toilet paper, or logs, all of which were promised in the advance information. Had they not been mentioned we would have brought them with us and avoided the half hour round trip to get them. In case spare logs and toilet paper were locked away, I texted the owner (as instructed in advance info and the property file) to find out, but heard nothing from her at all during the week we were there.

Beautiful cottage - clean, well equipped and modern. Couple of issues - garden needs some attention and is certainly not dog safe! Had to rescue pup from beach, neighbours garden and from side alley leading to road! Sofa, whilst lovely, is most uncomfortable. No welcome "pack" as such but some teabags and cleaning products around kitchen. Apart from that, would love to return to Langlands Cottage as the area is a birdwatchers paradise! Views of Cromarty firth exceptional.
Such a great wee place, we'll be back.

We had a lovely time in this cottage. Idyllic situation right beside the Cromarty Firth with birdsong in the morning and evenings. We'll be back!

This cottage is clean and everything is new. The location is stunning and in a little village and backs onto the sea. Even our dog felt at home although he wasnt keen on the cats that wandered through the garden. Would highly recommend and go back ourselves. Everything is provided including washing powder/dishwasher tablets.

The cottage was in an excellent position for birdwatchers like ourselves. Newly refurbished the cottage lacked any wardrobe. A cupboard in the main bedroom which had a hanging rail was full with the hoover and the empty hoover box. I personally felt uncomfortable on the seating in the living room, and I think there are a few niggling problems in the bathroom which hopefully will be fixed shortly. Despite this we enjoyed our holiday.
Sunny week in the Highlands

This was a small cottage in a lovely part of the Highlands and the weather was extremely good for Scotland. The cottage was in a remote area with no shops close. This was the first cottage I have stayed in where they had not left any sort of a welcome package. The last cottage provided shortbread, a bottle of wine, oatcakes, milk etc. This cottage also had cheap furniture which was not robust and we felt that we could sit on a couple of the kitchen chairs nor sleep in the single bed, there was extremely limited hanging storage and even in the main bedroom the cupboard housed both the hoover and its box separately. Even if this had been empty they only provided 4 hangers in each room. There was no DVD player, no books, no games and limited TV channels. While there was a washing machine and dryer there was no clothes line or clothes horse to dry clothes in the garden especially as the weather was so good. Finally through the week we returned home each day to a handful of dead and dying bees at the front door and had to sweep up their bodies daily. Overall we were not impressed with this cottage.

Needs storage in bedrooms and comfortable seating in living room. Needs to feel more homely. No pictures ,ornaments etc. Kitchen needs things like a fying pan and played out better. Dining chairs are very slack and need fixed. Bathroom needs a few things fixed.
Lynn Ellis (Owner) Reply on 25/04/2017
Thank you for your feedback. I have recently completed the full refurbishment of the cottage which included storage under the beds, bed side cabinets, wardrobe and clothes rail. A frying pan was in the kitchen but I will check to make sure it is where is should be and have the chairs looked at, thanks again for your points.
Jemimaville is a small village on the north coast of the Black Isle, not far from Cromarty. From the kitchen window and back garden guests can relax and take in the many bird spotting opportunities as Langlands is on the edge of the RSPB Udale Bay Nature reserve.
The town of Cromarty, around a 10-minute drive or 20-minute cycle ride, is where you will find a few shops and places to eat and drink as well as the well know Hugh Millers Cottage and Cromarty Courthouse Museum.
The towns of Rosemarkie, Fortrose and Dingwall are also within easy reach by car or bus. Inverness is around 35 minutes’ drive.
