    "S22733 is a well presented and comfortably furnished holiday cottage. It was a great place to spend our Christmas holiday and we had a very peaceful and relaxing time there. Our accommodation was of a very good quality and was warm and well-heated, and was well thought out and immaculately clean. We were delighted to receive a very kind and welcome Christmas gift of chocolates and champagne on arrival, which was amazing and made a lovely start to the holiday. We can only compliment the owner for their kindness and courtesy, and any communications that we had to make with the owner or any queries that we had prior to the holiday were dealt with in a friendly and helpful manner.The cottage was full of character and was traditionally styled and had on display some beautiful photographs of the local area and some large framed ordnance survey maps, which were both decorative and informative, and became a very useful guide for planning our days out in the local area. Ideal for families or keen walkers, the cottage is situated in the highland village of Kingussie, which is within the Cairngorms National Park and is well-placed for exploring the Rothiemurchus Estate and the Cairngorms, the area around Fort William and the Ben Nevis Range, Inverness or the Loch Ness area, and within a forty- five minute drive through the dramatic and rugged pass of Drumochter, the scenic highland villages of Pitlochry and Blair Atholl can be found, with Blair Castle and Lochs Tummel and Rannoch not too far away. Dalwhinnie distillery and Loch Ericht, the Creagh Meagaidh Nature Reserve and the cycle paths at Laggan, and Loch Laggan are between about a 15 or 40 minutes drive. The area around Loch Laggan and the Ardverikie Estate were some of the film locations for the popular,” Monarch of the Glen” TV series, and parts of the more recent “Outlander” drama series were filmed in the Abernethy forest and the Cairngorms. So, there were plenty of beautiful and interesting places for us to visit within easy reach of the cottage and not too far away. S22733 was nicely styled in a way that reflected its surroundings and there was a lovely Scottish flavour to the styling of the cottage. The furniture was quite traditional, and some individual pieces of furniture had been reupholstered in traditional fabrics and tartan and the owner had arranged around the cottage some beautiful photographs and artwork connected with the local area and had placed alongside the sofa a basket of lovely tartan throws. The lounge is a good size and was very cosy and welcoming and had been decorated ready for Christmas. It was tastefully and comfortably furnished, and although quite traditional was also stylish and modern, and had a futon, a large comfy sofa and a high back armchair, and was a lovely room for us all to rest and relax in at the end of each day. The owner had provided a good selection of books and guides there about the local area and the wifi was efficient and worked fine whenever we wanted to use the internet.In the lounge and throughout the cottage as a whole, the owner had put together a good mix of traditional period and country style and had combined it with something quite modern and more contemporary. The main bedroom is well-presented and is an excellent size and had a fitted wardrobe and plenty of storage space. It was attractively styled and had on display some beautiful landscape photographs and a variety of Scottish tartans displayed in small frames. Both bedrooms were tastefully styled and had quite modern soft furnishings and bedding, but in the main bedroom there was a more traditional and stronger Scottish element to the styling and the bed there was draped with a beautiful tartan throw. The second bedroom is smaller and probably needs a slightly taller chest of drawers to provide a bit more storage, but again was beautifully presented and had more contemporary soft furnishings and had a lovely bright yellow traditional print blind on the window and a wonderful painting of a Scottish coastal landscape on the wall. To have a washroom and toilet upstairs and another bathroom downstairs was a bonus and was very convenient and saved on having to make journeys upstairs, and was invaluable in the mornings when we were getting ready to go out for the day. The kitchen is stunning and is part of quite a new large extension at the back of the cottage, which has been beautifully designed and has a raised ceiling in the roof space and skylight windows, and so is nice and bright and airy. This extension, though less traditional, blends well with the rest of the house and is very spacious and is quite contemporary. It is fitted with modern kitchen units and is well equipped and has a large fridge freezer, and all the usual labour saving appliances, including a dishwasher and washing machine. We spent quite a lot of time in this room, as it had a very cosy dining area down at one end, where we relaxed and had our meals around a big farmhouse table and looked at guide books and maps.Kingussie is a lovely highland village and was a good base for our holiday and the cottage is situated near the end of the main high street, so a supermarket and a variety of shops and some hotels/pubs are all close by. S22733 is at the end of a terrace of traditional grey stone Victorian houses and so benefits from having the added bonus of having a convenient parking space, which is off the road and immediately adjacent to the cottage. The only potential slight problem is that there is not much garden space on the same level as the cottage, however my husband found a patio table and chairs up at the top of a flight of stone steps, where there is a garden, with a view of the hills. These steps could be a problem for anyone with any mobility difficulties, but having said that the cottage is situated in such a beautiful area, with great mountain scenery to drive through, and at the time we were visiting during the winter months, this problem did not really matter. Also, the quality of the accommodation at S22733 is of such a very good standard, that it is worth making this slight compromise.We would strongly recommend S22733 cottage because it was so attractively presented and was quite spacious and was spotlessly clean. The owner had put a lot of thought into the arrangement of the facilities in the cottage and had included some nice personal decorative touches in the furnishing and decoration of the cottage and had a good sense of style. S22733 is close to so many beautiful places in this part of Scotland, which offer a variety of outdoor activities and experiences, but also the opportunity to just be in a very peaceful and tranquil environment, and as the cottage is situated in a village, it has the convenience of having good amenities just down the road. This is such a lovely property that we would love to be able to return there at some point in the future and would certainly recommend it as a holiday rental to anyone else."

    "We spent 3 nights at S38667. It is off the beaten track but the views are spectacular! We arrived to find tea, coffee & sugar provided along with a bottle of Prosecco chilling in the fridge with the milk! Flowers in the living room along with the wood burner already set up ready to go! The kitchen is very well equipped for anyone who wants to cook at home - everything is provided for... I even found a garlic press! The bathroom was lovely with fluffy towels provided. The beds were extremely comfortable & made up with good quality linen. This really is a "home from home" The stairs are a bit steep so be careful but apart from this it really was a lovely stay! The only downside is that is does not have an enclosed garden so be aware of this if you're taking your dog! If you're booked in to stay here you won't be disappointed. A visit to Dornoch beach is a must!"

    "Arrived cold November evening. No heating on so not welcoming. No instructions as to how to put heating on and not intuitive to sort out the boiler. Cottage I am afraid smelt of beer and damp. Whilst I recognise such stone cottages in rural Scotland may be damp the beer was unpleasant. No washing machine. Ok I should have looked at kitchen contents. A bit odd though not to have one.I was altogether sad and disappointed at the cottage. Photograph does not show how close it is to owner's house and another cottage. Parking was difficult to say the least. They gave me eggs which does not recompense for the event. Reviews in visitors book seemed good but I could not equate to them in my experience."

    "It'sNO we won't good base to stay in to travel around but that's the only positive thing going for this cottage.The won'ters wasn't very friendly, bordering on rude actually!! We had a hot water pipe on the sink in the bathroom burst on us the first evening we arrived. Although they got an emergency plumber very quickly to sort it out, the owners attitude with us wasn't very pleasant. We had to clean the kitchen & bathroom because it was dirty when we arrived, after travelling for 8 hours!! So no we wont be staying at that cottage ever again!!"

    "Cottage has real charm and good location, on the Babes in the Wood model. Negatives are that the bedroom, while cosy, is pretty cramped; some problems with the shower and some items of equipment are a bit sub-standard. But overall an enjoyable and unusual place to stay with good walks direct from the door, and easy car access to great places like Loch Ness, Glen Affric , Beauly, as well as Inverness. North Kessock itself has little to offer except the Dolphin Centre when in season."
