    "S22882 was a good, family-friendly and simple base for our family of six (plus our dog) to explore the north of Scotland. The cottage was clean & tidy upon arrival and everything worked correctly. Whilst some of the decor is a bit dated, we believe this is reflected in the cost. Overall, we felt the cottage represented good value for money.The cottage used to be a stable for the disused mill in the same grounds, which is full of history and very interesting to read about. Also next to this property is a bridge that was built by viking settlers around 1,000 years ago. A stoney beach is a short walk away, just follow the stream behind the property down to the sea.Duncansby Head offers stunning views of the famous sea stacks and plenty of opportunities for birdwatching, as does nearby Dunnet Head. We saw fulmars, kittiwakes, herring gulls, guillemots, razorbills, oystercatchers and shags during our time there. A good number of common seals have made Gills Bay harbour their home, in case you initially struggle to find them (as we did). Puffin Croft (the petting zoo) in JoG is small but excellent, our children loved it.We took the ferry out to Orkney to visit the Italian Chapel, the Standing Stones of Stenness, the Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae, as this was easy to do being so close to the Gills Bay - St Margarets Hope ferry. This was a great day out and we really recommend making the effort to go.Only basic food items are available in John o' Groats itself, but major supermarkets can be found in Thurso and Wick which are not very far away.The owner would have appreciated better communication from us and better accuracy as regards arrival time, so this is worth keeping in mind when you make arrangements for key collection.Our only feedback is to try to address the temperature inside the property. Old wall-mounted electric heaters provide warmth and are effective, but cannot be left on overnight for safety reasons, so the temperature inside the property drops considerably (I should point out the temperature outside was between 0 - 4 degrees throughout our stay). A draught excluder for the front door could be a quick-win.People staying at this cottage during a cold time of year should take extra blankets, be prepared to sleep in their clothes and make full use of the 3 x hot water bottles that are provided. I wouldn't expect this to be an issue during summer months and we would stay again at a warmer time of year."

    "We stayed in S22882 (as well as Horseman’s and Mill Cottage, owned by the same person) with friends in October 2017.Please see reviews of other properties to get a fuller picture but to say that we were disappointed with a group of properties would be an understatement. The Cottage was dirty. We had to clean the woodwork on arrival and it was like it had not been cleaned in some time. In fact the general foistiness and dated decor and bedding made us think it had not been booked out in some time. The bathroom was extremely grubby and my friend felt she had to thoroughly clean it before she would wash her children in there. All this would have been bearable without a phone call a week from the owner after our return claiming that WE had left the properties in an unacceptable state! She claimed that there was some pen on the duvet cover and towels that she had been unable to get out, when I asked for photographic proof of this, given that I found it very hard to believe given the state of the bedding she had provided, unsurprisingly she wasn’t able to provide any. She claimed that the tea towels (of which she had provided one already grubby tea towel per property!) were unclean! On leaving we all cleaned the properties as thoroughly as should be expected from a holiday rental (especially given that a cleaning fee was included in the booking cost) and left them in a perfectly clean and tidy state. Some might say, nicer than when we arrived.I have never been more disappointed with a property and especially the rude behaviour of the owner. She was very unreasonable about key collection times and any of the queries we made before our arrival. If you don’t mind slightly grubby, extremely dated properties to stay in be my guest, but be prepared for a mid-holiday inspection (yes, she called around on some pretext of sorting key drop offs but very clearly was sizing the places up as she later made comments about things being untidy and out of place when she had called) and probably a phone call a week later complaining that you didn’t shine the shower screen before you left. If you are a more reasonable sort and that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, then I recommend that you keep well away!"

    "Disappointment is the key word. While the cottage was clean inside the steps and area outside was covered in ingrained dirt and moss and with loose pavers was a liability and an accident waiting to happen. The broom leaning against the cottage also had moss growing on it and obviously hadn't been moved or used for a long time. Overgrown trees meant minimal sun. When I arrived I could not get the TV to work . At least I had my iPad. The next day the TV was still not working and no response from either of the owners phone numbers or by knocking on the owners door. The lovely gent in the next cottage spent hours trying to make it work. Still no response from owners. I had 3 nights without TV and after multiple calls came home on the 3 rd night to find someone had retuned the TV . However that night the tv switched itself off again . I eventually met the owner on the 4 th day and he bought a repair man the day before I left. By this stage the tv was working. It wasn't so much the lack of the TV as the inability to get hold of the owners. The shower was pretty pathetic. Over the last 4 months I have stayed in cottages all over Britain and this was the most expensive and worse value for money."

    "This cottage is perfect for a ’get away from the rat-race’ break being in a gorgeous secluded area, whilst still only being a 10 min drive from Inverness and within each reach of all the tourist attractions. The owners are lovely and even provide fresh eggs from the resident hens! Beautiful walks are right on your doorstep literally, as you get straight on to Ord Hill from a gate at the rear of the cottage. The cottage is cosy and very clean and provides all the basics you need. Inverness has a fantastic selection of restaurants and good shopping, and there are various craft workshops etc in the outlying areas. We were disappointed that we didn’t see any dolphins at Chanonry Point where we had usually been lucky, but on a visit to Fort George they made an appearance - that was the icing on the cake for my husband’s birthday! I can certainly recommend Eagle’s Nest - we certainly will return! June 2012."

    "Lovely area...Cottage in need of updating. Mattress very hard,old & thin, put spare duvets on to try to make more comfortable, but didn't help so left a day early.Plagued by flies for most of our stay. Found they were coming out of boarded up chimney so had to buy fly sprays and constantly killing and cleaning up dead flies.Mentioned to owner very little response including no reimbursement for anything.This really put a dampener on our stay. There are other issues which need addressing but this was enough for us to leave a day early."
