What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Lochyside To Rent.
Lewis - verified booking
"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."

"The cottage is in a beautiful position where you can sit and watch the rolling waves all day from virtually every window in the house. I marvelled over the delicacy of the imitation white bloomed roses until I realised, after two days, they were real - what a lovely surprise to have fresh flowers this time of the year. Everything you could possibly need was available in this cottage and you could see it was lovingly cared for by the owners. Our dogs were made welcome with their own goodie basket and we were pleased to find one for us as well. Given the weather across Scotland last week I can say we were very cosy at all times and loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom. We will certainly book again as would love to see that area in Spring next time. Thank you to the owners for our welcome and very enjoyable stay."

"If you are looking for a holiday rental with all mod cons then this property won't be for you. If you like quirky and quaint S22883 has it all. It was possibly the servants 'wing of a large country house at one time and still has lots of period features. We loved the location - it is very secluded and we had the courtyard to ourselves as the Ivy Wing was not occupied. It had a large bath which was great for a soak. Perhaps if you are less mobile this might be a problem as it is high to step into.There was no mobile phone signal but the WiFi worked well so we could use WhatsApp. Louise -the owner- gave us some beautiful flowers from her garden along with a lovely bottle of wine and some tablet. It was an ideal spot to tour around the North Highlands - we had a great week."
Mr Morris - verified booking
"The location of the property was perfect for touring the beautiful surrounding areas that are basically on your doorstep. The northern highlands seem to have their own identity which seems to mark them out for wanting to tour and see as much of them as possible. The very remoteness of this part of Scotland which takes you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living is in itself a big bonus along with amazing scenery, quiet roads and lots of fresh air! There's also some good nice beaches within short driving distances from the property, Thurso and Wick are really worth visiting for some nice restaurants or if some retail therapy is needed. We would certainly come again."
