There is a lovely welcoming hotel restaurant nearby and a shop just down the road.The house is very well equipped and well thought out. The beds are very comfortable for a good night sleep.Everything about the house is quality and immaculately clean.Thankyou"

    "We had a second wonderful holiday here in Sandy’s Hoose and the only comment I would make is to request a bar be added to the wardrobe in the master bedroom downstairs. The current hooks around the inside are very difficult to use."

    "What a lovely place to stay. Fantastic views. The house was very clean and well equipped. Would definitely recommend if you want a get away from it all break with walks on the beach."

    "Our fifth visit to this lovely holiday home. Warm, spacious and full of character. A hitch with the door lock was dealt with quickly and efficiently by the owner. We just love this house , and look forward to our next visit."

    "We had an amazing week in a fantastic cottage. Sandy's Hoose is well equipped and one of the best self-catering cottages we have stayed in. Loved the location, the views are just wonderful. We can't wait to return."

    "We enjoyed our August week at Sandy’s Hoose. The house was very comfortable and well-equipped with all we needed for four adults and two children (4 and 6). The children appreciated the garden at the back and we all loved being so close to the beach. We did have to take care crossing the road - I was surprised at how many cars drove by at speed, apparently unaware that children might be crossing. We had a few cooler days and it was easy to keep the house warm. It was very cozy in front of the wood-burning stove. The only problem we had with the house was with the front door key which was quite difficult to turn it in the lock."

    "It is a perfect house whether you know the area or notThere’s a wonderful guide book in the house with all sorts of recommended trips, places as a regular visitor to the area I didn’t even know aboutThe equipment in the house is first class. This is a family home well looked after by the family that own it. Chest of kids toys, games in the shed, dog stuff.The little entrance area, you can just sit for hours on the sofa watching the water and birds. It really is the perfect view.Thank you for the welcome treat also."

    "The best property we have ever stayed in in Scotland which we visit every year. Top class furnishings and equipment, very spacious and clean. Very generous welcome package. The front porch was spacious and comfortable with stunning views across the Dornoch Firth to the Sutherland mountains. Friendly pretty village with cafes and restaurants and well stocked village store. Will definitely be back next year!"
    Freya ‐ 18 Jun 2018
    "Really thoughtful owners who had gone above and beyond with providing all we could need. Sandy's Hoose is in a stunning location: the vista over the Dornoch firth towards Sutherland could be enjoyed both from the west facing sun porch or by stepping straight out on to the beach."
    Tom ‐ 29 May 2018
    "A wonderful house with a stunning garden at the back and seaviews over a perfect beach at the front. The owner left a very considerate welcome pack too. Ten out of ten."
    Mike ‐ 28 May 2018
    "Lovely place, lovely location. The rear conservatory is perfect for breakfasting and the front conservatory is a great location to sit and look across at the beach and ever changing sky. The beds were really comfortable and we slept really well."
