    "Very relaxing, a very clean and comfortable home will defiantly be booking again"
    Andrew ‐ 28 Sep 2019
    "Roslyn has stunning views and is walking distance from the village and the nearest beach. The cottage is very well furnished and equipped with everything we could possibly need! A good deal of thought and work had obviously been put into the cleaning and preparation of the accommodation prior to our arrival. We would certainly use Roslyn in future if we were to return to the north coast and would recommend it to other people. Great coastal, forest and beach walks locally and brilliant to be able to take our Labradors on holiday with us!"

    "Lovely cottage located with excellent views over the mouth of the River Naver and the extensive beaches on the west side of the river. Though it is on the NC500 route the road never seemed busy when we were there. We did a lot of mileage when we were staying as we wanted to see lots across the whole of the North of Scotland but be aware that the nearest fuel (we found) was 20 odd miles away in Thurso.Garden is dog friendly though if it is a small dog it could get under the gate as the drive does have a cross slope to it or through the fence in a couple of locations.Facilities in the house were excellent we only needed to fire up the heating a couple of times as we were running out of hot water.Welcome pack provided by the owner was appreciated."

    "An overall fantastic stay in a very well kept and comfy cottage with views that are unbelievable. Surrounding area was stunning with pristine white sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs and an array of wildlife from deers to seals and puffins. Would definitely recommend and would love to return"

    Steve ‐ 21 Jun 2019
    "Amazing location with most spectacular views from the cottage. Roslyn is clean and comfortable with well a equipped kitchen and a nice fresh airy feel about it.. Hosts made us feel very welcome and made the extra effort with little treats and calling in to check during our stay.Its central location along the main East-West A836, allow for maximum exploration of both sides of this amazing coast line."
    Michael ‐ 21 Jun 2019
    "Beautiful house in a very beautiful spot, a little remote for general shopping etc, but nevertheless the beauty outways the needs of shopping!"
    Phil ‐ 7 Jun 2019
    "Spotlessly clean, well equipped, well furnished and decorated. This cottage is one of the best presented that we have stayed at, it is a real credit to the owner and the homely touches she has brought to the property. Add to all of that the stunning views from every window and you have the perfect holiday getaway."
    Robert ‐ 28 May 2019
    "Lovely cottage in a beautiful location, views from all windows. Great welcome pack & kind assistance with washing machine. Homely feel with great attention to the small details."
    Stuart ‐ 13 May 2019
    "Thanks to Amanda for the warm welcome, the little presents and the card, were much appreciated. The cottage is much larger than the photos give credit, very comfortable and has everything you need. We were due a good relaxing holiday and that's exactly what we got. Down to Torrisdale Bay in the morning and sit and watch the tide come and go for the rest of the afternoon. We loved it and the dogs love it, the view from the garden was worth what we paid for the holiday. We don't normally visit the same place twice but for Roslyn cottage we will probably make an exception."
    Roy ‐ 6 May 2019
    "Sandra and Amanda couldn't do more for us.The property was warm and welcoming and well presented a real home from home.Would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend."

    "Immaculately clean, homely and cosy, Roslyn is perfectly located for visiting the best beaches on the north coast. The generous welcome pack was a lovely surprise on arrival."
