    We had a wonderful week in Four Winds. We always have a week's holiday self catering in September and this is the best equipped cottage we have ever holidayed in. The location was great - a wonderful view over Orkney and some stunning beaches nearby. Bev and John had thought of everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday; we were really impressed. It was just the holiday we needed.

    A delightful cottage in a friendly village with far reaching views fron the rear of the property. We had a relaxing holiday with lots to explore. The cottage is one if the best equipped that I have ever visited. There was everything from dog treats to vinegar and lots of dishes etc - so many cottages have very few implements for cooking meals but Four Winds had everything we needed. The owners were friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble.

    Cottage was immaculately clean. The location is superb, with views northwards towards Orkney. All very comfortable inside, with thoughtfully collected information about the area.

    The owner's obviously take pride in their Cottage. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped, little extra's on arrival and the owner's were also very helpful and friendly. Lovely location, just a few minutes walk to the beach.

    Had a wonderful week at four winds. The location was perfect. Bev and John were on hand with any issues we had. The walk by the beach in melvich is a must. Try and get a hold of some peat for a perfect fire. Will come again.
