    We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Caithness, and Gladstone Cottage was our perfect holiday base. The cottage was clean, tidy and warm, and contained everything we needed. A characterful cottage dating back to 1880, we loved the high ceiling height and window shutters. And the view of the garden was lovely to see, especially first thing in the morning. We were very warmly welcomed by Jan and Alan, and it was a pleasure meeting them both.

    Really excellent break for us. Jan and Alan were excellent hosts, very helpful and kind if we wanted to know anything. The cottage was warm and comfortable, a real home from home, with everything you could ever need for a break at hand. Would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a nice base for a holiday in the highlands, and we will definitely be visiting again soon. Thanks for a really nice stay.

    Jan was a great host -- she got me settled and showed me to the best places to visit in the community. The cottage is right near the center of the village, an easy walk to the pub and some hiking trails. It had everything I needed and was very comfortable.

    An absolute delight, the “cottage” is attached to the owners own home and is a real home from home. Comfortable furniture, plenty of space for two (pets are also welcome) and a really comfortable bed. The place has character and we fell in love with it. The hosts are particularly welcoming and Jan’s first words when we arrive were “the kettle’s boiled” – most welcome after a long drive. Full of information and ideas they are a great source of inspiration and are there if you need them but are not in your face either.

    We found this cottage to be ideal for a week exploring the surrounding area. The cottage is well equipped and the owners who live nearby are extremely friendly and helpful.

    The cottage was like home from home. Everything was catered for. There were dog beds and blankets for my 2 dogs plus feeding bowls and welcome biscuits. I was not left out as I also had biscuits (not dog biscuits). Lovely holiday and perfect location. Will visit again
