    we enjoyed our stay tremendously, Jan and Alan were really helpful, lovely people. We like the peace and quiet which is why we go away in March, some places of interest were open but with the beaches on the north coast west of Thurso, you are spoilt for choice for beach walks. The cottage is cosy and comfortable with everything we needed plus some, we stayed for two weeks and spent many of the days out and about. We think we might even try it in summer.

    A great welcome for us and our dog. All the little extras that we and the dog would need during our stay was catered for. We would not hesitate in recommending Gladstone Cottage.

    Just a fantastic stay. We were greeted on the doorstep by the owner who ensured we had everything we needed. The accommodation was wonderful and well placed for a plethora of activities. A wonderful experience which I will never forget.

    The cottage was in a good location to allow us to visit everywhere we wanted. We were given a warm welcome by Jan & Alan and a quick run down of the cottage facilities. It was fully equipped with everything we needed. It would have been better to have direct access to the garden from the cottage instead of having to enter from the pavement. Overall we were fairly happy with the cottage and would recommend it.

    Lovely cottage, every facility you would need. Owners are a lovely couple and always helpful with advice on local places to visit. Lots of places to visit without traveling for hours. Highly recommend this cottage.
