    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.

    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.
