    Very comfortable accommodation and a good base for getting about. Beautiful river and forrest walks right from the door. Scenery is just breathtaking. Photographs don’t do it justice you have to see it for yourself. We stayed in October and the Autumn colours were amazing and the weather was good. Would highly recommend a stay at this property and hope to return one day soon.

    super location for touring north of Scotland, roads are good and supermarket within 20 minutes, small shop closer. Cottage has everything you need for two, peace and quiet guaranteed. Lovely walks from the cottage, close to waterfall. This was our second visit to Drovers Rest and would love to return again.
