    Large detached bungalow but very dated and old fashioned. Kitchen and bathroom at least 30 years old. Even books on shelves from 70s and 80s. Whole place needs investing in, decorating and updating. Black out curtains or blinds needed in bedroom as very bright as soon as sun starts to come up. On positive side, bed very comfortable so slept well and bedding good. Washing machine and dishwasher handy. Garden nice, lots of birds to watch and small binoculars provided. Area very quiet so very peaceful. Thurso friendly with good access to north coast. Would be excellent accommodation if modernised.

    This was our third stay at the cottage, our only problem is the long train journey but when we do arrive its worth it! We feel so welcome as the owner leaves everything you need for a refreshing tea/coffee and biscuits. A lot of places leave nothing at all and that makes us feel unwelcome regardless of the actual cottage. Riverbank is a wonderful retreat and a base for exploring the area. A few lazy hours in the conservatory watching the wildlife are a must! As is the river walks, we are going back to the cottage again that is a certainty!

    This is a lovely spacious well equipped bungalow. It is centrally located for all local amenities with a Tesco at the end of the road. There is also a swimming pool within walking distance. I walked along the river with my dog every day and the local dog walkers were all friendly. There is lots of information about things to see and do within the bungalow to help you explore the area. As usual Scotland didn't let us down with 4 seasons in one day rain ,hail, sunshine and snow. But we are always prepared for every eventuality. We had a fabulous week and would definitely recommend this cottage.
