    A fabulous cottage in a wonderful setting. We immediately felt at home. Spotlessly clean and well equipped, it is in an excellent location for visiting the many beautiful areas of the Highlands. There was a warm welcome from the owner upon arrival. We can't wait to go back!

    Excellent cottage in a wonderful location that is perfect for sightseeing the highlands of Scotland. We watched red squirrels feeding every morning before going out and about and you have a choice of 3 walks direct from the cottage. The host was very friendly and helpful and provided us with a very nice welcome pack and flowers. I would recommend this cottage to everyone and will definitely be booking again soon.

    Fantastic holiday cottage! Very comfortable and the surroundings were great. We saw red squirrels in the garden every morning. Owner's left bread, butter, milk and teabags. Nice touch. Definitely come back again.

    We have now had 3 visits to Squirrel Cottage and each time found the welcome and whole experience truly satisfying. Christmas 2017 made extra special during our stay with the peace and amazing surroundings plus additional personal touches made by the owners. Jane and I will return as the location and accommodation make it perfect for exploring the Highlands. We are looking forward to returning in the spring to enjoy another break and we can honestly say Squirrel Cottage feels like an extended home. Connecting peace, the wildlife and comfortable environment to make for relaxing and indeed perfect holiday. Big thank you to the owners..!

    We enjoyed a wonderful stay in perfect surroundings. The location is perfect... Feels like you're in the middle of the forest, yet it is only a 5 minute drive from the centre of Inverness. The cottage is clean and homely. A perfect base for exploring this wonderful part if the world. We saw red squirrels in the garden every day and even deer outside the front window. There is no WiFi or phone signal which makes it an escape and exactly what we wanted. A real home away from home.
