“Hidden gem that surpasses all expectations”
Reviewed 22 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We travelled to the Inverness area for a friend's wedding, and fortuitously stumbled across this fantastic gem of a cottage whilst trawling through a number of uninspiring hotels in the local area. Words do not do justice to just how fantastic this property is - our first impression being unspoilt picture perfect views of surrounding hills and forests, with the silence only broken by the breeding wading birds in the nearby fields. The property itself is absolutely delightful and incredibly comfortable - fully equipped with everything that you might need, and providing the perfect atmosphere for relaxation. The stand out factor for us was the exceptional hospitality shown to us by Mairi and her family - from ensuring that we arrived safely with fantastic directions (and to a kitchen stocked with food and shortbread to keep us sustained!) to generously offering us a lift to the wedding nearby. All in all, our experience was exceptional and I would wholeheartedly recommend this property in a second - it surpassed all our expectations, and the only negative was that two nights in this location was nowhere near enough!!!

“Perfect cottage away from town”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Exactly what I needed for my Christmas break. A wonderful cottage with everything you could possibly need to self cater. Great walking available locally. Less than an hour to the Cairngorms for skiing.

Mairi is a wonderful host. Very friendly and we were supplied with some fresh eggs from the farm the day we arrived.

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I stayed at the Wildhaven Cottage whilst working for the Scottish National Heritage in Inverness. The accommodation was superb, it had everything you could possibly want, a comfortable bedroom, a well equipped kitchen, freeview TV, DVD player and of course fabulous views. The owner Mairi is very friendly and extremely helpful and penny the dog is just a big softy. It is remote and very quiet, don't expect to be able to walk to the nearest pub. The only slight issue that I had was that the property is about a mile up a private track, therefore not easy to find and there is no sign from the road and you will find it very hard to get a mobile phone signal from the village. As a tip i would suggest you either print out all the directions from the website or phone ahead to get directions. I would certainly recommend this place, i don't think you will be disappointed
