“Top class accommodation in a great location”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Julie and John are exceptional hosts. Their friendly welcome, home made bread and a bottle of wine make it easy to relax and feel instantly at home in Sundowner's attractive light and airy accommodation. Finished to a very high standard with some nice hand crafted touches and very comfortable it is a perfect place to unwind as well as a base for adventurous exploration. Plenty of information is available for visitors as well as books CDs and dvds and live bird nest cams on the tv adds to the interest and robust WiFi is there for those all important weather forecasts. This year two adult single speed bikes are available for use and are a great way to explore locally and pop into town. The area has something for everyone.

“Comfortable, clean cottage in great location.”

This cottage was truly a great find. It had it all and more, the owners have thought of everything, even the little things. A warm 'boot room' that had your walking gear dry for the next walk, very comfortable beds, good quality, comfortable furnishings, plenty of crockery & utensils, not the usual 4 of everything! It was all spotlessly clean ! The welcome pack with home made bread & marmalade, great views of the little lambs out of the patio window, birds & snow topped mountains, a peaceful location, bikes & table tennis, plenty to do & something for everyone. Easy to find from Inverness airport. This was our first time visiting Scotland, made so much better with everything you expect from a cottage, with great hosts. And lastly the whiskey distillery tours!!! Worth a visit, we liked the Dalwhinnie & Cardhu.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A first class, well equipped cottage with fantastic views and in walking distance to Kingussie where there are a selection of restaurants. Location is perfect whether you want an adventure packed break or simply want to relax in the amazing scenery. The rooms are furnished and decorated to a very high standard and spotless. Julie and John could not be any more helpful and friendly and we would recommend this without reservation.

“Excellent accommodation and very helpful hosts”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Excellent accommodation furnished to a very high standard and yet homely. Not a "do not" list in sight! Although the cottage is only 2 bedrooms it still felt spacious. The hosts were very helpful and so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble, The heating and hot water was more than sufficient which can be hard to come by in some establishments. The cleanliness of the cottage was 100%, perhaps due to the fact Julie & John take care of this themselves. We woul certainly return to this property.

“Beautiful, peaceful and comfortable place to stay in the highlands”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The accommodation is very well appointed and has an excellent outlook over the highlands, exceptionally peaceful and relaxing place to be, and then you the opportunity to venture out into some fantastic scenic country side without even using the car. Overall a really great place from which to enjoy the central highlands.
