Guestbook comments from the owner

Me and my family spent 5 days in this cottage located in a very peaceful and unique place. The accommodation is fully equipped with all modern amenities and some additional extras as well for a truly luxurious holiday. Location is ideal for walks in a stupendous environment. Hope we can return some time. Highly recommended.

Beautifully located luxurious house. Not suitable for families with children.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this house for 4 days in late spring.

Pros:

The house is beautifully located, with views of the surrounding mountains.

Suitable for someone who seeks solitude, as there are no nearby houses.

Fancy interior and furniture. Great hot tub. Electric reclining chair.

Cons:

Not suitable for families with small children. Glass tables with sharp edges. Closets with paper doors.

Not entirely self-sufficient. On arrival there was no shower soap, dishwasher soap. No place around to buy them. Frying pans but no pots.

Lovely quiet spot

  • 4 of 5

The property is lovely and spacious with a gorgeous view over the glen. It is well equipped with comfy beds, washer, drier and a handy TV room for the kids. It is quite secluded white means you drive a lot but you tend to in Scotland. The only negative really is the noisy floor (if one person got up early, there was no ignoring it) which is right the way through the house. Other than that, it was perfect for us as we wanted to see the east coast this time so had access to both coasts from here as well as the Cairngorms.

You can't really fail to love this part of the world!

Excellent Property in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

It was a fantastic property for a getaway. Absolutely surreal and far from the maddening crowd. The description of the photos is precise and property has all features as stated.

Travellers looking to stay here must do so without a second thought. However, make sure you have purchased all consumables in food and toiletries as the owners don't really provide much, other than the leftovers from the previous travellers. We went completely prepared for the stay but did feel that if few basic consumables were provided, that would have been even better.

The location is an an hour fifteen minutes away from Inverness, so those looking to stay closer to civilisation may not find the location convenient.

All in all a fantastic experience and will definitely visit again!!

A pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for three nights in February 2014. The house is lovely and very cosy. Especially liked the under floor heating and wood burner. No wii or sky+ as advertised so check with owners if this is important to you (it wasn't important to us). Purely based upon our other self-catering experiences, we were slighty disapopinted with lack of provisions. The only provisions in the house appeared to be items left by previous guests. However, our requests (teatowels and dishwasher tablets) were quickly dealt with by the owner. Overall, a lovely property. Pictures are vey accurate.

The calmest holiday full of air

  • 5 of 5

I have been always dreaming about a house surrounded by nature, fresh air and gorgeous views. This is the perfect place if you want to relax and forget about everything. It is situated nearby the main viewpoints.

The owners keep everything very private and you feel like you came to your own cottage for some holidays. You don't need to worry about anything, the house is a completed home. Never felt more rested.

Memorable holiday in Scotland

  • 5 of 5

I was very tired from a lot of people around me in the office, on the subway, on the streets. I was very tired from the high-rise buildings and huge city that I saw through the window of my office.

I was looking for a stand-alone cottage with nice view. I have chosen Hill House and made no mistake. It was a wonderful holidays in October surrounded by wildlife. I was looking through our window at young deer and left food for pine marten near our door.

Home is away from the city nevertheless it has contemporary décor and modern equipment. The house is large and very comfortable. Wonderful view through the windows. It was so comfortable to have underfloor heating throughout the house.

It has convenient location near Loch Ness, river Moriston, Fort Augustus. It is only 5-8 minutes to nearest café and convenient delivery of food from ASDA.

Many thanks to Elina and Vlad. We will be back.

Lora and Alex.
