Thank you for your kind review, we always do our best to make everyone feel welcome, glad you enjoyed your stay and the early snow doesn’t put you off coming back!!
Truly tranquil location with stunning views from high up on the hill
Outstanding vacation! My sister and I spent two marvellous weeks in this lovely, fully-equipped cottage. The owners, June and Bob were so very helpful in every way and their friendliness made us feel right at home. We enjoyed walking into Beauly and exploring what it had to offer; many shops and restaurants as well as great coffee shops. The cottage is in a perfect location for branching out in a different direction each day and exploring the Highlands. We loved every minute of our stay and would happily return!
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was our pleasure to meet you both, our weather has continued to be fabulous, sun shine every day and certainly shows Scot land to advantage, the temperature reached 25 degrees today which is hot for us!! Hope you had a good journey home. Kind regards, June and Bob
The cottage was spotless and well equipped. June and Burt were very welcoming and happy to help. The cottage is in a central position for exploring the area. My 2 boys really enjoyed themselves.
Thank you for your kind review. We always enjoy meeting our guests and their families. Loved your wee comment in out visitors book about your son wanting to stay. Hope you enjoyed your break even if the weather wasn't the best. Kind regards June and Bob
Our time in the cottage was absolutely fantastic, the cottage had everything you could need and the our hosts were lovely. Amazing location with the forest at your front door and only a short drive to the town. Will definitely be booking back as soon as we can.
It was our pleasure to meet you both, (and of course Glen), thank you for your kind review, and we look forward to seeing you again.
A Real Home from Home
We had a wonderful 4 nights get away. They say first impressions are important and that is true as far as I am concerned. We were met by our hosts and you couldn't have wished for a warmer welcome than what we received. Such a lovely genuine couple and so accommodating and one got the feeling straight away that they really cared and wanted us to be comfortable and to enjoy our stay. They were around and available the whole time we were there but never in a way that we felt our privacy was being invaded. June and Bob thank you for caring. Such a lovely cottage. Warm and comfortable and so spacious and absolutely perfect for us as we had our disabled daughter with us and she is confined to her wheelchair. We find it very difficult to get away with her unless we have beforehand actually been to see the place and of course that is difficult. We have to rely on feedback such as this when we are looking for a wheelchair friendly and pet friendly place to stay. So I am still going to give this place 5 stars because I do think that is what it is worth and in fact if you don't have a wheelchair it is probably worth 10 stars!! but I am going to suggest to June and Bob that they mention in their advertising that the place is "assisted wheelchair friendly" as it really was a bit difficult getting the electric wheelchair in and I must admit my heart sunk when I saw that the entrance into the cottage was going to mean we might have to leave the electric wheelchair in the van and use the manual one which we had fortunately also brought with. Our daughter is 45 years old and not being able to use her electric wheelchair would have meant relying on us 100% for everything even such things as going to the loo!! Anyway, good old Bob he did come up with a sort of a solution and we did get the chair in but still it would have been better had we not had the initial hassle.
Still, I am NOT going to take away anything from the fact that Burnside Cottage is a beautiful relaxing place to stay with beautiful surrounds and such an easy place to use as a base if you want to explore Inverness and further. If you have children (or a dog like we had) there is a lovely little garden to run around in. There is a huge trampoline and swings and I remember going on holiday with my 4 children when they were young and I would have given my back teeth to have stayed in a place like this. So - thank you Bob and June and honestly we hope to see you both in the future. Thank you.
Thank you for your very kind review. We will certainly take on board your suggestion that we advertise as "assisted wheelchair friendly". It was a pleasure to meet you all, and hope to see you all again in the future. Kind regards, June
Charming, comfortable, and quiet
Beautiful home and property, quiet neighborhood, conveniently located for exploring the highlands. Bob and June were excellent hosts and it was great getting to chat with them a bit during our time there as well!
