The Linhay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at the Linhay, the cottage was lovely, really clean, spacious and very well equipped, it is suitable for people with reduced mobility.

The owners, Tony and Jill were really nice and helpful. The cottage was a good base for touring the Highlands Lochs and Glens and there was plenty to see and do. As other reviewers have said, "the Strathspey Railway Journey is a must". The Culoden experience was also very good. We would definately book this cottage again.

After having a complicated and difficult year, myself, my daughter and friend decided to take some time out in Scotland. My daughter had never been to Loch Ness but had heard the tales and stories of the famous monster.

Being mesmerized by the tale, the nearly eight year old wee girl, was beyond excited to be going to Loch Ness.

She thrives in the outdoors, loves nature, exploring, castles, boats and roaming around in her willies, Loch Ness was perfect for her. it was one huge adventure to try to see Nessy.

We were all taken in by the beauty of the highlands which I had forgotten. We drove to as many places possible and saw as much as we could in our time. We drove to the Isle of Skye for a day which was another venture ticked off the list.

It rained and was cold, then was gorgeous and sunny, but it didn't effect our exploring one bit.

We met lovely people, saw amazing wildlife and took in as much as we could of a stunning part of the world.

Our cottage was perfect. extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, safe and was just right for our six night stay. Its surrounded by a lovely garden and was utterly peaceful. It was just faultless.

I would recommend to anyone and would return for another stay in a flash.

Tony and Jill are lovely.They left us to our own devices unless we required their help, we felt undisturbed and relaxed, but knew they were approachable if needed.

Booking the cottage was effortless and untroubled with Tony and Jill and their prices were very reasonable too.

We were sad to have to leave and spent hours looking at all our photo's over and over.

We didn't see Nessy in the flesh, but my daughters sure, she woke her up from her underwater lair. As on our return home, Nessy sightings were mentioned twice in the news. One in the area we stopped to shout for her and one the boat we were on, going over the loch.

A perfect ending, to a perfect stay, for the worlds biggest Nessy fan.....

After a hard year in one way or another we were desperate for a break.To just relax and unwind. From the moment we were greeted on that wet dark night to the day we left in glorious sunshine we were transported into heaven. The owners were warm and caring and there if you needed them.The cottage is beautifully decorated and contained everything you could need Very clean and comfortable.Its situated in peaceful ,beautiful surrounding with fantastic walks near by. There are Highland coos close by who love you to talk to them and feed them. Also its nicely placed for exploring the Highlands and visiting Nessie.

All day long there are a constant stream of blue tits, finches and other small birds feeding at the patio window spell binding to watch.As we pulled away on the last day we even saw an Eagle sat on the fence breathtaking he was.

We can definitely recommend this cottage the description is very accurate its suitable for all ages and abilities, as a base for exploring or somewhere to just relax and totally unwind.There are plenty of leaflets and WiFi availability if like our teenage kids you want to write an itinerary for the week or like my husband and i you want to pull up stool some days and RELAX.The kitchen is perfect for cooking to fill the kids belly's and wash their clothes.If you want to snuggle up when its cold outside its toasty indoors.

The kids recommend Inverness leisure centre, the wildlife park, landmark forest adventure park Ben nevis and nessie land .

Fort Augustus is a lovely place and you must have a train ride from Inverness to Kyle of lochalsh the scenery whatever the weather is just incredible.There is a gift shop/tannery in Glenmoriston which is more than worth a visit the young lady who works in there is so talented her work is stunning. WE will definitely stay again.
