About the Owner

My husband and myself have both recently retired and live next door to Burnside Croft with our two retired racing greyhounds, so we would be on hand to receive our guests and be able to give any advice or help to make their holiday as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

Very comfortable and well equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Burnside Croft. June and Bob are great hosts who take great pride in offering a comfortable, cozy and well equipped holiday home that helped make our holiday really enjoyable. The cottage was very clean and from the minute we arrived it felt like a home rather than just a holiday let. The cottage is in a beautiful location - it is surrounded by woodland and just a short walk away (a few minutes at a gentle pace) are stunning views of the Beauly Firth.

June very kindly provided basic essentials upon our arrival - tea, coffee, milk, a bottle of wine and some shortbread and chocolates - which was very welcome after a long journey. The WiFI connection was quick and reliable.

We would highly recommend this property for anybody that wants a quiet retreat but easy access to many of the great attractions on offer in the area.

There is a great selection of leaflets and information on local attractions in the cottage.

The booking process was very easy and June was quick to respond to any messages that we sent in relation to our booking.

We look forward to returning again soon and thank June and Bob for their hospitality.

"home from home"

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for three nights with our daughter & two greyhounds, got a great welcome from June & Bob. The cottage was very clean and has everything you could need for your stay and the bottle of wine etc was much appreciated.

Great location with plenty of good places to walk our dogs and lovely scenery. We were also delighted to meet the owner's greyhounds.

We will definitely recommend this cottage to our family & friends and hope to return soon.

Immaculate home in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Very accurate listing description of a good sized bungalow in a beautiful location. The bungalow had been recently renovated and was very clean and tidy. Very friendly attentive owners who live in a bungalow 25 yards away on the same site. The owners have 2 lovely greyhounds and were happy for us to bring our two small dogs for the weeks stay. Lots of good walks and magnificent views in the surrounding area. Also lots of good places to eat. I would certainly recommend this property.

A perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Easter weekend, and cannot recommend it enough!

We were made most welcome from the start, the property is immaculate, and in the most beautiful setting.

There is a private enclosed garden which was perfect for our dogs to run around in.

The croft has every amenity you could need, and although we'd brought our own dishwasher tablets and soap powder etc. we didn't need them, as everything was supplied.

We were even given a bottle of wine to welcome us!

If we are ever in this area again we would certainly stay here!
