Wonderful location, lovely cottage and warm welcoming hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Beaully, so much to see and do locally and further afield. Scotland is beautiful! June and Bob are perfect hosts and do what they can to make your stay a good one. They doggysat our Spanish rescue dog, so we could go snowboarding, need I say more? We will definitely return when we go to Scotland again and can think of no better place to stay than this. Thanks for everything The Wythe family

A Real Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Just beautiful

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were greeted by June and Bob who showed us into Burnside. One look and we were blown away, we never expected such a lovely place. The fire was burning brightly in the burner which, made the whole place warm and welcoming on a cold December night, especially after travelling for ten hours! There was a lovely welcome pack waiting for us, including wine which was an amazing touch and so unexpected. Bob and June were great, they invited us over to New Years day drinks and nibbles, they were so hospitable and friendly. Burnside was wonderful, everything and more we could have wished for. Roomy warm and fully equiped for a wonderful stay. The location was great as we loved walking and it was in easy reach for all the site seeing we wanted to do. If it was for sale we would buy it, it was that wonderful!
