Customer Reviews of Castle Hill, Brora - Sleeps 10
1st comment: Absolutely fantastic house in beautiful setting. 3 1/2 teenagers (not the easiest group to amuse) had a good time. Really relaxing and great place for a chillout. Weather not very good but then that’s Scotland for you! June 2012.
2nd comment: We had a fabulous time, we were there mainly to cheer on our family who were cycling from Lands End to John o Groats for charity, and it was a wonderful place to stay. We would most certainly consider coming back. June 2012.
3rd comment: There were 6 of us in the party and it is the first time that we have been to a holiday home that we all wanted to return to. The cleanliness of the property was to be commended. May 2012.
4th comment: Castle Hill is a wonderful holiday base. It is suitable for families, groups and couples. The views across the fields are lovely and calming. The house is well equipped, warm and peaceful. The bedrooms are large and have excellent storage. To be honest it exceeded all expectations. The beach and harbour are a short walk/drive away and Brora caters for all your domestic and eating needs. The house is just off the A9 which gets you everywhere on the East and northern coast. We totally recommend Castle Hill. Very pet friendly too. We shall return. May 2012.
