Customer Reviews of Lighthouse Keepers Cottage, Portmahomack - Sleeps 4+2
"The location was absolutely stunning and fabulous. The cottage was homely and clean. Mackays service excellent." Mrs F. Knott
"Incredible location" The location of this property is intoxicatingly exotic. It is easy to feel as though you are alone on a little island in the North Sea with only seabirds and cattle for company. However, the actual accommodations are a little small and dark and in need of updating. There is no dining room and some of the rooms smell rather funky. But the location... It's a once in a lifetime experience."
Mr N. Dunlop
"Something a bit different" Me and my partner stayed at the Lighthouse and we loved it. We were looking for something a bit difference and out in the open as we had taken our dog with us and we definately found that here. Set in its own grounds and a large walled garden your not lost for outside space. Inside is a bit old but it just adds to the character but there's enough home comforts to keep you happy. Although we went in winter and the snow was chucking down it was amazing and really added to the holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and location and scenery were beautiful."
