Customer Reviews of Seaview Cottage, nr Wick - Sleeps 4
1st comment: Just simply breath taking, loved watching the weather come in from the sea and exploring the local coast...so beautiful that the plans to explore further a field were forgotten....wanted to book another two weeks this October but not available. April 2012.
2nd comment: We have not been further north than Innverness and decided to give the far north a try. We really like remote rural locations and this cottage gives you the feeling that your miles from civilisation, however local shops and amenities are all within a short drive. The cottage itself is very clean and well equipped despite being remote. There are plenty of good walks nearby which our two Greyhounds loved and the beach at Reiss is well worth a visit with acres of lovely white sand and crystal clear sea. We went in March so the weather was a bit unpredictable with bright sunshine at the start of the week followed by sleet and strong winds later on, but this didn’t detract from the holiday and if anything made it more enjoyable. The owner was really friendly and helpful even though she doesn’t live nearby, the phone call to check that we’d arrived safely made us feel very welcome. All said we would highly recommend this cottage and having been to quite a few over the years can comfortably say that this is o e of the better ones, you will not be disappointed. March 2012.
3rd comment: If you’re looking for peace and quiet then you just have to book this cottage....simply wonderful. The whole area is full of interesting places to visit. Young and old will find it quite enchanting. Sept 2011.
