Customer Reviews of Shore Cottage, Moray Firth - Sleeps 4

1st comment: Shore cottage is a beautiful cosy little gem, gorgeous quiet pretty location well equipped very clean couldn’t ask for anything more, Suzanne the owner called us in our first few days to make sure everything was ok on our arrival which was lovely. We had a fab time and can’t wait to book our next stay. April 2012.

2nd comment: A gorgeous cottage in beautiful surroundings. March 2012.

3rd comment: The cottage was very well equipped and the coal fire was welcoming in the evening. We recommend the walk around the coast line to Porthamomach, lovely views across the water and a well earned drink at the end. Oct 2011.

4th comment: Very well equipped and clean cottage. Good base for dolphin watching. Plenty other wildlife to be seen. Sept 2011.

5th comment: The cottage is very well equipped, scrupulously clean and very comfortable (although some people may have expected a dishwasher). The location is superb with the shore lying only feet away from bottom of the garden. The cottage offers excellent value for money and I would happily return there. We also received a phone call from the owner to check everything was fine, which was a very nice touch. I would recommend Shore cottage very highly. Sept 2011.

6th comment: Excellent location right by the Moray Firth - weather too rough for dolphins but we did see an otter on the shore right in front of the cottage. Quiet location with good walks and lots of wildlife straight from the door, but also well placed for touring the Northern Highlands. Well equipped and very comfortable. May 2011.

7th comment: Lovely furniture, nicely decorated. Nov 2010.

8th comment: Everything you could want, including magnificent setting. Oct 2010.

9th comment: A beautifully presented, deceptively spacious property. In a delightful location with very friendly and helpful locals, loved the unprecedented views and waking to the sound of the sea. Very clean and fully equipped to meet our needs. Aug 2010.

10th comment: Very clean and comfortable, attention to detail very good and the view out of this world, just what you need if you want to get far from the madding crowd. Will certainly return, loved it. June 2010.
