Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The location was very good. Holiday enjoyed by us and our grandchildren. Could recommend it. Oct 2012.
  2. Due to work commitments I was looking for a "spur of the moment" place to stay in the Highlands. Having walked on the west coast I decided to try Inverness on the East. The Old Gun house appealed in both looks and location and the pictures were very accurate. Some may not like the 12 mile drive up a single track road but myself and my friend loved it’s remoteness... just like Brigadoon! The house itself was amazing, fresh fruit all the cooking utensils you could ask for and stunningly warm, just exceptional... and the walking!! Right from the front door into Strathconan Glen, simply sublime. Would heartily recommend to anyone wanting to "get away from it all"... and only 30 mins from Inverness airport. Aug 2012.
  3. An absolutely wonderful holiday location, greeted with basket of fruit and two bottles of wine. A long journey off the main road but well worth it, ventured past the cottage to the end of the road scenery and wildlife amazing. If you enjoy wild life and bird watching you will have plenty to see deer, golden eagle, buzzard, red kite and seal in the cromarty firth. For a good day out the kyle of lochalsh and skye along the A832, A890 sights and scenes incredible. This cottage was a gold award welll worth the journey and the money. UNSPOILT SCOTLAND. April 2012.
  4. A very relaxing week. Wildlife pentiful - saw a young Golden Eagle, a Red Kite and a large herd of Red Deer near the cottage. March 2012.
  5. 12 serene miles (30 minute drive) down a single track road, within a quiet working complex of 3 houses and the old estate stables, overlooking hills and glens, if you are looking for a quiet get-away-from-it-all holiday, this is the ideal place.The house is small, even for 4 people (there are 3 seats in the living room) but extremely comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen has pleanty of utensils, a comfortable dining area and there is a large stock of wood for the fire PLUS central heating. The bathroom is on the ground floor and the staircase somewhat narrow and winding so for Seniors and children the location is not ideal and care is required. But for us - 2 people and a dog - it was an ideal holiday spot. On the subject of dogs, all of the estate dogs are very well trained and there are deer and sheep in abundance, so this is not a place for a runaround Town Hound unless you are prepared to keep it tethered. Sept 2011.
  6. Very peaceful & quiet location excellent escape from modern life. Fantastic views. Aug 2011.
  7. Good location with wide open spaces and great views. Herds of red deer roaming freely as we arrived back in the evening! Comfortable house with all that is required for a good holiday. May be worth noting it is 12 miles down a single track no through road though! July 2011.
  8. Peaceful and tranquil landscape, nice open fire and a welcome fruit basket with all the facilities in the kitchen that you could think of. Would definitely return. Didn’t want to come home. Possibly the best holiday yet. Beautiful cottage. Sept 2010.
  9. Beautiful location and the property contained all that was needed for a 2 week family holiday. You advised taking towels but following a telephone call from the estate office clarified thath this was not the case. Fresh linen/towels were also provided at the end of the 1st week. July 2010.
  10. It was a very clean and comfortable cottage and they provide you with a bowl of fruit on your arrival. It is a lovely area with lots of red deer around the estate, also saw fox and red kites...perfect ’get away from it all’ holiday. Nov 2009.
  11. The property was well designed and modern interior. It was very clean and felt home from the moment you walked in. Very pleasant that enough wood was provided for the open fire and all electricity included because sometimes that can be rather an unpleasant surprise at the end of a holiday. Nov 2009
  12. The Gunhouse is clean and comfortable the location is just amazing the pictures on line do not do it justice! The wild life is really good, we saw deer every day in the meadow and rabbits in the garden every morning and evening! The views from the top of the mountain just outside are out of this world. The road that leads to the house is very scenic we named it little Canada if you go there you will know what i mean, this place is truly beautiful. June 2009.
  13. We had a great time. The area is very private, the wildlife fantastic. I hope the new tenants remember to feed the birds. May 2009.
  14. Fantasic place, highly recommended. April 2009.
  15. This property had everything we could ever need, the lay out was excellent, fruit on arrival, as much fire wood as we wanted, heating included, all linen and towels included! This is a magnificent holiday cottage. We will certainly be returning! March 2009.
  16. Location is just awesome! Sept 2008.
  17. Beautiful house, amazing scenery and wildlife. July 2008.
  18. Wonderful cottage - fantastic location for wildlife and walking. comfortable, warm and welcoming - will be returning hopefully next year. Lovely to have the logs included and a fruit bowl, these things make all the difference! Oct 2008.
  19. A perfectly presented accommodation providing the ideal environment to relax and appreciate the stunning local scenery. March 2008.
  20. Very good position for watching the deer and plenty of walks straight from the door for us and the dogs. July 2008.
