We loved our stay at Crofters Retreat cottage. It easily accommodated our 2 families - 4 adults, 2x12yo and the dog. The kitchen was very well equipped with great dining space for us all. The sitting room and bedrooms had a lovely cosy feel, but with space to easily accommodate us all. The two bathrooms were really well appointed, clean and modern Read morewith lots of hot water. The location and views are fantastic- great for seeing the wild glens and the Black Isle. We would totally recommend. Hide

Lovely cottage in the hills. Very comfortable accommodation and the downstairs bathroom was great for my dad whose mobility is impaired. Lots of wildlife to see from the cottage - we spotted deer and red kites. Convenient location for exploring Loch Ness, Inverness, the Black Isle and the many historic sites scattered around the area.

The cottage was clean, spacious, and welcoming. The surrounding area was very peaceful, and the cottage was a good base for exploring, in all directions. Good wi-fi and mobile reception.

Superbly clean and comfortable cottage in a lovely location. So much to see and do nearby. Really dog-friendly too - our cocker-spaniel loved being by the farm.

Foxhole farm was unbelievably comfortable for our stay. The amenities were just what youd expect with plenty of personality, and our hosts Colin and Fiona were beyond hospitable and friendly. I only wish we had stayed longer. My only hesitation writing this review is that it will be harder for us to book next time.

It felt like a real home from home. Fiona and Colin were very friendly and welcoming. The house was lovely to stay in - light rooms that were comfortable and relaxing. We loved the space in the kitchen with a nice, big table to sit around. Perfect for us all. We had a great time staying there and would definitely stay again.

Lovely comfortable cottage in a great location for exploring Loch Ness and Glen Affric area. The cottage is well equipped and great for a family holiday. The sitting room with log burning fire is perfect for cosy evenings and the sun room/porch is a lovely place to sit and read. As well as having its own garden area, we were free to explore the farRead morem and meet the animals. The owners are very welcoming and helpful but unobtrusive. Hide
