I can't say enough fantastic things about the property we stayed in. It was wonderful for our family and we were delighted with it. The property was spotless, warm, spacious and exactly how it was described and more. We are looking to book again shortly

On behalf of the owners, we know they'd be happy to welcome you back anytime!

Excellent customer service offered with Scotts Castle Holidays. If we had any questions they were answered promptly and the property itself was outstanding

We do our best to provide personalised service to all our customers; human to human. No chat-bots in this office!

Great property, especially for a group.

Really pleased to hear you and your group had a lovely holiday.  

This was a wonderful property to stay at, especially for a group.
the biggest concern was the communication between Scotts Castle Holidays. They did not do a good job communicating with us for check in details, as my group was coming from out of the country this made things very difficult to arrange.

Goodness we're very sorry to hear about your experience.  The check-in details are always displayed on the website as well as automatically provided on all guest confirmation paperwork including the travel directions.  I can't see a query on your booking asking to clarify check-in details so can only apologise if this was overlooked.

Grande cuisine bien équipée et belle salle repas. Deux beaux salons.
Bien situé (au centre de l'écosse) pour visiter les alentours.

Thank you for the fantastic feedback for this beautiful house. Great that you found the property spacious and well equipped, the idyllic location certainly makes it a popular house for groups wishing to make the most of the many outdoor pursuits available in the area!

Our family had a great time. The house was excellent and met all our needs. Everything you might need has been thought of. A nice touch that milk, bread, jam and shortbread had been left for our arrival. Also supplies of tea, coffee and sugar. We topped this back up! Lots of room in the house and we did not feel as if we were living on top of each other. Lovely spacious kitchen with everything you could possibly need when cooking for lots of people. I'd never used an aga but it was very easy to use and kept the kitchen lovely and warm. The showers were great too and comfy beds. A big enclosed garden where the children could run around safely. I have no complaints at all about this property and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Sounds like you have many memories to take home with you, great to hear you all enjoyed this charming country house and it's highland setting.

The welcome basket sounds delicious and I'm sure went down a treat on arrival after your traveling. Perfect to hear you mastered the AGA and found the kitchen well equipped - we hope that you may wish to return in the future, don't forget to claim your loyalty discount next time!

Always friendly and helpful with any queries I had.

Thank you for rating us excellent! We're delighted you found us helpful and friendly and it was a pleasure helping with your holiday plans.

Although the décor will probably need updating soon (as is the case with many highland properties) we found the house lovely and very comfortable. The showers were amazing and views stunning. It definitely exceeded our expectation!! We had a very warm welcome in the form of basic food provisions (milk, butter, bread, shortbread) and it really made a difference with how quickly we settled in. I would happily recommend this house to anyone and if the opportunity arises, go and stay again. Thanks very much!

Sounds like you had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at this delightful holiday house. Glad you enjoyed the welcome basket and the lovely countryside views.

Many thanks for all your feedback, it's always invaluable in order to consider improvement where possible. We look forward to welcoming you back should you wish to stay again.

A few hiccups getting booked; took a few days and caused a wee bit of stress as we were booking for work. But the service was friendly, polite and very helpful. I would try them again.

Many thanks for your feedback, sorry we couldn't give an immediate response. Unfortunately with last minute bookings they can take a lot of arranging however glad we could get there in the end and you would book with us again.

Just returned for a wonderful long weekend. None of us wanted to leave. The house was excellent. Plenty of room for all the family (5 adults, 5 children and one dog). Didn't need to take toys for the wee ones as plenty of books (new), lego etc. I did love the two sitting rooms and the log fire so one room was designated as a quiet room and I managed to have half an hour reading on my own before I was found!! The kitchen was perfect with an aga, great pots and utensils and a super table. The garden was perfect for all and the dog especially loved it. This was a very comfortable and relaxing house and we would love to go again, just sorry it is already booked for New Year.

We agree, the owners have provided lots of entertainment and extra touches to make the stay special. Lovely to hear you found the cosy drawing room a quiet retreat during the stay  :)  The house is very comfortable and well equipped, the garden is also perfect for your four legged friends to join you on holiday!

Very helpful company and would certainly use them again

Many thanks for the fantastic feedback, great you found our service helpful and we would be delighted to help with your next family holiday!

We were a family group of six, three adults & three children that arrived a little later than expected, we found the place and key with ease, straight away we felt at home basking in the heat from the gas Aga (always on you know) and were delighted to find basic essentials provided such as tea, coffee, milk, sugar butter, bread, shortbread biscuits, jam, bin liners and dishwasher tablets and what a kitchen enough prep area and utensils to run a small restaurant with all the crockery, glass ware and cutely you could wish for, oh yes that dishwasher was a great aid.

Two adults had a master bedroom each, the eldest had a twin room, the middle child shared with her 3 year old daughter & I slept downstairs as I wanted to snore without the worry of keeping folk awake plus I had my own toilet & bathroom adjacent to the kitchen, those upstairs had a choice of two bathrooms so everyone catered for.

Two beautiful lounges, one with a modern smart TV, Blu-Ray player etc. plus a collection of videos suitable for early age groups to adult choices and plus a few toys for the younger person, the other room had no TV which was nice being such a tranquil room and books abounded everywhere for the avid reader. All towels and linen provided plus a good utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Basically the house exceeded my expectations on many levels, it was not perfect (thankfully) as I would not have felt comfortable with young ones in tow, it was close to perfection for the owners had thought of everything and their attention to detail should be commended.

We went in August with the promise of rain every day for seven days, in reality it stayed dry the whole time & the south experienced torrential rain, what a shame. Lots of attractions to be enjoyed via the car and worth noting that if you wanted very good cuisine you need to book the Letterbox restaurant in Newtonmore, a lovely 5 mile drive from the home, do book though, same applies to the local riding school, book first well in advance.

I would like to come back again, maybe with just adults to soak up the local area more, throw a few dinner parties maybe. It would be my first choice for a Christmas holiday, especially with snow. We are thinking about going back before the year is out but 100% sure we will return.

If you are looking for spacious accommodation in a tranquil setting with all mods and cons look no further.

Lovely old house with plenty of space and well equipped kitchen.Just a point about the lack of hanging space in bunk room for four- there wasn't any. A couple of drawers under the bed.The double room had a "rail" but no wardrobe. Good holiday with lovely views.

Thanks for your feedback and hope your group had an enjoyable stay in this lovely country house. We do advise the bunk bed room is ideally suited to younger children as there is slightly limited storage space in this room, it’s great to hear the kitchen accommodated your group well over the stay!

We do offer various payments services which do not incur an additional charge, as the credit card option was used, this means a surcharge was applied by the 3rd party card provider.

Hope we can help again with your next holiday!

Used them before and had no problem with their service just a few issues with the house and it's owner.However when I paid this years balance it would have been nice to be reminded about the credit card charge which subsequently cost me £7.00.Not too pleased.

This is an ideal house for a holiday when travelling in a larger group. The house is set in lovely surroundings and offers comfortable lounges, spacious kitchen is very well equipt for cooking as well as BBQ. The garden outside is large and beautiful and the fence would stop even a small dog from running off. With lots of walks around, this is an ideal house to get some quality time with family or friends when you want to get away from it all.

Thanks for the great feedback, glad you found our service helpful and sounds like your family have a lovely stay in this beautiful country house! Hope we can help again with your next trip!
