Myself, Rachel and Arlo had an absolutely fabulous stay! We couldn’t fault anything about the accommodation or the hosts themselves! Leila and David were fantastic hosts and were waiting to greet us as we arrived making us feel welcome straight away. Arlo was also greeted by some new doggie friends and loved playing with the hosts family pets. We all had a fantastic time and couldn’t recommend enough. The area surrounding the property is beautiful and was a perfect location for exploring the highlands! The shepherds hut had everything we needed and was spotless! We were even welcomed with some Easter eggs as well as milk, eggs and bread. The hot tub was wonderful and so relaxing especially with the beautiful surroundings. We also loved the bbq but which was so cosy and warming in the evening. 10/10, would definitely recommend to anyone and would happily stay again. Thanks Leila and David :)

Absolutely delightful hosts, Leila and David were super helpful and friendly. The hut was incredibly peaceful, and warm. It had everything you would ever need and more. The hot tub was perfect after long dog walks. We only wish we could have stayed for longer!!

Lovely little cabin for a wee weekend trip. The shepherds hut was very comfortable and had everything you needed including comfy bed, clean bathroom, hot water shower and fully equipped kitchen. The hosts were great, appeared as soon as we arrived for the check in to show us about the place and give tips on where to go to walk or restaurants for dinner. The bubbly hot tub was a major bonus and made for 2 nights of relaxing. Thanks so much guys, we will be back when we need a luxury countryside getaway.

We are already looking forward to our next stay at the Cuillich Mill! Leila and David were warm and welcoming from the start and shared great infos and recommendations. The hut was so cozy, especially with the sound of the rain on the roof and our dog also felt right at home. The breakfast was homemade and freshly prepared to our liking, we definitely recommend trying!You could feel that Leila & David really made an effort to create an extraordinary experience, they are true hosts with heart and soul. Thanks a lot :)

We had a great time but it should have been longer. ☺ The breakfast was excellent. We we're only passing through on our way to Orkney but had an excellent stay. It would be good to see some of the area in the future it looked beautiful. ☹ Nothing really, some might say a television in the room but we we're more than happy to talk to our hosts, read our books and listen to the birdsong.

Great start to our NC500 trip ☺ Room was very comfortable. Bathroom well appointed. Location was lovely just out of Alness. Breakfast was really excellent- lots of choice and great quality produce served in lovely crockery. Leila and David were great hosts, very chatty and provided lots of helpful advice for our NC500 trip. ☹ Nothing not to like
