The cottage was ideally located in a peaceful but not isolated location; as a lone female traveller it was reassuring to have Mairi and family next door as it is off the beaten track but you'd hardly know they were there. Mairi was helpful and welcoming without being intrusive. The cottage really was a home from home, having everything you would need for the stay, it was warm and comfortable and the views were lovely. There is plenty to do in the area and you are situated in a great place to get to all the attractions, I can thoroughly recommend a stay there.
We loved the place and the surroundings!!
Is in the middle of the nature, yet the moment you take the car is very well comunicated to visit a lot of points of interest in short distance.
We highly recomend it, the place itself has all the comfort you need, the host is very nice and helpful.
We will definetely come back and spend more days.
Mairi is a lovely, helpful landlady with plenty of useful information about the area. The cottage is very well equipped with maps and guides and situated well away from main roads, however Inverness is only a 20 minutes drive. The interior is cosy and stylish. Thanks for the wonderful weekend!
This place is great! such a lovely peaceful location. Mairi is a great host, very friendly and knowledgeable.
We had a brilliant stay here would definitely recommend this place to anyone
This cottage is in the most perfect peaceful location but only a few miles from Inverness. The warmth of our welcome and the cosy comfortable accommodation was better than we could have hoped for. The facilities were superb, everything you could possibly need was provided. We wish we could have stayed longer and plan to return later in the year.
From the south [A9] take the Fort Augustus turning [B851] about 8 miles before Invernessyou will go past a farm on the right called The Dell, 1/4 of mile after look out for the first 40 mile an hour sign with 3 slashes and turn left there. Go over cattle grid. Sign Wester Lairgs and Wildhaven.
Continue up track for a mile, passing two locked gates, one on the left and then one on the right. You will see some farm buildings , wooden rail fence and a green shed ahead with the sign Wildhaven.
Go to the house and Wildhaven Cottage is at the far end of the property.
