About louise meeres

hi there,i'm louise and me and my husband bob have lived in rogart for 21yrs now after moving up from wiltshire. we have 3 children,2 of which have flown the nest but no.3- charlie is still at home. we love where we live and hope you will too. we're both outdoor people ,are keen gardeners and grow lots of our own produce and rear our own meat. having a croft is more of a way of life than a job. we like to think we're pretty helpful kind of folk so during your stay we are more than happy to give you any local tourist info where we can ,lend you maps etc and hopefully make your stay as relaxing and as fun as possible.we've had family in the cottage on and off for the last couple of years but we are back!!! =)

louise meeres purchased this cottage in 1991

Why louise meeres chose Northern Scottish Highlands

my other half had always had an affinity with scotland after holidaying up here every year when he was a child,and being from farming background it seemed a natural progression to buy a croft up in the highlands. we both fell in love with the area,the diverse landscapes, the huge sense of freedom and space which comes from being able to see for miles and such a friendly village atmosphere

What makes this cottage unique

we both love the outdoors and everything it has to offer,so when not working on the croft its great to be able to take the bikes out and hardly see a car,go hillwalking or go for a stomp on the nearby beaches. i've recently taken up climbing and theres lots of rocks to climb!,my husband thinks i'm mad and prefers to go for a round of golf instead..we're both pretty sporty but when we just feel like chilling out the peace and quiet on the croft is wonderful.who would want to live anywhere else when on my morning school run i can watch the red deer grazing on the roadside!

Guestbook comments from the owner

the old byre cottage is a wonderful place to get away from it all,rest and replenish your energies.Whether you are looking to relax in the beautiful garden breathing the fresh air and admiring the awesome views,or looking forward to those cosy evenings in front of the fire after an invigorating walk.We have been coming here as a family for many years in all seasons and have always found the old byre to be a warm ,cosy and comfortable kid friendly base from which t explore.our kids havecollected icicles in the winter,fed lambs in spring and seen seals on the beaches in the summer,they revel in the space and freedom and when they are happy we are happy too! Fiona Store-Bristol

Fell in love with this cottage and surroundings on our first visit several yrs ago and have been back every year since and think its the perfect base for sightseeing or just lazing relaxing in front of the peat fire! Deanna-Bratton

Cozy Cottage in the beautiful highlands!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the farm. Louise was very welcoming and we were greeted with homemade brownies and tea! The area is beautiful and quiet and not very far from Golspie. We found lots of things to keep us busy. We took a day trip up and along the northern coast that was gorgeous.

The cottage was clean and cozy and had everything we needed for a delightful stay! Thanks again to Louise for everything and a special shout out to Poppy (the dog) who went for walks with us and made sure we got home safe!

Gorgeous Colourful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A week of rest and relaxation with my 5 month old daughter, dog and husband! We couldn't wish for anything more. Where there were questions they were answered and fixed if necessaey within minutes. Nothing was too much trouble.

Location is idyllic - not too far from shops and remote enough to enjoy the local countryside.

Owners could not have done anything more - cake and wine on arrival - what a welcome! Thank you

Cosier than at home

  • 5 of 5

We spent only a week with our baby at the cottage, but would have wanted to be there for longer. Not only was the weather perfect most of the time, we could also enjoy cold evenings in front of the fireplace. The cottage is in perfect condition, and Louise and Bob are great hosts. The scenery is just stunning, and the surrounding villages and the nearby sea make this place even more enjoyable.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

The hospitality from the family was exceptional and made us feel very welcome.

The property met our needs perfectly and was well presented and clean. Plenty of logs were supplied for the stove and the living room was relaxing and cosy in the evening.

They had thought of everything, including spare toothbrushes and sun lotion in the bathroom and there was a lovely plate of brownies with milk and cold wine waiting for us when we arrived.

Our son was made to feel especially welcome and would have happily stayed there forever!

A car is essential for this part of Scotland for visiting attractions and restaurants. But we wanted tranquility and complete relaxation in the evenings.
