Guest Comments

"We have just returned from a very relaxing week at Gladstone Cottage. Jan and Alan made us very welcome and everything we (including our 2 spaniels) possibly needed for a comfortable stay was provided in the cottage. The garden was fantastic for the dogs as was the lovely (and usually empty) beaches nearby. Overall Gladstone Cottage was a brilliant base for exploring the whole area."

"Gladstone cottage was very comfy and clean we had a nice stay . Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short but Alan the host very kindly offered us the use of his car. Alan was very helpful and there was everything you needed for a great stay hopefully we get a chance to return again. Thank you Alan & Jan. Colin Veronica and Buddie."

"Jan and Alan are the nicest people and the cottage was excellent. We will definitely be booking again in the future as we have family in the area and have been to other cottages but this one was by far the best."

Barry, June 2021

"This is a lovely cottage with very welcoming and helpful hosts. It is very well equipped and warm, which was important as the temperatures for May were quite low. We would highly recommend this cottage ."

Helen, June 2021

"Can’t thanks Jan and Alan enough for allowing us to stay in their lovely cottage. It was perfect to come back to after a day of exploring. Warm, clean and comfortable. Great location, Jan and Alan recommended restaurants which were lovely. The cottage has everything you need and more. We will be back."

"Gladstone Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and situated within a short drive of Thurso for shopping, etc. Pam and her husband were very friendly and helpful, even supplying a dog's bed, dog towels and treats! Dogs are allowed the run of the garden. This is a great centre from which to explore the far North of the mainland and has easy access to the Orkney ferries. We were there in November but the cottage was a very cozy place to come home to after a day out. A fantastic beach and coastal scenery are within reasonable walking distance or a very short car ride. Recommended."

Steve, November 2020

"Absolutely the most comfortable, well equipped and cosy cottage ever! The owners- who live next door - are friendly, charming and invisible unless you need them. This cottage has everything you could ever need, was spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. Fully enclosed garden that our two dogs enjoyed - escape artists may find a way out - the wall is about 3ft 6 high. Really enjoyed our stay, highly recommend!"

Tracey, October 2020

"Overall excellent, had a wonderful time, only complaint was that so much locally was still closed down due to covid, but really enjoyed the peace and quiet there"

James, September 2020

"Charming (half) cottage with a history. Owners as friendly as they could be given pandemic restrictions. Clean. Large lawned garden. Parking. Quiet."

Bernice, September 2020

"Lovely homely, cosy and spacious cottage with everything you could wish for. Friendly helpful owners."

Jean, September 2020

"A fabulous cottage in a great location with everything you need for a holiday. Easy access to various beaches along the north coast of Scotland. Nothing was too much for the owners, who were welcoming a kind."

Hannah, August 2020

"The cottage is so well equipped. Don't expect boutique hotel- this is a traditional cottage. We liked the quirky layout ( bedroom/ dressing room with shower/ toilet rooms). Everything is provided to a tee! The garden is a bonus, we enjoyed sitting out with wee drink. Every room was spotless- especially with Covid 19 in mind, the surfaces, handles, taps, sinks, remote controls etc etc all cleaned and labelled for our info. Cleaning materials and antibacs provided. Washing up liquid, washing powder provided too. Nice touch that tea, coffee, sugar, milk, and pastries are supplied to greet you too!! The area is so beautiful and we enjoyed a trip to Orkney. Delighted with our stay, highly recommended."
