    Had a fantastic week in this cottage, facilities and cleanliness superb and we were delighted with the stunning location. We know the area well but still found new walks in the local area. The best part was the garden and wildlife outside the windows, we sat for hours watching red squirrels and the wild birds and woodpeckers, 1 adult and a jouvenille. We have stayed in many cottages throughout the Highlands but this was one of the best.

    Superb accommodation. Beautiful location - very peaceful. Very well equipped, clean and cosy. Enjoyed the wood burning fire. Lovely flowers, shortbread and bottle of fizz on arrival. Amazing walks and views at the bottom of the garden. Would definitely return.

    Another great November week at A Wee Gem. The cottage is so cosy, comfortable and clean. The surroundings are beautiful, peaceful and picturesque. Theres lots to do round about during the day, then look forward to a cosy evening with the stove lit, a bottle of wine and a cook up. Fab.

    We loved everything about this cottage, from its comfort and cleanliness, to its tranquil location in a very scenic area. We particularly appreciated the efficiency of its central heating and log-burner, making it ideal for out of season holidays. Lots of wildlife on the doorstep, red squirrels, deer, a fox, and birds of many kinds, I'm sure there are pine martens, too, although we didn't spot them! Autumn colours are really spectacular. Lots of places of interest within close range, such as castles, distilleries, and Knockando woollen mill, also Logie Steading for a bit of retail therapy. Will definitely recommend to friends, though not too enthusiastically, in case we find it fully booked when we want to return!!!!

    This is our fourth year and the cottage never disappoints. The cleanliness upon arrival was exemplary. We always enjoy our stay, the lovely log fire, quiet surroundings and walks literally on the doorstep. Great. We're planning next years holiday.

    A Wee Gem is near perfect for someone like us, needing a Highland base where we ould take our dogs without worry. The location on the banks of the Findhorn, and on the edge of forest with a network of woodland walks is near ideal. The town of Forres is only a few minutes' drive away, and has all the modern amenities required - easy for self-catering shopping, as well and eating out and other entertainments. I would recommend this cottage to anyone seeking a quiet and tranquil place to holiday - and I would have no hesitation of returning, which might be soon.
