    Fantastic property in a stunning location. Very well equipped, warm & comfortable, felt like a home from home. Beautiful barn conversion finished to a high standard with some lovely well thought out features. The balcony overlooking the river & mountains around you was a treat and a lovely bonus. Owners very friendly, welcoming and happy to help if needed but non-intrusive and respectful of privacy. Great location for exploring the area in different directions. I'm already planning to return later this year. Local shop 5 mins away and a good sized Tesco in Dingwall just 15-20 mins away. Thank you George & Caroline for renting out your property, giving other people the chance to stay in such a lovely place.

    Fantastic cottage and the location was excellent. Will definitely use again.

    Very comfortable accommodation and a good base for getting about. Beautiful river and forrest walks right from the door. Scenery is just breathtaking. Photographs don’t do it justice you have to see it for yourself. We stayed in October and the Autumn colours were amazing and the weather was good. Would highly recommend a stay at this property and hope to return one day soon.

    We found the cottage to be an amazing retreat, a barn conversation that is very comfortable and well equipped. The surrounding countryside is stunning with plenty of things to do. The cottage is lovely and just steps from river walks. We found it a great base for exploring the highlands, although there isn’t shops on the doorstep a short drive will take you to local villages where there’s train stations and everything you need. If you’re looking for peace and tranquility look no further, we would definitely return. We found the owners George and his wife to be friendly and helpful Thanks again for our stay.

    Absolutely wonderful, we stayed here for our honeymoon and had a lovely time, there are plenty of walks close by and the scenery is stunning. Lovely cabin, couldn't ask for more. Just be prepared for your trip before arriving because there's no wifi, scarce signal and no shops close by (although that adds to the charm of the place).



    out of 10

    super location for touring north of Scotland, roads are good and supermarket within 20 minutes, small shop closer. Cottage has everything you need for two, peace and quiet guaranteed. Lovely walks from the cottage, close to waterfall. This was our second visit to Drovers Rest and would love to return again.
