Keepers Cottage Reviews
4 star reviewThis is a nicely refurbished bothy type property situated next to the river, with excellent fishing opportunities and many walks with spectacular views. The kitchen was nicely fitted out but with an old microwave and no dishes or jugs to use in it. The fridge was actually a small fridge-freezer. The main setback was the woodburning stove for heating, hot water and cooking. The wood supplied was not of the correct quality, being cut up fenceposts and offcuts of kitchen units, etc., and the stove was therefore difficult to control. However, after having spoken to the housekeeper, who has advised the owner, I believe these problems will be rectified quickly. The separate bedroom was nice and cosy, and the settees in the living area were hard to get out of! Certainly not a place for the faint-hearted - extremely remote, no mobile phone signal. We would go back again and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Beware of midges and ticks!!Great to hear that your dogs had a thoroughly enjoyable time and do hope that you will be able to bring them back to enjoy it all again. The kitchen inventory items and garden have been raised with the owner and will be updated/checked as needed, stove will be investigated to make sure all is working properly. While it is a wilderness it is one not to miss to enjoy the vast sky, with the owners quite close by (400m) with other cottages for Wild Caithness it has quite a lot of people about, the phone will work in isolated places but you in the "wilderness" you probably should leave it at home.
2 star reviewWe had a lot of problems,The generator broke down and when that happens the water goes down as well.
But to be fair BRUCE who live in the station house at Altnabreac was our saviour.(Bruce) worked days and night to get us running,we were also offered another property along the road.we decided to stay.well done Bruce he saved the day.Many thanks for your comments. We're sorry to learn of the problems you experienced and will contact the owner to ensure they have been resolved.
