“Wonderful”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Just returned home from staying at The Hoose what a wonderful place really home from home. Very relaxing and everybody around really nice and friendly. Looking out the window onto harbour. Really wished we could have stayed longer

“Lovely cottage overlooking the harbour”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

Lovely cottage, very well equipped and tastefully furnished. Good kitchen facilities alhough a bit squashed in living area if we had been 6 persons. Excellent bedrooms and linen with lovely views and large garden at rear. One downstairs shower but beautfiul additional upstairs bathroom with large oval bath. Easy to park outside and excellent location for visiting Sutherland and Caithness. We had great days out in John O'Groats and Dunrobin Castle. NB, We ended up eating in more than we anticipated as there weren't many good restaurants nearby.

We now have now extended our kitchen into the whole barn attached to the cottage so we have a very large kitchen/dining/living space. The sitting room seats 6 people comfortably. We also now have an additional large playroom/study upstairs over the new kitchen. Do have a look at the photos.

“Peaceful setting, excellent sight seeing”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A cosy home, in a beautiful setting. Would definitely return. Only one 'inconvenience': the lack of a table for meals.
