“Home from home”
Reviewed 9 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Although it only takes less than 30 minutes to drive to Pinewood Steading from Inverness, the location on a country hillside, with sheep grazing in the field next door, and glorious views of Beauly Firth across the valley, makes for a natural setting of peace and calm.

The master bedroom is gloriously large, and the main living and kitchen areas combine in an open setting so the views of the Valley and the Firth are always present.

Jane has added some personal touches, and has decorated with just enough quirky items to make everywhere feel homely, while the wood burner in the living area adds a real cosy feel in the evenings. We were only staying a few days but it immediately became a habit to get back at the end of the day and make straight for the fire to add to that feeling.

Overall the Steading is well equipped, with local produce and products adding to the individual feel (I loved the Scottish soaps and the welcome basket. When we left I “kidnapped” what remained of the whisky marmalade).

A perfect base to explore the area, and a comfortable setting to relax. Definitely somewhere to return to when we are in the area again.

“Light filled, beautifully presented lodge with stunning views”
Reviewed 26 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

A wonderful place to relax and appreciate the scenic beauty and grandeur of the highlands. The master bedroom is a large airy room, the living area and kitchen are blessed with stunning views of the surrounding area. The lodge has every facility anyone could wish for, including a great bathroom with a bath for soaking weary walkers muscles and a high pressure shower. The wifi is also excellent.

The place is great for dog owners, little things like an enclosed area at the rear with a seperate entry door and a hose for cleaning muddy paws. The area is excellent for both local walks and as a base for the more famous west highland walks. It is even convenient for a quick trip into Inverness.

“Wow!! 1st words when we walked in!!”
Reviewed 26 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Our first impression when we drove down the drive was Ooh this looks nice, Our impression when we walked inside after meeting Jane on the drive was WOW. The house is fresh clean and tidy right through and not over cluttered.
The Master bedroom is very big and airy and the smaller twin room is compact but big enough for a weeks stay for 2.
The living area is well equipped with smart tv and free sat, The house has WiFi but it is a community WiFi as you are so far away from normal utilities. The WIFI works well although lagged a few times if all using it but that is to be expected.
The kitchen is equipped enough to cook a full meal from scratch and basic condiments are available from previous guests, with 5 ring gas hob electric oven and grill, microwave, dishwasher and a washer drier it is a well equipped holiday dwelling. The views from the kitchen window over the Beauly firth are wonderful and across the fields behind the house you have highland cows.
Jane is a lovely host and very knowledgeable about the area and although we didn't need her assistance I'm sure she would do anything possible to help with your stay.

Thank you so much for the 5 Star Review and wonderful words, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay here! We are definitely on hand, if needed, to assist our guests get the most out of their time - we know holiday time is special time! Just a quick note that all basic condiments, such as tea, coffee, sugar, oil, olive oil, ketchup, mustard etc are provided by us - we try not to have previous guests items left behind, but sometimes it might happen. We try to stock the Steading so that guests don't have to bring the basics when they come on holiday but can focus on packing their holiday clothes instead! We hope to see you all back one day!

“Fantastic Holiday Accommodation”
Reviewed 30 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Just returned from a great week at this property with friends and our extended family of 6 (well behaved) labradors. Stunning views from the property which was itself gorgeous and had everything we needed for a truly relaxing week.

Lovely welcome hamper on arrival and the Steading has lots of little touches which just add to the whole experience. Very comfortable, stylish accommodation.

The enclosed garden was perfect for us - the visits from the cows and sheep in the next field and the sunsets with glass of wine in hand will not be easily forgotten.

Lot's to do in the area, from dolphin watching to lovely Glen Affric and the owners provided a very helpful welcome pack including walk recommendations.

Highly recommend.
