Thistle Dhu was an amazing oasis of calm, quiet and comfort in the Highlands. We were beyond comfortable in this spotless, well-equipped home. Thistle Dhu provided a base for our Highland adventures that we were happy to come "home" to each day.
Mrs Grabowski

Thistle Dhu is the best of all the places we have stayed in over the years and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a break in Scotland.
Mr Sanderson

Thistle Dhu is certainly somewhere we will consider revisiting in the future. The house itself had everything we could have asked for & the local area was ideal too. It felt like a 'home' rather than just a holiday house. The owners were great to deal with from our initial enquiry to during our stay. The newish house was brimmed with everything you could possibly ask for & more ! It's got 4 toilets, 4 big bedrooms & other lovely rooms...and a lovely big garden. It's in a great location, not far off the Main St (shops & eating out) & near the Golf club (good for food too). There is loads to do in the local area, including the Highland Folk Museum, Landmark, Highland Wildlife Park, the Cairngorm Funicular, loads of great lochs & walks etc. We had the pleasure of seeing the local famed tending his new born lambs (which the kids loved).

Thistle Dhu is extremely well furnished and equipped and ideal for a family holiday. It is situated in a quiet, picturesque location, but within a short walk of local shops and the railway station. The friendly helpful owner lives close by and are available in case of any problems. The area offers plenty of activities.
Mrs Easto

An excellent property with everything you could need for a very comfortable stay. The accommodation was superb and we will definitely be returning.
