Fabulous Cottage
This is a very well appointed cottage for a family group or friends to stay in the highlands of Scotland. The cottage was spotlessly clean with 3 bedrooms and an extra toilet downstairs so the third bedroom remains private for the twin room - great idea. Our hosts were more than helpful with suggestions to visit local attractions and historical sites. The kitchen was very well equipped with little extras. I can recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a luxury stay.

All first class, the accommodation beautiful and of a very high standard! Spotless and modern with excellent shower/bath facilities. An extremely well equipped kitchen, this was our second visit and we will be returning! The owners are very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this property.
Mrs MacLennan

This was our second visit and we will definitely go back. There is nothing to fault with this house. It is spotless, modern with excellent shower facilities and equipped with everything to make your stay enjoyable. The children loved the spacious garden. The owners are very helpful and made us feel very welcome. We would strongly recommend this beautiful property in a lovely setting.
Mrs MacLennan

We absolutely loved our holiday. Thistle Dhu is a beautiful cottage with absolutely everything you could need - we cooked a variety of different meals and baked and had no issues with finding the right utensils etc to do so. The fireplace is lovely although it was a little warm to light it. All of the bedrooms were spotless and the bathrooms were lovely, the bath especially was amazing after a hike up Ben Nevis. Also, the owners were great hosts, they were friendly hosts and made us feel super welcome. We will be back next year!
Miss Cobb

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.
