This was a great location for a holiday with a dog. It was good for walking and seeing birds and animals. It was within easy travelling distance by car to all local towns.

Before writing this review I was tempted to say nothing at all about this gem of a cottage, albeit, purely for selfish reasons - I wanted to keep the place a secret! Myrtle Cottage is without doubt one of the best places that I have stayed during my various stays in the Cairngorms. Its abundance of wildlife, including the Red Squirrels and the elusive Pine Martin, were an absolute delight. The owners, Phil and Jenny, were great, as was the welcome cake and bottle of wine that I received - thank you! My dog Edwin, a Miniature Schnauzer, thought the place was great too, in particular the woods that surrounds the cottage where we would take our walks each morning (certainly beats the noise of Manchester traffic!). The village of Tomintoul is about two miles away and has a pub and a small, but well equipped village shop. All in all a great week away and great value for money. Thank you again to the owners - as the saying goes, I'll be back!

The cottage is idyllically situated and the owners have done everything possible to attract wildlife, making one feel that you really are in the middle of the Cairngorms. I thought there was great attention to detail in equipping the cottage and catering for guests.
Ms White

This was just the most wonderful and well-equipped cottage we've ever had the pleasure to stay in. The best parts I guess are the fact that there was everything you could possibly want, the views were stunning and the cottage itself was immaculately clean. We will definitely come back as a week wasn't really long enough.
Mrs Horscraft

It is very secluded, amongst beautiful scenery, just as described. The furnishings are simple and comfortable and perfectly in keeping with the kind of property this is. It is very well kitted out with everything I could need. I would highly recommend it. The owner's personal attention and care in checking I was happy, was very much appreciated.
