“Another fantastic week!”
Reviewed September 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Back again after the success of last year. Weather not as good but the grandchildren didn't care- they still had the pool! House spotless as before and everything you could want. To be honest just look at all the other reviews- a marvellous place to stay. Thanks again Joan & Jerry.

“Family holidays 2015”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Once again another fantastic week spent with our three children at Wester Whinhill. Everything we could wish for in a self catering cottage and more. Great weather, splendid scenery and super hospitality from Joan and Jerry. Our children loved the pool and enjoyed talking to the sheep! We look forward to our visit next summer.

“Lovely stay at Dornoch”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We've spend a week at Dornoch and this house was a lovely place to come back to after visiting the region. Both Joan and Jerry are lovely people, who are always there if you need them, but they also have the necessary discretion if you want them to. The property was very clean on arrival and has every possible comfort you need. We loved just sitting in the living room, looking over Dornoch Firth. Kitchen has everything you can imagine and more. We had comfortable beds, nice bathrooms too. Overall: if ever we go back to that part of Scotland, we will certainly contact Joan and Jerry to book their property again.

This was my 3rd time staying here and it just keeps getting better and better.

This was however the first time I'd taken my fiancé and it was satisfying to see she fell in love with the Place (and Dornoch) as much as I had done in the past. we're already starting to think about when we'll be returning.

The accommodation is excellent and kept to a very high standard. There have been a few improvements such as the dishwasher which turned out to be welcome addition as we were traveling with a group of six.

Fantastic holiday, can't wait to go back again

The cottage was all we hoped for and more, Joan and Jerry had thought of everything, it is fully equiped with everything you need. The pool and sauna met expectations especially for our grandson who couldn't have had a better time. We will be recommending this property and plan to visit again in the future. superb!
