“Once again.... Perfect!”
Reviewed January 3, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Our third Christmas and New Year running at Hazelgrove Cottage and our stay was still not long enough! We had a friend join us for a few days this time and he was absolutely blown away by the stunning location, the tranquility and the fantastic homely feel of it all. After having had an extremely busy year, Hazelgrove really is the complete relaxation retreat that we need and it never fails to exceed expectations. This year we seemed to have a family of grouse in the back garden on many occasions which was lovely to see. We also saw a number of deer in the area, lots of red squirrels and a variety of birds. The walks through the forest and by the loch shore are so peaceful, you almost forget that anyone else exists! I unfortunately had an unexpected admission to Raigmore hospital overnight whilst we were there but the hospital, treatment and staff were amazing which is a great comfort to know for future visits just in case. Once again, our only disappointment was the fact that we had to leave... But we will definitely be back!!! You really can't go wrong with Hazelgrove and it really does deserve all of the praise it receives.

“Fabulous dog friendly cottage”
Reviewed October 5, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The cottage is in a beautiful location with views of the loch. All you could need for a weeks holiday with your pooches. My 3 absolutely loved walking in the forest. The cottage has a great secure back garden with plenty of room for the dogs to have a mad run around. Lovely to sit in the living room looking at the birds at the feeders & on a couple of occasions, a red squirrel running up & down the trees outside. Didn't want to leave. Can't wait to come back next year. Thanks Fiona & Graham. You have a holiday home to be proud of.

“A very comfortable cottage at a wonderful location overlooking Loch Ness”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We found Hazelgrove on Google Maps during our vacation in Scotland. The photo's on the website looked very promising. We called for the availability, booked it and drove to the place.
Everything was as good as the website promised. Also a first day's grocery package was waiting for us which is a very appreciated gesture.
From the dining table there's a great view over the Loch all the way to the ruins of the probably 1000 year old Urquhart Castle.
The cottage has complete kitchen equipment a bathroom with bath and separate shower, 2 double bed bedrooms and one single bed bedroom. The living room has a beautiful fireplace.
The cleanliness is excellent although dogs are allowed. The owners live next door and are very friendly and helpfull.
Hazelgrove cottage is beautifully located on the slopes of the hills on the east side of Loch Ness . This is the quiet side of the Loch along General Wades road which leads from Fort Augustus to Inverness.
For us Hazelgrove Cottage deserves the highest rating.

“Best holiday ever!”
Reviewed May 28, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I absolutely loved my holiday at Hazelgrove. The location is perfect, elevated above Loch Ness the scenery changes on a daily basis. The cottage was a home from home and excellently equipped. A lot of thought has gone in to making it as user friendly as possible and the owners obviously take great pride in their property. Fiona popped round our first evening and we had a friendly chat. Even though they are next door I only saw Graeme once after that as we returned from a day out. They weren't at all intrusive but were there to help if required.
The cottage is so dog friendly and my two loved playing in the safe garden. The wildlife in the area is AMAZING and my camera got plenty of use. Dolphins, hares, red deer, buzzards, red squirrels...bliss! We even saw deer at the front one morning.
There are excellent walks from the front door, in the forest and along the Loch shore. Plenty of info on where to visit in the cottage.
I'm booking for next year.....and looking forward to it already .
Thank you Fiona and Graeme for a wonderful holiday!

“Not somewhere I'd visit again”
Reviewed April 10, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The house itself is lovely and the garden is a dream for dogs but the owners like to manage the place daily. We like to get away from it all on holiday and just shut the door on the world but, although I told the owners that due to a health issue I needed to take a nap most afternoons they came knocking the door twice. On not getting an answer the owner walked across the fron of the house and looked in the window then returned later to ask if we were hoovering regularly as they'd had new carpet fitted. There were notes and lists everywhere from where to park the car to how to stock the fridge for maximum efficiency. Due to an aga in the kitchen we were asked to leave the doors open to both the utility room and the living room and the draft caused me to have chilblains on my feet. The heating was set with a large "DONT ALTER" notice and the house got very cold very quickly. My husband and I felt as if we were being monitored the whole time and actually left two days early.
The house and owners may suit many people but just wasn't what we were looking for in a relaxing, get away from it all holiday.

Hello Mrs Huntly
Thank you for providing feedback for your stay at Hazelgrove. We are pleased that you liked the cottage and the garden.
We like to meet all the guests who stay at Hazelgrove just to introduce ourselves and to make sure that they are comfortable with the facilities and to answer any questions they may have. I did pop round on a couple of occasions to introduce myself and unfortunately did disturb you when one of the dogs started barking.
We do though expect that guests will respect the cottage, the furniture and fittings when staying in the property and we were disappointed that having allowed 5 dogs in the property instead of our usual maximum of 4, that when I came round there appeared to be a considerable amount of dog hair on the lounge carpet. We asked that you Hoover and thus prevent the hair from becoming trampled in to the carpet and difficult to remove but when we came round again to pick up the linen for changing it appeared that this had not been done. Naturally, this was of concern to us although we appreciate that you did leave the cottage in a clean and tidy condition when you left.
When we met with you and your husband, you confirmed that you were content with everything in the cottage and made no mention that you felt that the cottage was cold or that the two explanatory notices regarding the fridge and the kitchen doors were not helpful. We advise guests to use the “plus one hour” button on the heating control if they require more heat out with the programmed times. If you had let us know that this was not sufficient for your needs, and that you were cold, we would of course have adjusted the heating for you. We do not have a large “DON’T ALTER” notice at the hearing controls.
Within the information sheets provided for guests, we ask that if you find any of the facilities to be malfunctioning, broken or in any way unacceptable to please let us know as soon as possible as we always want to ensure that our guests are comfortable and enjoying their stay at our cottage. It is disappointing that you chose not to bring the matters raised in your review to our attention at the time.

“Simply beautiful”
Reviewed March 26, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Hazelgrove is absolutely beautiful in a stunning location. My husband and I have just spent a week at Hazelgrove and it was brilliant. The welcome pack and evening meal was fantastic. The dogs loved the forest walks and the garden too.
Hazelgrove has everything to make a holiday perfect. Looking forward to our return visit.

“Another fantastic stay”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We have just returned home from another amazing two week stay at Hazelgrove over Christmas and Hogmanay. Once again, the cottage was perfectly equipped and truly is a home away from home. All you need to bring here is yourself, some clothes and money for food. The nearest supermarket is about 25 minutes drive away towards Inverness at Cullduthel but there is a small local shop selling many essential provisions just five minutes away in Foyers. There are plenty of beautiful walks right on your doorstep all with stunning views of either the loch, forests or the surrounding mountains. If you fancy a nice breakfast out, try Cameron's Tea Rooms in Foyers... very nice food with extremely welcoming owners and a beautiful young friendly deer called Blossom who lives just outside. This cottage cannot be praised highly enough with comfortable furnishings, plenty of firewood, a fantastic AGA cooker and stunning views. Not to mention the large secure back garden which our dog enjoys immensely :) Hazelgrove is the perfect place to relax, unwind and just soak in the beauty of nature. We love it so much that we booked our next visit whilst we were there! Fiona and Graeme are fantastic hosts and should be very proud. There are not many self catering cottages that get absolutely everything perfect... Hazelgrove is definitely an exception!
