“Relaxing with amazing views”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just spent 4days at this beautiful holiday home, on arrival I couldn't believe how peaceful it was. Inside the holiday home was a warm welcoming feeling, everything there you could possibly what to make your stay perfect. The views over the loch are stunning from the holiday home, would recommend this to couples and families. My friend who has disabilities and I had some lovely walks along the loch and into the small village which is just a short distance. If going out in the evening make sure you have a torch at this time of year no street lights between village and holiday site, but felt safe walking. Local pub quiz was a good laugh, and would recommend The Shore hotel for a first class meal again views from the restaurant are stunning. Yes overall a much enjoyed stay at Hightrees and would hope to return again & again.

“In need of some TLC”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I was really looking forward to our stay at this holiday retreat but was a bit disappointed when we arrived and saw the property. The outside of the building is cracking in places and was not a very welcoming sight. The outside seating area has a nice new looking bench but it is sitting on a deck that is very slippery and slimy, we never once took the opportunity to sit here as it is overshadowed by quite a bit of foliage, ferns and weeds. The house itself inside was spacious, and well equip, however the floorboards creak with every step taken, getting up in the middle of the night to get a glass of water basically woke up the whole house, very noisy! The beds were not comfortable at all, you could feel every spring and we honestly did not have a good nights sleep for the duration of our stay. On the 3rd day I went in search of the washing machine as I knew there was meant to be one somewhere, I soon found it hidden in a utility/store room under the house, after opening the door and taking a quick look inside I decided against venturing in here as I was unsure what I might come across. All in all, the accommodation was quite disappointing but the area/scenery and facilities on Drimsynie estate made the stay very enjoyable, if I was to return, which I'm sure we will I would definitely book one of the lodges on the estate.

As the local letting agent for Hightrees I want to thank you for taking the time to contact me directly with your comments, and for now putting them on this review.

I had briefed the owners about your comments. They came up to their property to check in detail the points you raised. I have just been along to Hightrees to do my own check.

The deck area was not slippy today, but I agree that the shrubs should be trimmed. That will be done. The basement utility room is more than adequate for the job. having said that, there is also a self service laundry on the Estate so there is an alternative place to do any washing if required. Hightrees is advertised as sleeping 6+3. The description takes care to explain the extra sleeping arrangements. When the extra beds are in use these are put-u-up type beds and it is fair to say that they do not have full mattresses as on the beds - but that is usual for this type of bedding. The floor boards did creak - not sure what's going on there, I can assure you it was not like that the last time I was in the property. That will be investigated.
