This place is amazing! I can't really explain in words what awaits you when you arrive at Watersedge but myself and my husband were stunned into silence for the first day of our stay at the beautiful house and the mind blowing scenary from the beautiful french doors and balcony of our room! Bill and Gill are fantastic hosts, warm, friendly and very welcoming. Our trip has been amazing x

Room Tip: We had the rrom with the free standing bath. Absolutely gorgeous!

The only negative points we can make are that it felt a little too pristine, and the couple we stayed with had no tea or coffee in their room and thats it. The beds are lovely, the hosts are wonderful, theres a great choice for breakfast and every amenity is provided. The biggest mistake you can make is not to spend any time on your balcony.

We stayed here for only one night at the end of a long trip around Scotland and only wish that we could have stayed longer. The house is simply gorgeous -- lots of personal, tasteful touches, like the welcoming drink and treats, as well as fruit, shortbread and a selection of teas in the bedroom (and umbrella too!). All rooms look out to the water and should weather permit, just sitting out in the terrace is lovely. The bed and sheets are probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in, the bathroom is modern with a huge tub big enough for two. Everything is just luxurious, elegant and sophisticated. A perfect place for adults on a romantic getaway. Bill and Gillian are wonderful and welcoming and well-traveled, which shows in their wonderful house. I can't recommend Water's Edge highly enough.

We were delighted with our accommodation when we arrived at Water's Edge. Our hosts were friendly and our room was beautiful, with thoughtful little touches throughout. The view from the balcony across the Moray Firth to Castle Stuart golf club was amazing. Our meal at The Anderson was just what we needed to complete a thoroughly enjoyable night away.

My wife and I returned to Water's Edge after orginally visiting here in September 2009. What a beautiful place this is. Set on the very banks of the Moray Firth you can't get any closer to the water or the Dolphins!!!! Gillian and Bill are simply wonderful hosts, happy to chat and help you whilst leaving you to enjoy your stay. The house is immaculately clean and welcoming. Keep an eye out for the ducks in the pond. The Fea family are looking forward to returning again in 2012.

Room Tip: Give Gillian and Bill a call.
