"Lovely relaxing stay - it definitely feels like a special place to have a Highland Holiday." February 2019

 "We had a fantastic time here - an incredible place to spend our honeymoon. I hope we'll be back very soon!" January 2019

 "We have loved every minute of our stay here: watching red squirrels at breakfast, long walks round the loch, seeing the scenery change daily (snow topped mountains and a glittery frozen wonderland under dreamy blue skies), relaxing baths, cooking warming meals every night and reading a good book in front of the fire. It has been just the tonic we needed. Thank you for a fantastic holiday."   December 2018

 "The perfect place for a cosy Autumn honeymoon! We loved the fire and the views. The Druie Cafe is amazing and the Wildlife Park was well worth a visit. Can't wait to be back (hopefully with a dog next time!)   November 2018

 "Couldn't have imagined a better place for our honeymoon!! We were both so looking forward to some time alone after such a busy period and the cottage totally surpassed our expectations... Would highly recommend The Cross in Kingussie for a special meal. Already looking forward to our next stay! P.S. We named the squirrels after the Weasleys!"   August 2018 

 "Fabulous week and so good for the soul. We enjoyed the classic Scottish summer week, warm sunshine through to Storm Hector. Thank you Judith for your patience!... The cottage was very welcoming and so relaxing!"    June 2018

 "What a heavenly place to spend a week. The lochside location is breathtakingly beautiful. The sense of tranquility is second to none and the wildlife safari experience has been superb! Red squirrels, a pine marten, a badger, a weasel and deer. The cottage itself is so stylish and comfortable, we will find it hard to leave! We had very high expectations but the Loch an Eilein Cottage "experience" has surpassed them! Thank you to Judith for the warm welcome - everything has been perfect. We have only used the car once this week, it has been wonderful to walk and cycle straight from the door and Glen Einich was magical in fresh snow yesterday! We will return - this cottage is paradise!"    April 2018

 " Lovely, tranquil, peaceful, comfortable and more than we ever imagined. Badgers are very special and red squirrels full of character."    February 2018

 "We know we couldn't have found a better place for our honeymoon. PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!"    December 2017

 "Perfect four days of R and R. Peace, quiet and great walks. Great meals available - wish we'd bought them all here. Should have been longer."   November 2017

 "This was our second stay and it was just as wonderful as the first. The cottage is well equipped, beautifully decorated and in a perfect location. This time we explored by bike and enjoyed the autumnal colours. We loved watching the squirrels an we had a visit from the badger. Overall an idyllic, relaxing stay. We will be back! Thank you Judith and team."   October 2017

 "We have had a fantastic week and have decided just to stay forever! This holiday has been amazing! The cottage is beautiful and the location is perfect. We were lucky enough to have sun and temperatures of 26 degrees... in Scotland... in May! The BBQ was a great idea. We have spent lots of time outside but have loved spending time in the luxury of the cottage. So, as I said, we are just going to stay... only joking! Thanks for all :)"   May 2017

 "What a wonderful cottage in an exceptional location. Every need met. Judith and her team are to be congratulated on knowing just what to provide. Have stayed in this area for 25 years and this is just the greatest. Thank you."   May 2017

 "A beautiful cottage in an amazing setting. The cottage was well kitted out from a hamper of goodies to fresh flowers and every utensil that you can think of! We spent 3 days mountain biking on some great tracks. We hired bikes from Mikes Bikes. We also enjoyed watching all the birds and animals that came to visit. We'll be back!"   May 2017

 "The perfect setting for a relaxing holiday. All the details were thought about and we can't wait to come back! Especially after we got engaged here, forever in our memories now!"   April 2017

 "Wonderful cottage in our favourite place. The warmest of welcomes with milk, hamper and everything we could need. If you're awake and any of the security lights go on, it's a must to get up and look, red deer and a badger visited every night. Great biking, walks and runs and was very lucky to see a Golden Eagle too. Loved breakfasting with the squirrels and birds and will miss this place. Thank you Judith for making it amazing. A woodpecker came to the bird feeder on the last day, wild geese and a fighter jet overhead, swans on the loch too."   March 2017

 "Our second visit and every bit as special as the first one - beautiful cottage, beautiful surroundings - just perfect! Loved the squirrels, badger and deer visiting the garden and best of all, lots of snow at the end of the week."   February 2017

 "The cottage and location were absolutely stunning. We spent our days out and about, walking and doing various activities and then spent the evenings in the warmth of the cottage with the fire going, so cosy! The attention to detail is wonderful, comfy bed, lovely towels and robes and a well-equipped kitchen. Judith also supplied a delightful hamper of treats which was well received! I would highly recommend the cottage."   January 2017

 "We had a lovely time at the cottage and would happily recommend it to anyone. Judith really looked after us, even arranging for a snow plough so that we could have our massages as planned, despite very heavy snow. The cottage is in a beautiful spot and is stylishly done throughout. The bed is really very comfy indeed. Would recommend!"   January 2017

 "The cottage was perfect. From the welcome hamper to the heated bathroom floor, the super comfy bed to the wonderful wood-burner - not to mention the stunning location - the place is finished to a very high standard but still feels cosy and homely. We had both blizzards and sunshine and we made Christmas dinner in the well-equipped kitchen with no problems. There is no phone signal at all in or around the cottage (ideal!) but there is a landline in case of problems. Though we didn't meet Judith she was really helpful over the phone and made sure we got in okay and had everything we needed. So many stunning walks right outside the door and nearby. I can't imagine anywhere more ideal for a Christmas honeymoon."   December 2016

 "It is impossible to use enough superlatives to do the cottage justice, it is simply amazing. Not only is it beautifully decorated, and finished to the very highest of standards, but it sits in an astonishing setting, one that you cannot put a price on. Everyone passing expressed their envy to the wonderful location, it really is the ultimate in tranquility. As it is the only occupied cottage on the lake, and you have to go through a gate to reach it, you have your own lake, a bit different to my normal life! To top it all off you are 5 mins from Aviemore, with all the amenities you need for a perfect holiday. I proposed whilst we were there, there really is nowhere better to make yourself look like the perfect romantic!"   December 2016

 "We are in love with the cottage! We don't want to go home... Not only is it beautiful inside and out, it is an absolute haven. Lots of fantastic touches which made our stay so luxurious. It has been amazing to be able to walk around Loch an Eilein from the front door - fair to say our wee dog Bailey has been well exercised. Thank you so much for allowing us to experience this little piece of heaven. We will definitely be back!"   November 2016

 "What at amazing place! Cottage is perfectly luxurious - setting idyllic! Watched birds from the breakfast table and the antics of three red squirrels every morning. Walked every day in -4 - 13 degrees, watched loch thaw and enjoyed the fire!"   November 2016

 "Your cottage is astonishing! The setting and views are unbeatable and the facilities cannot be beaten. The property has everything you could wish for, Judith and her team have thought of everything. She told me it was the perfect place to propose and she was right. Thank you."   November 2016

 "This has been the most perfect place to stay. No words can describe the view each morning and all the wildlife - breathtaking. Every detail in the cottage was thought out so well and we wanted for nothing. Thank you Judith and team for making our first trip to Scotland so memorable."   October 2016

 "A wonderful experience. Both before the stay and during Judith was very helpful and ensured a smooth arrival. The cottage was beautifully decorated with everything we needed. We appreciated the card and local produce left in the welcome basket. The location is idyllic and although we had planned to visit the surrounding area we spent most of our time at the cottage and around Loch an Eilein. We would recommend this cottage to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and to experience tranquillity, wildlife and stunning views on your doorstep. The only negative is having to leave."  October 2016 

 "Balm for the soul"  October 2016

 "We had the most amazing time and will cherish fond memories as the place we got engaged!! Beautiful cottage in the most incredible setting, even saw red deer running around the back yard."  October 2016 

 "The only downfall was the realisation that I had to leave! A magical place." September 2016

 "Heaven on earth! You've thought of everything. Judith, thank you so much. Can't wait to come back for our 2 weeks in April."  September 2016

 "Beautiful cottage, wonderful setting and 5 star hospitality. Thank you for making it dog friendly."  September 2016

 "A delightful place to stay - with lots to see and do. Gorgeous red squirrels for entertainment... Spectacular views across the loch in some of the best weather we've ever had in the had in the Highlands. Thank you."  August 2016

 "Fantastic two weeks getting away 'from it all' in this beautiful cottage in this amazing area of Scotland. Thank you Judith for always being so helpful. We have done so many beautiful walks, eaten in some fab places - absolutely recommend the cafe above the mountain shop in Aviemore - well worth waiting as very popular! Recommend visiting the RSPB Osprey Centre at Loch Garten - amazing. Have also loved feeding the squirrels in the garden. Thank you Judith for a holiday to remember."  August 2016

 "We've had such a wonderful stay at the cottage. You have thought of everything to keep us in wonderful luxurious comfort all week. We love the decor and the decadence of the linen and towels. We enjoyed the hamper you so kindly left us - thank you! A marvelous host in Judith - thank you. We hope we'll be able to visit Loch an Eilein Cottage again."  July 2016

 "Delightful experience! The perfect antidote for the hustle and bustle of modern life."  July 2016

 “A beautiful cottage in an amazing location. Truly spectacular. Judith did everything she could to be helpful and the place was even better than described in the listing. All the furniture, kitchenware etc was top class. On arriving my wife said "can we stay here forever?!" That sums up the trip pretty well.”  July 2016

 "One word......exceptional. This is an amazing cottage and location. The cottage has been renovated to a very high standard and with great consideration for detail, comfort and well being. It is warm and comfortable, yet bright and airy. The kitchen is very well designed with all that you need to snuggle down, with comfort food, or something fresh and healthy. the view from the dining area is lovely especially if your facing the window with a breathtaking view of the loch. The living room is hard to leave, as there is an excellent log burner as well as a good stock of wood in the room with you, saving a trip outside and the sofa, armchair and window seats are so inviting and comfortable, you will find it hard to get up and go anywhere.

If you do eventually get up, the bedroom is fantastic, again bright and airy with plenty of storage. The log burner in the living room has a glass back which is in the bedroom, so you can safely enjoy your fire even in bed. The bathroom is a wow too, with an nice air jet bath as well as a separate shower with large deluge water head and normal hose head. The bathroom is large fresh clean and made to a very high standard. I think the floor is heated too, but not too sure, but the floor was never cold. We never used the conservatory, but this is also a lovey part of the house. I guess it would be a great place for children to play, but it was just two of us staying. The area around the Loch is stunning, great for walkers, and just beautiful to look at. this house is on it's own with no other neighbors, so it is very quiet in the day and especially at night as well as very private. There are no public roads any where near this place. AMAZING!!!"  June 2016

 “We felt so welcome in this beautiful cottage. Perfect location and host thought of everything to make us feel welcome. Can't wait to come back!”  June 2016
