IT WAS VERY WELL EQUIPPED AND COMFORTABLE

The accommodation was ideal for our purposes. It was very well equipped and comfortable. The location was very convenient as we were attending a conference in Smithton and it was only 10 minutes travel to get there. We have no complaints and will be happy to recommend it to other people who may be staying in the area. Also, if we are back for the same conference next year, we will most likely book for that as well😊 A couple of practical suggestions to make it even better: - * It would've been helpful to have a pizza tray for cooking pizzas, and also a cutter for the same. * it would be a good idea to replace the low energy bulbs for LEDs, especially in the downstairs toilet, where we found that the lamp had only come up to full brightness by the time you were leaving!

Dear Alan Thank you for your suggestions we are replacing our bulbs with LED's. We would love to welcome you back. Alison

IT FEELS LIKE HOME FROM HOME AND THE REASON WE KEEP COMING BACK IS THAT IT IS SIMPLY THE BEST ACCOMMODATION AROUND

Our return to the Dairy for the 4th time says it all. It feels like home from home and the reason we keep coming back is that it is simply the best accommodation around. The added extras of wine flowers and biscuits are especially appreciated as is the warm welcome we receive from Alison. Situated just outside Inverness makes it ideal for exploring the Highlands and the beautiful Black Isle plus the onsite cafe serves first class food. Also worth a mention are the dairy's own products- ice cream milk and yoghurt. Definitely to be recommended.

EVERYTHING WAS LUXURIOUS, VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE

We had a wonderful stay in Simmental cottage and Alison's welcome was warm and friendly. Everything was luxurious, very clean and comfortable, with all the kitchen equipment we needed. We're missing the lovely strong hot showers with the beautifully soft water now we're back in the Midlands - back to frizzy hair!! We were really lucky to see a pod of pilot whales in the Moray Firth and that was a higlight of the holiday. On a more 'everyday' level, our boys were very grateful for the wifi (as were we), and we loved the ice cream in the dairy. There's so much to do in the area that we didn't see everything we wanted, so we'd love to come back. We're certainly recommending to family and friends.

THE ADDED TOUCHES OF WINE, MILK AND BISCUITS FOR THE GROWN UPS AND TOYS FOR THE CHILDREN REALLY MADE A LOVELY WELCOME

Enjoyed a lovely few days in Simmental. Both the adults and children were well catered for in our spacious, clean accommodation. The added touches of wine, milk and biscuits for the grown ups and toys for the children really made a lovely welcome. The location was great for exploring the area and the children loved the playground and ice cream on site too. We would definitely consider another visit.

COULDN'T FAULT A THING

We stayed 3 nights at the cottage for our wedding weekend and found the cottage just lovely! Couldn't fault a thing. We had a problem with our heating on the first night but quickly rectified by Alison next day! Thanks for such a enjoyable stay. Highly recommend everything at The Dairy x 😊

WE HAD A FABULOUS TIME

Myself and a group of friends and family rented the cottages in April. We had a fabulous time and they were perfect for our needs - we were getting married and it provided a relaxed atmosphere for everybody. Special mention to the complimentary yoghurt we were given - an ideal breakfast for a nervous bride!

THERE WAS A THICK COAT OF SNOW IT MADE THE WHOLE PLACE EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL

We stayed on mid February 2016 when there was a thick coat of snow - it made the whole place even more beautiful. The accommodation is in excellent condition and every effort has been made to provide everything that you might need. Would definitely recommend the Dairy at Daviot.

THE BEDS WERE A DREAM! SO COMFY!

We absolutely loved staying in the Simmental Cottage! It was super clean, comfortable, spacious and warm. We were so appreciative of the little extra things that were left for us to get us started with our stay, such as dish soap, laundry soap, and even a lot of movies for the kids to watch. The beds were a dream! So comfy! We cannot wait to return.

THE COTTAGE WAS LOVELY AND VERY COMFORTABLE

We stayed as a family of four visiting relatives in the Highlands. The location is great - close to Inverness and its fabulous restaurants, but up the hill and on the way to the Highlands and easy to get to any of the coastal towns east of Inverness. The cottage was lovely and very comfortable. The kitchen is genuinely well equipped and we really appeciated the full size dishwasher. The cottages are set around an amazing old cobbled courtyard. Alison is wonderful and even organised some great weather for us! Philip and family (London)
