    April Cottage reviews
    The cottage is well maintained with every possible amenity you could want. It is very clean, comfortable and cosy. It is set is stunning surroundings and when night falls and the sky is clear that’s when the magic happens - I’ve never seen stars like this until our stay at April cottage. We visited places like the Glenmorangie distillery and Dunrobin castle plus loads more but it was always a reward to get back to the cottage and relax with a bite to eat and a glass of red. We cannot recommend this estate highly enough it has to be experienced to appreciate it.
    Mr Magee - April 2019
    We loved the estate, the cottage and all the people we came across on Kildermorlie. Mr Ian Duncan the owner was very pleasant and took the time to say hello ... the Housekeepers Kate and Mike were nice people, pleasant, easy to talk to and very helpful. I would return again when possible.
    Mr Ward - June 2018
    The Cottage is amazingly located in a quite valley sorrounded by little lakes. A perfect place to disconnect from the city. The Cottage is very well equipped and furnished with great taste. From the window you can see deers feeding in the evening. You really feel like in a fairytale. All people at the estate are very friendly and keen on helping, they made our stay extremly comfortable. We spent two wonderful weeks there (our honeymoon) and highly recommend the place.
    Miss Toniolo - May 2018
    Another wonderful, restful visit to April Cottage. The cottage is so cosy and comfortable. We enjoyed walking through the estate and beside Loch Morie. Great base for visiting the Black Isle and Cromarty.
    Mrs Miller - October 2017
    My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at Kildermorie in April cottage - a very comfortable, well-equipped home away from home. All the staff (particularly Irene, Billy and Tony) were so friendly and helpful and the estate was just stunning - great to explore by foot or mountain bike. Beautifully remote, although still accessible to the gorgeous sights of the Black Isle and northeast coast of Scotland, and a welcome disconnect from the 'outside world' - no phone signal at all, although the WIFI around the estate office was good when needed. The kennels were more suited for working dogs in our opinion, so our dog just slept in our van. Don't forget your midge spray! Hoping to return again!
    Mrs Cunningham - July 2017
    Beautiful place, lovely cottage. Wifi just outside the cottage. Nature was amazing, we have seen many deer. Only annoying thing was the barking dogs especially at night
    Owners Response: "Thank you very much for your review and regarding the barking - this was a transient problem that lasted less than two weeks ……….. the new Head Stalker started with us and his dogs came with him….. new home/kennels etc and they took a while to settle down which is no longer an issue. Thank you again and glad you enjoyed your holiday"
    Mrs Thomassen - June 2017
    The cottage was lovely, clean & comfortable. The staff on site were very friendly giving advice & making us feel welcome. Fantastic location & scenery, totally remote & away from it all, exactly what we wanted to recharge. Enjoyed our daily treks, great for the mountain bikes :)
    Mrs Stark - May 2017
    Such a homely place and peaceful. It was lovely watching the wildlife. The road was a bit bumpy!
    Mr Woolf - August 2016

    Miss Osickova - December 2014
    A lovely cottage surrounded by breathtaking views. Well appointed and maintained. We were made very welcome by all.
    Mrs Smith - August 2014
    As usual, April cottage and the Kildermorie estate have exceeded expectations, very helpful, friendly and happy bunch.
    Anonymous - June 2014
    We had an idyllic stay here. The grounds of the estate provide wonderful walks and as we enjoy running, we had some lovely routes directly from the door. The weather wasn't great but the cosy cottage was so welcoming on our return that we didn't worry about the rain. Everyone on the estate made us feel very welcome and we would love to return. We saw deer every day and an eagle when out walking. We also took in the Inverness parkrun on Saturday morning- definitely a 'must' for running enthusiasts. Their friendliness was typically parkrun - wonderful.
    Mrs Miller - February 2014
    Lovely cottage in the middle of nowhere and perfect for those wishing to get away from it all. No internet or mobile phone coverage, but peace and quiet instead. The road leading to the estate is a bit "adventurous" and getting to the closest town takes a while, so bringing enough supplies is probably a good idea unless you want to take a trip to the east coast or so anyway.
    Ms Kneisel - August 2013
    Stayed over New Year's Days - this review considers winter time. The cottage is hidden in the woods 45min from nearest town (Ardross) with cell phone coverage. Got to have a decent car - winter tires in winter are a must. We enjoyed the silence, the deer in our front yard and on the hills. We have never seen as many stars and as shining so clearly as over the estate. Really fantastic! Weather changed fastly in the highland estate of Kildermorie - be prepared accordingly when you go for a walk (with rain jacket, and decent boots). Don't forget binoculars. And if it gets late (4pm it was basically pitch black), there are no street lights on the estate - have a flashlight with you. Watch out for deer and sheep on the road out of Kildermorie Estate. The cottage itself was very decent. Everything was clean. We found the cottage nicely preheated.The caretakers welcomed us; there were no problems at all during our stay. They gave us a really good map for hiking on the estate. The fireplace inside the cottage is not in use anymore. Went to eat in Alness at an Indian Restaurant - great value for money. Also, for groceries we went to The Cooperative in Alness.
    Mr Van Bets - December 2012
    Great value for money. A beautifully appointed cottage in an idyllic location.
    Mrs Macpherson - September 2011
    Found the cottage excellent value for money Margret was very pleasant. Had the bonus of drinking spring water which was very tasty. Was allowed to walk around the lake and lots of walking and mountain climbing all exclusive to people residing in the lodge. Love to go back some time in future
    Mrs Pitrola - July 2011
    We have returned to April Cottage twice since the first time. The cottage is as the brochure says and very warm and comfortable. We did not miss the tv at all. We took a portable dvd player and had "cinema night" every evening. Walking is excellent, fishing abundent, deer regularly seen from cottage. There are two little boats that can be taken onto the loch . The only downside to this is that they were available to the lodge and we could only use them if they didnt. This was no real problem but it would be good if the use of one was included for the cottage. There is a Tesco in Inverness where we shopped for provisions before the long but enchanting drive to the cottage. Colloden, falls of shin and rogie falls near by. We plan to return again and recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to get away from it all.
    Mrs Watts - June 2010
    Very neat and clean. Very quiet: no cell phone, no tv, no internet! Close to nature. Ideal for a relaxed holiday. Only 'inconvenient' might be the bumpy track from the main road to the cottage, but then it might just as well be an advantage (quiet location).
