    May Cottage reviews
    As my wife and I meandered down to the Kildermorie Estate a transformation began. A mysterious tranquility dominated as the world and its hectic pace we left behind began to dissipate. We both felt like Gene Kelly in his role in the film Brigadoon. Simply, we were enchanted. This overwhelming feeling was complimented by the wonderful staff who graciously offered a hospitality we never experienced before. We viewed a variety of wildlife and birds whose morning melodies were like a choir. We fished Loch Morie and the streams that slipped down from the Highlands. We visited Allness to enjoy the Station Hotel Pub and fine restaurant. We hiked the estate’s many paths and visited the many ancient area churches. We did not have a vacation in the routine traditional sense but we experienced a beauty of a an unknown magnitude. John Lee

    We had a splendid week at May cottage. We have stayed on different Scottish estates over the years and what really makes Kildermorie stand out is, the friendliness of everyone. They made us very welcome and were keen to help us enjoy our stay on this beautiful estate. The accommodation was lovely and warm. It was clean, with everything you needed for a weeks stay; including a small chest freezer. We would thouroughly recomend this holiday home for a warm welcome to scotland
    Mr Kirton - May 2018
    Excellent accommodation. Enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the area. Lovely scenery, great walks.
    Mr Giles - July 2017
    We had a wonderful stay at May Cottage. It is situated in a very quiet environment, surrounded by nature. The cottage is very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. You can start various walks from the doorstep. Last but not least, Dawn and Ian, the people who were there to welcome us were very helpful and willing to make our stay a perfect moment!

    We stayed at May cottage during May 2016. The cottage was immaculate, cosy and beautifully furnished - couldn't have asked for more. The estate was stunning and Sharon, the housekeeper couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. This was excellent value for money and we cannot wait to return.
    Miss Gallacher - May 2016
    This was the third occasion we have stayed at Kildermorie April& May cottage,so obviously we have been happy in the past.. The road in has always been bad,but we were prepared to tolerate that because of the location and ambiance of the cottages. Since our last visit however,they have logged a large area adjacent to the cottages,cutting out some beautiful old trees and old forest within a few metres of the cottages. The cleared area has been left in a state typical of a logged area which is not conducive to a scenic holiday setting The interior of the cottages are warm clean and comfortable ,however they lack even the basic requirements like salt and pepper and a little bit of sugar etc to start things off when you first arrive. Another difficulty is communication facilities. There is no mobile phone service and the only means of contact is by wifi which is located some 100 m away at the estate office. Again in the past we have tolerated it ,but when the login password is changed mid stay without notification we find annoying. The new key holder Sharon is pleasant and helpfull. Unfortunately we will not be staying in these cottages again. The comments apply to both April and May cottages
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your review State of the Road : - We have been concerned about the poor state of some stretches of the access road for some time. Unfortunately the worst areas do not belong to us, so we have been working with the owners ( Forestry Commission Scotland ) in an endeavour to bring about a satisfactory resolution. I am please to bne able to report that, following a meeting on 1st July, repairs will be carried out to the section between the entrance gate at Breantra and Loch Bad a Bhathaich next month. A comprehensive programme for the whole access road will then follow in spring 2016. Trees Adjacent to Cottages :- Last year, experts advising the Estate on other tree matters cautioned us that the trees closest to the cottages ( 1950s planting by FCS ) were past their best and in danger of falling. Whilst some of the trees were indeed attractive, the risk of them falling actually on to the cottages was something that we could not ignore. Taking professional advice, we felled only those trees needed to take the felled area back to a wind firm edge. The area did look like any other felled area earlier this year, but it is already being cleared up, a new fence installed ( further back from the road and exposing an attractive burn ) and plans agreed with FCS to enable scenic planting of primarily native hardwoods to take place in the spring of 2016. In fairly short order this area will look better than it did before ( with its now out-dated straight lines of 1950s style planting of softwoods ). Basic Requirements :- We used to provide the let accommodation with the customary "basic requirements" such as salt and pepper, but these amenities increasingly were disappearing with departing guests, so we ended the practice. Communication :- Being in a remote area is a double-edged sword. The very remoteness which makes the location so attractive means that there is no mobile telephone coverage of Kildermorie by any service provider, but we have arranged for satellite WiFi to be available to guests.. During the stay of this party, we experienced a security issue, which required us to make an unscheduled change to the password. Unfortunately, this occurred at a time when we were changing some members of staff and there was clearly a failure in communication. We can only apologise that this was a blip in our normal high standard of service. All is now working well again."
    Mr & Mrs Sarah - May 2015
    The cottage was small and clean and was in an area we had not previously visited. My only regret is I had not realised how far it was of the nearest B road and the state of the road in places until booked and details arrived. It was along a single track and then estate road with some potholes, from this experience I would not book anywhere again unless seen on a previous holiday.
    Owners Response: "The Cottages & Castles client is correct, in that the access road is currently in poor condition as a consequence of heavy vehicles using it for plant and machinery for civil works and also for hauling out felled timber. This process is nearly finished, following which the full length of the private road will be regarded and re-surfaced. I am afraid that we are unable to move May Cottage any closer to the public road, but most guests comment that the seclusion is part of its charm."
