October 2011 Just to say we had a fantastic week, yet again, up in Laide, even a cruise out of Gairloch and managed to see dolphins, who obligingly swam along side the boat. Philip

Sept 11 Probably the best cottage we’ve ever stayed in. The layout, facilities and sheer thoughtfulness of the finishing touches made this the best week possible. Coming here was like a home from home. Lewis and Louise.

June 2011 I very much enjoyed the week in June in your fantastic cottage. It’s the best place I’ve ever been with just everything you could possibly need (especially for the occasional rainy day!). The area is so beautiful and I wish I could have stayed longer. Best Regards Renate

March/April 2011 Many thanks for providing such a comfortable and homely cottage. A great base for exploring the area. We really enjoyed watching all the birds from the kitchen and were also delighted to see the pine martin at the window a few times. Marie and Colin

March 2011 We had a fantastic time and would love to stay again in the future. Many thanks Jill

Just a quick email to say how very much we enjoyed our stay at Rose Cottage. It was very cosy, warm and comfortable. The views from the cottage are lovely, we are really missing them as we are the Pine Martin and the array of birds which visit the garden. Our walks round Laide Wood and the surrounding areas were a real treat.
We are hoping to return in the not too distant future so for now thanks once again for sharing Rose Cottage with us.
With our very best wishes, Lynn and Colin.–

We arrived home from Laide yesterday evening having had (yet again) a marvellous week. Weather was mostly good and we managed a couple of evening barbecues on Mellon Udrigle beach.
It really is a most fantastic part of Scotland. Garden full of green and chaffinches, great, blue & goldfinches. Look forward to going up there again – sooner rather than later. (Fantastic to come to a self catering cottage where the knives work). Philip.

Just to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in Rose
Cottage. It really was lovely and the weather was nothing short of wonderful. I hope we can repeat this another year. Kind regards, Barry

Just to say a big thank you. We had a great week. We thoroughly enjoyed being at Rose Cottage – so homely and cosy. A brilliant base for exploring the area.

Many thanks.Carolyn

We had a great time thanks – weather was fairly good with 2 really nice days….The cottage was great in every respect – we wish we could have stayed for the other week — you may hear from us again
Regards Paul

We must congratulate you on such an excellent Cottage, beautifully appointed and fitted out. We think of all the ones we have stayed in over the years, yours is by far the best we have used. On top of that the weather so far has been kind to us as well!

We would like to thank you for a great time we had at Rose Cottage in Laid.
We think the house is great. (complements to the maintenance people!)
There is too much to say thank you for Kind regards
Filip & Evelyne
