Please keep checking back as we’ll be adding feedback all the time.

Appartamento indipendente in contesto rurale ben isolato. La sistemazione si trova all’interno di una farm perciò è facile avvistare pavoni, pecore ed altri graziosi ma mai invadenti animali. L’appartamento è arredato con molto gusto, molta modernità e molto comfort. La proprietaria ha lasciato anche alcuni prodotti per la prima colazione. In bagno presenti ottimi prodotti per l’igiene. Consigliatissimo come tappa per raggiungere il nord della Scozia e godersi il relax più assoluto in mezzo alla natura. Per la cena consiglio di comprare qualcosa nel supermercato a Thurso e cenare in casa davanti alla stufa a legna!

Wahnsinnig schönes Häuschen! Super nette Gastgeber und nette tierische Besucher drum herum! Perfekt für eine Verschnaufpause auf der Reise.

This place is great! a beautiful landscape, beautiful space, and Amie really went above and beyond, lending us some toys, travel cot, and high chair for our son. Wish we could stay longer

Amazing one night stay at the Annex as part of our road trip. The Annex was homely and stylish and the thoughtful touches made our stay even more special. Would definitely recommend.

Kirstin – September 2018 (Aberdeen, UK)

It’s difficult to explain just how good the space is at The Annex. We knew from the photographs that it was going to be good, but it way exceeded our expectations. We have been using Airbnb for a little over4 years and have stayed in some pretty amazing accommodation, but this takes it to another level. Quality and thoughtfulness sum it up.

My favourite place in our entire road trip! Everything was just perfectly okay, comfortable and clean! They have everything you need for a relax day and night with beautiful views!

Amankay – September 2018 (UK)

Luxurious and peaceful but also close to local attractions.
The quality of the accommodation was excellent, everything from the to, nespresso machine, dishwasher to the bed sheets. The bath products were also an extra luxury touch. Altogether a gem.

Alastair – September 2018 (UK)

What a terrific place – beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean, thoughtfully provisioned and a warm welcome on arrival. Faultless.

Stuart – September 2018 (UK)

Well designed, luxurious place to stay in a beautiful location with everything you need catered for.
We loved everything. It was furnished to a very high speck. The bed was very cosy & comfortable. It had everything you could want or need. All beautiful here & outside.

Nicola – September 2018 (UK)

Amazing place to stay! Highlight of our trip. It was soooo good to stay in Amie’s annex after all days trekking and trips.

Karolina – August 2018 (Poland)

Séjour parfait! Le cadre est magnifique, avec une très belle vue sur la mer et les collines environnantes. L’annexe est charmante: très bien décorée avec beaucoup de gentilles attentions et des équipements en parfait état (Sdb, cuisine…). Et l’accueil chaleureux d’Amie a rendu le séjour d’autant plus agréable!

Marine – August 2018 (France)

A very memorable and lovely stay at the farm. Amie was a lovely hostess and we were grateful to meet all the animals and get a chance to talk to her. The Annex itself is clean, thoughtfully decorated with all the amenities you could need. We liked the Highland Soap products. We didn’t get to use the fireplace, but were glad to have a washer/dryer and a full kitchen for our quick stay. We definitely recommend her space as it’s a special place with lovely creatures and very sweet hosts!

Yee – August 2018 (California, UK)

Amie is very friendly and welcoming. The annex is extremely clean and well-equipped. It has been refurbished to a high standard and is luxurious and stylish- we loved it. We wished we were staying longer than our one night! It was comfortable and everything had been thought of. `

Sara – August 2018 (England, UK)

An amazing place, beautiful surroundings and a wonderful host. A great apartment you’ll be glad you stayed. Highly recommend!

David – August 2018 (UK)

Fantastic stay in a beautiful annex
The hosts had thought of everything. Extra covers and heating if it gets cold, dressing gowns and slippers for the extra touch. A decent hairdryer! A fantastic shower, tv – the place is finished to a very high standard. There was an extensive dvd collection and board games which were perfect for a rainy night. Oh and delicious fresh free range eggs from the hens outside were provided for breakfast 😋

Kirsty – August 2018 (UK)

We had a wonderful stay at Borlum House. It’s in a great location and Chris and Amie were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. We would highly recommend this as a place to stay!

Gareth – July 2018 (England, UK)

If you search for a little peace of heaven…. go visit this place. We had never seen such a well equiped house, decorated with so much care and nice little kind details. Amie and Chris are very very kind hosts who share their enthuasiasm for animal and wildlife and do everything to make you feel at home. They well succeeded in this!! Thank you for all, goodluck!!!! We would like to visit your place again if we come back to Scotland..

Rob – July 2018 (Netherlands)

Umwerfendes AirB&B! Sehr modern und mit viel Geschmack eingerichtet! Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl dort! Die Unterkunft ist auch mit einer Küche ausgestattet und wir schätzten es sehr, selber kochen zu können!

Christine – July 2018 (Switzerland)

Absolutely lovely property. Every amenity you could want, and then some. Amie was very friendly and the stay was fantastic. Very quiet, and set far back from the main road (good to know when you’re looking for it). We especially loved getting to see the highland cattle and the Shetland sheep.

Anne – July 2018 (NY, United States)

Beautiful, roomy and tastefully appointed property. Wish I could have stayed longer. Fully fitted kitchen within property but a short drive to Thurso where a selection of good affordable restaurants. Quiet location.

Maureen – July 2018 (UK)

La tranquillità del posto la gentilezza e disponibilità dei proprietari l’appartamento fornito di tutto quello di cui si può avere necessità

Lorenzo – July 2018 (Italy)

Don’t miss this little gem!!
Absolutely everything, the most comfortable , clean place we have stayed. Room to spread, easy and comfortable to relax in. The extra little touches were so appreciated. There is a little shop close by to buy food needs and restaurants are a short drive away. Hosts and family were so very , very friendly.

Barbie – July 2018 (Australia)

Äusserst liebevoll eingerichtetes Cottage auf einer Farm. Alles ist neu und bis ins kleinste Detail gut durchdacht. Highlight waren für uns die drei Hochlandrinder! Amie ist eine herzliche Gastgeberin!

Iris – July 2018 (Chester, UK)

This is 5* accommodation. Beautifully renovated cottage with every luxury.

Hilary – June 2018 (Lamlash, UK)

WOW! You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at this fantastic place. Amie is a perfect host with to many special touches to list here. If your planning a stay in this area then choose this one it’s fantastic

Mark – June 2018 (Aldridge, UK)

Absolutely everything that a traveller needs was available. It was great to have a washer dryer for use. It was wonderful to walk around your farm and see the animals, especially the highland cows! All inclusions were of the highest possible standard with the very best bed we have ever slept in! Congratulations Amie and Chris.

Kerry – June 2018 (Australia)

The Annex can be described in one word, WOW, it’s absolutely amazing. It has been well designed by Amie, it has a modern contemporary style, and provides everything you need for an exceptionally comfortable stay. We and our two dogs were made to feel incredibly welcome by Amie & Chris, they are very sociable hosts with lots of local knowledge. The location it beautiful, perfect for some very wonderful beaches and an ideal base for visiting that part of the Northern Scottish Coast. We would highly recommend a stay at the Annex.

David – June 2018 (Storrington, UK)

Logement neuf et ultra confortable. Tout y est, chauffage, feu de bois, elements de cuisine, lave vaisselle, machine à laver, etc, c’est parfait. La vue est magnifique. Les animaux de la ferme sont accessibles. C’est grand et bien pensé. Je recommande vivement.

Astrid – June 2018 (France)

Warm welcome and amazing property. Furnished to a very high standard and in a great location.

Toby – June 2018 (UK)

This is the PERFECT farm cottage. The cottage itself is stylish, new, clean, and comfortable. Best AirBnb bed and linens I’ve ever experienced! Amie put amazingly thoughtful touches all over the cottage and was a great host. We loved the farm itself and enjoyed the animals every day. HIGHLY recommend this cottage!

Stephanie – June 2018 (United States)

Honestly the best Airbnb we’ve ever stayed at. This place is on another level! Its on a lovely farm set back in the hills of Reay. Has a woodburning stove, own-farm eggs, oh and a nespresso machine for the morning! Lots of thoughtful touches that we’ve never seen anywhere else. 100% coming back, (didnt want to leave actually). Perfect for the NC500. Amazing value for such luxury (p.s try the whiskey and honey soap!)

Will – June 2018 (Peterborough, UK)

Amie’s annexe is stunning, very much the high end of Airbnb. Amie and Chris were so friendly and chatty and happy to show us round the farm (and let us feed the orphaned lambs, aaah!). We had a bit of an adventure as Amie’s peacocks had run away a couple of days previously and we were very chuffed to find them on our evening walk, and help bring them home. We’re seasoned Airbnb-ers, but this was one of the most memorable Airbnbs we’ve ever stayed in, for the warmth and openness of our hosts and the stunning location. Highly recommended.

Jane – May 2018 (London,UK)

I’ve been working with Chris and Aime to help get The Annex ready for the first guests in May and am so excited for this luxury couple’s retreat to open it’s doors!  I’m already booked in for late summer and just know that with their passion and attention to detail this is going to be a wonderful place to call home during my Scottish Highlands adventure!
