Our Guests Say it Best
  • The Minard Cottage is an amazing accommodation. Everything was clean, tidy and very comfortable. We loved cooking in the spacious and well equiped kitchen. The hand-over of the keys was completed smoothly and parking space no problem. Thanks Marion, for such a marvelous stay! Can be recommended in any case! –  Karoline

  • Our stay at Minard cottage was wonderful. We especially appreciated the large, fully-equipped kitchen and tall showers in both bathrooms. If the weather had been warmer I’m sure we would’ve dined in the back garden. Being situated close to the canal and walking paths is also ideal. We awoke with cheerful birdsong and met many friendly locals, out with their dogs. Just around the corner, at the Clachnaharry Inn, we were also made to feel immediately at home. I cannot recommend Minard Cottage enough and hope to return some day.– Michael

  • Yet again a lovely stay in this property. Clean and uncluttered. Great location looking on to the caledonian canal. Easy access to Inverness yet the feel of being close to the sea and canal.– Jo

  • We enjoyed very much our stay in the cottage. The house was just as it was describe in the announcement, very clean and well equipped with all what is needed for a comfortable stay (large kitchen, two bathrooms, good showers with hot water). It is located within walking distance from the centre, in a quieter area (some cars passing by during the evening, but not late at night). Marion responded quickly and efficiently to our messages when trying to reach the house and also helped one of our friends arriving late.– Paolo

  • The house was very welcoming and comfortable. It had great charm with traditional features as well as all the modern appliances we needed. Quiet location (even though close to road) and great wee pub close by. A great stay! Marion gave clear instructions about entry, and very helpfully offered to post back some left clothing items – fantastic!– Angela
