This is a superb cottage very comfortable, very quiet - remote but still accessible. A very well equipped kitchen meant it was a real pleasure to prepare evening meals. We were lucky with the weather and able to enjoy several breakfasts and lunches on the deck overlooking the wonderful view. Highly recommended.

My wife and I spent the last week of our honeymoon at Deveron View and we absolutely loved the place! We'd go back at the drop of a hat.

Deveron View was a very peaceful and quiet place. The loudest sound was the wind streaming through the wood burning stove. The attention to detail and the distinctive style of the interior made me very welcome in this cosy cottage. My highlights were the lovely living room with the fire place and the huge, luxury bed. The owners were very hospitable, friendly and helpful.

The stay at the cottage was very relaxing. I particularly liked being able to admire the wonderful view from the window seat in the living room. The cottage is homely and very tastefully decorated.The super king sized bed was perfect and extremely comfortable. We have stayed in many places but this was by far the best equipped kitchen we have stayed in. The owners have considered every essential you could possibly need. This is good as it is not so easy to just pop to the local shop. Having said that there is a Co op in Dufftown which is more than adequate to get supplies. We liked the fact that it was remote yet was on a small road which enabled us to explore the area. We enjoyed going to the Cairngorms, Elgin - seeing the cathedral ruins, Cullen - a lovely coastal town, Loch Ness cruise, long woodland walks- soaking up the wonderful forest with purple heather carpeting the ground. Locally the Auchindoun castle ruins.. It was lovely to return to the cottage and totally relax. For us it was a bonus not to have television, computers etc. There is limited wifi so not totally cut off. I would therefore highly recommend this place to stay.

A very beautiful cottage in very beautiful surroundings.. The owners were fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The cottage was very comfortable, had all the equipment we required for the week and was the perfect escape.

Activities: good for walking and cycling. In Huntly is the possibility of renting e-bikes, so you can make a nice tour.

Location is excellent for a get away from it all holiday.. Well placed for surrounding exploring as there is plenty to see and do in this area of Scotland. The cottage itself is very homely, well furnished and with a very large double king bed with luxurious bedding it makes this property one of the best we have stayed in with Sykes. The view is outstanding and very calming as it is so quiet. Would definitely recommend this property.

The cottage is comfortable, well equipped, and in a beautiful setting, with a wide view across the valley.. A huge, comfortable bed, modern appliances and furnishings, and plenty of free wood for the small heater. The spiral staircase to the bedroom offers a challenge which potential clients should be aware of, although we found it quite OK. The tiny fridge-freezer is annoying, as you have to get on your hands and knees to retrieve items from the fridge compartment at floor-level. The central heating is dependent upon the owner's timing, and is intermittent, often requiring use of small fan heaters and the wood fire to warm the large area - not a problem, but it does take time on a cold day (and it does get very cold at The Cabrach). We would have liked a washing machine for our own use, and were unwilling to use the offered service of 10 pounds a load by the owners to do our washing for us on their machine. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and quite unobtrusive in the main house attached to the cottage.The location is central for exploring throughout that part of northern Scotland, and there are innumerable castles and excellent hiking tracks throughout the region (including the Cairngorms) which are easy to reach on the network of sealed roads. Despite the small imperfections, we would certainly not hesitate in holidaying there again (we spent 11 days there in early April).
