I needed a place to stay while on a business trip (3 nights) to Sutherland. Primrose Cottage and their hosts, Denise and Dave, were very accommodating. The twin room was simple and cosy.
I enjoyed my stay there, and I would recommend it to friends and family if they were staying in the area.

The cottage was very neat and tidy and Denise was very friendly. However we did not realise that this is actually their residence, as one can see from the stuff around that they actually live there, and have just moved out for us! Further more..we were very unhappy about the "sleeping couch" that was provided for the 5th person. It was a rolled out mattress fit for a child...when I tried to discuss this with her, she was not interested at all! I am sure if this has happened to her, she would not have been happy sleeping on a fold out mattress on the floor, fit for a child, definitely not a 'biggish' adult male! The 5th person was an extra income for her, as her occupancy for 4 people was filled! We had no problem in paying for the breakfast that was included! This left a sour taste of money is everything, and we will not be back!!

We only stayed one night at Primrose
Cottage and could have easily extend for another couple of days as the hospitality from Denise was outstanding and the room was very cosy and nice and warm. We liked the
toilette in the cupboard.

Early morning light
Place of discovery, stars
We really enjoyed our stay with you and appreciated all the advice, not to mention the outstanding tour of the observatory. We hope to return one day.

We spent just one night with Dave and Denise at Primrose Cottage but we could easily have stayed longer.
We arrived late and were afraid that we would miss the town's highlights but were happily surprised to hear that a table had been booked for us at a local restaurant and spots had been reserved for the evening's stargazing.
Our room was spacious and quirkily charming. If we find ourselves in Sutherland in the future, we will definitely stay here again.
