Review - August 2022
Our stay at Coorie Doon Cottage was absolutely wonderful! We had been traveling through Scotland for a couple of weeks and just needed some chill time, and this was the place! With gorgeous comfy beds, blankets, a great fire place we were in cosy heaven. The outside area was wonderful to read a book and watch the boats come past. Anne and Steve have created a home away from home with all the comforts we needed! Our family can’t wait to return!!


Review - July 2022
Dear Anne and Steve,


I hope you are all well. We arrived back in Dubai early this morning. We had the best time staying at Coorie Doon, and want to really thank you for the beautiful little place you created. We didn’t want for anything and everything we needed was there, a real home a way from home and we could just relax. My son has rated it a 10/10 stay and we all agree!  We can’t wait to come back!


Hello Anne and Steve,


We enjoyed our stay at Coorie Doon despite the rain.  Thankfully we did manage to coorie doon!

The Cottage was well equipped, comfortable and tastefully furnished/decorated.

When we did sit out in the garden it was a lovely spot to enjoy the sun and watch the sailing boats pass by.

I enjoyed reading the book you left which helped when visiting the historical sites in Kilmartin Glen.

Best regards,

Tom (Aberdeenshire 2nd July)
