Delightful stay

5 of 5
The cottage is spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped; the owners were very pleasant and helpful; the estate is beautiful; and the walled garden is enchanting. We loved the snowdrops and wildlife (especially the red squirrels). Such a fantastic place.

A slice of heaven

5 of 5
Fantastic property in a fantastic secluded location looked after by a fantastic family. These are people who care passionately about where they live and enjoy sharing this with guests! Lucy was fantastic with regular updates. We particularly enjoyed reading the memoirs of the estate's ex-keeper Bob Watson, a prized find in the cottage's library. Lucy's mum, who owns the estate, gave us more insight into the modern running of the estate. Our 4 year old daughter loved exploring the idyllic estate, visiting "pirate" islands in the middle of the loch, climbing the treehouse and surprised us by walking us up to the ridge over the Bowl from behind the cottage. The track to the Lunch Hut opens into two beautiful walks, either west up over Creag Chliabhain over the ridge back down into the Bowl (best done after reading Bob Watson's memoirs), or beyond to Cairn Dubh and Ben Vuirich. Another stunning walk is along Glen Loch to the remote Loch Loch. The cottage has excellent interior design and is finished to an exceptionally high standard. There are beautiful paintings from Lucy's mum - again a personal touch. This is Scottish country living at its highest level, with unspoilt wilderness on your doorstep. We hope to return.
