Everything was as described, Helen was prompt in addressing queries, and the main living area didn't feel crowded, even though we were 4 adults sharing. The place always seemed warm and we adjusted the heating if we needed to - it worked fine. Our only negative comment is that the cottage isn't really equipped for cooking. As we were on the island over New year, we planned on making meals rather than eating out as we weren't sure what was open. On arrival however, we realised that there are only a couple of pots and pans and, although there are a few utensils, the kitchen isn't really up to anything more than the basics. Still, it's only an issue if you want to cook and we made do! Otherwise everything was grand and we would stay again.

The cottage is very cosy and boasts a whole load of equipment to make our stay comfortable! Including a washing machine, cooking utensils and wi-fi.....!! The owner (Matt) was very helpful and provided additional information about the surrounding area and places to take the dog for walks. Would recommend and will definitely be returning!

Lots of room, warm and very comfortable. Loads of information on the area. We visited Fort William, Glencoe, Loch Lomond,loch Fyne Oyster bar, Edinburgh and enjoyed a great Hogmanay ceilidh in the town. Absolutely loved our holiday and the owners of the property were so very helpful and made us so welcome. We will definitely go back . Great.
