I picked the Squirrels due to the location and there being 5 rooms and an enclosed garden for my young nephews. The owners have thought of everything; spare light bulbs, summer and winter duvets, DVD collection, children's cutlery, stair gate, hand wash.. to name a few. We used the log fire which was so cosy. We left the rest of the fire lighters for the next visitors. The beds and sofas were comfy and the garden furniture is lovely. Every room in the house is great and the keyboard brought us a lot of laughter! I'd definitely recommend a stay at the Squirrels and would love to stay again.

The bedrooms are very spacious with comfortable beds and 3 out of 5 have a sitting corner as well. The views from the conservatory/diningroom are breathtaking. The landscape invites you for more then one walkingtrip. Inverness and Fort William are within one hour drive if you are in need of a city. Just enjoy!
