Cottage was beautifully furnished and kitted out to a very high standard. Unlike many highland cotttages you can walk to nearby hotels for lunch dinner or just a drink and also have fabulous walks on your doorstep. We loved every minute of our stay here and will definitely be back

Whilst the smaller property looked very nice, the lodge was absolutely beautiful and finished to a very high standard. Both myself and partner had a fantastic week and loved every minute at the lodge. Beautiful views, great location and amazing property. Wish we could have moved in permanently and would jump at the chance of a return visit.

The cottage is gorgeous; quiet, well equipped for cooking, cosy, really comfy bed, lovely bath and wood burner. It is much bigger in real life than it looked on the pictures and really clean and well laid out. We came up from London by sleeper on the Friday night and picked up a hire car at the station - really straightforward, then loaded up on groceries for the week ahead. The ferry crossing was easy and we had arrived within 45 mins. During the week we visited deserted beaches on the west coast, distilleries, Oban and Glencoe and went walking around the lochs. Norrie and Anna looked after us really well - very friendly, great marmalade and fresh eggs and always on hand if we needed them. We felt very welcome. A perfect mini break - highly recommend and would love to return.
