Beautiful views across loch linhe from the front of the house. The heating was spot on, everything u need in the large kitchen, lovely big tv for the dark evenings huddled up on the sofa. Cannot fault this place we were gutted to leave. Many thanks to Tim.

You couldn't ask for better. Go out of the door, walk 20 feet and there is the loch. At this time of year we had frost and sunshine. It was beautiful. Will hopefully be back next year.

The cottage was homely, warm and comfortable with the added advantage of no TV reception or wifi....life slowed down. We walked everyday...over the hills behind the cottage and along the shores of the loch, took our canoes out to the Green Isle, read books, played board games and the piano and watched a couple of DVD s. Saw a golden eagle and red squirrel. Had a total break. Thank you.
