The cottage is first class, maintained to a high standard and with plenty of garden space and wonderful views. It is ideally located for Glencoe and other attractions nearby. It is definitely somewhere we would return to stay.

Norrie and Anna were wonderful hosts, informative and fun to talk to. good location to explore Ardamurchan and surrounding areas. Lots of local walks and Isle of Mull very easy to get to.. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to family and friends.
