The kitchen was fully equipped just be careful not to turn on the waste grinder in the dark its very loud and gives you a fright! would definitely recommend it!

Very clean and spacious, exactly as advertised with the added benefit of milk, tea, coffee and fruit kindly provided. Ideally located for travelling about with a large supermarket within walking distance, but in a very quiet street. An extremely comfortable property ideal for a party of 4. A short drive to Inverness, or take catch a bus just a few metres from the bungalow, takes you to an excellent shopping centre or numerous places for a widw variety of meals.
